A new dating app for dog lovers helps singles find romance. If you love dogs and haven’t had too much luck finding a soulmate who feels exactly the same way, log onto Dig – The Dog Person’s Dating App – and find your match made in heaven. The app allows users to upload photos of themselves and their dog, include a brief bio and view photos of potential matches’ profiles.
A new, innovative dating app that promises to connect pet lovers with potential soul mates is helping singles meet and get to know one another. Founders Leigh and Casey Isaacson created Dig after being duped by fake dog lovers too many times.
“When you’re dating and you’re a dog owner, it doesn’t matter who reaches out first or how many friends you have in common. If you don’t get along with my dog, it’s never going to work,” explains Leigh, co-founder and CEO of Dig.
When her date refused to let her dog Layla in his apartment, Casey decided to get creative about finding true love. The sisters launched Dig in the New York Metro Area before Valentine’s Day 2018.
“If you don’t have a dog but you know you’ll want one in the future, you need to know you’re dating a dog person from the start,” said Leigh.
Dog lovers ‘Dig’ pet friendly dating app
The app itself allows for a number of options when making decisions on both human and dog compatibility. When users log into Dig, they can decide if they want to find someone currently with or without a dog. The app even filters by dog size, so if your BFF (Best Furry Friend) is an 80-pound slobbering, high-energy boxer, you can find them an equally playful companion.
Then, every day, Dig presents five of the best potential dates. Users can tap through the five profiles before deciding whom to “dig,” “really dig,” or “pass” on that day. Once two people “dig” each other, Dig helps you find a date idea.
A “dog-friendly locations near you” search feature is built into the messaging area. The app also features daily “tips and tricks of the day” from experts such as vets and trainers as well as “daily deals” from pet companies.
“We created Dig because being a dog lover isn’t just another box to check off on a long list of your attributes,” said Casey. “It’s a way of life for a growing number of single people, and it’s crucial to know that up front when dating.”
According to Leigh Isaacson, the single world is filled with dog-crazed, love-seeking people! An estimated 55 percent of single adults in the U.S. are pet owners, with dogs leading the pack. Surveys show people are making their pets a priority on their dating profiles and 70 percent of pet owners think their date’s reaction to their pet is important.
