The better you take care of yourself, the better you're taking care of your pet.

Fiona C., Gwendolyn L., Emilie R., Debra T.

With Inu Walk, the user is responsible for taking care of a virtual pet that lives on their phone. Users record how much water they drink per day, track their daily sleep schedule, and the phone automatically records how much they walk. A combination of all three of these attributes affects your dog's happiness and mood.

Especially in the tech industry, work and efficiency is often prioritized over personal health.

The simple interface makes it easy to use, and the cute graphics can help parents who want to teach their kids responsible habits. Ultimately, though, users of any age will find it useful for tracking daily self-care.

"We hope that our very simple game can make people's lives a little bit healthier."
