Absolutely helpful and full of useful info.! First time a paw mommy of a wonderful beagle puppy.

Really useful app.

I first started using this app for our poodle Khola to keep track of her feeding schedule and vet info so that when we go away we can just email it to whoever instead of having to write it down everytime. I also figured out we could add our other dog Maggie (who isn't a puppy) in as well. Makes it a lot easier.

The text material is really good, and the emergency/first aid section is good thing to always have around. I haven't used the scrapbook or calendar tools, but it looks cool.

Application hangs in "Find It" mode

I find this application very helpful in training me Boxador puppy. However, it is a real shame that the application locks up when I click on "Find It" to locate vets, pet stores and dog parks. The "Find It" screen is displayed with the available options, but the find buttons do nothing. I cannot even return back to the main menu. I hope this gets fixed in the next release.
