PET TECH

Huan
We all know that losing a pet is a common thing for any owner. Since there’s not always an Ace Ventura around when you need one, Huan has something better. Created by Gilad Rom, Huan finds and returns missing pets automatically through the trackers on their Smart Pet Tags. The tags then connect through Huan’s Pet Protection Network, allowing you to receive instant alerts if your pet is detected away from home or from you. The missing pet alert is also automatic, so you’ll be alerted if your pet escapes when you’re not home. As common as it is to lose pets, Huan truly is a godsend. Info: gethuan.com

Well you’re in luck. iDig is the first digging toy for dogs, providing hours of positive physical and mental stimulation by encouraging the dog’s natural digging behavior through playing.

PuppComm
Because of how horrible a hot car can be for a dog, William Loopesko of PuppTech has created a solution. PuppComm is a device that monitors the temperature and humidity inside a vehicle and sends real-time information to an app on a user’s smartphone. It also comes with a sticker to inform passersby that the dog is being monitored, and gives them a number they can text to see the same information the dog’s owner receives on their phone. The device is portable, so it can also be attached to cages and crates to monitor dogs wherever they are. Although William Loopesko does not recommend leaving a dog in a car for extended periods of time, the reality is that many owners will leave their dogs in the car. Therefore, the app can help ensure owners that their pet is safe regardless of circumstances. Info: pupptech.com
