Tonight I want to share with you some of the technology that is out there for your pets. Unfortunately most of the gadgets that I came across were more geared towards owners of dogs and cats, but some of these items could easily be used with other more exotic pets.
Then of course there is Tagg the pet tracking device. This sends you e-mails and texts about where you dog is at all times and if it has traveled out of the designated area that you can specify, this can be great if your pet gets lost as it is a GPS enabled device. It will cost you about 100 and then the service is about $8 a month after the trial period has ended. For that price it also comes with proactive health monitoring services, such as the ability to attack the short term and long term activity levels of your dog. Due to it's size it is only intended for dogs over 10 pounds. The device easily attaches to your dog's collar.
COFFEE TABLE CAT HAMMOCK
Now this is an awesome thing! I want one for myself. It is a spectacular hammock that hangs under a stylish coffee table. My biggest complain is the outrageous price tag at $2,400. This must be one of those things for rich old cat ladies :)
BOWLINGUAL & MEOWLINGUAL
In case you couldn't tell by the title, these devices were created to help translate your animals speech so that you can better understand them. The Bowlingual is an actual device which runs for about $222, whereas the meowlingual is currently just an app that you can get on your phone. The bowlingual is advertised as being able to work with over 50 dog breeds and 6 mix breeds. IT can store up translations for up to 30 days. However the major downside is that it was created in Japan and currently only translates into Japanese so then you would need to translate the Japanese. The meowlingual app is a little more helpful in that it translates into English.
