ODoggy App for iPhone and Android

Attention all pet owners!

Have you ever had to take your beloved dog to the kennel because you are going on vacation or a business trip only to discover you are missing your dog and wonder how your pooch is doing while at the kennel? Problem solved as you can now watch your dog from your phone. Welcome the ODoggy app:)

ODoggy App for iPhone and Android

The ODoggy app allows you to view live streaming video of your dog using your iPhone or Android, thus releaving you of any worries of guilt you may have while sitting on a tropical beach somewhere!

Online Doggy is the leader when it comes to kennel-cam systems. Blake Walliser founded Online Doggy and the streaming video services can be found in almost every state in over 450 pet-care providers. Naturally with the majority of pet owners having access to a smartphone, it only made sense to develop the ODoggy app.

The ODoggy app that is currently available is the first release for both the iPhone and Android and Blake Walliser plans on continual updates to enhance the pet owner’s experience.


The ODoggy app is free to download. The app has a 4+ rating in iTunes and a 4.1 stars on the Android market.

So the next time you have to leave your beloved dog at a kennel, remember the ODoggy app because you could be only a screen tap away from your dog.

Of course, I always go away on holidays with my family!

Movies featuring Dogs

Check out the best dog movie of the year - Red Dog movie trailer!


Inspired by the true story of a stray kelpie in the 1970's who became an adored member of the small mining town of Dampier in Western Australia, where a bronze statue exists in his honor.

Wow maybe one day they will make a movie about my life too. I wonder what they will call it!

Out with friends in my new dog powered scooter. Fun for the whole family. Mum thought since I had so much energy this might be a good idea.

New Dog Park in Smithfield

We went to the opening of the new Smithfield Rainy Mountain Dog Park where we ran free with all the other dogs.

It's a fully fenced park and the second to be built this year. Yah! The other one is closer to home, Henley Hill dog park in Earlville but we went anyway. I entered the best dressed dog competition and had a great time with my mates and didn't we look silly! Mum took a few photos, just one below
