Technology for pet owners who travel a lot

By on April 21, 2016 | Technology

Pets are the best thing that can happen to anyone. For people who abide by this statement wholeheartedly know where I’m speaking from. It hates to be in a position when you can’t look after them as much as you should be. Meeting your deadlines, having a social life, or for that matter travelling out of town wrecks havoc on your quality time being spent with your pet. Travellers have more to look out for since they’re going to be away for a considerable time. Certain devices that are app supported or will be supported in the near future help them achieve this long lost bond of friendship by making them virtually present with their pet.

Here’s our share of few devices that could help ease down the burden of a traveler a bit; as far as the pet goes:

The activity tracker

Using the app, you can begin to understand his health more than ever before.

Treat manager/ Console game


Wondering why your pet has been weirding out lately? Pets tend to develop separation anxiety or destructive behavior a home when they don’t see anyone around them. Such companion pets require an entertainment source where you can monitor your pet’s behavior and engage him in treats while you’re away. CleverPet does the job with quite a finesse. Using a clever pattern, your dog begins to learn how to use this device by pressing any buttons on the machine and being rewarded with a treat. After this learning period, CleverPet begins to light up certain buttons and only dishing up a treat when your dog’s paw presses the correct button. This surely is a clever way to stay in touch with your pet even while you’re away.
