Waghunt’s mission is simple – create a match made in heaven where families, seniors, and singles alike can find the right dog aligned with their interests. Just like humans, dogs have personalities of their own and, as much as we love our pets, sometimes dog owners neglect to choose a dog that suits their lifestyle. This can result in adopting a dog and going through the agonizing process of returning it.
In an effort to decrease wrong matches among dogs and owners while easing the stress associated with picking a pooch, I designed Waghunt. This was a personal mobile app project I worked on. My hypothesis was if dogs were matched according to their owner’s lifestyle then maybe the likelihood of a dog being sent to the wrong home would be decreased. The chatbot in the app helps collect info and instant returns curated dogs that would fit the questions answered by the new dog owner.
