FidoFactor – Find Dog-Friendly Locations

mAny dog-owner knows how hard it can be to find places to go and places to stay that allow dogs. Even using public transport with a dog can be a problem, so it’s best to be able to check where dogs are welcome before planning an outing or holiday. FidoFactor is a new website with just a few locations covered so far, but it’s such a useful idea that I hope to see it grow. Currently covering San Francisco, Boston, New York City and Portland, it shows the locations where dogs are welcome, together with reviews provided by members.

When members add reviews or locations the FidoFactor team makes a donation to the San Francisco SPCA to look after dogs. These donations are funded by FidoFactor and the exact amounts are clearly listed with $1 donated for an added location and $.0.50 for a first review, then $0.25 for subsequent reviews. This should all help the website to grow as well as helping needy dogs.

Along with information on taking your dogs out and about, FidoFactor has a community spirit with Pooch Pics dotted about the map for members to click on for a good view of each other’s pets. There’s also a forum for doggy discussions and articles with information on looking after your pets and other useful pet tips. I would love to have this kind of site to help me plan trips and times out with my dog so hopefully it will catch on or be imitated internationally.
