Where My Dogs At: A social network for man and man's best friend

Where My At is a new networking app angled at dog lovers and their four-legged friends looking for local dog-friendly places to go and people to meet.

Think Facebook for Fido, with a “Yelp for dogs” approach, built around a location-based search and rating of dog-friendly businesses, restaurants, parks and apartments with detailed listings and user reviews.

Rather than “checking in,” users “mark their territory” at their favorite locations, interact with fellow dog lovers and let their friends know which places and businesses have earned their “paw of approval.”

This may sound like satire, but it isn’t. Animal lovers are a huge market, and many people like to share pictures of their pets — especially on social networks.

Kolker was inspired by his energetic cocker spaniel named Eddie and wanted to find new dog-friendly places to take him. After compiling a list of dog-approved places in Los Angeles, Kolker’s childhood (president and creative director) suggested that the two partner up and put that data into a social app. The two were graduate students at USC’s Annenberg Program of Online Communities.

Kolker and Wilson received $ 10,000 from the USC Annenberg Innovation Lab to build the Where My Dogs At app and later got $ 20,000 in seed funding from the start-up accelerator program StartEngine.
