Project Brief

Dogalize allows dog owners from all over the world to communicate with each other, post photos/videos of their pets, and allows vacationers to find the best parks for dogs while on vacation.

Utilizing geolocation, dog owners will find many benefits to the Dogalize app, to include the capability of communicating with friends, meeting other dog owners, making calls/videocalls, and locating dog-friendly places such as parks, kennels, restaurants, and pet shops.
In addition, people can also use the Dogalize app to make a call or video call to a local veterinarian, in the case that their pets have suddenly become sick or unhealthy and urgent advice is needed. With the capability of mobile telemedicine, Dogalize seeks to establish itself as a tool for a first diagnosis for pet health problems. If a pet’s health problem is too complex to treat via mobile device/computer, veterinarians will be able to recommend local specialists.

Project Need

Dogalize, the First Ever Veterinary Telemedicine and Social Network App

Dogalize is not an ordinary run-of-the-mill social network. The application is also the first to feature veterinary telemedicine. If your dog is in need of an immediate veterinarian consultation, Dogalize will connect you with an available vet via video call. This communication feature is also available for friends on your social network, meaning you can show off your dog's talents in real time.

"Video call, the free vet call, and the social network is exactly why Dogalize needs to be a part of every dog-owners' daily life," said Sara Colnago, CEO at Business Competence. "Dogs are a part of the family, and we want people to have a community that will appreciate their dog as well as support them."
