Animal social network: ZooToo

So recently I signed up for ZooToo, a social network online for pets and their owners. I've been having a lot of fun with the site! I made a profile for myself and for each of my pets (Lewis, Ebony, and Zeke the fish).

The site is pretty cool. You can write reviews of pet products and people who offer services. I'm hoping to write some reviews for the cat food I've tried. I wrote a review about my vet, whom I love. (And are you looking for a good vet in your area? Might be a good place to check for one!) I also noticed that people can write reviews for trainers, pet-sitters, groomers, boarders, etc. I think this is all valuable stuff for pet owners.

As you write reviews and do other things (like invite people to join), you get points which raises your status and earns you benefits like free samples. It's a whole community of pet owners and lovers - so basically a Facebook for animals. I am excited to have a profile there, and I'd encourage other people who like social networking to check it out too! I wish I had discovered this back when I still had a dog because I feel like I could have found it valuable to meet other local dog owners and even beagle owners.

I haven't gotten a chance to explore every area, but I look forward to writing reviews, uploading pics, and swapping information with other pet lovers. If you're interested, let me know and I'll send you an invite! Or check out ZooToo yourself. I highly recommend it. :-)

We are a member of ZooToo and highly recommend it.

We have a product that you might be interested in called The SmartWalk Manager. It was created for a very niche group of people: Owners with one or more dogs, dog walkers, pet sitters, etc ...

The SmartWalk Manager - The Smart way to walk your dog(s).
New Breed Pet Product in the Travel/Storage/Leash Category !!

The SmartWalk Manager for responsible dog owners who:
* Love exercising with their pets
* Like the convenience of having items available to them while walking and/or traveling with their pets
* Having treats available as rewards at the time of the good behavior
* Would like the possibility of doing more than holding leashes while walking their dog(s)
