Our social, business, and banking information is kept neatly in our hand held device that is by our side almost 24/7. I often think that my phone is not really a phone at all, just a tiny computer with a telephone app that allows me to call out. Like most people I use my phone more for the apps than the phone itself sometimes. We use our apps for all sorts of reasons; most people have ones for social media, business, or games, but there are a whole lot of other apps out there. There are apps for counting steps and calories, or tracking stars, pretty much anything you can think of has as app that you can download. So, why not use one for your pets? There are actually a handful of pet friendly apps out there that can help you track and train your pet.
