In recent years, our smartphones have become as much of our constant companions like our dogs, but did you know that there are some very useful apps available to make your life as a dog owner easier and more convenient? The following are our recommendations for five very useful apps available for Android and Apple phones, which we tested on both platforms. The apps are organized alphabetically, so this is not a- best of order.

1. BarkCam
Have you ever tried to get that perfect picture of your dog just to find that your dog would look at everything except the camera? This may be the solution. Barkcam is a simple app that reproduces various sounds in order to get the attention of your dogs and a perfect snapshot. Sounds include things like cat meow, dog howl, a siren, and if your dog has a human sense of humor, fart. Keep in mind that results may vary, depending on how your dog reacts to that sound.

2. Dog/Puppy Clicker Training
Sure, you could get a dog clicker for about a buck, but what do you do if you forgot your clicker when you go out to train with your dog? With this app, it's always on your phone. While the apps are very basic, it also includes a how-to guide on obedience and clicker training, as well as the dog whistle. None of the humans in the office could hear the latter, but the dogs certainly did.

3. Dog Walk
Have you ever wondered how far you've walked your dog? There is an app for that, and this is it Just press the Start button and it will map our route in real time and it will also tell you how long you have been walking. You can create entries for each of your dogs as well as take pictures in the app on a walk and mark the places where your dog has done his business. Note, however, that in both versions of the apps, we could not log in with Facebook and we had to create a separate account. In addition, the survey feature in the sidebar of the Android version crashed the application several times after the second question. Otherwise, although it is just what it says on the tin?

4. Pets First Aid American Red Cross
The Red Cross has been teaching human first aid for over a century and of course, they have apps that cover the subject, but they also have an app that collects first aid instructions for dogs and cats in one place. The information itself is divided into sections that include "{prepare," "Learn," and "Emergency," and includes a section for entering your pet's information. There is also a pet-friendly hotel search engine in the prep section, and the emergency department and includes a place to place your veterinarian's phone number, a hospital pet locator, a list of warning signs and quick access to the most common first aid emergency. Once you have gone through the learning section, you can also ask questions. All in all, this is an incredibly useful source for any dog owner.

5. Rover
If you are looking for a dog walker or sitter or a place to boards your dog's board, then this is the app for you. Think of the app like the Air BnB or Uber/ Lyft for canines with a network of professionals registered with the app, which also handles the payments. If you are a dog walker, sitter, or border, you can use this app to manage your clients and businesses. On the consumer side, available information includes distance, rates, and photos and a more detailed list of information, list of special skills, review, and services offered. Walkers can update their clients with photos, videos, and updates through the application, walkers can send their track and report card on the behavior of the dog. You can also arrange a 30-minute drop on a visit in case your dog needs a small business while out.
