The Global Dog Wants To Make Your Dog a Star
Obviously, being a dog has never stopped mega influencers from taking over Instagram or other social media sites, but there aren’t too many apps that act like social media designed specifically for dogs.
Until now, with Global Dog. Global Dog is an iOS-based app (with web-based opportunities if you don’t have an iOS device) that lets dog lovers connect with each other, and even better–facilitates dog foster and adoption situations with ease.
Global Dog can show you local dog-friendly places to hang, and activities that you and your pooch will want to check out, and can even let you follow other dogs’ adventures while others follow yours.
And best? Global Dog awards you with coupons and freebies just for posting pics of your dogs! Because really, isn’t that all that’s really post-worthy in the world anyway?
There are five key features of the app. Photo-sharing is obvious and allows you to share all the cutest pics of your pooch. I love the Groups/Meeting coordination that lets users interact with other users based on their locations, interests and dog breeds. As it’s in beta stages, there are only a handful of metro areas that are currently featured, but as it grows the interaction and engagement will grow with it, and things like the Dog-friendly map finder will also be more populated.
The app will allow you to see what local (participating) shelters have adoptable dogs, and if you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to find a foster or adoptive home for your pup, you can do so within a community of those who love dogs so.
The Global Dog also gives rewards, freebies and coupons from various brand partners simply for being part of the community and posting pictures. Already, celebri-dogs Norman the Pomsky and Stella the Frenchie Bebe are fans, and just in case you happen to be dogless (but, why???), you can create a profile just to follow the four-legged fun of virtual furry friends all over!
