Pawmates is an app that is like Tinder for dogs.

It was created by Colin Jarvis-Gaum so he could find appropriate playmates for his aging Golden Retriever.

“As my dog got older he had less interested playing with other dogs, but I still wanted him to get exercise. I would take him to the park every day between seven and eight,” Jarvis-Gaum said.

“I realized how many people came to the park and wondered whether if perfect playmate was coming to the park between six and seven and I would never know if there was another senior dog, so I started the app.”

There are roughly 10,000 users of the app mostly in major Canadian cities.

A person using the app can swipe on another person in their area and start a conversation.

The app is free and has a businesses directory so people can find local vets, groomers, walkers and pet stores.

It will also be expanded to add pet adoption services and a lost pet alert.

Goldie Weiss uses the app and loves it.

“If you are looking for dog friends it is a great was to find them in your area,” she said.
