The Tech industry is growing. The last we checked, they were manufacturing gadgets to meet human needs and to bring them ease. But with humans comes forward the trend that people love to spend on their furry friends, like, a lot. These gadgets not only facilitate the animals but also bring lots of comfort in the lives of their owners.
I don’t think if it is the same with every fur baby owner, but I have spent hours on my Optimum internet, looking at feather toys and fur bunnies for them to cuddle with. But since the time I came across some of these amazing tech gadgets online, there is no going back to stuffed ones anymore.
And after all the research, I have prepared this special list for you. With the holidays coming up, now you don’t even have to search the web crazily for all the gifts you can get for your fur baby. Because nothing is too much when it comes to them! Just choose one right here!
The Fetch Game Buddy
Do you love playing fetch with your fur baby? But there are days when you are too tired from working and don’t exactly feel like throwing the ball again and again. This gadget can save you. There are many models available in the market, like the iFetch automatic ball launcher. It can be used equally well for indoor and outdoor playing. You just have to show your dog to place the ball into the top of the machine, and the machine will do the rest for you. It can throw up to a distance of 30 feet.
You can use it with a power cord or with batteries. The fun part? Mostly all of these come with a guidebook to help you on how to teach your dog to play. Be it a rainy indoor day or a day in the park, weekends are never going to be hectic again!
The Pet Fountain
Ever been sitting in your office and wondered if a bug has contaminated your pet’s water bowl? We all do. Tech has provided a solution to that too. There are automated pet fountains available in the market that can provide fresh water every time your pet gets thirsty. The water capacities vary, and they go up to 170 ounces, so they are suitable for pets of all sizes. They come up with replaceable filters that can eliminate bad smells and tastes to give fresh water every time.
These fountains usually come up with built-in water reservoirs. Less refilling is a convenience. You can also adjust the quantity of water flow, depending on the need and size of your pet.
Pet Video Communication Devices
Such a pity we cannot FaceTime our pets all the time! But there are such handy alternates to try out now. There are video communication devices available in the market now that you can get installed at your place and talk to them any time you want.
All you have to do is just open the connecting app on your smartphone or your desktop and hit the ‘chat’ button. It rings a bell on your home device, informing your canine friend about an incoming call. Some models come with a button which when pressed, can gift your pet a treat from your side!
A Pet Whistle
Yes, we know you have one for playing, but this one is different. Excuse me for putting a stressful thought in your mind, but there are times when our furry friends can go missing. It can take some time before you can find them again. There are now gadgets that can lower the risk of losing our loved ones. The Whistle 3 is such a device. It is a GPS device that tracks the activity of your pet. You can attach it directly to their collar because it is very light weighted. Equally good for cats and dogs. You can connect it directly to your mobile via an app, and it will transmit all of your pet’s activity to you, including their location. You can even put the location of your home and set is as the safe zone for your pet. This way you will get notified every time your pet steps out of the area.
Cat Collar Cameras
These are specifically designed for your cats, but there’s no reason you cannot attach one to your pup’s collar too! Ever wondered what are the mysterious activities of your pets once you let them go out? Or what places do they wander in and what friends they make in the neighborhood? (Okay now, that’s been taken too far, but we do wonder, don’t we?)
There are light, little cameras you can attach to their collars, and check out their outdoor activities. Some models come up with batteries that last up to two hours!
Found anything interesting for your baby yet? I guess I don’t have to switch on Hallmark channel on Cox to watch animated animals having all the fun with different gadgets. I can get all these and watch the drama unfold at my home too!
