(July 14, 2014) – Nowadays there seems to be an app for just about everything – including finding your dog a play date.

A new mobile app called Doggy BnB connects dog owners with other dog owners in their area.

The app’s creator says it helps users find trustworthy people to look after their pets when they’re gone or schedule a puppy play date.

“If you like someone and are interested in meeting them and they like you, we connect you. It allows you to set up play dates, build community, find new friends whatever you want,” said Adam Pokornicky, co-founder of Doggy BNB.

Pokornicky says he got the idea for Doggy BnB after he had to miss out on a weekend out with friends because he couldn’t find a dog sitter.
