The application to link and make friends Tinder has been the germ for many apps with the same dynamics related to the world of dating. The last one is Tindog, a tool that helps users find their best friends and facilitate a connection, friendship or even a relationship with other dog owners.
The app, available for iOS and Android, has been developed by the British startup Holidog and, through GPS, gives the possibility to meet other dogs that live in our neighborhood or are nearby, in order that our colleague Four-legged socialize.
Tindog has a chat for owners to communicate, share photos and let them know when they will go down to the park to take their respective pets for a walk.
“Dogs bring so much joy and love that they really have the power to connect us,” says Julien Muller, founder and CEO of Holidog. “That’s why we wanted to make it easier for dog lovers to find new people around who felt the same way.”
If you own a dog, you may be interested in other apps of the same style that we previously discovered in Applicants. Cute or Not is Buzzfeed’s app to value pets, Zoa allows you to search for your pooch or cat a companion of the same breed to have pups and PetMatch, created to locate animals that serve to appease the duel for having asked for a previous pet.
Tindog is also a great way to help socialize your pet. Dogs are pack animals so it’s equally as important to help them meet other dogs in the area. By matching with neighborhood dogs, Fido will never have to walk or play in the park alone again.

Created by the team at Holidog – a 500 Startups company – Tindog aims to help make it easier for people to break the ice once they match. “Most dating apps focus solely on appearances, which often leads nowhere,” said Dave McClure, CEO of 500 Startups. “Matching with someone that already shares your love for dogs only increases the chance for a real connection – plus everyone knows that dogs make the best wingmen.”
