TORRANCE, CALIFORNIA — September 27, 2011 — iLoveDogFriendly.com, a premiere web site for dog-friendly travel and information, has become mobile with the launch of Dog Friendly, an app for iPhone.
Now pet parents can access the most up-to-date information about the dog-friendliest establishments in town or on the go, powered by iLoveDogFriendly.com and its parent, iLoveDogs.com.
More and more pet parents are bringing their pooches along when they travel. However, the Automobile Association of America (AAA) reports that 38 percent of them say it’s difficult to find dog-friendly businesses. The Dog Friendly iPhone app quickly and easily solves that problem, putting more than 18,000 wet nose-welcoming hotels, restaurants, parks, beaches, boutiques, campgrounds and more right at pet parents’ fingertips.
“We’ve been amazed at the response the iLoveDogFriendly.com site has gotten from users,” says Martha Smith, general manager of i Love Dogs, Inc. “There’s definitely a need for a resource that helps pet parents locate dog-friendly travel accommodations and businesses for their excursions. The iPhone app will make it even easier for them to locate and share valuable information about dog-friendly establishments across North America.”
With the new Dog Friendly app—available now on iTunes—pet parents simply type a city, state or zip code to find the nearest dog-friendly businesses or to look for the latest doggie traveling tips. Plus, with seamless Google Maps integration and easy share features, Dog Friendly helps dog lovers quickly find and broadcast these pawsome places to their Facebook and Twitter social networks, and check in to dog-friendly locations on Foursquare directly from the app.
Pet retailers have much to gain from this new app, too. All retailers who carry the i Love Dogs line of natural vitamins and supplements for dogs get a complimentary premium feature on both the iPhone app and iLoveDogFriendly.com.
Luckily for pet parents, hundreds of businesses across the United States and Canada are adopting dog-friendly policies. The Dog Friendly app ensures that the days when the family pooch stayed behind while his “pack” enjoyed the big, beautiful world are long dog-gone.
