The following 20 cool dog gadgets offer a fantastic and innovative new way to interact with your dog, play with your dog, and keep your pup as healthy as possible through exercise, hygiene, and general care. The price range varies widely from just a few dollars to several hundred depending on the gadget and, sometimes, the size of your dog. All of them are useful and some of the best dog products out there.
You’ve heard of the FitBit, but how about the FitBark?! This new dog gadget acts just like a FitBit, but it’s for your canine companion. It’s waterproof, fits dogs of any size, has a convenient six-month battery life, and can even link to your FitBit or Apple Watch. This neat collar will track the distance your dog has traveled, calories burned, overall health, quality of sleep, and general activity levels. If you’ve ever worried that your dog may not be getting enough exercise or may suffer from anxiety, this neat little device will help to assuage your concerns and help guide your dog’s future lifestyle through the App. In this social world, the FitBark will even tell you how your future Olympian puppy stacks up against others of his or her type.
For owners who leave their pet’s food out and have multiple pets, you no longer need to worry about one animal stealing from another. Cats and dogs are notorious for trying to get their sibling’s food, especially if it is left unattended. Thankfully, SureFeed’s Pet Feeder uses the latest technology to stop this problem from happening. This feeder uses your pet’s existing microchip, or an RFID tag (one is included with a purchase) that can be attached to their collars, to know when to open for the pet when it is located near the feeder. This can help with stealing and with pets who need to be on a more restrictive diet, but may have food available to them all the time. One device can hold up to 32 separate identities, but the holder only keeps one cup of food at a time, so it is only recommended for smaller animals. For those who feed their pets wet food, the closing flap helps to keep food fresher for longer and free of pests like flies.
Personally, I have a dog that drinks oddly. He rests his nose on the edge of the bowl, and then laps water up the side, but if I pour water into the bowl from a water bottle, he eagerly laps from the stream. This fountain holds 100oz. of water and is multi-tiered for large and small dogs alike, and it also has a stream for dogs like mine that prefer to drink from something unencumbered. The PetSafe Drinkwell also comes with a carbon filter that can be replaced to make sure your dog’s water tastes fresh and clean. Another feature of this product that makes it so great is that it is top shelf dishwasher safe!
Bathing your pooch can be quite the process. Rescued dogs, especially, may not have gotten used to the hygienic treatment of puppies that have been with us since a young age. Therefore, the bathing process can be very stressful for them, and for us as owners. Many people bring their dogs to groomers, but if you want to, instead, save a few bucks the Aquapaw Shower Glove is for you. This handy device is a cool dog product that adjusts to multiple sizes and attaches directly to your shower head or to the hose outside. The soft design allows for more of a massaging aspect to get the shampoo deep into the coat of your canine.
Now this looks fun! This ring launcher is great for exercising your pets. You get the launcher that acts like a slingshot and three rings, though there are two types to choose from for more durability or less durability. If you have a high energy dog, or a dog that loves to retrieve toys for you, this product will make exercising them fun and easy. The launcher will let fly the less durable rings over 100 feet and the less durable rings will fly about 65 feet. The manufacturer also provides a return policy after seven days of a trial if your dog just doesn’t seem to be interested in catching UFO shaped objects.
Some more cool things for your dog upcoming! It’s an unfortunate fact of life that most of us, as owners, must leave our beloved pets at home when we go to work or go to the movies, but now we can interact with them using the Furbo Dog Camera. This super neat device is a treat holder and camera that links to your phone through an App. Through this App, you can view your pets, talk to them, and even give them treats through the device in your home. For this reason, it’s recommended to keep the treat dispensing camera on a tall location so the dogs cannot reach it in an attempt to get more treats! The app also has a barking alert feature that will send you a push notification. This can be a great way to stop an anxious dog from barking or to make sure your dog isn’t going wild at the window while people or other animals pass by.
I know what I’m buying myself for my birthday! The Paw Plunger. This is a very, very cool thing for your dog’s muddy paws. Mud and sand can quickly become a nuisance thanks to your furry friend, but now, you can use the paw plunger to wash away dirt before letting your dog back into the house, on the furniture, or in your car. There are three convenient sizes for any weight range, and each comes with a no-spill lid, so you can prepare for adventures outdoors by filling the plunger with water beforehand.
It’s very important to keep our dog’s happy and healthy. Part of that process is regular grooming. I, personally, love this product for my dogs in the spring and fall as it is perfect for the short fur of one dog and the longer fur of my other pooch. This cool gadget is a glove designed for our hands, covered in soft, rubbery bristles that help to pull up the undercoat that contributes to shedding. It leaves the guard fur in place and does not pull on knots harshly like other grooming brushes. You can easily peel off the fur once the glove is full and continue to simultaneously groom and pet your dog to your satisfaction.
Do you need more cool stuff for your dog when hiking, but want to avoid the bulkiness of lugging gear? This gadget is for the explorer and adventurer dog and owner couple that are looking for just that! The collapsible dog bowl is sturdy, small, and easily packed away in a backpack or on a dog pack. It pops open to hold 12oz of water or 1.5 cups of food. This is a safe option for hiking or traveling so you can share your bottled or filtered water with your dog without running the risk of them drinking from a nearby stream that may be contaminated. Always remember to bring extra water to stay hydrated out on the trail, and share with your dog every time you take a sip because chances are they are thirsty, too.
Bloat is caused when a dog eats too quickly and it can very quickly lead to a vet visit that may end poorly. Dogs are natural scavengers and tend to want to swallow their food practically whole so that another scavenger doesn’t get to it before them. At home, obviously, that usually doesn’t happen, but you sometimes can’t convince some dogs of that fact. Introducing the Outward Hound Dog Bowl. This bowl comes in a couple of sizes and forces your dog to slow their eating by separating their food into rings or mazes inside the bowl. Unable to take giant mouthfuls, your dog will have to lick and move their head around the bowl slowly in order to get the kibble. It is also top rack dishwasher safe, so you don’t have to worry about cleaning out all those crevices.
Dogs naturally know how to swim, but sometimes they may drift too far from us in our adventures into the wild or might be blowing their energy a bit too fast in the pool. Dogs, just like us, can tire easily from swimming and that is a scary safety hazard to think about. Thankfully, EzyDog makes a flotation vest that is comfortable and brightly colored for all your exploring needs. It sports a handle on the top to easily lift your dog back onto the kayak or dock and will ensure your pet has support and help, if needed, out on the water. The vest comes in a variety of sizes!
Walking your dog late at night or early in the morning can be a truly hazardous undertaking. Cars zip around and it is sometimes hard to see a pedestrian with their dog in foggy conditions, or during those dusk and dawn hours. To keep you and your dog safe and visible, Noxgear’s illuminated vest is a perfect match! There is a D-Ring on the back of the vest to hook up to your leash. Available in a wide array of sizes, the vest will allow you to be seen by other people, cars, etc. It also is a great idea for dogs that are allowed to run off leash in fields during nighttime hours as you can always keep an eye on them.
Here are some more cool things for your dog when it comes to bathing and grooming. Leaning over bathtubs or over your dog in the yard while bathing them can lead to you considering the option of a groomer to save your back, or you can buy a Booster Bath that will save you money down the road. The product is an elevated tub that snaps together, has a shampoo caddy, a leash and collar restraint to keep your dog from squirming around, and a convenient drain. Capable of holding dogs up to 125lbs (56kg), you’ll be feeling great and keeping your dog’s coat healthy and shiny in no time.
Cool stuff for your dog continues with this neat SUREswivel Pet Tie-Out. Innovative, safe, and guaranteed to keep your dog from getting tangled, the SUREswivel offers a way to take your pets almost anywhere outside. It can be permanently affixed to decks, cars, or to other hard surfaces in addition to being able to be grounded in grass temporarily. A leash or line is attached to the centerpiece of the tie-out which swivels in a 360 degree manner, letting your dog have a bit more freedom and keep themselves from being hopelessly tangled. Excellent for camping, parks, or your backyard!
Puppies and rescue dogs often need a lot of training in different environments, and sometimes we just want to keep our dogs stimulated outside the home with challenging training practices. I remember having to stuff dog treats into my hoodie pocket in order to go out into the world with a dog that needed training. Gone are those days! The Paw Lifestyles training pouch is an awesome way to keep pet treats with you at all times. You can wear the pouch on your belt, arm, or across your shoulder and it, also, has a few extra compartments for keys or a phone. My favorite feature, however, is that it also has a poop bag section so you’re always prepared and won’t be embarrassed when your dog decides to leave a gift for the locals. Check out more dog training treat bags.
As a multiple dog owner myself, I know that walking two dogs at once can be a challenge. They want to run circles around you or seem to enjoy getting tangled up in each other’s leashes. Peteast created a dog leash to help combat this problem. The main part of the leash is adjustable, as well as the two attached leashes that branch off from the main. The bungee material that makes up the dog’s half of the leashes makes sure that the two dogs won’t get tangled. One leash is easily removed off of the D-Ring if you just need to walk one dog, and you get a free clicker and poop bag dispenser when you purchase. In addition, there is a hassle-free 30-day money back guarantee and a 1-year warranty.
Will your dog chase after tennis balls all day and seem to be oblivious to the fact that your arm is tired? iFetch is an automatic ball thrower that will launch balls 10, 20, or 30 feet with the click of a button for the smaller version. The larger version, with larger tennis balls, to avoid choking hazards, will launch 10, 25, or 40 feet. There are two versions, one with smaller tennis balls for smaller breeds, and another version that has larger tennis balls to avoid choking hazards with larger breeds. Both come with three balls and will help your arm from exhaustion, keeping your dog healthy and exercise in the process.
Bacteria can easily grow in and around where your dogs eat and drink. Water, especially, can be deceptive as it is not easy to spot the microscopic threats. The Woofbowl is a cool gadget that keeps your pet’s water at a consistent temperature to avoid bacteria growth and even automatically fills itself! All you have to do is hook up the Woofbowl to a hose that supplies water and the rest is done for you. Another feature of this product is that it is electricity free so there is never a risk of water being exposed to a faulty electrical line.
I truly love it when companies that make products for humans start to make products for our pets as well. Purple is a mattress company that has branched out to making pet beds. Just like us, our dogs can suffer from pains due to sleeping on a bed that is poorly made. Purple offers a durable, 100-night trial guarantee with their Purple pet bed to ensure that your dog is comfortable and happy. Great for orthopedic or large dogs, this product is also excellent for our smaller furry companions, too. The cover easily slips on and off to be washed, as well.
Last, but certainly not least, in the cool dog stuff list is the WICKEDBONE. It is a toy that interacts and stimulates your dog with the use of an App from your phone where you can control the movement of the toy, or in an automatic mode where it moves on its own. The toy is soft and durable to protect your dog’s teeth from taking damage during vigorous play. Acting like a little remote controlled car, this bone zooms around to keep your dog’s attention for an extending period of time.
