Would you know what to do if your dog experienced a medical emergency? Brush up on your first aid knowledge with this Android app, which features videos and step-by-step illustration guides. CPR and bandaging are two of the topics covered. There is no search function though so it is not a brilliant option if you are looking for detail on a specific ailment or symptom.

Looking for an app to keep track of your dog’s daily walks? This Android app will track distance covered per day compared to your ideal walking distance and even allows you the option to compete with your friends and family for top dog walker. It is currently free to download via Google Play.
