Find dog parks? There's an app for that

Does anyone's dog have an iPhone?

If so, you'll want to let them know that there's a new free application that will point dogs and their people to the dog parks closest to them at any given moment.

The technology comes from pet company Eukanuba. It's called Off Leash and available for download here.

The company says iPhone users simply tap into the "Locate Me" feature and within seconds the five nearest dog parks will populate the screen, complete with a map and driving directions. Of course in Baltimore, the nearest five will be spread pretty much into other cities....

In addition to finding dog parks for your pooch via the application, the company says people can access Eukanuba TV 24-hours a day and see doggish programming including "Planet Puppy," "Champions and Heroes."

OFF LEASH fans are also encouraged to share their favorite dog parks so that they are added to the evolving park database. Eukanuba will refresh the database with new dog parks every two-to-three weeks.
