Are you familiar with the website DogParkUSA? They have compiled a list of over 2,000 dog parks so you can find a place for your dog to play no matter where you may travel. Now, they have launched a new iPhone app so you can get the same info on your mobile device.
According to their press release:
DogParkUSA.com and the Dog Park Finder iPhone App have teamed up to index and map all the dog parks in the U.S. and, most importantly, make them accessible to you online and via your mobile device. Dog Park Finder has leveraged the information that DogParkUSA.com has compiled and vetted since it began in 2007. Together DogParkUSA.com and Dog Park Finder bring users detailed, accurate information on over 2,000 dog parks and over 3,000 reviews and pictures of individual dog parks across the country.
The Dog Park Finder application features hand placed map markers that give the exact locations of each dog park; finds local dog parks nearby your current location; lets you read user ratings, reviews, and comments on the dog parks you find; allows you to search dog parks by city, state, and zip code; and provides detailed information about each park, including park fees, hours of operation, fencing information, doggy amenities (such as swimming areas), and other important notes about the park.
Once you’ve used Dog Park Finder to locate and visit all the dog parks in your area, you can rave about your favorite dog parks on DogParkUSA.com. Rate your local dog parks, write a glowing review or critiques, upload pictures, and email the dog park information to a friend. These features are also available, or will be soon, on Dog Park Finder.
On the Road with your Dog
Don’t limit yourself to dog parks in your neighborhood. Use DogParkUSA.com to find dog-friendly hotels around the country and take a vacation with your dog! Keep in mind that “dog-friendly” doesn’t mean “off-leash”. Your pooch

the most common pet to take on a vacation, bringing Dog Park Finder on the road is a great option. Instead of pulling in at a truck stop on your road trip, use Dog Park Finder to get directions to the closest dog park and let your dog stretch her legs too.
Whether you’re on a road trip across the country, a weekend drive, or a stroll through your neighborhood, your dog needs to run off-leash. Let Dog Park Finder and DogParkUSA.com help you find the best dog park near you.wherever you are!
