Some are FREE. And some are nearly free — only $.99 to $1.99), so they’re still very affordable.
The best part: they all really unique, so dog owners should find them interesting.
Following are my top picks for the best dog-related iPhone apps. Plus, you’ll also find the top picks from several other dog owners, as well!
Off Leash (FREE)
This is a very nice little iPhone app by Eukanuba that helps you locate off-leash dog parks. So, if you’ve been driving for a few hours, and your dog has been crated in the back of your car and really needs to get out and run, but you’re in an area that you are unfamiliar with… this app can locate the 5 closest off leash dog parks and give you turn-by-turn directions!
This one allows you to send updates to anyone caring for your dog. You can send them updates about what duties have to be done for your dog — like when to feed him, or walk him, or give him his medicine, for example.
Shake & Bark (FREE)
Want your iPhone to actually bark? Well this app from Pedigree makes that possible. All you have to do is take a picture of your dog with your iPhone, record his bark then enter your dog’s name. Then shake your phone and your phone will bark.
Dog Town Puppy Piano ($1.99)
I thought this app was really cool because it has assigned a dog bark to each musical note on a piano. So you can play all of your favorite songs on your iPhone to the tune of dog barks! If you ever thought it would be cool to play White Christmas in dog barking, well here’s your big chance!
iPet Dogs (FREE)
This new iPhone app is all about web 2.0 and social media. It allows you to connect with others who are using the iPet Dogs app all over the world. And you can adopt your own dog to feed, pet, and play with via the iPhone app. Likewise, others can feed, pet, and play with your dog via the iPhone app. Of course this is all done virtually, but it’s quite fun if you’re a dog lover!
The First Dog ($.99)
This iPhone app was initially created to benefit the Humane Society. Using this app, you can pet The First Dog, Bo on the White House lawn. You can also feed him, play Frisbee, and put him to bed. It’s a cute app.
The Daily Puppy ($.99)
I really like this app because it allows you to access articles about taking care of your dog. e-How.com’s dog editor uploads content about dog care from their website as well. I love eHow articles, so I thought this made the app more than worth it by itself.
As you can see, there are several really cool iPhone applications for dog lovers available. Of course, these are just a few, but they’re the ones that I thought were kind of different. One of the things I like best is that so many of the dog iPhone apps are FREE!

Some of my favorite things to write about are topics that have to do with living green, saving money, pregnancy, weddings, and dogs. When I’m not writing, I love to spend time with my husband, read, create 3D artwork and Native American beadwork.
