Dog Log will shape up your pet and make dog walking fun. Track how far you’ve gone each day and compete with dog walking friends or family members to see who gets their pooch out the most.

We talked to the team:

Dog Log was created by Caitlin, Beth, Rebekah and Jeri, students at Wick High School in Caithness, Scotland. As animal lovers and pet owners, they read about the growing problem of overweight dogs. They decided to develop an app with a competitive element to help encourage young people to walk their dogs more often.

The app was developed as part of the Apps for Good programme and won the “Learning and Information - helping others learn and using information for good” category sponsored by Thomson Reuters at the Apps for Good Awards 2013. As an Apps for Good Award winner, the team worked with development agency Plant Pot to have their app prototype built professionally and publicly launched, with the support of Apps for Good and Thomson Reuters.
