Right now, there are over 25,000 registered in Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel.  If trends continue the way that they have, this number could keep climbing.  So, what is a modern city to do when they see that more and more people are getting dogs?  The answer is simple.  You start a new, high-tech initiative to make your city more dog-friendly.

Apparently, the city has become a technology hot bed recently.  This gave the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality the idea to launch a full digital suite of both mobile and home-based apps and information on where they can find the best places to go with their pooches.  Thus, Digi-Dog was born.  With one dog for every 17 residents, it just seemed like a no-brainer.

Tel Aviv Global & Tourism chief executive Eytan Schwartz said, “Tel Aviv is an amazing city for dogs.  We have beaches for dogs, parks for dogs, we even hold film nights for dogs.  It is also an amazing city for start-ups.  We are combining both assets, a dog-friendly city and a technology-friendly city, to create a revolutionary service.”
