Today's Download: Tinder for Dogs

By

In a world where hookups of all kinds are at our fingertips—seriously, there are apps for baiting millionaires, infidels, and booty calls—Tindog, an app that promises to help you find a date for yourself and your furry best friend, is among the more refreshing launches we've heard of lately.


“Dogs bring so much joy and love that they really have the power to connect us, says Tindog founder and CEO Julien Muller. "That’s why we wanted to make it easy for dog lovers to meet new people around them who feel the same way.” 

Sort of like how studies show that women are more attracted to men with a bit of dad-like facial stubble, a recent survey published by Tindog's parent company, the petsitter search engine Holidog, shows that dog owners are generally perceived to be more loyal, compassionate, kind, and attractive people. (Think Tom Hanks' golden retriever–loving online persona vs. Tom Hanks' corporate asshole in You've Got Mail.)

GPS location services allow Tindog users to find nearby matches, which can be swiped and selected much as you would on Tinder. So whether you're looking for an animal-loving mate or just have separation anxiety when you leave Brinkley at home, based on the science, Tindog should have plenty of dateable bitches (sorry, we couldn't help it) from which to choose. (And you won't have to be mortified if your account gets leaked.)  //  Tindog, tindog.co
