Smart tech is going to the dogs — literally!

Technology can help make you a better pet parent. With products ranging from dog toys, pet cameras and everything in between, there is no shortage of technologies that you can choose from.

Looking to improve your dog’s life with smart pet tech but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered.



iFetch provides a fun new twist to the game of fetch. The iFetch original runs on AC Adapter (included) or 6 C-cell batteries. Once powered up, select the distance that best suits your space by pressing the button on the rear of the machine. iFetch has three distance settings, 10, 20 or 30 feet. Once selected your dog drops the ball into the top and the ball is launched out of the machine, for your fetch crazy dog to chase & collect! The iFetch also comes prepared with 3 miniature tennis balls.


Boredom in dogs can lead to destructive chewing, excessive barking, and hyper greetings. GoBone helps you keep your pup active and entertained no matter what’s going on in your life. GoBone automatically entertains your dog while you’re busy and opens up a whole new world of play when you’re together.  While in Auto Play mode, GoBone automatically plays with your dog for 15 – 25 minutes, providing them with mental and physical stimulation. The exact play session length depends on your dog’s age and breed.

Petcube Cam

Keep an eye on your pet — whether you’re home or not. The Petcube hardware device and app work together so pet owners can have a seamless rich video experience with their pet from anywhere in the world. Complete with 1080p HD live streaming video with a 110° wide-angle view for full-room coverage, pet owners have the ability to mount the Petcube on walls or ceiling to get a full view of their dog’s activities (and shenanigans!).

PupPod Feeder

Give your dog a treat using the automated PupPod Feeder. Pet owners can control the PupPod Feeer through an app and schedule when dogs get their treats and meals. The PupPod feeder can hold up to two cups of dog kibble, which can help to make mealtime a fun experience for you and your dog. The wall mount keeps the treats out of reach from the dogs to teach them not to counter-surf.
