The idea first came about after Kolker, BetterPet, Inc.'s CEO, got an energetic Cocker Spaniel named Eddie. While exploring Los Angeles with his new best friend, Kolker was curious as to what were the most dog friendly places in the city.

Los Angeles transplants Jon Kolker (Pikesville) and Gareth Wilson (Towson) are the co-creators of Where My Dogs At, an application, currently in the beta testing stage, that is aiming to be the go-to source of information on dog-centric locales and a social media hub for the dog-owning community.
Set for a September launch, Where My Dogs At will function as a Yelp for pets. Shown here (from left): members of the Better Pet, Inc. team, Aareth Wilson, Richard Lung and Jon Kolker. Shown here (from left): members of the Better Pet, Inc. team, Gareth Wilson, Richard Lung and Jon Kolker. Said Kolker, 28, "This will be the app for dog lovers." The creation of the app spawned as a result of Kolker and Wilson's friendship. Attached to his pup, Kolker would always walk around town wondering which places were the best suited for both he and his dog. Kolker presented the question to Wilson who suggested that the dilemma laid the perfect framework for a potential app. Now, Kolker is CEO and Wilson is president and creative director of Better Pet, Inc., which they started about a year ago. The release of the app's first official version is scheduled for September, and Kolker said the goal is to have more than one million users by this time next year. Dog owners' affection for their pets is the key to the app's value. They want to include their furry friends in their day-to-day lives. Where My Dogs At, Kolker and Wilson said, is the first app to provide a convenient and fun way to achieve that goal. "It's healthy to explore your city or wherever it is you are, and it's even better if you can bring your best friend," Kolker said.
