BarkBuddy comes from bark & Co., and works across the U.S. and Canada. It sources its dog photo through a service aggregator called PetFinder which provides all the data about adoptable pets from shelters and other similar organizations as well as from Bark & Co.’s own network of around 2,500 shelters.
Talking as of today, the listing of dogs on the dog-finding platform is a whopping 3,00,000.
The Tinder similarity to it is, the interface is very easy to grasp – swipe the photos on the screen either left or right, or just tap the ‘cross’ or ‘heart’ button for the same effect for choosing the favorite dogs from those located in the nearby shelters.
The app is designed in a way that it picks up the dog preference based on what the dog users swipe right on and specializes what dogs get shown.
