This dog-friendly city is about to get friendlier.
As of Thursday, new app BarkHappy is live in the Austin area. Using their opposable thumbs, humans can create profiles for their furry friends (using their most flattering photo, naturally). The app will then find and suggest canines compatible with your own to message or add to your pack for potential meet-ups. Or for instant play dates, users can locate human-dog pairs already nearby.
BarkHappy, created by an Austin-based company, also hopes be a resource for finding dog friendly restaurants, stores, hotels, bars, and other locations around town.
The location-based meet-up and search app for dogs and their human companions is available for iOS now and will be ready for Android soon. So iPhone owners, how many more days will you deprive your dog of his or her own social meetup profile? You never know who may send you a wag!
