If you enjoy technology, there’s a good chance you have a variety of apps on your computer, phone, or tablet.
And, if you love dogs, it’s likely that a handful of those apps have to do with dog care.
I myself even have a few dog-related apps I use from time to time that are related to canine care and services. Not to mention, I have my own app, The Online Dog Trainer, that you may already be familiar with or have installed on your device.
So…with all these other apps readily available, you may be wondering why I’m promoting yet another dog-based app called ScritchSpot.
The reason is twofold…
Without further ado, let explain why I believe all dog owners should download the ScritchSpot app to use as a tool to provide the best care and training for their dogs.
Why I Proudly Endorse the ScritchSpot App
As a dog lover and dog trainer, I think it’s vital that all dog parents have access to the resources and tools they need to ensure the safety and well-being of their pups.
Thankfully, there are a lot of free resources available to dog lovers online.
The bad news: not all of the resources are created equal!
- Are easy to use.
- Provide kind and gentle training advice.
- Are backed by quality dog trainers and organisations.
- Share useful information.
- Can be customized based on your unique needs.
For that reason, it can be really difficult to decipher which apps you should be using or, more importantly, what information you can trust.
When ScritchSpot first reached out to me about becoming their new professional dog trainer spokesperson (we’ll dive into this in a minute), I had to do my homework to uncover what this app was all about.
Upon reviewing the app, I was amazed at not only the functionality, but also the philosophy behind the app.
I was thrilled to learn that the company reached out to me because they believe in my kind, gentle training methods and want to share them with dog lovers around the world.
So, there you have it. The app provides the best of both worlds…kind training advice and valuable tools for finding pet products, pet care, and more (more on this in a bit).
I Am Honored to Endorse ScritchSpot
Before we move on to all the amazing benefits of ScritchSpot, I wanted to take a moment to express how honored I am to support such an app.
Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I’m not the type of person to slap my face on a product for the sake of a buck.
I truly care about the resources my followers use and, therefore, make it a priority to ensure anything I recommend to my clients or those of you online is of the highest value and quality.
As mentioned above, I sincerely believe ScritchSpot is a valuable app, which makes it incredibly humbling that I would be selected as their dog trainer of choice to endorse such a wonderful tool.
I am honored that I will be able to continue to help spread quality information on safe, gentle, and effective dog training methods with people across the globe.
Now that that’s been said, let’s move on to the exciting part…how ScritchSpot will benefit you and your dog!

In the picture above, you’ll see the 8 awesome features that the ScritchSpot app provides.

This map provides the location of pet friendly parks, restaurants, stores, hotels, and more in your local area. No more second-guessing whether you can bring your dog along on vacation or out to the store. Simply check the pet map.
Feature #2 – Adopt the Perfect Pet
I am a huge supporter of dog rescue and adoption, so I’m thrilled that this app promotes adoption as well. You can use this nifty tool to take a quiz to see what type of dog is the right choice for your home.
Feature #3 – Pet Parent Community
There’s nothing better than building a network of fellow dog lovers. Connect with other dog owners in your area and share images and messages in the pet parent community.
Feature #4 – Save & Share Pet Records
Tired of keeping folders full of old records for your pup? Use this feature to safely store any paperwork regarding your pup—from vet records to boarding stays. If someone needs your dog’s records, share them quickly and easily with the press of a button.
Feature #5 – Find a Pet Sitter or Walker
If you travel and/or work outside of your home, it’s likely that you need help caring for your pet while you’re away. The pet sitter/walker features allow you to browse local dog caregivers in your area so you can find quality care near your home.
*Please note that this feature is only available to those who live in the United States and Canada.*
Feature #6 – Pet Product Reviews
Is your dog food safe? Are any treats being recalled? Or, how tough is that chew toy you want to purchase for your pup? Find out using the pet product reviews feature on the ScritchSpot app.
Feature #7 – New Pet Guide
Bringing a new dog into your home might feel a little overwhelming at first. For tips and tricks on how to help your new pup make a smooth transition, check out the new pet guide.
Feature #8 – Dog Training
This final feature is my absolute favorite because it’s where I’ll be sharing information regarding my dog training methods via blog posts, podcasts, YouTube videos, and more!
Use these resources, and I have no doubt that you’ll be able to build a solid training foundation for your pup that combats common dog behavioral issues such as…
- Leash pulling.
- Separation anxiety.
- Puppy training.
- And more!
ScritchSpot for Cat Lovers
I’m a dog person through and through. But, it’s important to mention that the app hosts content for cat owners as well.
If you have both cats and dogs, then you’ll be pleased to hear that you can get all the info you need for all your animals on the ScritchSpot app.
Simply let the app know whether you have cats or both cats and dogs, and it will provide you with the features and information you need.

It’s amazing to know that, through this app, dog parents will be empowered to understand and implement a kind, gentle training method that truly produces results.
