About us

For 20-40 thousand years, dogs have been humans' best friend... and now it’s time for us to become theirs. Our mission at Petli is to help people understand and communicate with their dog on a deeper level. The Petli app will help people become responsible dog parents from day one, in a fun and mobile format.

By utilizing gamification and personalization, we teach people ethology as well as how to train their dogs using positive reinforcement. Training programs created by some of Sweden's best dog trainers help the user better understand and train their four legged family members. We even offer personal feedback and guidance from our in house dog trainers, to help the user succeed. As a user you can also take exams and earn medals to share on social media to show off your dog's progress.

We are on a mission to help people become their dog's best friend.
