I highly recommend this app. It’s a must-have!

This app is purely for fun. Upload images or video of your pooch and make your pet talk. It will surely make you laugh. With well over 3,000 reviews on iTunes, most of which are 5-star, I would say this is a fun and entertaining app. For the best user experience, make sure to take advantage of the tutorial before diving right in.
This is another fun app! It has loads of options for fun and funny sounds — like dogs barking, squeaky toys, knocking, doorbells, clickers, and many more. Most are funny, but a few can be a bit scary (like the growling dog)! When I was playing with the app and I got to the dog whistle, it really did get my toy poodles attention. My dogs seemed to really get a kick out of this app. It’s definitely something fun to play around with.

Excellent app if you are looking to adopt a fur baby. Coverage area includes the U.S. and Canada. As soon as I opened this app, before I knew it I was viewing pages of Rescue dogs within a short distance of my home. You just have to insert your zip code. The app has lots of info, pics, and slideshows. You can customize it for your personal specifics. Whether you are looking to adopt or not, you could still help these little guys possibly find a forever home by sharing their info on social media. The app offers an upgrade if you want to do even more specific searches. I didn’t do the upgrade.

There are over 25,000 sitters listed across the U.S and Canada. Simply enter your city or zip code.
