Ratings and Reviews
Great app for meeting new four-legged friends
This app delivers on the promise of putting you in contact with people who have pets around you. I’ve used it many times to organize walks with my Stella and neighbor dogs. The real power is critical mass in an area where the user can be alerted to new meet ups.
The addition of being able to check in at popular parks seems like a great way to easily identify others before approaching.
Excited to see it continue to evolve!
Good concept but needs work
This is a great concept. The app is laid out well and easy to use. However I have to give it three stars because it signs you out every time you close it (and it’s a pain to log back in every time). It also doesn’t give you notifications when someone sends you a chat message. So unless you check the app every day, you may not know you have a message.

Thanks NYYRule! (1) Notifications on incoming chats do take place. By default we send both a phone push notification and an email message to your registered email address when you receive a new chat. Note that the app asks for Notifications permission when it runs for the first time. If you are not receiving notifications then you might have responded with a “No” to that request causing Notifications Permissions to be off. Please check your app permissions settings and re-enable notifications from PettingClub.
(2) Log-off: We had this bug in version 4.0.0 , but it is fixed since version 4.5.0 ( released in March 2019 ). PettingClub will keep your session and not log you off for two weeks. An exception: If your session was authorized by a Facebook login and Facebook expired it, then you will also be logged off from PettingClub because we query Facebook for the session’s status.
Signed up - received the email for verification and the link does not work. Tried through the app to contact them about the issue and the send button doesn't work either. I would give 0 stars if I could. Disappointed.

Unfortunately, we had a problem that lasted few hours on Aug 24 and people that tried to sign up that night received a faulty link. We were notified of the outage in the morning and it was fixed within one hour. I saw your comment on FB and responded to you twice during that hour, first thanking you and acknowledging the problem and right when we fixed it.
We wish you and your furkids best of adventures.
