Pet parenting is no easy feat, but thankfully there are a number of helpful apps to guide owners along the way. From training schedules to puppy healthcare advice, we have rounded up the best dog apps to download today.
Some of them are free, while others may require a small fee (such as if you are speaking to a dog trainer, for example). It’s important to visit your local vet if you are worried about your pup, but these apps will help make life that little easier.
On that note, take a look at the full list below…
This clever dog training app, available for both Androids and iPhones, features easy video instructions, the opportunity to chat with expert trainers, and progress trackers so you can log how your dog is doing. Whether you need at-home help with teaching your dog to shake hands or want to speak to a vet about how to stop puppies from nipping, this is the app to consider.
One user said: “I never thought I could train my dog, let alone by an app. Yet this app explains everything in a completely personalised and easy to understand way.” Another added: “I have been to many training classes with my dogs and always wish I could bring the instructor home with me. This is like having them in my living room!”

One app user wrote: “Great sitter! Very responsive and very caring, looked after my cat very well and sent daily updates so I feel more assured whilst on trip! Highly recommend.”
Using positive methods and organisation, this clever app helps you train your puppy like the pros. Ideal for those with a busy schedule, you can easily track durations of events and set specific times when you want the training to begin. Plus, you can also sync the training with your Apple Watch.
“Quickly see when was the last time you took your dog out to go to the bathroom, the last time you fed them, the last time you gave them their meds, and whatever else you want to keep track of,” says the app. “Don’t wait too long to take your puppy out to the bathroom! Set up recurring reminders to never forget.”
This free and easy-to-use pet care app has been designed to make dog ownership less stressful. Designed by experts, it enables pet parents to track and monitor their pet’s health, wellness, puppy training and understand their behavioural trends. Brilliantly, too, the app will also track your pup’s eating habits, vet appointments, weight, medicine and regular photos you have taken of your pup.
