While it’s true that your dog can’t necessarily actively use gadgets the same way we do, that doesn’t mean tech can’t be useful. Most dog gadgets are aimed at making life easier for the dog owner, which in turn makes life more pleasant (and hopefully a lot longer!) for their dog. Lucy and Holly “talked” with some of their furpals and below are some of their picks for the best dog gadgets for feeding, cleaning, playtime and safety.
The following six tech products are some interesting keepers, worthy of buying and using.
Link AKC Smart Collar
The Link AKC Smart Collar is great for GPS tracking of your dog at all times. You won’t have to worry whether your pooch is swimming (yes, it’s waterproof!), hunting, shepherding, searching, roaming the woods or just out with the trainer or walker―you can rest easy when you always know your dog’s location. This smart collar not only tracks your dog’s whereabouts and monitors his or her activities, but it looks smart too.
SureFlap Microchip Pet Door
The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door is made for the security-minded tech lover who is also a small dog (or cat!) parent. The door uses RFID technology to allow access only to your designated pets. It will not allow entry by stray animals or wild critters. The door operates by reading your pet’s microchip implant or RFID collar tag if your pet has not been chipped.
