Whistle/GPS for Pets

Posted in Pets by Tam Yue on May 29th, 2014

Whistle with GPSThe guys over at Whistle are upgrading their “fitbit for pets”. You can now know where your dog is at all times.

Whistle was originally designed as an activity monitor for pets. Basically you can see any spikes in activity during the day, or know if that walk you took Fido on was really beneficial for him. Now they are adding GPS to their device. Considering that over 10 million pets are lost each year this is a great idea.

The Whistle device attaches to your pets collar and can record location, rest and activity. So you will still know if your pet is getting the right amount of activity everyday. They claim that the Whistle/GPS is the smallest device of its kind on the market and also has the longest battery life. You will be able to use it for about a week before having to recharge.

The Canine Shower Stall makes bathing your dog easy

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2010

Most dogs don’t like to get bathed. They squirm around and try to get out of the water. Most of the time you end up as wet as the dog. The Canine Shower Stall can help. It has 16 water-jet nozzles and a showerhead that will wash and rinse your dog easily in the enclosed space.

The water jets will get through the thickest coats and the stall is made up of two integrated leashes and shower walls that reach 31″-high and a plastic roof to help keep water inside. The whole thing connects to a faucet and has a 2′-long drainpipe to get water out of the shower.

Power Generating Dog Leash

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on February 10th, 2010

You don’t normally think of dog leashes being gadgets, but this one is different. The Power-Generating Dog Leash may be man’s new best friend. It even features storage for your dogs poop bags and 3 LED lights for night time walking of your pooch and an emergency tone that is powered by the coil and recoil of the leash.

No batteries at all. Nothing on a price or release date but hopefully we will see it later this year. It’s as high-tech as dog leashes have gone so far.

Anti-Aging Oxygen Tank for dogs

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on January 11th, 2010

Look, we know how you feel about Fluffy. You love your little pooch enough to care for him/her and keep them around forever. If there were a way, short of cutting his head off and freezing it for future generations to re-animate him, you would make Fluffy immortal so he could live forever.

There may be a way. And as usual it is the Japanese who have shown us. If you have way too much money and little common sense, you can slow the doggy aging process. Just like these two chihuahuas inside an anti-aging oxygen therapy chamber at a dog salon in Japan.

Pet Care RobotGoing out of town and leaving Fido behind? Why not leave the Pet Care Robot behind so that your pet can live in terror the entire time? The Pet Care Robot is a concept thank god. It’s a Wi-Fi controlled robot that can let you peek in on your pet and make sure everything is fine, using a web interface.

The interesting part is that this robot allows you to play fetch long distance, using a remote controlled ball that you can steer around the house, even while talking to your pet through a built-in speaker.

Find out what your dog is up to with Snif Tag

Snif TagMost pet owners have wondered what their pet gets up to when they are out and about or at work. Before I had kids, my wife and I had a dog that would often come home colored pink. To this day we aren’t sure how he would get that color. It would have been interesting to monitor his activity.

If you are the type of pet owner that has to know what your animal does while you aren’t around, the Snif Tag will help you keep track of the dog. The little tag connects to the collar of your pet and lets the owner know if the animal has slept, walked, or played while they are away from home.

Four-Legged Wetsuits make pets hate you

Four-Legged Wetsuits make pets hate youCats don’t like water, but dogs aren’t too thrilled with it either. That’s why someone invented this wet suit for dogs. Small ones, like Chihuahas. It’s for when you want to force your dog in the water and make it look like an idiot at the same time. The outfit comes complete with flippers, goggles and a tank. I can easily see Paris Hilton dressing up Tinkerbell in this gear.

The doggy wet suit was featured as part of a Philippine fashion show and was worn by Mondex, the scuba dog. I don’t think they’ve actually tested it on dogs yet, but I could be wrong. If I know humans, one will be available very soon for the rich.

Spoil your pet with the Luxury Pet House

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2008

Spoil your pet with the Luxury Pet HouseIf you’re looking for new and better ways to spoil your pet, you might want to look into the Luxury Pet House. Sure, it looks like a toaster oven, but don’t worry, nobody is going to make toast out of your little furry friend. Apparently it’s more about keeping fluffy comfortable and happy in his/her own little environment. Paris Hilton would love this thing for her weird little animals.

The Luxury Pet House offers PC-managed controls, temperature and humidity limits, infrared radiation and carbon heating walls, antibiotic air, solenoid valve “medical treatment,” and carbon filter-based deodorizing. I’m guessing that the only thing it doesn’t have is an option for cryogenic freezing.

Programmable food dish will be your pet’s best friendNot only will this programmable pet dish look cooler then the one you are using, it will also feed your pet up to four meals at programmable times, all by itself. Perfect for the pet owner on the go. Anyone who has been late getting home and feeling guilty that their pet will eat late, can now rest easy.

It operates with a simple digital programmable timer that opens the food tray at selected times. You record your voice, so that when the dish opens, your pet hears you calling it and then chows down. Your pet will think that you spend half your time as a disembodied voice, but that’s ok.
