If you or someone you know would like to spoil the cuddliest creatures on the planet – our pets – there are several strong contenders worth checking out for gifts. From smart cameras that offer 24/7 surveillance on your mischievous pup to interactive toys, self-rolling balls, and water fountains for cats, here are five tech pet gifts that can make pet owners’ lives easier and their pets’ lives more entertaining.
If leaving your pet alone at home is difficult, especially when they have super-convincing puppy eyes or a meow trained to break hearts, a smart camera may be your best solution. PetCube’s Bites 2 Lite camera is a good option. It is equipped with a 1080p HD video, night vision, 160-degree lens, two-way audio, and a treat dispenser. You can throw treats from close-up or far away, making it a fun way to interact with your pet and reward positive behavior.
Price: Starting from $40
For those who want to teach their dogs to “speak” certain words, investing in recordable talking buttons is a great option. FluentPet, a system of foam hex tiles and recordable sound buttons, can teach your pet to communicate their wants and needs. There are three kits to choose from, depending on your pet’s skill level, with prices ranging from $40 to $235.
Cheerble is a self-rolling ball with three interactive modes to provide mental stimulation, physical exercise, and stress relief for bored pets. The toy stays on for a maximum of four hours and has a built-in collision sensor. It’s a great time-consuming activity for pets, but not meant to replace one-on-one attention.
The Fi Smart Dog Collar offers more than just peace of mind. It creates a geofence for your dog and uses algorithms to detect when your dog escapes, tracking their location and activity. It also offers a social feature that compares your dog’s activity to other users.
Petlibro’s pet water fountain is designed to entice cats with its quiet, flowing stream and filtered water. The filter should be replaced every two weeks to keep the water fresh, but it keeps the water clear of pet fur and saliva.
These tech pet gifts can bring joy and convenience to pet owners and their furry friends, making them a great choice for any pet lover.
