In this day and age, with all of the high-tech products available that make our everyday lives easier, is it no wonder that there are also plenty of high-tech gadgets available for animal lovers and their pets? Let’s take a look at some of the most popular innovations that you can use in many ways to keep connected to your favorite companion no matter where you are.


ICpooch Is A Great Invention That Enables You To Give Treats Anytime Day Or Night

For most of us, our work day is long and involves plenty of stress and distractions to keep us running from place to place putting out proverbial fires. Meanwhile, our dogs and cats are waiting at home anticipating our return. But after a long day at work, many of us stop by at the local bar to socialize, then grab dinner, and finally arrive home late in the evening, exhausted.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could periodically throughout the day pick up your smartphone and give your dog a call for a quick chat? That is exactly what an iCPooch can do for you. It looks like an oversized Pez dispenser with a tablet computer or iPhone attached that enables you to speak directly to your dog while seeing them live on camera.

Since it is a two-way connection, not only can you see your dog, but your dog can see you and talk back if he so desires. At any time during the conversation, you can easily press a button and drop some kind of treat out of the machine for your dog to eat. The machine can handle several different sizes of biscuit treats or has small bowls able to hold kibble treats as well.

This particular gadget needs the buyer to supply their own tablet or smartphone to fit into the handy holder but contains a Wi-Fi receiver and software that can make using it with any kind of desktop, laptop, or smartphone on your end a breeze. You can also allow several other people, such as friends and family, to access the account, talk to your dog and feed them treats throughout the day as well.


If You’d Rather Just Talk To Your Pet, Then A PetCube Might Be Better For You

If you don’t desire to give your pet treats periodically through the day, then a PetCube might be more your style. These are attractive four-inch square cubes with a nice, sturdy aluminum finish that have their own small screen which enables you to check with your pet anytime during the day.

One interesting innovation that the PetCube uses is an integrated laser pointer that you can control using your computer or smartphone in order to play with your cat or dog. This is an excellent way to give your pet a little exercise and have some fun at the same time. There is also a feature that allows you to put your account online and allow other people to play with your cat and its laser throughout the day.


The GoDogGo Fetch Machine Is Great For The Active Dog That Needs More Exercise

Every dog seems like it has unlimited amounts of energy at just about the same time you’re out, that’s a time to use a high-tech toy called the GoDoGo Fetch Machine, which can launch tons of balls for your dog to chase down and retrieve while you sit and relax.

For this dog toy to work perfectly, it’s best that you spend some time with your dog in order to teach it how to retrieve the balls and put them back into the hopper so they can be re-launched over and over again for hours. Even if that’s not possible for your dog, as long as they bring the balls back near the machine, you’ll have no problem getting up and reloading it every 15 minutes or so.

The machine can be set for different interval settings from about five seconds to 15 seconds between ball launches and also has several distance settings that can be changed depending on the size of your play area. Since the machine works on both AC power or batteries you can use it in the home, in the yard or take it to the local park as well.

The machine can handle many different sizes of balls, tennis balls, racket balls and many others, however, from reading the online reviews, one of the best ways to proceed is to visit your local tennis club and buy a 5 gallon bucket of their used tennis balls for mere pennies on the dollar. Most of these balls have lost their ability to bounce correctly on the court, but work absolutely perfectly in the GoDogGo Machine.

Whether you’re having trouble keeping your dog occupied during the day, or are worried about anxiety problems while you’re away, there are new technology gadgets available that enable you to interact with your pooch several times a day. You can either chat, use laser pointers, or give them treats. And then on the weekends, you can take them to the park and launch tennis balls for hours on end while you sit on the park bench and relax.
