The changes in technology have not just made a difference in the teenager’s life today. There are now dozens of apps, gadgets and gizmos that make taking out the dog and remembering to feed the cat much easier than it used to be.
Tagg Pet Tracker – a pet tracker is like a GPS on his collar, in the event he ever gets lost. You set boundaries and if your pet oversteps them, a text message is sent to your phone letting you know. It also tracks his exercise habits so that you can know if your pooch is staying in shape.
The Woofer – For your graduation party, equip your dog with one of these vests. With speakers sewn into the sides, and an MP3 player, your dog becomes the walking sound system.
Puppy Tweets – Using a sensor on the collar, your dog’s activities are tracked while you are not home, and will send you updates via Twitter. Not real sure how the computer knows what is going on, but at least it’s cute to get tweeted by your pet.
K9 Wireless Dog Fence – This device also uses a sensor on the collar to keep dogs from wandering off. Wireless pet containment systems act like a fence around the yard, albeit an invisible one. If Fido gets too close to the perimeter of the wireless fence, he gets a small zap to the neck.
Go-Go Dog Pals – Doggies get lonely too, and if your parents won’t let you have a friend for your pet, you can buy one. This remote controlled “animal” roams around at your command and interacts with your dog.
GoDogGo Remote Fetch Machine – If your arm wears out throwing endless games of fetch, this device can take over for you. By launching balls up to 40 feet, you get to do your homework, while your dog gets his exercise.
Dart Automatic Laser Toy – For you cat lovers, this keeps them entertained in a never ending game of chase. The machine rotates a laser around, enticing your cat to try and pounce.
MagneClip – If mom making you walk the dog is a real pain, check out the MagneClip. Instead of relying on hooks, the leash is attached to the collar using a magnet. Gentle, it does still hold a great deal of weight, and will make getting your dog ready for his walk much easier.
Wild Pet’s Eye View Camera – Have you ever wondered what your world looks like to your dog? With a camera around his neck the mystery is solved. Watch as he sniffs out dirty socks and finds that chocolate bar you’ve been saving for a special occasion.
Owning a pet is a lot more fun now than it used to be. Introduce your dog or cat into this brave new world and watch them enjoy it just as much as you do.
