Emergencies are something that we never expect but we should always prepare for. If babies are prone to bumps, scars, and simple emergencies, your fur babies are too. And you must always be ready whenever it happens. Whether it is a simple allergy, or torn nail, this app will make sure to help you out especially that your pets cannot tell you what they feel.
Good thing, Red Cross, also makes sure to take care of animals and pets with their Pet First Aid app. This app provides clear information about various things like how to check your dog’s vital signs, knowing what is normal and what is something you must worry about. Also, it includes ways on how to treat wounds, and when to seek help from your veterinarian.
This app also gives you links to educational videos like CPR, that will definitely be useful in checking your pet’s health.
All fur parents are excited to teach their fur babies a trick or two. And it is not a simple task especially if you don’t have experience doing it. And these apps will be your aid in that.
Puppr can be used to provide training to your pets through the use of in-app clickers. Of course, there will be an introduction as to how to use it for dogs and their owners. Clicker training uses a sound cue to reinforce your dog’s good behavior, or in the case of trick-training, it is used when they complete a task.
Once you’ve established your training with your pet, consistency is now the key to success. And this 2nd app is what you need for that. GoodPup helps you be guided on your dog’s first 12 months. First, the app needs to acquire information about your dog’s age and how long you’ve been together.
From there, it provides you a clear outline of the specific skills you have to accomplish with your pet. It may include potty training, commands such as lay down, roll over and others. There is also available weekly video consultation with a live trainer to assist you in actions to make.
Puppr comes free of charge with the basics, however, if you are interested to learn much advanced tricks. You can pay for as little as $1.99 to $99.99 per year. On the other hand, you can use GoodPup for free for the first week, and it will cost you $29 in the succeeding week.
The third app is a way for you to locate lodgings, restaurants, parks and other spots that are available for you and your pets. It has its own ratings, the more bones the better the review. Of course, certain establishments may not be open due to pandemic restrictions and the app is not accurately up-to-date, however, you can still use this to discover new places to try. Besides, this app is free of use.
You might not think you need it, but you do. This app will allow you to identify the dog’s breed just by its appearance. This is not that accurate though as a dog’s appearance doesn’t always show its breed. However, it is still quite addictive.
The basic features are free, but for a premium of $2.99 a month, or $13.99 for a lifetime, you get to skip the ads and will have promised access to new features when they are added.
These apps will definitely help you take care of your fur babies more while having fun. Enjoy!
