PupSocial platform has been created for all dog owners and their pups to unite, make new friends and relationships, and connect with people who share the same interest – a love for dogs. The app facilitates communication between dog parents in your area. Whether you have a question, need advice from another parent, or want to meet in real life and establish new meaningful relationships, this app is the perfect tool to do it all.
The cause we care deeply about
While we all have fun here, we are aware that some dogs are less fortunate than others. Having witnessed homeless and hungry dogs firsthand, we commit ourselves to help minimize this horrific problem in less well-off and less-regulated countries. We believe that every dog deserves to have a place to live, eat, and feel loved. This is why part of our profit will go to save a dog, one life at a time.
For more information, comments and feedback, please email us at
Where is it available? Where can I get it?
Right now we are developing an iPhone app that will be available in the Apple AppStore. Once we are confident in the apps progress and have taken onboard feedback, we will then consider other platforms such as Android and Windows Phone 8.
How much does it cost?
The app is free to users so they may fully enjoy all aspects of the app.
Do I have to buy additional features?
No. There are 5 invitation requests per day per user. Once you run out of them, you can wait 24 hours to get another 5 requests, or you can buy an additional 5 invitation requests for $2.99. This is the only paid feature that we have and we put it in place to deter people from misusing it, for example by sending bulk-invitations to many members and just seeing whoever replies first.
Is Facebook the only way to log in?
Yes. We use Facebook for security reasons to ensure your information is reliable and genuine, and to reduce the likelihood of fake user profiles. We will never post anything on your behalf without your consent.
Can anyone using the app track my location? Can someone see where I am at the moment?
PupSocial is a location-based app, where you have to input your location to search for dog owners and their dogs around you. Your location pin on the map is static and no one can track your movements. You can also choose to be invisible by selecting this option in the settings.
If I have a technical problem, what should I do?
