A pet can be a source of joy and affection. Having a pet can make life more enjoyable yet any pet owners will know that it’s important to ensure their pet remains smart, healthy, safe, and happy. Unlike with people, a pet can’t tell you how it feels, or what it wants.
In this article, I will only focus on the gadgets for dogs. But next week I’ll recommend cat lovers the must-haves to keep your cat happy.
Dogs, being social animals and man’s best friend, can often get unhappy if left alone for long hours, and this can affect their overall happiness. To pet smart and keep your dog healthy, I have picked some of the best designed gadgets for your furry friend.
1. Petnet Smart Feeder
Feeding your dog properly can be much harder than you may think. As your dog grows and ages, the amount of food that they need to eat often changes. Many pet owners are unaware of this and as a result, they can easily under or over feed their dog. What’s more, to keep your dog in good health, you need to ensure that they are getting the most important nutrients.
The Petnet Smart Feeder resolves these issues. It can connect to your smartphone, allowing you to perfectly feed your dog even if you are away from home.
Petnet Smart Feeder, $119.99
2. Gulpy Water Dispenser
All dogs need their exercise, however, if you’re walking and your dog needs water (something which can be a big issue on hot days) it can be difficult to find a source of water. You can take your dog’s bowl and a bottle of water but it’s not always easy to carry around these extra items.
The Gulpy Water dispenser works as both a water bottle and bowl. All you need to do is simply flip open the attached cup, squeeze the bottle of water, and let your dog drink.
It comes with a belt clip so you can carry it around with you hands free.
Gulpy Water Dispenser, $9.82
3. PetChatz Greet & Treat Videophone
Now, it might sound strange, a device which allows you to essentially Skype your dog. But the videophone also works as a mobile treat dispenser, and it can also give calming scents to your dog. Because of this, you can both check up on your dog, and treat it, even if you are very far away.
This is one of the pricier gadgets on the list, but if you are looking for easy ways to check on your dog, and give yourself peace of mind, it’s perfect.

4. PetFusion Ultimate Pet Bed with Solid Memory Foam
As is the case with people, it is very important for your dog to get a good night’s sleep. A lot of dog beds available tend to be badly designed. This can be an issue as badly designed beds can cause problems with your dog’s muscles and joints.
The PetFusion bed is designed with this in mind. It has a memory foam base which adapts and forms around your dog’s shape, ensuring fantastic comfort and support for your dog.

This ensures that your dog is clean all over. Inside the shower kit, the water and soap mixes instantly so you can be sure that your dog is getting a total and deep clean.

7. iFetch Too Interactive Ball Launcher
Playing fetch with your dog can be great fun, but it is easy to get tired of it before your dog, or maybe you find you are, for some reason incapable of throwing the ball effectively. The iFetch Too Interactive Ball Launcher solves all of these problems, allowing your dog to play fetch to its heart’s content.

8. EzyDog Road Runner Leash
The EzyDog Road Runner Leash revolutionizes the design of dog leashes. Conventional dog leashes can harm your dog’s throat and neck. After all, many leashes and collars force you to lead your dog by its neck. The Road Runner Leash is designed with anti shock technology, meaning any sock, strain, or pull is massively absorbed by the leash, limiting any potential harm caused by the leash.
It can be used hands free so you can easily use it while running and jogging with your dog at your side. The length of it is easily adjustable so you can use it in a way that suits you both.
EzyDog Road Runner Leash, $34.99

10. K&H Manufacturing Quilted Cargo Cover
It is commonplace to put your dog in the trunk of your car or SUV if you are going for a drive with them. But this can be uncomfortable for them. And if your dog is dirty, it’s liable to make other things in the trunk dirty too.
The K&H Quilted Cargo Cover both keeps your trunk clean, and your dog comfortable and protected in your car or SUV. There are pockets built in, allowing you to carry extra toys or brushes with you, no matter where you go.

11. Whistle 3 GPS Pet Tracker
If your dog ever goes missing, it can be an extremely traumatic experience. Even if they return, you often have no way of finding out where they went. Some dogs more than others like escaping, so you can never be sure.
With the Whistle 3 GPS Tracker you’ll be able to keep track of your pet, no matter where they are. You can establish a “safe zone” and will get a message if your dog ever leaves its boundaries. You’ll be able to trace all their movements for twenty four hours.
