Being a dog lover and a dog owner, you have to be a pack leader and let your dog know that you are in charge and they are supposed to listen to you. However, as easy as it may sound, training your dog is not always an easy task. You’ll always want your dog to walk with you instead of running in front of you when you go out for walks. But that never seems to happen even when you use the seemingly painful pronged collar. Before giving up on your dog, you might want to check this Tug-Preventing Dog Trainer out.
Priced at $39.95, the Tug-Preventing Dog Trainer is an electronic device which attaches itself between your dog’s collar and the leash. Everything will be well and dandy until your darling dog decides to be naughty and tug. The integrated speaker will then emit a harmless ultrasonic sound, inaudible to humans, but will irritate your canine. If they decide to tug harder, the ultrasonic sound will be louder. Your dog will then start to learn to walk quietly by your side to avoid that irritating sound.
Don’t worry about the sound disturbing other pets as it is only directed to the leashed pets. The Tug-Preventing Dog Trainer has four volume levels that can be adjusted according to your dog’s sensitivity. You only need two AAA batteries for it to work. With a dimension of 6 ½” x 1 ½” x 1”, this device is compatible with any leash and also suitable for dogs of all breeds and sizes.
Going on a long vacation seems impossible when you have a pet. There are so many things to worry since you can’t bring it along. Thoughts like “What is it going to eat?” “What is it going to drink?” constantly floats across your mind. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to relax. Fortunately, with the Catit Drinking Fountain, your burdens might just lessen up.
Now, cats are extremely intelligent and many different species has their own unique ways of hydrating themselves that ranges from lapping to pawing at water. The Catit allows them to do what they naturally do best by providing your cats with an unlimited supply of water while you’re on vacation.
So how does the Catit drinking fountain work? Well, the process is really simple actually. All you have to do is, fill the Catit up with water, plug it into a power outlet and watch as the water circulates itself in the device. The Catit also comes with a filtration system that filters dirt or food that gets into the water to ensure that your cats are supplied with clean and delicious water.
Combined with a circulating effect, which eliminates stagnant water and enriches it with oxygen and a power saving system, the Catit is a good device to encourage your cats to drink more water. Cleaning up the Catit and replacing it filter fairly simple but must be done once every 3 to 4 days to ensure a clean supply of water.
OK, this one makes me chuckle a bit. Finally, a convenient solution to an age-old pet problem. Cleaning up after your dog is not just a public service; it is your responsibility no matter how icky it may be. I bet all the dog owners out there are sick of handling dog poop plastic baggies, or worse, carrying around your dog’s steaming smelly pile of a gift (I’ll refer to you-know-what as gift from now own). And for dog walkers, cleaning up doggy gifts just may be the worse experience ever.
What if I were to tell you that there’s a device that could zap your problems away as easily as in a Star Trek episode when they zap their crew out of sight (Scotty, energize!). AshPoopie does just that, except it leaves behind an odourless ash of the previously smelly gift. AshPoopie looks similar to a walking cane with claws at the bottom that cover the doggy gift and turn it into ashes. The AshPoopie literally burns the gift until it is beyond recognition. No more bringing your dog’s gift home with you!
The only downside to this device that I could see is that you have to carry a cane around with you as you walk, but that’s not really a very objectionable inconvenience if you can finally solve this smelly problem. Maybe you won’t mind carrying a cane when you walk around and with AshPoopie, you can now walk your dog without the worries and add a little entertainment while you’re at it.
The manufacturer of AshPoopie has not come up with a cost or price for this device yet but they are expecting a monthly supply to cost around $10 to $20. A pretty small price to pay for a major convenience for you. Not to mention how much more tolerable you’ll be making it for all the other innocent bystanders and passersby.
One issue I have with dog-walkers is when they fail to pick up feces left behind after their dog needed the toilet. Some people are ignorant and believe they don’t have to pick it up; others are just too lazy. Today we have a pet gadget that is ideal for these people.
The gadget is called the AshPoopie. The AshPoopie aims to make it easier to clean up dog waste by providing a collection and disposal device. Although just a concept currently, the AshPoopie designed by Paulee CleanTech based in Israel aims to be a revolutionary pet product.
The idea behind the AshPoopie is to turn foul smelling dog feces into sterile and hygienic odorless ash. It does this by utilizing special AshPoopie capsules positioned into the hand held device that can be mixed with feces. Firstly, a button on the AshPoopie is pressed which opens and extends the device over the feces. A second button is pressed which scoops the feces up, once scooped up the AshPoopie capsule (containing neutralizing chemicals) is releases which mixes with the feces at high speed and results in a harmless ash being produced. The entire process takes less than a minute.
There is no information regarding the price and availability of the AshPoopie so far, however it is defiantly a concept that I will be keeping an eye on for the future.
Check out the video of the AshPoopie below.
We thought that the iPhone 3 was the ultimate smart phone because it can perform almost any function we can ever think of. But the problem was that our imagination is limited because Apple bounces back and introduces not only the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2. Even Samsung hopped unto the bandwagon and designed its own tablet to rival that of Apple’s iPad. If you think you’ve seen it all in the iPhone, you have not seen the Sphero!
By the name, you would know that Sphero is a spherical object. This palm sized plastic robot ball rolls and spins around via command from a smart phone. You can control the ball by synching it with your iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy or HTC Desire. The Sphero can also be integrated with other applications such as the Sphero Golf. This means that you can move the ball around as if you are playing golf with it.
As the Sphero spins and twirls it also illuminates with almost any color you can think of. For those who are tired of buying your pet toys which are practically chewed up the very next day, the Sphero is an alternative pet gadget to give your pets some exercise and fun. This is because most pets are terrified of the bright moving ball and others simply can’t catch up with it. So the Sphero will most probably never get chewed up or clawed by your pet.
Besides animals, the Sphero also appeal to young children. Simply start rolling the Sphero around to grab the child’s attention and he will stop everything he is doing; even crying.
