eukanuba-iphoneFinally, a good reason to get an iPhone.

Eukanuba is offering an iPhone application that gives dog owners the location of the nearest dog parks. By simply tapping the “Locate Me” feature, users can get information about the five nearest dog parks — complete with map and driving directions.

The application will work on all iPhone and iPod Touch models, according to a company press release.

The Eukanuba OFF LEASH iPhone application can be downloaded for free at www.Eukanuba.com.  Users are encouraged to share their favorite dog parks so that they can be added to the evolving park database. 

Users of the application can also access Eukanuba TV 24-hours a day and see original dog-related content, including “Planet Puppy,” “Champions and Heroes,” “Eukanuba Legacy” and more.

Hi! I work for Eukanuba–Thanks for noticing “Off Leash!” We’re pretty excited about it—I’ve posted my review of the new app on my blog at http://my-fire-hydrant.blogspot.com/2009/06/eukanuba-off-leash-on-my-iphone.html

Another good reason to get an iPhone: the price is down from $199 to $99!

Well, I’ve downloaded and installed a copy from the Apple Apps Store for my iPhone. It took my current location, found me five dog parks and gave me directions to all five via the Google Maps application. Then I watched part of an episode on “Socializing your Puppy.”

It’s very similar to UrbanSpoon (for restaurants) and AroundMe (for other amenities and attractions). I like that sort of application, and I use them often when we’re away from home because you can look something up, stash the directions in the iPhone, and refer to them as you go.

Very handy for us dog-loving early adopters.
