Best Pet-Tech Dog Gadgets

According to statistics from the National Pet Owners Survey 2019-2020, 63.4 percent of U.S. households own a dog. The actual total U.S. pet industry expenditure for 2019 was $95.7 billion. That’s mind-boggling!

All this money being spent on our precious fur-friends hasn’t gone unnoticed, and tech companies have been attracted to making innovative products to make yours and your pet’s lives easier.

Many organizations are pursuing innovations in pet technology, and leading brands like Purina, Hills, and Mars’ Petcare have all recently been acquiring pet tech start-ups in an effort to provide the best pet accessories.

Additionally, the veterinary profession embraces pet-tech advances in their medical practices and recommends ways that pet owners can care for their pets better.

The pet tech trend is partially driven by the need to humanize our pets. You could say that pet-tech is any technology that makes pet ownership more efficient, easier, and even more fun.

We’ve put together a shortlist of fun gadgets that your dog(s) will thank you for.

What’s at the top of every dog’s wish list? Food. We’re sure that if dogs could go into the kitchen and fix their own dinner, they would…several times a day.

Automatic pet feeders have advanced from just a dry food dispenser with a timer. Now they are more complex and using microchips, and they can feed particular pets when they approach the dish.

Depending on how much you want to spend, you can get a built-in remote control, HD camera, video, and voice recording. Some smartphone apps can also track food consumption and deliver food automatically when they detect low stock.

Second on your dog’s wish list is probably something related to sleeping. Smart pet beds are all about tracking sleep and providing a relaxing space to chill in.

Dog beds can now be temperature controlled for your pet’s comfort and some work with other pedometer smart-tech, which cool down the bed if your dog has had an active day or a hot walk. You can also track changes in your dog’s weight and behavior, indicating early signs of poor health.

Doggie playtime is a great way to stay fit and active, physically, and mentally. When you can’t be home to provide stimulation for your dog, there are now many gadgets to keep them entertained.

These days AI-enabled dog toys are advanced and can be personalized for specific needs or tailored for certain behaviors. They can help with separation anxiety and even educate your pup.

You can play fetch with your dog from anywhere in the world with a smart ball. Pet tracking systems allow you to interact remotely, and you can take photos and talk and listen to your dog.

Bone-shaped toys that ‘run around’ on wheels and hide dog treats can operate on AI freestyle mode, so you don’t even have to control them from afar. You can set playtimes on a schedule to suit your dog’s needs, and the AI will monitor the type of mood your dog is in.

Pet cameras are becoming more popular for pet parents who have to work away from home and want to keep an eye on their pets.

Lunchtime breaks are much more fun when you can interact with your dog, especially after a tough morning at work. As well as providing a view into the home, two-way communication, motion alerts, toys, and treat dispensers can all be included.

We can expect to see more opportunities to improve the owner-pet relationship and pet’s quality of life as pet-tech gets more investment.
