Shape up your pet and make dog walking fun with Dog Log. Track how far you’ve gone each day and compete with dog walking friends or family members to see who gets their pooch out the most.
The app was created by Caitlin, Beth, Rebekah and Jeri, students at Wick High School in Caithness, Scotland. As animal lovers and pet owners, they knew about the growing problem of overweight dogs and came up with the idea to create an app that would encourage young people to walk their dogs more often.
- Set the ideal daily walking distance for your dog
- Track how often you’ve walked your dog and how often you’ve reached its ideal walk distance
- Get more points by taking family and friends’ dogs out and about
- See your walks on a map
- Share with friends and family via Facebook
Dog Log was developed as part of the Apps for Good programme. The app won the “Learning and Information - helping others learn and using information for good” category sponsored by Thomson Reuters at the Apps for Good Awards 2013, the national app competition for young people across the UK. As an Apps for Good Award winner, the team worked with development agency Plant Pot to have their app prototype built professionally and publicly launched, with the support of Apps for Good and Thomson Reuters.
Apps for Good is an education movement where young people learn to create apps that change the world. Apps for Good partners with educators across the UK to deliver its course to young people 10-18 years of age.
