December is the time of year when Santa brings gifts to all the good boys and girls. And I know of one very, very good boy.
This season is my border collie Boatmeal’s very first Christmas with us now. He is the smartest, most cherished, most exquisite, best boy on the planet, and he warrants a mountain of gifts into his channel. Hopefully Santa agrees, and has a look at this list of gifts for furry friends.
CleverPet Hub ($US299)
I am a big fan of enrichment toys for pets, and also the CleverPet hub looks like a great one. This gadget trains your pet to get a set of lights in order to obtain a treat. It starts out easily, giving free snacks to ensure that your pet learns to connect the hub with tasty tidbits. It then requires your pet to get a touchpad so as to have a cure, and ramps up the problem from that point. Finally, your pet will probably be touching lights in strings, identifying which lights will be brighter, and matching colors.
CleverPet corrects the problem so it’s just hard enough to keep your furry friend engaged and exercise their mind, but not overly hard for them to figure it out. Additionally, it isn’t only suited to dogs it was designed for both dogs and cats, also has been used successfully by an assortment of other creatures also.
Unfortunately, it now only ships to the US and Canada, and that means you’ll need to shed a bit extra on a mail forwarding service as well. But isn’t your doggo worth it?
Petcube Play ($259)
Sometimes, when I am having a tough day and only want to go home and snuggle up with my puppy, I imagine through Boatmeal’s Instagram to help tide me. It is a calming balm, but what would be even better (though not quite like a snug), would be if I might see a real-time livestream of the boy. Petcube Play not only lets you view live picture of your furry friend in your smartphone, but also the two-way sound allows you to talk to and listen to them also. There’s an integrated laser toy so you’re able to play along with your pet as well, though that is probably more suited to cats than dogs.
If you want to fling snacks for your pet while you’re away, you can try Petcube Bites ($349) too.
The PupPod is just another enrichment toy which has puzzles which increase in difficulty as the puppy learns. But, as opposed to automatically dispensing treats whenever your puppy does something properly, the PupPod indicates you onto a cell program, telling you to toss that fantastic boy a deal. It is possible to get a Pet Tutor treat dispenser ($US300) which will automate the match, but then you would not be spending quality time together.
Even the PupPod is a modified KONG wobbler, so you know it’s likely to be sturdy enough to withstand the attentions of your pup. Using motion sensors, it starts by requiring your puppy to be near the PupPod, then raises in difficulty to having them to get it. The puzzles continue to automatically increase in sophistication once your puppy has mastered them, making use of lights, sounds and time to present many different puzzles, maintaining your pet’s mind sharp.
U-Pet Carrier ($US129)
Pet carriers frequently look like tiny isolation cells, with pubs and plastic along with indefinite detention without trial. They are also cumbersome to carry, only to be utilized when moving house or going on a vacation.
U-Pet sells a group of backpacks and bags especially designed to carry your small animal companion as you go about your daily business. Rather than whipping out your phone to show people photos of your kitty, you can whip from the genuine article.
Much more aesthetically pleasing than the average carrier, U-Pet carriers comprise a transparent hemisphere to allow light and the bag’s occupant look out, a cushioned interior to keep them comfy, and many air holes to make sure they are well-ventilated.
In case my 30kg puppy match in among them, I would carry him with me everywhere.
SHRU The Smart Cat Companion ($US98)
SHRU is a kitty toy is designed to mimic a small animal, allowing your cat to gratify its cruelty without any true bloodshed. SHRU can itself on and off automatically throughout the day, and that means you can make it for him to play with while outside, or you may manually configure it for different modes. This toy will help keep your kitty’s mind and body active, and it is also rechargeable, so you don’t need to fuss around with batteries.
Dyson Groom ($89)
You have learned regarding the Dyson Supersonic hair drier, now get ready for the Dyson Groom tool. Our family recently suffered Boatmeal’s very first shedding of his winter coat. This entailed continuous brushing, which did nothing to abate the discovery of stray hair follicles everywhere from on food to onto toothbrushes. The Dyson Groom instrument, which is acceptable for dogs with medium to long hair, stinks accumulated hair directly into the vacuum cleaner, so it doesn’t wind ups coat your cardigans.
Vacuuming your puppy. The world is a beautiful location.
FitBark 2 ($US81)
Can you fear that your pooch isn’t getting all the exercise his little doggy heart requires? The FitBark 2 is a fitness tracker which attaches to a pet’s collar, tracking his activity and sleep to provide you insight in their health. The data can be helpful to help explain changes in behaviour and keep tabs on existing medical conditions, and to motivate you to keep active. The fitness tracker only started in Australia this season, and also is capable of connecting to a Fitbit, Apple HealthKit or even Google Fit so it is possible to keep track of both of your health stats collectively.
All For Paws Interactives Fetch ‘N Treat ($45)
If you aren’t quite ready to dismiss your vacation budget however your special boy nonetheless deserves something as unique as he is, this gadget may do the job. Load up the Fetch ‘N Treat with dry puppy treats, and it will release them if a typical tennis ball is inserted into its own top. With a little practice, your pet could keep playing fetch with himself long after your throwing arm is worn outside.
Regrettably the Fetch ‘N Treat doesn’t fling the ball for the dog to chase, simply rolling it across the floor instead. But it does the job if your pet prefers their exercise more tender than a free and skillet across the yard.
A Pet Box Subscription
Pet box subscriptions are the gift that keeps giving. Each month for the period of the subscription, so your giftee will obtain a deliver containing snacks, toys and accessories. This is particularly great in the event the pet in question enjoys tearing their toys aside, as you’re able to trust that a new one will arrive in a month.
You will find an assortment of pet subscription box services in Australia, each offering something slightly different, so you are spoilt for choice. As an example, if you’re only searching for subscription boxes especially for dogs, your choices include Waggly Club (whose Christmas box is pictured above), Golden Swag, Olly’s Box, So Fetch, GoGetMe along with PetObsessed.
R2 Fish School Training Bundle ($15)
