Since we’ve digitalized our lives, why shouldn’t our pets be able to get in on the fun too? These five fun pet gadgets will help you bond with your pet, and make them look like the coolest pooch around.

This gadget is especially handy for those whose dogs and cats are runners. The next time they slip out the front door, you won’t have to be filled with frantic paranoia as you search for them. The Tagg tracker functions like a GPS that taps into your smartphone’s maps app. You can also program the tracker to send you email and text notifications, so you can always have your mind at ease when you’re on vacation, and have to leave your beloved furry friend behind.
It’s like a batting cage for dogs. This fun device will spout out tennis balls so long as your pup knows how to drop them back in. This can be a great way to keep their minds active while you’re away, and give them a healthy dose of exercise. It also works great for those nights you just want to curl up on the couch, but your pup is insisting on a game of fetch.
How many times have you taken your pets out only to find yourself tangled up in a heap of fur and nylon? Never again, with this dual leash that allows your pups to roam happy and free up to 10 feet. It can support dogs up to 35 pounds, and even has color coded brakes on the leashes so you can easily tell which dog to stop.
We love to track our steps per day, so it only makes sense to do the same with our pets. Become the cutest pair of workout buddies the world has ever seen with the FitBark tracker. This device will tell you how active your pet has been that day, when they last ate, and whether or not they’ve been getting enough exercise. FitBark is all about helping dogs and humans get healthy together one paw at a time.
The Pet Cube
We’ve saved the best for last. It’s a bit of a splurge at $119, but the Wi-Fi Pet Cube camera is the ultimate gadget for those who want to be with their furry friend at all times. This nifty device lets you interact with your pets even when you’re away from home and even play games via a remote activated laser pointer. You can offer some soothing words, promise some belly scratches when you get home, or chastise them from the office when they’re digging through the kitchen trash – again.
When your browsing for pet tech, keep in mind what you could use the most. If your pet is ill or a senior, a Wi-Fi camera like the Pet Cube would be a great way to put your mind at ease, and even monitor them to make any necessary reports back to your Sudbury vet clinic. Electric toys are a great way to ramp up the energy during playtime, especially when you’re away, but the fitness pet gadgets are an even better way to stay in shape and spend some one-on-one time with your favorite four-legged friends. At the end of the day, assess your current pet needs and choose the gadget that will bring you both happiness and strengthen your bond.
