Daley Pooh ,

needs work

I love the idea of this app. This is exactly what I want, to meet dog people. But the interface is slow and also doesn’t have all of the places nearby. Maybe for now there should be a button to submit parks or businesses to be reviewed and help keep the app up to date! Otherwise it just needs promotion!!!

Not ready for prime time

Nice interface but the nearest play date was 250km away, and I live in a big city.
