Our story

Founders Leigh and Casey Isaacson created Dig after being duped by fake dog lovers too many times. After a relationship ended when a guy refused to let the world’s cutest dog (Layla) in his apartment, Casey wanted to be sure she could find someone who would love her dog as much as she does. On Dig, guys can’t pretend to be dog owners by posting pictures with other people’s dogs just to get the conversation going like they do on other dating apps. Dig is a community of people who care deeply about dogs, whether they’re dog owners or want to get a dog with someone in the future. To dog people, it doesn’t matter who starts the conversation, what mutual hobbies they have, or who they know in common. If the people aren’t on the same page about the dog(s), they just aren’t compatible.

Leigh and Casey grew up with dogs that were kicked out of the dog park for ruff play. So, they know not all dogs get along, which is why some dog owners may want to find someone without a dog to join them on the cuddle couch or be able to search by dog size. They 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. The additional features on the app are available to help plan dog friendly dates, learn tips and tricks, and connect dog lovers with local dog friendly businesses.

Dig is a New Orleans based company. Dig - The Dog Person's Dating App launched in the New York Metro Area before Valentine’s Day 2018. We know there are a lot of dating apps out there, but there’s also more people trying dating apps every year. And, if you’re looking for someone who isn’t afraid of commitment, is empathetic, and is even likely to live longer, you should be dating a dog person. Find someone you really dig.
