High Tech pet products are everywhere
It's a great time to be a pet. A wave of new high-tech pet products and innovations have just hit the market. And there are many more in development.
So, if you are a pet owner, entrepreneur or investor - now is the perfect time to get up to speed on the hottest pet tech devices.
Mechanical Pet Tech Products:
Mechanical pet tech devices range from simple single part products to complex ball launchers, self-cleaning litter boxes and dog houses with air conditioning!
Keeping your dog active is critical for their health and your peace of mind. But playing fetch for hours on end can be taxing on your time and arm muscles! iFetch solved this problem with an automatic ball launcher that has won multiple pet tech product awards.
Transporting a pet on a two-wheel vehicle like a bicycle, motorcycle or scooter has always been a challenge. But Pet on Wheels developed a simple carrier system that blew past a Kickstarter goal and hit the market in 2018, helping pet owners travel with their favorite fur balls.
Traditional fences are no match for a curious cat. The classic jump-grab-climb technique allows cats to scale even the tallest fences - until now. The Oscillot hardware system has two components the Paddle and the Dual Knuckle Post kit - that work together to prevent cats from escaping backyards.
Running with your dog is fun, but running errands with your dog can be a challenge. Do you bring them into the store? Leave them tied up outside? Dog Parker has developed another option - a climate controlled, safety dog house so you can shop worry free.
Scooping cat litter has always been a bother for pet owners. Luckily Litter Robot has developed a robust automatic cat litter box that sifts through cat litter after each use and deposits litter into a waste drawer, making it the industry-leader in digital cat litter boxes.
Adding a traditional pet door may allow some unwanted guests to come into your house. The SureFlap prevents this by only opening the door when the device reads your pet's microchip. This simple solution is selling well for all types of pet owners across the globe.
Wearble Pet Products:
Wearable pet products have evolved a lot in the past several years from simple harnesses to complex electronic hardware devices that monitor, track and report every pet's move. These devices include smart leashes, Fitbit type trackers and custom medical devices to help aging dogs.
Need more motivation to get your dog out walking? Try Wonderwoof - a social network, activity tracking dog wearable that is like a combination of Fitback and 4Square for your dog. Log walks, earn badges and see other dogs near you to meet up for a play date
Have you ever tried to duck tape a GoPro to your dog? Trust us it does not work well. But Go Pro saw our struggle and invented the Go Pro Fetch. A wearable harness that straps to your dog to let you record video footage through the eyes of your pet! Waterproof too.
The classic pet leash has gotten smarter! The Go-Smart is a Bluetooth enabled leash packed with features any dog lover will enjoy. These include LED light ring for night visibility, walking timers and an app to track activity times for both you and your pet.
Dozens of GPS trackers hit the market over the past several years, but Get Finster is one that has stood the test of time and become a market leader. Why? Due to the zero monthly costs, a great app user-interface, waterproof design, and a rechargeable long-lasting batteries.
One of the most issues that impact the mobility of dogs is hip dysplasia. The hipster harness is a device that helps dogs stabilize and strengthen their hip muscles and avoid further injury. Launched in 2015, the device has become popular with veterinaries and pet owners alike.
Connected Pet Products:
Connected Pet Tech is one of the hottest trends in the pet industry right now. Dozens of new devices hit the market in 2018, and many more are in development. If you have a pet tech idea, now is the perfect time to get it off the ground.
Like humans, pet's minds and body's must be pushed and exercised to grow. When owners are home this happens for pets, but when they are away it doesn't - until now. Pet Clever's unique product provides a great way for humans to interact with pets remotely.
PetChatz is the swiss army knife of remote pet monitoring. It provides a suite of features including HD Camera, treat release, LCD display, motion detector - and even the ability for pet to call you! This may be why PetChatz has risen to the top of successful selling connected pet tech hardware devices.
Monitoring your cats weight, eating and litter box habits are critical for maintaining their health. And leaving it up to chance can lead to trouble down the road. That’s why Tailio - a simple connected monitoring system that sits under a litter box, has been well received by both cat owners and veterinarians.
Dogs are smart, but they need stimulation to continue to learn and stay happy. PupPod is a multi-level puzzle that stimulates dogs curiosity and directs a dogs energy through a series of app-enabled games and of course treats! Both vets and dog owners have touted the benefits of PupPod as a wonderful tool to interact with dogs of all ages, shapes and sizes.
Petcube does one thing really, really good - that’s pet video. And a $500K+ Kickstarter campaign and $14M in seed funding have others thinking this too. The Petcube hardware device and app work together so pet owners can have a seamless rich video experience with their pet from anywhere in the world.
An all-in-one camera and connected play ball, PlayDate blew past a crowdfunding goal by 598%, raising $831K - and they didn't stop there. Since the successful campaign in 2016, PlayDate has gone on to become one of the top-selling connected pet tech toy devices on the market today.
