Exploring DoggySpace

Now more and more, social networking sites that target pet lovers are appearing on the scene. The latest is Doggyspace, which launched in July.

According to a recent AP article, people are signing up on pet-oriented sites to "get help and support on specific issues that go beyond traditional message boards." In the last month, Doggyspace has attracted more than 3,000 registered users — of which nearly 80 percent are female according to Levi Thornton, founder of the Virginia-based company. The new site's fans currently include everyone from early adopter "dog-fanatics" to stay-at-home moms to tweens and teens. Thornton predicts that Doggyspace will have racked up more than two million accounts by the end of this year.
