There’s no question that technology is helping us do so much more than it did in the past. From wearing a watch that counts our steps to driving a driver-less car, technology is changing our lives!
All of these technological developments certainly haven’t left our pets behind, and we will tell you how.
Recently, we’ve noticed there have been quite a number of innovative pet-related developments entering the markets. Just like how emotional support animals change and improve our lives, human-made technology is there to change and improve their lives. Therefore, we’ve decided to compile a list of some useful ones to share with you.
1 Hoison Automatic Pet Feeder
Automatic pet feeders can be a lifesaver for busy pet parents, and the Hoison is one of the best out there. Was the meeting run late? Stuck in traffic? Simply log on to the Hoison app and with the click of a button, you can dispense your dog’s dinner. It’s that easy!
You can program it to dispense just the right amount, so you don’t need to worry about your dog over-eating. It has an anti-blockage design, which means your dog’s food won’t get trapped inside.
The Hoison feeder is also equipped with an HD camera and microphone, so you can see and communicate with your pet, too! Being able to check-in with your dog can give you peace of mind that he’s not getting too lonely or tearing up your couch cushions. You can tell him you love him, that you’ll be home soon, and reward him with a nice dinner all from the convenience of your phone.
2 Pebby Robotic Pet Sitter
It might look like just another ball to your dog, but in reality, the Pebby is so much more. This fun little ball uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology to create a remote-controlled toy that keeps your pet entertained for hours!
The Pebby is a pet technology that also does double duty as a pet sitter, so you don’t have to worry what Rover is up to while you’re away. It’s equipped with a wide-angle fisheye lens that gives you the optimal view of your pup (and in real-time!) whenever you want to check in. And the best part? With the Pebby, you can actually talk to your dog using the two-way communication feature.
So if you’re missing your pup while you’re at work, you can pull up your Pebby app to say hello. Use your remote to send the Pebby flying around the house while your dog gives chase. Then when it’s time for your next meeting, you can toss it on autoplay.
3 PAW5’s Rock ‘N Roll Dog Bowl
Dogs who scarf down their food can wind up with all kinds of digestive problems, and that’s no fun for anyone. If you’re worried your pup is eating a little too quickly for his own good, an interactive dog bowl is a perfect thing for a perfect little dog!
Our favorite is the PAW5 Rock ‘N Roll dog bowl. This gadget is a half toy, half dog bowl — you pour up to four cups of food into the bowl, and your dog has to sniff around and nudge it to get the kibble inside. The puzzle-like design stimulates your dog’s natural hunting instincts, which means he’ll be entertained for a long time as he works to get his meal.
You can also use the PAW5 bowl for treats. Need to run errands for a few hours? Pop some treats into the bowl and your dog will have a blast hunting for treats while you’re gone. Image Source
4 Bites and Play by Petcube
We know how hard it is to leave your pet at home every day. Why can’t we all just stay-at-home puppy parents? Maybe one day, but in the meantime, Petcube’s Bite and Play high tech pet products can help you stay in touch with your pup during long outings.
Bites is a pet technology that lets you dispense treats to your dog with the tap of a button, while Play has a laser light that beams around the house to keep your pup entertained. Both offer cameras so you can check in on your dog, but the Bites offers two-way communication so you can send your dog a message if you’d like.
Get one of them, or get both! Either way, your dog will feel less lonely at home and you’ll be happier knowing that your dog isn’t sitting by the door crying and waiting for you to come home and feed it.
5 Scollar Mini Collar
This is one smart dog collar. With this collar, you can monitor and train your pet. Its main function is as a GPS tracker so you know where your pup is at all times, but it can also send you flea & tick medication reminders, open RF-enabled pet doors, let you know it’s time for Fido’s dinner and more.
If your pet does get separated from you, the GPS tracker will lead you right to him. Plus, the collar has a touch display that lets whoever finds your pup get the dog’s name and your info.
The Scollar is the total pet care system!
6 Pet Soothing Stereo
Music can be so soothing. If you enjoy putting on some tunes to unwind and relax, who is to say your pet wouldn’t enjoy the same? Give it a try with high tech pet products like Pet Tunes.
This Bluetooth speaker emits a special frequency that has been clinically proven to reduce stress and calm your pet’s anxiety. It’s just what the doctor ordered for dogs with separation anxiety or pups that get frightened during a storm.
Pet Tunes is also portable, so you can bring it along in the car or to the vet’s office if those environments tend to be overwhelming for your pup.
If you miss your pet terribly when you’re away, the Petzi can help. This webcam for pets allows you to speak to your pet and see the live video while you’re gone. Its treat-dispensing feature means that pets will be drawn to it. They’ll hear your voice and receive a treat when interacting with the webcam. It’s even equipped with night vision, and you can connect to the Petzi Social Network to share images of your furry friend. Image Source

10 Mattel Puppy Tweets

When your dog is active or barking, it triggers an automatic post to your Twitter account. But don’t worry. The tweets are all fictitious.
