Dogiz partners with trusted British pet food brand Harringtons to provide dog owners with the knowledge to make better decisions for their pets
A brand-new app designed to empower dog owners with the knowledge to make better decisions for their pet – Dogiz – has launched to support with the health of the nation’s dogs, and reward owners for being more active.
App users will be encouraged and incentivised with Dogiz coins to improve the health of their pets by keeping them more active. All coins received can be used for discounts on premium products and services in the Dogiz shop, including the likes of pet food brand Harringtons so pets can benefit from naturally nutrition, delicious and wholesome dog food.
Dog owners will be able to take part in a host of different activities to earn rewards – from tracking walks, to providing weight, memory or mood updates associated with their pets and taking part in quizzes. They will also be able to see how their dog’s fitness levels compare with other canines in their local area via a leaderboard.
The innovative platform began with two students, Danny Djanogly and Alon Zlatkin, who met at university and bonded over the struggles of raising their dogs whilst juggling a busy urban life.

Speaking of their journey, Founder and COO Danny Djanogly, said: “Our dogs Jack & Mufassa quickly became Chief Dog Officer & Chief Treat Eater, and the rest as they say is dogstory! Our staff are all pet owners and dog lovers and have helped us build on Jack & Mufassa’s legacy to create the go-to-app for every dog owner.”
Owners will also have the opportunity to participate in Harringtons’ ‘Miles for Meals’ programme – where for each mile walked with their dog, a meal is donated to a dog in a shelter.
Danny continued: “Our mission is to help owners gain a deeper understanding of their dog’s health and reward them for being more active with their dogs. As dog owners, we know how hard it can be to manage your pup’s life, so we created Dogiz to do all the hard work for you. We are so proud that established and well-loved British brand Harringtons understands the Dogiz vision and has joined the platform.”
Will Bushell, Head of Dog Marketing at Harringtons, added: “At Harringtons we are on a mission to make natural, wholesome pet food accessible and affordable for all – to ultimately to ensure pets across the nation are happier and healthier. Our partnership with Dogiz will allow us to reward owners that are looking to improve the health of their dogs. We have a shared vision, and we’re excited for the launch.”
The Dogiz app is available to download from the App Store and the Google Play Store.
