the app for what works best for them and their pet. The Smart Dog Trainer utilizes
a PIN security system that allows multiple authorized users, such as family mem-
bers or dog walkers, to connect to the collar with their phone.”
In line with other popular products for humans, dog fitness trackers are
increasingly popular as well. One such offering from PetPace is called the
Smart-Sensing Collar. Recently, the company updated the collar’s functionality.
“In the last six months, PetPace has introduced significant advances in its
algorithms and analytics to help transform the huge amounts of data that we are
generating into meaningful insights about pets’ health and well-being that can be
clearly displayed in real time on mobile or web apps,” said Abraham Menkes, CEO
of PetPace in Burlington, Mass.
The company’s app streams information from the collar to inform owners of
their pets’ health, Menkes added, and its health-monitoring service is designed to
analyze data from the collar in real time.
Monitoring products are increasingly popular across the board, with actual
camera-based systems also showing up in the marketplace. One such product,
Eyenimal’s Petcam, also works with a smartphone app.
“You can actually see from your iPhone or your iPad, and you can scroll
around the room and you can see what your pet is up to,” said Mike Lasky, partner
at SLA Brands, the North American distributor for Eyenimal, with U.S. headquarters in New York. “It has night vision as well.”
Training and monitoring devices
that integrate with smartphones
could become the new normal—if
pet owners can be convinced of the
value of these new technologies.
