Dog Moms in Dallas Need these 21 Dog Apps | Ep. #034
There’s an app for that! No really, as a Dog Mom in Dallas, there’s never a dull moment when it comes to our dogs, Dutch & Bowden. I love apps and its truly like having my own personal assistant in my pocket! Who wouldn’t want that? We are always on the go exploring DFW and hanging out at places like Mutt’s Cantina, maybe escaping the rain for some avocado toast inside the enclosed patio at Toasted, or grabbing a beer at Grrrowler’s in The Colony. And once we have the “kids” loaded in the Subaru, we’ve got to be prepared for anything. That means our REI car cover, dog bowl, water, leashes and the apps. I compiled this list of apps for Dog Moms in Dallas. More here https://wearedallasfortworth.com/featured/apps-dallas-dog-moms/
