In today’s age, modern tech sure seems like a blessing. When tech is helping humans in almost every aspect of life, why not put it to use to get some benefits for pet-parents. Yes, there are multiple products available in the market that can assist parents with different kinds of pets including dogs, cats, and birds. Here is a list of 6 such versatile devices that can make life easier:

Talking Toys for Birds

Some bird owners would love teaching their feathered companions to speak but may not find sufficient time in their schedules. Well, now you can purchase the talking gadgets to do the job. These toys have buttons which your bird can press using its beak. When the buttons are activated, they play various phrases that your bird will learn to mimic in no time. Install the toy in your birdie’s medium to large-sized cages and let it do the magic.

Pet Cams

We use baby monitors to keep an eye on our little ones, why not apply the same technology for pets. Some brands provide cameras that allow you to interact with your dog using your smartphones. These can be installed in different places in the house to keep an eye on your pup’s activities and are beneficial for pets with separation anxiety.

Cordless Robot Vacuums

Cleaning a house with multiple pets is a challenge. If you have birds, you will find dander, seeds, and moulted feathers around your home. For households with dogs and cats, pet hair is a significant issue that is difficult to clean. Thankfully now we have cordless robot vacuums. These small devices with powerful suctions can efficiently do all the cleaning while you get to spend quality time with your pets.

Automatic Feeders

With our busy schedules, pet parents can't always be present at home to feed their animals. Leaving food in their bowls isn’t a viable option as your cat or dog may overeat. Well, consider investing in an automatic feeder. These can be programmed to dispense food in specified quantities and at fixed time intervals.

Self-Warming Pet Beds

Cleaning pet hair off the furniture is another time-consuming task but what can be done when pets don’t like their beds? The self-warming bed is an excellent choice as it can give your cat or dog the warmth they require by reflecting the heat from their bodies. It is comfortable and worth an investment.

Fitness Tracker for Dogs

Obesity in dogs is a significant problem in the U.S., consider getting a Fitbit for the pup. These devices can be attached to the pet’s collar to keep a log of their activity and the number of calories burned.
