Your furry friend deserves the latest and greatest. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of the top 10 must-have gadgets for pet owners. From tracking your furry friend with an AirTag dog collar case to getting them up and running on the doggy treadmill, read on to learn all about the latest in trendy pet tech.
1. AirTag Dog Collar Cases — An AirTag case isn’t just for your car keys or backpack. You can use an AirTag dog collar case to keep track of Fido no matter where he roams. Having this kind of AirTag collar case acts as insurance in the event that you’re walking your dog one day and they get distracted by a squirrel and go running off in the woods. All you need to do is check the location of the AirTag on your iPhone and you’ll be able to find your dog in no time.
2.Smart Ball — You may have a smartphone, but do you have a smart ball? A smart ball works well for both cats and dogs. Pets need mental stimulation or else they’ll be bored or can get the blues. The reality is that not every pet parent has the time or energy to play with their pet regularly, so it’s important to provide your pet with interactive toys. A smart ball is a ball with a camera inside that can be controlled from anywhere. That means even when you’re not home to play with your pet, you can play with them using the control of the ball from your office, during your commute or while you’re waiting in line at the grocery store.
3.Robot Vacuum — According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, most Americans spend 90 percent of their time indoors, where the concentrations of pollutants can be two to five times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. That means there’s pet dander, pet hair and everything in between that you’re constantly breathing in. Keep it clean and make the vacuuming chore easier by getting a robot vacuum.
4.Air Purifier — Besides having a vacuum to clean up all that pet hair, take the extra step by getting an air purifier, too. There are other allergens to consider besides the pet hair and dander floating around. Both you and your pet will be able to breathe easily with an air purifier at home.
5.Automatic Ball Launcher — If you love the smart ball, you’re going to love the automatic ball launcher. This machine actually does what it sounds like. It automatically launches balls for your pet to play with. That’ll keep them busy!
6.Wireless Fence — If you have a backyard but no fence, consider getting a wireless fence for your pet. Even if you have a fence, having a wireless fence as well acts as an additional layer to ensure that your pet never strays too far from home. It also helps prevent your eager pet from getting too friendly with a neighbor or package delivery person when they stop by unexpectedly.
7.Automatic Pet Feeder — Your pet loves treats. Get them the feeder that keeps on giving. With an automatic pet feeder, you can control it from the comfort of your phone without having to be there in person. If you have multiple pets, you may find that they’re often fighting over food bowls. There are some automatic pet feeders out there that only open when a specific pet comes to eat, thanks to an RFID tag that attaches to your pet’s collar. That way, Fido gets his food and Fluffy gets her food when they’re supposed to and don’t steal from each other.
8.Doggy Shower Stall — If you’ve ever tried to give a dog a bath, you know how messy it can get. Once their hair is all wet, they shake their body and, all of a sudden, water is torpedoing off their furry body. Provide your doggy with their very own shower stall.
9.Laser Pet Toy — There’s a reason why cats and dogs love lasers. To you, it’s just a shiny red dot. To them, it’s a reason to pounce and play. You can get a small handheld laser that fits in the palm of your hand and recharges with a USB port. Your pets will get in their playtime and healthy exercise when they’re chasing that laser around.
10.Dog Treadmill — Time for your dog to work on their fitness. You may not always have the time or energy to go for long walks with your dog. It may also be a dreary day and your dog probably doesn’t want to go out when it’s cold or rainy either. To make sure they’re keeping their activity levels up, get your pet a treadmill for them to walk on.
Form meets function when it comes to these 10 must-have gadgets. From the geeky pet owner who wants the latest gizmo to the pet parent who just wants to give the best of the best tech for their furry friends, there’s something for everyone on this gadget list.
