Dog-friendly app can help track pet

Woof, but he’s sure excited.

The 15-month-old greets passersby with lunging four-footed leaps as his “dog parent” David Elsonbaty, 20, tries to explain the app he’s helped developed.

Woof, branded as a “dog lover’s second best friend,” will launch in Apple’s App Store Friday. It combines a bunch of social networking features — photo sharing, location tracking and following other users — but it all has a decidedly canine twist.

For instance, users can track their walks for distance and time elapsed. They can mark their dog’s “territory” according to where Rover pees on the jaunt. When other users open the map and click on a dog’s territory, the app sends a notification that Rover has been “sniffed.”
