Great companion to the Fido Factor website! (by Ketu Patel)
Perfect app to help you find out where to go w/ your pup. The fidofactor.com site is awesome too and this lets you access all that goodness on the go!
U rate, they donate! (by Ozzco mero)
I just saw that they make a donation to ASPCA every time u review a place. That is a good indication of what this company is all about. I strive to find places that care about the community I live in (local & national). I appreciate the smoothness of the application and the features it has. Pooch pics is absolutely marvelous and all the relevant information is there. More and more locations are popping up here in NYC to the point where I find this app indespenable. A big thanks to the crew at Fido Factor for bringing us such a great app! My dog loves u for it.
Woof woof! I’m outta here.

LOVE IT!!!!!! (by Izzy5275)
I love this app it helps me memorize dog breeds a lot better since I am a MAJOR DOG LOVER. Although I think 3.99 is a little to pricey but it’s still great. Plus it helps when my friend is fostering pups and we have no clue what they are sometimes this app helps what they might be. Its my favorite app on my iPod

Parks but not groomers (by jfkaess)
I can use the app to find local dog parks, but the rest of the features are not working. When I try and find a groomer in Jacksonville FL it displays places as if in Jacksonville that actually are located in Alaska and Illinois.
Great app (by adwhitesr)
I think you guys did a great job with this app..I definitely recommend it for all pet owners! Does need a little work! Could improve user interface and update parks and vets! Other than that GREAT JOB!!
