Tech innovations are transforming the way we live – this holds true for not only us humans, but for our furry companions as well. These days, being a pet parent can be more enjoyable than ever before, largely due to the gadgets that allow us to interact more deeply with our furkids. In this article, we take a look at some of the most popular tech gadgets to that add spark to your dog’s life.
Inupathy Dog Wearable
Ever gazed at your dog and wondered what lies behind those adorable eyes? Inupathy, the world’s first dogs’ mental visualizer, seeks to enlighten dog owners to the inner workings of their furry companion’s mind.
This ingenious device is wrapped around the front of your dog and worn similar to a harness. It then detects your dog’s heart rate patterns and uses this data to identify how your dog is feeling. To communicate these feelings to dog owners, the LED display changes color according to your dog’s emotional state. No more playing guessing games if that tail wagging means happy, relaxed or interested – just look at the LED on the harness.
It weighs only 80 grams, is adjustable and made of a breathable material, so rest assured, your dog would not feel uncomfortable while wearing the Inupathy. Like all quality tech wearables, Inupathy syncs to an app. Apart from helping you understand your dog better, Inupathy could be useful for long term monitoring of your dog’s mental health. It shows you common trends in your dog’s moods as well as comparisons with data from other dogs.
Petcube Bites Smart Pet Cam
Does your pup bark up a storm or exhibit other anxious behaviors when you are not home? Separation anxiety could be the problem. One way to tackle this is by keeping them occupied when they are home alone. The Petcube Bites Smart Pet Cam is perfect for that.
This little device is a Wi-Fi pet camera that allows you to keep an eye on your dog while dispensing treats remotely. With its HD 1080p video, night vision and 2-Way audio, this pet cam makes you feel as though you are in the same room as your dog, even if you are on vacation halfway across the world.
The coolest tech feature on this pet cam is the treat dispenser. By connecting to your smart phone, the app enables you to remotely dispense treats to your dog. To add a fun agility challenge, you can even fling treats across varying distances, up to 6 feet.
On that note, use only appropriate treats such as low calorie dog treats. Human foods like blueberries can be a healthy treat, but be careful to avoid certain fruits such as grapes as these can trigger kidney failure in dogs.
For a happy and healthy dog, getting enough physical activity is a must. With the Covid-19 pandemic, it can be challenging to take your dog outside for walks. Here are some tips to keep your dog active during lockdown. An innovative way to sneak in some exercise at home is the GoBone.
The world’s first SmartBone, this is essentially a bone-shaped gizmo that automatically moves around the floor, inspiring your dog to get moving and chase after it. Equipped with intelligent software, the GoBone can even personalize play to your specific dog, providing instant canine entertainment without you having to lift a finger.
For more interactivity, connect the GoBone to your smartphone via its Bluetooth Smart system to use it in manual mode. Relax on the couch, use your phone to send the GoBone all around your house and let your dog enjoy an exciting game of chase. To motivate your dog, the GoBone has a treat compartment.
This automatic dog toy provides a whole host of benefits for your pup. Not only does it get your dog moving, chewing on a bone is amazing for your dog’s dental health. Chewing is a natural instinct and being able to indulge in this behavior safely goes a long way towards reducing destructive behaviors. Simulated bones such as the GoBone let your dog enjoy a good chew session while avoiding all the dangerous risks of real bones.
The best kind of tech is created with the purpose of improving our lives. The pet tech industry is growing exponentially and hopefully, there will be even more gadgets made for pet owners to connect with their beloved dogs.
