There are many different gadgets large and small for your dog. They might be functional or just fun for them (or you) to play with. Either way, there’s a lot of new products being released that provide new options for pet owners.
Here are four of the most useful gadgets suitable for your dog.
There comes a time in the life of your dog where you don’t have the arm strength to lob out another tennis ball for your buddy to catch and return to you. What do you do then? Well the iFetch is the answer. It’s a clever ball thrower that contains three smaller tennis balls (the iFetch Too model uses full-sized tennis balls) that shoot out for your dog to catch.
There’s a place for your dog to drop the ball so that it reloads and shoots the ball out again. The iFetch balls are a distinctive blue color with a white iFetch branding on them. They should be easy to spot in the undergrowth. The ball throwing device runs either on batteries or plugs directly into the power in the house. When using the battery powered mode, it’s able to be placed anywhere that’s safe to shoot tennis balls.
GPS Pet Tracker Without the Pesky Subscription Cost
A pet tracker isn’t something new for your dog. However, they usually come with a monthly or yearly subscription that adds to the pet ownership costs for the household. The PetTronix GPS pet tracker is different because once it’s been purchased, there’s no subscription to keep up with.
Set a GPS fence around your location to track your dog. The dog collar that contains the IPX7 waterproof transmitter has a range of 3-5 miles (depending on terrain). An app is used to track the transmitter. The apps may be used with one or two dogs at the same time, so two dog households don’t need to worry. The GPS position is updated every few seconds, with a notification popping up should your pet stray outside of the GPS fence that you’ve created.
Smart Dog Feeding While at Work
Have you ever wanted to feed your pet, but been at work and not back for a few hours? Leaving food out for the day isn’t always great because some dogs will tend to overeat and make themselves sick. Enter the Petnet Smart Feeder.
The Petnet Smart Feeder stores up 7 pounds of food and releases the tray at a fixed time. Scheduled feeding is a better solution for your pet than allowing food to go to waste. There is a convenient lid that pops open at the top to add more food before you go out. Food scheduling as well as portion control is managed from a convenient app available for Android and iOS.
Find Your Dog Easier in the Dark
The Halo Mini LED collar is a special device that lights up with an LED strip when the lights go down. The illumination can be seen across 360-degrees, so it’s easy to spot your dog at night in the back yard. There’s a couple of useful modes for the collar too. The first is a flashing mode and the other glows. There are three sizes to fit different size doggies and the collar will also fit cats too.
Keeping your pet safe and being able to find your dog are two key concerns for all pet owners. Clever devices provide new ways to connect with your pet and keep them well fed too. Pet ownership is getting easier by the day.
