Maybe I just have an awkward puppy, but Sparky is one of those pets that you’d consider a “chewer.” So when introducing him to the “Varram” — a “robot for pets” — it seemed that Sparky was more annoyed by it than excited.
CES may be the home for various gadgets, drones, foldable phones, and roll-up televisions, but if you’re a pet owner, there are plenty of items aimed at you and your four-legged friend as well. Wagz has three new items, the Explore Smart Collar, the Go-Smart Door, and Roam’s Smart Shield.
Pet doors have long been a staple of pet ownership. They make it much easier to automate the process of letting your dog or cat outside and back in again. If you have a fenced in yard, for instance, it doesn’t make sense to stop what you’re doing and let your dog in or out every hour on the hour.
Having a pet can be very therapeutic, but sometimes, your favorite four-legged friend needs a bit of TLC as well. And if you have one of those pups that can tend to be frightened come Bath time, there’s a product available you should consider purchasing. That product is called the Commbo by J-Line.
If you’re looking for a way to feed your pet when you’re too lazy to get out of bed, or if you aren’t going to get home in time to feed your furry friend, check out the Petnet SmartFeeder.
Some dogs don’t like the rain. Our mini golden doodle Nava isn’t one of them. Some dogs don’t like the snow. Nava DEFINITELY isn’t one of them. But when Nava is out in the snow her thick, curly fur becomes packed with the stuff, and she turns into a fur-cicle. So the other day I tried Pawz aka doggie-booties.
When Raina saw the CleverPet game console on Facebook, she said, “We need to get Nava one of these.” (Nava is our eighteen-month-old miniature golden doodle.) I asked why the dog needs a game console. Raina replied, “Not need… want… she’ll love it.” This is the first in a series of posts about Nava and her app-controlled game.
For the holidays I wanted to get my dog Sparky something other than cheap Amazon squeaker toys that he typically destroys in under an hour, so when I was presented with the chance to review the LINK AKC Smart Collar for Dogs, I was excited at testing a new product on Sparky that he couldn’t possibly rip to shreds.
There are plenty of sophisticated gadgets coming out for pets these days – heck, we’ve lost count for how many GPS tracking colors there are available now, but Nitey Leash is the first time we’ve encountered innovation in a leash! The concept behind Nitey Leash is simple – it’s a LED leash that lights up.
These are some of the things I saw at a recent Petrend Events showcase; I’ve picked out the items that I thought were the coolest.
Cat’s love to hunt; it’s in their basic nature, but this is something that indoor cats don’t get to take advantage of. If your cat never goes outside, how can you allow him (or her) to do one of the most basic things cats need to thrive? You might consider using Doc & Phoebe’s Indoor No-Bowl Cat Feeders.
Having a puppy presents a new set of challenges for every dog owner, but one that is ever present is: You have to walk them. And rather than getting tangled when your dog decides to split the pole or walk where you can’t go, you should pick up the TaoTronic Retractable Dog Leash.
If you or your children have a small handheld pet at home, but don’t have a place for that pet to play within your home, then you should check out Multipet’s Pop-Up Pet Playland.
We are in full swing here at CES 2017, and one surprise tech product that has been making waves here in Las Vegas is Scollar, a smart collar for small cats and dogs. Designed to make caring for your pet as easy as it is to love them, the Scollar is an easy to use, fairly good looking collar for your pet that hosts not only an interactive display screen,…
Whistle, the market leader in pet tracking and monitoring devices announced their Whistle 3 on Wednesday at CES 2017 here in Las Vegas. Made to locate a misplaced pet the Whistle 3 also monitors your four-legged friend’s daily exercise.
For many cat owners, one of the hardest things to deal with leaving them for the day is knowing that their four-legged friend is comfortable without their owner around. But this new smart pet feeder is here to make sure that your kitty is cared for even in your absence.
One issue that a lot of people have in their home after purchasing a bag of dog food is the fact after you open it, if you’re not using a clip it just sits out. Why not get something stylish for your pup’s food that will keep it fresh?
Having a pet in your home while you’re at work sometimes can scare a lot of pet owners. You never truly know what could happen to your best friend, and sometimes you want to look after them from your desk like the stalker parent you are.
I never thought that an automatic pet feeder would be something I’d want or enjoy using, but during the review process for the PeTreaT PetPal WiFi Automatic Pet Feeder, I’ve learned how convenient and fun having one can be. Of course, there are other less expensive automatic pet feeders available, but this one is a gadget-loving pet owner’s dream.
If you’ve got an indoor cat, then you’ve got a litter box of some kind. If you’ve got a conventional litter box, then you know all about the bending, scooping, and discarding of clumped feces and urine that is a necessary evil of cat ownership. There is a better way, and that way is the self-cleaning Litter-Robot Open Air.
It’s been exactly eight years since I unboxed my first Litter-Robot and reviewed it. Since then, I have convinced several friends and family members to buy one, I’ve purchased two more, and I’ve given the two older versions I had to friends with cats — all of these Litter-Robots are still going strong!
