As a nation, for some reason we gravitate towards starting a new diet on January 1st. It may have something to do with the roughly 6 weeks of the prior year being spent cramming every goodie we could lay our hands on into our mouths, but that is just a guess.
But what about your dog?
Does your dog have a one-track mind, with that track being food? Perhaps they need to lose a few pounds? Get a bit more exercise? Now there’s a fun and social iPhone app, PetMobi, that lets you track health and fitness stats for your dog. Sort of like a Weight Watchers tracker for dogs, minus the meetings and public weigh-ins.
The PetMobi application for iPhone lets you track your dog’s food intake (from a database of thousands of pet foods), exercise, weight and establish goals. It also lets you connect with friends to make it a little bit competitive, if you like that sort of thing or it helps motivate you. And I say “you” because let’s face it, the well-being of your dog pretty much relies on you. Dogs don’t pick out their own food (usually), and dogs don’t decide when they go for walks (usually). Your dog getting healthier depends on you making the right choices for him or her on a consistent basis.
Here are a few screen shots of the PetMobi app for iPhone in action. Go check out the PetMobi app in the Apple App store for more info. Did I mention the app is free?
Here’s to a happy and healthy 2013 for you and your pup!
