The perfect way to learn about your dog and meet other dogs!

I really like this app! It can take lots of battery but if you plug it in it is fine, and if you have a later version of iPhone or a better battery it will probably be easy on your battery life. So here is what happened;
So I made an account. Then I scanned my dogs! They opened me up to some new possibilities, because I don’t know what breeds my dogs are. It helped! Then I opened up the feed. It was FULL of sweet puppies! I immediately got addicted to this app. Now I have posted like five times today. The feed is a great place to share dog pictures! So far the app seems safe, because nothing bad happened! They have good posting rules too. So in all, it’s very fun and I think it’s a great way to share your love of dogs and learn more about your little loaf.

well it was a ton better back in august. this app is kinda trash now. listen, the scanning feature isn't that bad, but i'm pretty sure it just goes off of color and points because it's not very accurate, it's said my dog is anything but the breeds he is. but now onto the real problem: the social feature. you have the idiots who just wanna cause drama, you have the dog theifs, and you have the occasional zoophile. yes those have all happened. people complain about anything you do, and then your the one who gets hated even tho you've done nothing wrong. but the biggest problem of them all is that they're banning random people. for NO REASON. email them? you get a snippy response, because that's 'so professional'. there are people who are getting banned for doing nothing, for example; moondog. she's one of the sweetest people on the app and she's been banned i believe twice? it's so annoying. they take 5 minutes to ban an innocent person, but you have a person telling people to k!ll themselves and threatening them, and it takes them days to ban them. not to mention that the app takes forever to load and there's a ton of errors. honestly if your looking to download this don't even bother, it's awful. if you want a sweet community get amino and get dogs amino. and if you want a scanner, just get a different one.

Pros and Cons

If you like dogs (like me) then this app looks great, but… it’s overrated. This app has great history and information about every registered breed, which is cool. The scanner is complicated. I put in a bunch of pics of my dog (A Purebred Cavalier KC Spaniel 🐶) and every time it said it was about 30% Cavalier with a bunch of other random breeds. When I scanned my friend’s dog, a boxer, at least it got him 80% right. The social feature is… a mess. Sure there’s always a couple people who just like posting pics of their dogs, but like three fourths of the people on there are just trying to cause drama. Like legit I was on for 10 minutes scrolling through and everyone is just posting a dog pic so they can then curse out random people out in their comments. If you want drama, get Snap, not Dog Scanner! 😂

Anyways the breed info feature gets 5 stars, so the apps not horrible. I know the app developers aren’t the ones causing drama, but they can still ban people and so far I haven’t seen that (had the app for bout a week).
