SMART TECHNOLOGY ENTERTAINS YOUR DOG

Smart Play

Smart home security systems are becoming increasingly popular as a way to interact with our pets when they are left at home alone. It is now possible to receive live HD video feeds on a smartphone to see whether your dog is bored or listless. The problem is that from a distance you cannot play with your pet. Smart technology innovations are helping to solve that problem.

iFETCH

If your dog likes to play fetch, then iFetch may be the perfect toy. It launches 1.5” miniature tennis balls to distances of either 10, 20 or 30 feet. It can be used indoors or out and works either when plugged into an electrical socket or with rechargeable batteries. There is a bigger version called the iFetch Too that launches regular sized tennis balls ideal for medium to large dogs. The ball is dropped at one end of the unit and launched from the other.   iFetch offers training videos on how to teach your dog to operate the device safely even when you’re not around. The toy won the Best in Show award at Superzoo 2013 and was a Second Place Winner at Global Pet Expo 2014. The iFetch is priced at $115 and comes with 3 miniature tennis balls. An extra set of 3 balls costs $12.50.
