Our story began with our co-founder, Aliya, and her dog Russell. If you're anything like her, then you understand the torturous daily routine of saying goodbye to your dog before leaving for work, then being faced with leaving them behind yet again when going for dinner, shopping with friends or running errands. Closing the door behind your best friend and seeing those puppy dog eyes is not only painfully hard, but it can lead to dogs developing anxiety, depression. and/or destructive behaviour. She knew there had to be a solution, and PawSwap was born.

PawSwap makes planning days out with your pups easier than ever by finding events, activities and businesses that welcome our four-legged friends. Whether they’re allowed inside, on the patio or free to explore off-leash, we’ll let you know - and we’ll reward you with Points for bringing your pup along to dog-friendly places!

You shouldn't have to leave your pup behind - and now with PawSwap, you won't have to.


- Never leave your dog home alone again
- Support local businesses that support your best friends, and loves them just as much as you do
- Collect Points at each dog-friendly business you visit, save them up and swap them for rewards for you and your furry best friend.

PAWsome App for pet owners

Love this APP! Got my puppy during covid and it was a struggle to know where we can go! This APP made our life so easy! Super simple to navigate and user friendly. Has wonderful notification to events and get to collect rewards points (bonus!) Noodle and I will be getting the premium version for sure!

Great app!!

I just started using this app. When I heard about the hikes and trails challenge I downloaded and got premium to participate. I haven’t used the app yet for any stores or cafes, only hikes and trails. I’m someone who gets out a lot with my dog and love finding new area to explore. Using the app is really simple and user friendly, and I’ve been able to find 5 new trails I haven’t been before with my dog which is really exciting! I have been having a hard time checking into these places, but the team has been so wonderful helping me along the way! After reaching out to their Instagram page, their team actually emailed me first to see how they could help! Awesome!!!! I Definitely recommend!
