The dog loving world is catching up with modern technology.
Dog lovers play a part in all professions, but only recently has that translated to technology that can help owners love their dogs more. These machines help people communicate with their dogs. From training to enrichment, this technology is a small step into the future.
The Petzila allows you to see, speak to, and treat dogs. This machine is great to check in with your dog throughout the day and give them a special treat. With regard to training, you can remotely reward dogs for good behavior such as not barking or being destructive. It comes in at about $169.99 on their website.
This toy is ideal for dogs that love to play fetch. When used within reason, it is a great tool to incorporate more exercise for dogs with people with mobility issues.

With this machine, the dog drops a mini-tennis ball into the large hole and the machine throws it out the smaller hole. The iFetch would probably be a wonderful Holiday gift at only $99.95.
