With numerous new pet tech gadgets hitting the market, Wall Street Journal’s Joanna Stern let her furry pal, Browser, try his paw at critiquing the trends. This adorable Pet Tech, Reviewed by a Dog video is a must see for any dog lover! Here are six of the newest and best pet tech products.
The company PetChatz boasts of being “the only complete sensory experience for your pet”. And it surely does provide an unparalleled experience with its two-way HD video phone. At $379.99 this somewhat expensive gadget allows you to see your pet in real time and for them to see you. With the free app you can dispense “Treatz” and essential oil calming droplets (“Scentz”) to your pet at any time whether you are at home or away. Mischief moments that your pet might be tempted to can be identified by the sound and motion detector and the PawCall, for an additional $99.99, allows your pet to call you!
The Petzi is a similar device to the Petchatz but is a little more affordable at $169.95. With a wide-angle night vision camera and a universal treat launcher, the little extras on this unit will allow you to see where your dog is in the room and reward him/her.
How about activity trackers? These are definitely a great buy for any dog owner, as they help ensure the safety of our furry friends. The stylish Wonderwoof comes in a bow tie shape that attaches to your dog’s collar. With recommended activity levels for your breed and the smart ability to calculate your dog’s exercise amounts when you are not with them, this piece of technology is helpful in keeping your dog in great shape. We think that a great addition is the map-enabled feature on the app that allows you to see which neighborhood dogs are out and about and ready for a play-date! Depending on occasional online promotions, you can get this cute bow tie for $57-95.
With amazing nationwide GPS tracking, Whistle, is a great option for keeping your dog’s whereabouts known. You can program a “home” or a safe area on the app and receive text message alerts to notify you if your dog has ventured farther than the boundaries. The Whistle also monitors health and exercise activity.
In the realm of techy games for pets, CleverPet is the cream of the crop. This $299.00 dome can be filled with your pet’s food and challenges them to learn sequences on a light-up touch pad for reward. The result is positive reinforcement training that allows your dog to learn while having fun.
If fetch is more their thing, your dog will love SmartPult! This ball launching machine chucks mini tennis balls and even dispenses treats. With an adjustable throwing distance ranging from 3-8 meters, every breed of dog will find it entertaining. This smart toy is also enabled via an app.
