Pet technology is on the rise with new smart devices and apps being launched every day, but exactly what does all this pet technology add when it comes to engaging with your pet and making everyone’s lives a little easier?
The pet technology available today really is astonishing – in fact, it was pretty tough to whittle it down to just three. Never one to shy away from a challenge though, here is our guide to pet technology and the top 3 smart devices for pets.
We couldn’t compile any list of smart pet technology devices without including the Furbo Dog Camera. It’s been around for a while now and is the ultimate in keeping an eye on your pets when you’re not at home, allowing you to interact with your dog using video and your voice to soothe and calm them – oh and it also dispenses treats for them too.
Technically another camera, but this one has a few different models, with some pretty special features built in, making it unique and definitely worth a mention. The first thing is VetChat. This connects you with a vet directly through the app, so if you do spot your cat, dog or other pet behaving oddly, you can check it out with a vet straight away.
The Petcube Play 2 also has an interactive laser toy built into the unit, which is hours of fun. Great for cats and dogs, this could keep your pet active and distracted while you are out and about, rather than lounging in their bed all day, waiting for you to come home.
As pet owners, we know how important it is that our pets have access to clean, fresh water at all times. This piece of pet technology takes that to another level, with filters to clean out potentially harmful contaminants in the water.
It has a light to remind you to fill it and a light to let you know when the filter needs changing. If tear and food stains are a problem for your white pet, filtered water could be just the solution you are looking for. Plus, it’s very cool.
There were so many other smart pet technology devices which could have made it into our top three – which is your favourite?
