Pet APPs to Help You

Manage Your Furrever Friend

By Sean-Patrick M. Hillman 

Just like in the human world, APPS for the care of our pets have become more and more important as each day goes by. Whether it is managing walking schedules for your dog, feeding schedules for multiple pets or training your pet, technology today helps make our lives so much easier.

Gone are the days when a couple needs to guess whether the other person in their relationship has run Fido out for a pee. So are the days of guessing whether or not your cat was given its medication for the day.

Good Pup
The key to a happy life with your dog? Training. Behavior is one of the top reasons dogs are sent to shelters, according to the The Humane Society of the United States. Good Pup’s mission is to help every dog and dog parent live their best lives together – so they created training that is effective, affordable, and rewarding. GoodPup training is 1–1, at-home, on your schedule, with trainers ready to help 24/7. Plus, a week of private training with GoodPup costs the same as a single group class at most pet stores.

Their story starts with three cat parents looking for a go-to resource to learn how to better take care and train their cats. Lumsters wanted to create a space where cat lovers can come together and also change the stigma of cats (because how can anyone not love cats and their eccentricities?!)

Lumsters provides access to over 15+ lessons from the basics of clicker training to getting your cat into a carrier and more! See how your cat progresses with in-app trackers and level up as your cat learns more skills. Everything you need to know about cat care. Just adopted a cat? Help them assimilate into your home. Figuring out what type of toys they like? Lumsters can help..
