Dating App For Dog Lovers Launching In Seattle

Dating App For Dog Lovers Launching In Seattle

Press Release: Available for iOS starting on Oct. 23 and for Android in 2020

SEATTLE (Oct. 9, 2019) — Dogs are great companions and, now, they can be your “wingpup.” After all, who doesn’t need a little bark in their dating journey? Wowzer is throwing single dog lovers a bone. Launching on Oct. 23 for iOS, Wowzer (gowowzer.com) is the dating app for dog lovers. When looking for connections on Wowzer, you control what profile information and preferences you share. Dog owners can put their best pup forward in a companion dog profile. Wowzer does the rest to connect you with potential matches.

The app will be free during the launch, with a suite of premium membership services that will be released at a later date. Initially, Wowzer will launch in the Seattle area, where dog-friendly workplaces abound and the so-called “Seattle Freeze” can make it feel like you’re in the dog house. All dog lovers are welcome whether they own a dog or not.

Wowzer is the brainchild of co-founders Michi Suzuki, a lifestyle public relations and events professional, and Stephanie Worley, a veteran marketer in the tech industry. The longtime friends and dog lovers believe canine intervention is just the tonic for all the anxiety that modern dating can cause. Having a dog by your side helps create a more authentic, relaxing and fun dating experience.

“We’re passionate about dogs, and we’re suckers for love,” said Worley, who, with Suzuki, had originally planned to open a daycare for dogs. Over time, as they helped mutual friends navigate the online dating world, they recognized an opportunity. 

“This business was born out of a desire to help our single dog-loving friends meet people who share their interests and values,” Suzuki said. “The fact that it can help a lot more people is really heartening for us.”
