Furry Friend Pet Tech
It’s down to the grind, when we’re all caught up in the hustle bustle of the holidays, checking off those gift lists, making sure no one was missed… but what about those furry friends in your life? Do you include your beloved pet in your Christmas gift giving? There are actually many tech products out there these days that could improve you and your pets life! Let’s face it… it’s basically a gift to yourself and who doesn’t enjoy that?
The Furbo Dog Camera is a Webcam and treat tossing device that kills two birds with one stone and gives you a piece of mind when you’re away. With 1080p HD video and infrared LED night vision, you can not only spy on your pets activity, but capture photo & video footage to share with family and friends. The 2-way audio option can help prevent separation anxiety so you can talk with them and ease their worries or coax them off the bed if they’re being too lazy. Other features include treat tossing and a bark alert.
Does your pet suffer from separation anxiety, fear during thunderstorms, excessive barking, or crate training issues? The Pet Acoustics Bluetooth Speakers Calming Canine mobile Bluetooth speaker is loaded with music by Pet Acoustics that are clinically proven to ease your dogs anxiety.
Have a pet that requires a special diet? Try the Petkit Fresh Smart Digital White Feeding Pet Bowl! The digital scale shows you the weight of the food in the bowl so you have better control of their portion sizes. It’s great for pets who have special diets for health purposes. The Smart bowl is also Anti-Bacterial for added freshness.
If your pet is fairly reliable in the lawn but you’re worried about them wandering off on a random whim, the Whistle 3 Dog & Cat GPS Tracker & Activity Monitor could work for you. This app based GPS tracking system sends out a whistle when they wander close to their boundaries. In addition, it logs their daily activity and lets you know of any drastic changes. The best candidates for this, would be elderly pets so you can have a piece of mind that they are safe and sound. I don’t think I’d recommend this for highly active dogs prone to running off, though. A full-blown containment system might be a better alternative for those personalities.
Does your cat need some new entertainment? The PetSafe Cheese Cat Toy is like Wack-A-Mole for cats! The mice pop in and out of each side of the Swiss cheese block so your cat can play peek-a-boo all day long. Endless fun for your little feline! While you’re away, the cats can play!
Don’t make your small pet miss out on all the fun… take them with you in a Cat and Small Dog Sling! They’ll feel safe, involved, and you don’t have to worry about their whereabouts.
The fetching pooch will never be bored with an automatic ball thrower! The All for Paws Interactive Fetch’N Treat Dog Toy will be dog’s best friend, when they get a treat for bringing the ball back. For active dogs, this is a great source of endless exercise and fun until they tire themselves out!
What cat or dog doesn’t go ballistic over a laser… PetSafe Bolt Cat Toy could be the light of their lives and keep them entertained both with and without you in the house. Either hold the wand in your hand or set it on a table and let the rolling ball project random light patterns all over the room.
We all have bad habits. If you’re having problems keeping your fur-friends out of inappropriate places (such as the toilet bowl!) providing them with their own dedicated Refilling Toilet Water Bowl could satisfy their nasty needs. The refill tank on back provides an added benefit since you won’t have to refill their bowl as often!
Ok, this one may only be appreciated by the most obsessive cat owners out there, but it’s worth mentioning. If you have an Echo, you can get an app called Meow Skill that acts as a virtual cat so your kitty can have a back and forth conversation with Alexa… in meow talk. Yes, the app will meow back to your cat each time it meows.
