Its International Dog Day today and we bring a list of tech gadgets for your furry friends.
International Dog Day is observed on August 26 every year, founded by Colleen Paige, a pet and family lifestyle expert, animal rescue advocate, conservationist, dog trainer, and author. This special day was first celebrated in the year 2004. The date was August 26 because it was the date that Page’s family adopted their first dog, ‘Shelty’, at the age of 10.
Since we are all things tech, today we bring a list of tech gadgets for your furry friends.
1. Automatic Water dispenser
Dogs love to splash water all around and cleaning up after is a time-consuming process. Moreover, the water bowls regularly get dirty, your dog relies on you for cleaning up and hygiene. An electronic pet water fountain is the key to maintaining a clean water supply for your pet. While many products are available at different price ranges, it’s advisable to purchase the one with an in-built filter that can clean and recycle the water. Additionally, the fountain is at raised height from the floor, and this helps the dog a lot as there are much fewer chances of choking, and easy for them to gulp in water.
