Back in April I wrote about a free iPhone app called Off Leash that used your current location to show you the five nearest off-leash dog parks. It had flaws, but its authors planned to add more off-leash dog parks in Version 2.0. Instead, they sold it to Eukanuba, which has gussied it up and plans to update it more frequently. A blogger who works in consumer relations for P&G Pet Care has posted a useful summary of the improvements Eukanuba’s made to the app, and of the things she’d still like to see changed.
The app’s list of dog parks still isn’t comprehensive, and you still only get a list — no descriptions or reviews of the parks are provided. However, it’s still free, and with funding from Eukanuba behind it (and your support! send in the names of dog parks you know about and it doesn’t!) it has a good chance of becoming an even more useful resource than it already is. Download it from the iTunes App Store (here’s the direct link).
