Community Guidelines

We’re all neighbours here. Houndr is a place to come together and support one another in everyday life. B/c we think everyone should have an everyday support system they can count on. Our goal with these Guidelines is to create some rules that better ensure all of us feel safe among & supported by our neighbours.

We take this stuff seriously. Violating these Guidelines may result in removal from the platform. If you need to report bad actors on Houndr, please email us with details here.



Identity & behaviour

Connect authentically.

Houndr profiles are intended to represent real humans and dogs in our neighbourhoods. Any profile on Houndr must be honest and authentic. This includes being transparent about intentions and affiliations. Foster meaningful & genuine connections.

No fake accounts & impersonation.

Creating fake accounts, malicious accounts, or accounts meant to impersonate another person is prohibited on Houndr.

Act respectfully.

Respecting one another’s time, attention, personal choices, and personal boundaries is essential to creating a safe and trusting community. Be respectful in interactions with humans and in content posted on the platform. Houndr monitors and restricts behaviours that are dishonest, undermine the integrity of the platform, violate personal boundaries, or serve to intentionally upset people.

Always think about what you would say if you were talking to someone face-to-face. Inflammatory language won’t be tolerated. Keep conversations civil.

Be nice.

Conversation is an essential part of Houndr’s community. All we ask is that those conversations stay honest and considerate. Bottom line: treat others as you would like to be treated. Hate speech, supremacy, or behaviour that incites hate or violence against individuals or groups of people based on who they are or their beliefs, is prohibited. Bullying, harassment, exploitations, and acts of hate undermine community building in safe spaces where humans can trust one another. Houndr enforces against any of these actions.

Be safe.

All users should take ownership over their personal safety and the safety of any dog in their care. Don’t put yourself or others in danger. All users must be observant of local laws when using Houndr.

No threats, violence, or personal endangerment.

Using Houndr to promote, facilitate or organize violent, criminal, or non-consensual actions that endanger anyone, including any dog, physically, mentally, or emotionally is prohibited.

If you see something off, tell us. We’ll take action if we see someone violating these Guidelines. Sometimes it means giving someone a warning. Sometimes it means removing their account from the platform. We have zero qualms about doing this.

Be nice neighbours, everyone. We’re better together.
