10 apps every pet owner should have

If you are a pet owner, you know that taking care of them means a lot. There’s education, health care, toys and gear, not to mention that they want to give them the world because they deserve it.

Luckily, there are a number of apps to help us in this mission. From useful training tips to vital emergency supplies to making sure our pets are entertained and happy, we’ve rounded up our favorites to ensure your pets live their best life.

Pet training apps

1. Good puppy

When you sign up, GoodPup creates a personalized workout plan that includes weekly private 30-minute sessions with a trainer, guided daily workout tips, and 24/7 chat capability with trainers. This is for dog owners who want to commit to a full-service training plan, as it comes with a cost — $29 per month. GoodPup offers a one-week free trial so you can try it first.

Price: $29/month, 7-day free trial

Available for iOS and Android

7. Airvet

There are several veterinary telemedicine platforms out there, but we like this Airvet for the variety of options it offers.

With a one-time purchase, you can download Pet Monitor VIGI to all your devices, so all you have to do is set it up on your existing computer/tablet when you go. It also has two-way audio and video so you can interact with your pet while you’re away.
