It’s a pretty great time to be a pet! With all of the newest smart products out there, it was only a matter of time before pet products became upgraded. With the technology of today, you can easily find amazing smart products that will help your pet in many different ways.
Plus, companies are continually coming up with new and improved ideas for pet inventions that will make your pet smart, healthy, and happy. Let’s take a look at some of the best smart innovations available for pet owners today!
- Smart Dog Harnesses
There is always plenty to look at when you and your dog are out for a walk, so it’s often hard to keep them from pulling and tugging to get to what they want. However, this can be tiring and dangerous for you both. The canine experts of The Pampered Pup suggested that a smart dog harness will be an easy and effective way to train your dog not to pull when you are out for a walk or jog. The harness goes around the chest of your dog instead of just around their throat. You’ll now have a bigger area to control, making it much easier to keep your dog in check as you walk. Plus, harnesses are designed to provide maximum comfort for your dog while you’re out and about! Keep your dog safe when you use a smart harness to keep them near.
- Automatic Ball Launchers
Your dog needs to enjoy physical activity every day. Yet we all know that we often run out of energy long before our pet does! With the invention of the automatic ball launcher, you no longer have to down an energy drink to keep up with your energetic pup. An automatic ball launcher does all the work for you, throwing tennis balls out for your pet to chase after. Best of all, many brands offer different options for dogs of every size and energy level. Some can launch smaller tennis balls up to 20 to 30 feet away for smaller dogs while others shoot larger balls further away for those bigger, energetic dogs. It’s a perfect invention that can even be used indoors, as long as you have a big enough area! Your dog will never get tired of chasing the ball while your arms will get the break they so deserve.
- Smart Dog House
Business owners are starting to see the demand for a safe place for owners to keep their dogs when they are shopping in their stores or grabbing a cup of coffee during a meeting. Many are starting to use a smart dog house in front of their place of business to give dog owners a place to safely and humanely keep their dog when they can’t go into a business. Instead of keeping your pup in a car or tying them up on a pole, download an app to find a dog house space in whatever business district you are in. The app locates the dog house for you, allowing you to reserve a time and spot. When you get there, use your personal membership card to open the door for your pet. Don’t worry-only your card will access the door! Your dog now has a safe, temperature-controlled area to rest in while you take care of your business. The dog house is connected to the internet, allowing you to easily keep a watchful eye on your pup from afar. It’s a great way to keep your pet with you during the day when you need to be out and about!
- Self-Cleaning Litter Boxes
One of the worst parts of owning a cat is having to clean the litter box day after day. In fact, pregnant women should stay away from cat feces to avoid the Toxoplasma parasite that can cause infection and other serious birth complications. That’s why pet companies are continually developing and tweaking self-cleaning litter boxes that do pretty much all of the work for you! After the cat leaves the self-cleaning litter box, the system sifts through the litter and removes the waste into a separate container. Your cat will have fresh litter every time they have to go, and you won’t have to deal with the mess as much as you are used to! Newer models allow you to download an app to keep track of certain issues, such as the level of waste in the drawer, how many times your cat uses the device a day, and even insights into their health. It’s a great way to save time and energy when you own a cat, especially if you have more than one in your home.
- Microchip Pet Door
If your pet has a pet door to allow them in and out of your home as they please, the newest smart invention provides them an even safer alternative to outdoor time. It only works if your pet has a microchip, so make sure they have one before making this purchase! The smart microchip pet door allows your pet to go outside whenever they need to. When they want to come back in, the door detects their chip before allowing them access to the inside of the house. This allows your pet to come in without attracting other unwanted animals at the same time! It’s perfect for more rural areas that have an abundance of animals that may try to get in when no one is looking, such as opossums, rabbits, coyotes, and other stray animals. Many models also allow you to put the door on a timer. This way, your pet isn’t running outside in the middle of the night when you are sleeping. It’s a great way to keep your amazing pet safe at all times!
