The SlimDoggy iPhone App Update

Share Button

sdapp_multi1For this week’s FitDog Friday post, we thought we would post a video segment about our iPhone App. Believe it or not, many of our readers aren’t aware that we created an app that helps dog owners keep their dog fit and slim.

The Slimdoggy app is like a combination of “Runkeeper” and “Weight Watchers” only for dogs. Use it to:

  • calculate how many calories your dog requires each day
  • determine a proper feeding amount in order to have your dog safely lose weight
  • look up calories and ingredients on over 2,000 dog foods and treats
  • estimate your dog’s calorie burn for many exercise activities


We have recently submitted an updated version to the Apple app store. The update contains lot’s of great improvements including a better activity tracking capability. Check out the video of how Slimdoggy Jack and Steve use the app to keep track of Jack’s daily calorie needs.


Use the app to track calories burned by your dog each day. And then use our dog food database to calculate the proper feeding amounts to help your dog attain or maintain a healthy weight. We used these exact methodologies to help SlimDoggy Jack go from 105 lbs. when we rescued him to under 80 lbs. today!

The app is available in a free, ad supported version and a premium no-ad version, for only $2.99. Go to the Apple store to download it now to help keep your dog fit and slim. If you have already downloaded the app, make sure to fetch the updates when they are available. We continue to make improvements in each new update.

  3. Videos are always a good idea, so many people notice things they actually see more then what they read!

  4. Thanks for the update, I have the app but honestly haven’t used it yet. I am going to update it today and get one it. I didn’t know it would tract distance. I am going to try that out this weekend when I take the dogs hunting.

    • Great! It will track your distance and time. But since your dog’s will be running off without you, it will not capture the full effect of the hunting.

      We will add another exercise to the list in a coming release called “Hunt” and you can then simply time it and it will provide an estimate of kcals used.

  5. Great info on the App! Of course we believe in it – We provide it to our customers with any purchase of our DogTread Treadmills and K9FITvest on our site!

  9. I have a request for the app! I never remember to log our walks on the PetsMove site, and it would be awesome if we could enter it on the phone and sync it with the site! I know, easy for me to say, but I still think it would be really cool!

    • Ah, genius! That would be great and I believe it is on the roadmap – if not I’ll make sure it is!

  11. Wish this app was available for other smart phone users. Seems like a neat app, similar to what I use for my workouts.

    • It is similar – we’re working on other phones and an online version.
