Offensive ads...

I may be alone in this, but I've used the app less and less because of these type of ads... And there have been some that even use photoshop on women's bottoms to make them seem even more promiscuous in pictures and what not... I am not sure if anyone can help it, but it does not seem appropriate for all ages.

I'm using the same app I've always had, petguide

Agree wholeheartedly! Not using the app less, but figuring out the quickest way to get past them.

You must be getting here some other way than I am. I haven't seen any ads at all. But if you must look at those or other such ads to get here then yes, you should complain.

The worst is sometimes in my hurry to click the menu button, I will click the ad cause it pops up first >. <

Apps have no control over what ad get placed on them

Delete the petsguide app (its no longer supported and their new one is a pile of Dog poo)

Download Tapatalk (spend the couple of bucks for the Paid version = no ads) create an account search for goldenretriever,

and may all you days be rainbows
