If you’re a dog lover and always wondering where you can take your best friend with you, besides the usual dog park and pet store, then FidoFactor is for you.
The site bills itself as the ultimate guide to dog-friendly locations and is, as far as I can tell, exactly that. It lists dog-friendly restaurants, venues, book stores, and more all over the country in major cities like San Francisco, Chicago, Austin and others.
The website is very well-done and easily navigated to find canine-loving venues in your area. Just search for (or click on) a city, tell it what you’re looking for (restaurant, book store, etc.) and go. The iPhone app is just as well-made, offering the same easy click-and-find use on your phone.
Most of the locations are user-generated, so instead of just blind cataloging of places and blatant advertising, the site is full of user-created content with excellent information, tips, and more. Listings have ratings that you can contribute to and everything appears on a convenient Google Map to make it easy.
