We are developing a mobile application to allow people with dogs to find like-minded dog owners and set up play dates for their pets. The aim is for the app to function in a similar way to a dating website, utilising key word searches to find suitable playmates based on parameters such as breed, age, temperament and location.
App users would set up profiles for their dogs by filling in the basic key word parameters, adding a more detailed description if desired and uploading a photo. They could then search dogs with their desired playmate characteristics which would bring up summaries of matching dogs (the dog's photo, breed and key words). Clicking on individual dogs would bring up their complete profile. Dog owners can then private message one another to arrange for play dates.
