There are a lot of advantages to being a 21st century pet owner. The advances in veterinary care, a greater respect for pets in our society, not to mention the abundance of adorable Halloween costumes for pets come to mind, but technology aimed at our furry friends may top the list when it comes to usefulness and fun.

At Goldorado Animal Hospital we love anything that makes it easier to provide pets with the best possible care, which is why we’ve rounded up our favorite new tech for dog owners to share with our readers.

Best New Tech For Dog Owners

Keeping our canine companions happy, healthy, and by our sides is what every dog owner wants, and this incredible technology goes a long way towards helping us reach that goal.

Fi smart collar – Whether hunting or adventuring with your dog is your jam, or you simply have a four-legged escape artist on your hands, you’ll want to check out the Fi Smart Collar. Sophisticated algorithms and state of the art technology track your dog’s whereabouts and alert you via their app when things don’t seem right (such as the moment Fido has escaped your backyard).

Barkbath portable dog grooming system – If you trust a Bissel to clean your floor, you can trust it to clean your dog. This handy device brings the grooming salon into your home, and with minimal cleanup required.

PetSafe electronic smart door – This doggie door is the perfect solution for dog owners who want to be able to allow their dogs to come and go without worrying about unwanted wildlife visitors. Program the door to open on command for up to 5 household pets.

Gobone smart dog toy – The Gobone smart bone may just revolutionize the way your pup plays while you’re away. This “intelligent toy” adjusts its behavior based on your dog’s age, weight, breed, and playing style. Or turn it into something fun for you too by controlling the bone via an app. No matter what you choose, your dog will enjoy hours of exercise and important mental stimulation while you’re gone for the day.

Fitpet – Tracking your pet’s current health status and preventing disease has never been easier than with Fitpet. The power of holistic urinalysis and smartphone technology, combined with the latest in veterinary medicine come together to create an easy to use test kit, providing you with information on 10 different health parameters.
