It’s an exciting time for all of us dog lovers. There are so many new hi-tech dog products on the market – it’s really awesome.
We are going to try to review as many of these as possible from time to time, although we doubt we can keep pace with the onslaught of new products hitting the shelves.
One category that’s really interesting is that of pet cameras. The idea is that when owners are away, they miss their pets – duh! Sometimes owners are just curious about what their pets do when they are alone at home. At other times, they may be worried for some reason, like when their pets are sick or something. In any case, the concept of pet cameras allows the owners to call their pet so that they can can see their pet and make sure that he or she is doing well. In many of these, it is possible to engage the dogs in some way, with treats or lasers, to say nothing of the owner’s voice, so that the dog responds to and comes towards the device. Here is a nice article comparing the best dog cameras on the market.
The other big area being inundated with pet products is, believe it or not, the fitness market. People have become increasingly health aware, and now this awareness is moving on to pets as well. People want to make sure that, in addition to themselves and their human family members, their dogs are also as healthy as possible. So many devices and apps have emerged to address this need. We have written a more detailed review, about our personal favorite – the Fitbark.
