App enables people to create a dog/s profile and locate other dogs.
Dog name, breed, pictures, docility rating and play fightability (lots of dogs like to play fight, owners like this also). The dog has a persona. No need for owners details.
The owner can alter status of dog to active/away ( or label a particular location), but most importantly can enable GPS location
so users can see the location of other persons and their dogs. This dog persona and tracking is the key service of the app. Dog
lovers can thereby through the app find new dog locations for leasure, and go to locations they already depending upon its busyness
(some owners may want no other dogs around and at other times lots of other dogs around depending on the needs of their own dog). Thus
the crux idea is that dog owners log on when they go out with their dog and so dog owners can see the activity of other dogs and the
types of dogs around. Relies on networking. Want to avoid private profiles of persons so they people can keep private sociliazation seperate
(such as fb) from casual socialization with dogs.
Public group chat; must be segmented based on locations (how that is done i do not know).
Premium account; enables private messenging between persons. Only those with premium accounts can respond. Those who wish to do more and
organise private meetups etc can do so. Premium members can rate dog breeds but not particular dogs. Owners place their dogs in breed categories,
or list them as their own breed (e.g pitbull/mastiff mix). Premium members can uptick other dogs but not down vote.
A dog fight match maker (play fighting of course) could be appropriate.
A few other fun social components could be included.
