Dogs in Tel Aviv

Photographer: Abir Sultan

 

Tel Aviv is home to 25,000 registered dogs, and the ratio of dogs to humans (1 dog for every 17 residents) is considered one of the highest in the world.

 

The Tel Aviv municipality has launched a special service card for dog owners called 'Digi-Dog'. The card gives informations via a mobile app about veterinary services, pet-friendly activities, available dog walkers, training courses and directions to the nearest of the 70 public dog parks and beaches.

 

The Digi-Dog service is connected to Tel Aviv’s Digi-Tel resident card system that offers location-based informations and discounts via newsletters and text messages.

 

The application is another example why Tel Aviv received an award as Smart City at a digital expo in 2014.
