Fido Factor

Hey Barkistas-- have you checked out Fido Factor? This awesome, free site features user-generated reviews about pup-friendly locations in YOUR neighborhood. Search for restaurants, coffee shops, stores, services, hotels-- just about anything you'd like to do with your furry friend. In addition, they've got great city dog tips and advice (check out their mission page). While the database is still in beta and a little bit on the slim side right now, we think it's going to be a great resource for all things Fido.

In addition (and more importantly), every time a member adds or reviews a location in San Francisco, Fido Factor makes a donation to the San Francisco SPCA. How amazing?! For more information, visit their site.

So San Fran (and all urban) Barkistas, what are you waiting for? Get those paws moving and those reviews coming in!

xoxo The Barkistas


  1. Fido Factor is great and their mission page is brilliant!

  2. Thanks for mentioning Fido Factor! We've been working on Fido Factor in our spare time since last summer. The listings are growing rapidly. Currently we get about 50-100 new locations per week. It only takes a couple motivated users in your area to get things started.

    We also offer the free iPhone app and a mobile version of the site. ( The search is actually better on the mobile site (for now). We hope to update the iPhone app later this year with better search and social features.

    If you are a dog friendly business owner you can also submit, claim, and edit your listings.

    Thanks for all the support! Don't forget to submit your favorite dog friendly locations, reviews, & photos. See you at the dog park!
