Dig Review

Dig is an app created by sisters Ley and Casey Isaacson for dog-lovers like them. The inspiration for the app came after one of them had a failed relationship because the partner is not so fond of having dogs around. Instead of putting it only under the interests section of your profile, Dig managed to make it revolved around how much you love dogs. With that in mind, you have at least one great common thing with all the members of the app.

Although it's still relatively new compared to other dating apps available in the market, Dig has become more popular and has been featured by different magazines and online publications because of its unique concept. Aside from that, it is also their pride to be a member of Pledge 1%, which means that they allot 1% of the app's total revenue for a good cause.

So if you are a dog owner or lover, or both, read more of our in-depth review and see if this app is for you!

Making Contact on Dig

Dig Match
  • Messaging is only for matched members
  • Dig another member's profile to get their attention
  • Browse profiles for free
  • Use treats to "Really Dig"
  • Join public forums
  • Matching parameters can be adjusted anytime

Dig is a simple app where you can mingle with like-minded individuals. There are several ways on how you would communicate with other members.

First, when you visit a profile, you will find three icons— Dig, Really Dig, and Pass.

  • Dig (Green Heart icon)- a member will not be notified unless you use a treat, but if by destiny you both dig each other, then it's a match!
  • Really Dig (Yellow Star icon)- you have to use a treat so you'll be able to have additional treats to click on this icon.
  • Pass (Stop sign)- You'll skip the profile.

You can only start messaging with another member once both of you clicked Dig or Really Dig on each other's profile.

For better matching, you may adjust the settings on your profile where you can change the search distance radius, who you are looking for, age, and the dogs' size.

Dig Profile Quality

Dig Profile
  • Profile information is limited
  • Edit basic information anytime
  • Uploading your profile photos for free
  • Share a photo of your dog as well
  • Refer-a-Profile and Treats Tab are available for iOS users
  • Easy to understand icons for Dig, Really Dig and Pass

    You will not get much information by viewing other member's profiles. Most members skip the bio narrative. But you can view nice photos of other members with their dog babies for free. Everyone is entitled to upload up to six photos for the member and another six for the dog.

    Android and iOS users will have a slightly different experience when it comes to the features on the profile page. The Refer-a-friend feature and the Treats tab are not available for Android users thus, the icons will not appear on their profiles.

    The moderators are strict when it comes to the photos that were uploaded. Here are some guidelines to avoid your photos to be taken down by the app administrators.

    • Only upload a photo of a minor if he/she is accompanied by a legally-aged person
    • Make sure that your face is visible on all the photos
    • Only wholesome photos are allowed
    • You should own the photos that you will upload
    • No photos of illegal activities
    • Don't upload watermarks, symbols, or texts
    • Upload the photos on the correct section of your profile

    Dig Real Life Review

    "I am so happy to find this app. I am a die-hard dog-lover, a mommy of three cute little doggos. I find it really hard to meet a man who have the same passion as I am when it comes to dogs. But not with Dig! Met a few friends on this app already, hoping to find a daddy for my puppies soon!" -Ciara, 26

    "Do not join this app if you are not a real dog person. I met this girl, she doesn't have a dog but she said she would love to have one in the future. Then when she met my dog, the true color showed up. Of course I chose my dog over her. The app is good, but I hope all of the members are legitimate dog lovers."-Mond, 29

    Design and Usability

    The design of Dig is really cute and appropriate for dog-lovers. From the name of the app itself, to the names of the features and the app's graphic designs, members will appreciate the over-all theme of Dig. It is straightforward and the icons are easy to understand. Members, regardless of their expertise when it comes to technology, wouldn't be having a hard time with it.

    The app is compatible with any iOS and Android devices, however, iPhone users can experience more features such as Treats and Refer a Friend. At the time of this review, those mentioned features are still being developed to be included with the Android version's features.

    Editors Conclusion

    DatingScout.com Author Chris Pleines
    With a lot of positive user reviews and data gathered during testing, it is safe to say that Dig is a promising app and has a very interesting niche. Although it is still relatively new, the app has a lot of potentials since there are a lot of people now who are very fond of dogs. However, since it is just a "young" app, the number of members is not that many yet for all locations. It is available all over the world but most of its members are from the United States. There's no doubt though that in a few months or a few years' time, it will gather the attention of many users around the globe if its marketing strategy will be pushed to its best.Overall, this app is great for dog-lovers. But if you are looking for broader member qualities, you may check out other reviews that we have under the Dating Apps category.
