Your dogs aren’t just pets, they’re family. You always want what’s best for them, and that includes the latest gadgets. To help you keep your dog fit, safe, clean and happy, check out the following ten gadgets…
Top 10 Gadgets to Keep Your Dogs Fit, Safe and Happy
10 – PetZen Dog Treadmill
Sure, it costs a lot of money. But for those times when it is too wet or cold to go outside, this might make a real difference to your pet’s health and fitness.
If you hate doing dog walks in the rain your pet will be able to sense it and won’t like it either. So why not keep them dry as well as yourself. It doesn’t cover them too much and is so lightweight they won’t notice they are wearing it.
Not only is this a great way to get super cute photos of your pets, but it is also a lot of fun for them. Both pet and owner will love messing around with it.
7 – Grooming kit
Dog hair gets everywhere — on the floor, on your couch, on your clothes … everywhere. Make your life a little less hairy with a vacuum grooming tool from Dyson. You basically attach a brush to the end of a vacuum so all of your dogs’ hair is sucked off and sticks to the brush instead of floating around your house before settling on all of your surfaces. Remove allergens and loose hair while keeping your pups comfortable and feeling pampered.
6 – Shower stall
If you’re sick of battling with your dog in the tub or in the yard with the hose, it’s time to find a better way. Hammacher Schlemmer has a Canine Shower Stall that encloses your pups so they can’t run away or slosh water all over the floor. It has 16 nozzles to get through your dogs’ thick coats and remove dead skin cells. They’ll be looking gorgeous in no time.
5 – GPS tracker
It’s scary to think that your dogs could get out of your yard or slip from your grasp while you’re out, but it does happen. Use the Tagg GPS tracker to know where your dog is at all times. You receive an alert if your dogs get out, and then you can find them by using your smartphone’s GPS. This app-enabled device is available on iOS and Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.
4 – Reflective collar
If you like to go out with your dogs at night, you need to equip them with reflective dog collars. This will make sure people see you when you’re running or walking. If your dog ever gets out of the yard at night, cars will be able to see them if they run across the road.
3 – Tennis ball launcher
Sometimes you get tired of throwing a slobbery ball over and over again. It takes a lot longer for your dogs to get worn out, so you need an automatic tennis ball launcher like GoDogGo. You control it with a remote and it launches tennis balls into your yard for your dog to chase.
2 – Activity tracker
If your dogs are getting a little chubby or you’re worried about their health, invest in an activity tracker like FitBark. With this tool you can set goals for your dogs, track their activity and sleep habits and catch early signs of medical issues.
1 – Running leash
Get outdoors and moving with your pups to stay healthy and active. Especially when they’re puppies, it can be hard to run with them because they want to smell every bush and spot of grass and say ‘hi’ to any passersby. Start training your pups right with running leashes. They’ll learn how to stay with you as you run and wait to do their business. Get Roadrunner’s hands-free running leash that slips around your waist, so you get in a great workout.
