6 Dating Apps for Dog Lovers
Petful: If you’re on the verge of throwing in the towel when it comes to online dating, give it one more shot. This time, though, try an app created to help dog lovers connect.
Dig’s creators describe this service as “the dog person’s dating app.” It’s simple: Just create a profile featuring both you and your dog, then find potential matches in your area. Dig will give you dog-friendly locations for dates or meet-ups and even lets you narrow down your ideal match by their dog’s size to make sure they’re a good fit for your own pet.
It's New Orleans: Out to Lunch
Out to Lunch: If you’re single and you have a dog, you’ll know that you can never get serious about dating someone who doesn’t like your dog. Or worse, doesn’t like dogs in general. That self selection of single dog people is the premise behind a dating app called Dig.

Silicon Bayou News: Dig is a New Orleans-based mobile app for dog lovers and dog owners with some big news to share. The company recently completed The Idea Village accelerator program in New Orleans and has already been accepted into its next accelerator, MassChallenge Boston.
MassChallenge is a global network of zero-equity startup accelerators with locations in Israel, Mexico, Switzerland, the UK, and several locations across the United States including the flagship location in Boston.

New dating app for dog-lovers hits New Orleans
WDSU NEWS: Dig founders Casey and Leigh Isaacson built a dating app that connects dog people based on what’s most important to them. The Isaacsons said they created Dig after being duped by fake dog lovers too many times.
Make Sure Your Next Flame Is A Dog Person With Dig
Nibletz: Dig lets you tell your story and your dogs story so you’ll know off the bat if her boxer is going to get along with your Pomeranian or if your Dalmatian is going to get along with her Poodle. What about that ever important question about the bed, yup you’ll find that in the Dig app as well. Does she let the dogs in the bed? Does he let the dogs on the couch. From the getgo with Dig you and your future flame will know what to expect from the fur babies, and for most, that’s a deal breaker.
27 Tech Entrepreneurs and How They Grow Their Companies
Idea Mensch: We created Dig because being a dog lover isn’t just another box to check off on a long list of your attributes. It’s a way of life for a growing number of single people, and it’s crucial to know that up front when dating.
What strategy do you use to grow your business?
From the beginning, we’ve surrounded ourselves with advisors who have gone through start-ups and small business experience before. Without their advice and guidance, we would have been lost.
Dog people are always looking for ways to get dogs in their lives. You’ll linger near the dog park’s fence, you’ll repeatedly offer to dog-sit while your friends are away, and you’ll scan every dating app for photos of potential matches with dogs at their sides. If you’re lucky enough to own a pup, you know that things never work out with someone if they’re not as into your dog as you are. So Dig founders Casey and Leigh Isaacson built a dating app that connects dog people based on what’s most important to them.
