WonderWoof is a new iOS app – joining the myriad of other such apps – aimed at dog-owners. This one helps dog owners track, train and ‘socialize’ their dog. They stay connected to the pooch via an on-collar ‘bow-tie’ connected device which will be made available to purchase this summer. The device is a tracker and pedometer for the dog and connects to the owners app, but the app can also be used on its own.
Dogs can get a profile, while the app does goal setting for health objectives, tracks exercise progress, goals and ‘bones’ earned; gives reminders about medical, grooming, food and playtime and will socialise the dog via a Twitter feed. Each bow tie is 3D custom-printed.
Pre-orders can be placed here. London-based CEO, Betsy Fore, says it’s “sort of like Facebook meets Runkeeper for dogs.”
