Dogster.com has been called the MySpace for pets. Like human social networking websites, Dogster allows your dog can have its own profile, post photos, list likes and dislikes, join groups and start an online dog diary.
Wacky? Yes. But the free pet networking site is booming.
Dogster and its companion site, Catster.com, currently have more than 500,000 pet profiles, including more than 12,000 dogs and cats from New Jersey. Hundred of new pet profiles and blogs are being added everyday, according to the California-based site.
We asked Dogster founder and chief executive officer Ted Rheingold, 37, how the pet networking craze got started.
