9 High-Tech Products for the Dogs (Or Cats)

Innovative products aim to improve lives of cats, dogs and their caregivers.




IN “FOUR PET INDUSTRY TRENDS to watch in 2018 and beyond,” market research firm Packaged Facts points to technology playing a bigger role in the development of new products. Especially products with goals of improving health, wellness and safety for our furry companions, and also products that help busy pet parents connect with and take better care of their animals. Fire up the smartphones, as many of these have companion apps that allow the user to connect and control remotely, allowing modern pet parents the ability to be present even when they aren’t physically at home.

Smarter Feeders

The next best thing to being there to scoop out the food is a “smart feeder” that can do it for you. The benefits of these feeders are many: enabling portion control, to help combat obesity and help keep those early rising dogs and cats satiated, as well as being able to remotely serve up dinner when you’re running late from the office.

KEY FEATURES: Built-in replenishment system that detects low food levels. Can be programmed to reorder and remote controlled via smartphone.
SALES TIP: When loaded with Whello cartridges that snap directly into the feeder, it’s like a Keurig for dogs!, (833) 438-9249



Small Pet Feeder

KEY FEATURES: Holds up to 60 ounces of kibble. Owners can schedule feedings up to 12 times a day, as well as record voice messages calling out to “come and get it.”

SALES TIP: Cat owners can rely on it during overnight trips, for when a sitter isn’t available.




KEY FEATURES: Smartphone controlled, customizable meal times and portion sizes, low-food warnings, food delivery updates and more.

SALES TIP: Compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Nest Cam, this will follow commands better than Fido., (310) 497-6865


Smarter Cat Parents

“Work smarter, not harder,” as the saying goes. These three products are geared toward making cat parents’ lives a little easier, and enabling them to be able to relax and enjoy time with their feline friends. We selected a solution for neutralizing litter box stink, the ultimate remote mouse toy and an on-demand water fountain.

Smarter Dog Parents

Peace of mind, improving health and safety are the themes of these three products for dogs and their human caretakers. We also kept in mind a range of price points, because tech products shouldn’t necessarily mean expensive. Take a look at a low-cost speaker with some big selling points, an ultrasonic toothbrush and state-of-the-art tracker.

Mira-Pet Ultrasound Toothbrush

KEY FEATURES: A three-sided brush head, paired with ultrasound, produces a deep clean with one swipe.
