What is it about?
BarkBuddy is an official app from BarkBox and it makes it super easy for the younger generation to adopt a dog nearby. You can browse through the profiles and pictures of available dogs for adoption in the area, and swipe to show if you're interested or not. As you go through the app more, the algorithm will learn the types of dogs you prefer and give you recommendations over time. Save favorites, get in contact with shelters and rescues, and be on your way to your next furry companion!
For those who...
- Like the Tinder-like style of browsing
- Are younger but looking to adopt, not shop
Not for those who...
- Prefer old-school methods of finding adoptable dogs
- Prefer breeders
Why we love it
