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.

SALES TIP: When loaded with Whello cartridges that snap directly into the feeder, it’s like a Keurig for dogs!

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
Techmira

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

SALES TIP: This toothbrush will save customers from higher vet bills down the road.
