Litter Kwitter for households with a kitty

by Edwin - on April 10th, 2014

One can say that the world is divided into two different groups – one that loves cats, while the other would any day prefer the companionship of a dog. If you happen to fall into the former category, you might want to check out the £39.99 Litter Kwitter that is a slightly more advanced litter box than what most people would normally use. Basically, the Litter Kwitter is a tool that will hopefully teach your cat to do it’s business like a dignified human.

Forget about cleaning out the litter tray every single day, where the Litter Kwitter happens to be a radical 3-step training system that will help you teach your kitty to hop up on the toilet and poop onto the Litter Kwitter itself. Once done, all you need to do is flush, and even better is, you no longer need to purchase additional kitty litter which ought to help you save more money in the long run, not to mention the environment as well. Now, if only cats could be taught to know how to flush once they’re done…

Tagg – Helps you Find your Dog, and Helps your Dog Find Love…

If you’re a dog lover, you know that there’s nothing that you want more, than your best friends happiness. Sure you rub their bellies, give them treats, take them for long walks in the moonlight, but let’s face it… it’s highly likely that your sidekick is lacking in a certain kind of companionship, you know, the doggie kind. Is it fair to deny your pooch a soulmate? I understand that the chance for love to blossom with another canine may not have crossed your mind, but I’ll bet Fido has tossed the idea around a fair bit. Doesn’t he deserve someone to love too?

The Litter Robot – Keep the Cat, Lose the Odor

by Julie

I like cats. I’d have to say I’m a dog-person, but cats make exceptionally good companions, and for the most part they seem to require a lot less from us than our canine friends. That being said, there is nothing worse than a kitty litter box. The smell is unmistakable, the cleaning and used litter issues make me nuts. I read somewhere you can train your cat to use the toilet, even flush! My cat’s not having it…

Microchip Activated Pet Feeder makes Fido more independent

by Edwin

microchip-feederHaving a pet would mean being responsible for its health and overall well being, and this includes feeding it the recommended amount of food daily. However, there are times when we actually need to be away from the home longer than usual due to an impending deadline at the office, what are you to do to make sure that your pooch or kitty does not get hungry? Self-feeding machines that work using a timer might be a good idea, but the $79.95 Microchip Activated Pet Feeder could be more practical.

Basically, the Microchip Activated Pet Feeder happens to be a lidded pet bowl which will automatically open only when the intended pet approaches, which means that other dogs or cats in the house will not be able to obtain the food there. The included microchip tag would be attached to the pet’s collar, where it will transmit an infrared signal which opens the lid of the bowl whenever the pet comes within a 2′ distance. As the pet walks away, the lid will close. The microchip within happens to be a water-resistant, locket-sized plastic case which will not interfere with the pet’s normal movements. This might not be a good idea with breeds like the Labrador Retriever as it figures out quickly that being near the bowl would equal to food, and knowing its appetite, your food might not last it through a single meal time.

Ah breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Who does’t love some gorgeous farm fresh eggs, nestled up to some fluffy hash browned potatoes, with a strip, or 5 of crispy bacon? Wouldn’t it be fun to live the country life, and be able to walk to your backyard in the morning to gather your very own farm fresh eggs? Well, the folks over at Brookstone think it would be…

I sure know a lot of folks who consider themselves “dog people” and there truly is something to be said about the unconditional love of a pet… coming home at the end of a long day and being greeted enthusiastically by your furry friend. But what’s your buddy doing all day while you’re gone? Have you set him up to be entertained while you’re away?

Nightstand Dog House offers added convenience in your bedroom

by Edwin

nightstand-dog-houseThey say that a dog is a man’s best friend, although I am quite sure that some of us do not mind having some diamonds as our best friend as well (the ladies would know very well what I am talking about here). Still, you might want to give your four legged companion somewhere comfortable where it feels safe to sleep in at night in your room, ensuring that it also does not simply wander elsewhere to fool you into thinking that things which go bump in the night exist. The answer? The $499.95 Nightstand Dog House.

The Nightstand Dog House does what its name suggests – it happens to be a nightstand that has integrated sleeping quarters meant for your pooch. This does away with the need for a standalone pet bed, as the Nightstand Dog House will look as though it is part of the bedroom décor, while a door allows your pooch to access to their own sleeping space. You can choose to leave the slatted door panel there as a barrier, or remove it for freedom of movement. The nightstand itself comes with narrow openings on both sides so that there is adequate ventilation, whie it comes finished with a non-toxic stain that is safe for pets.

Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar ensures Fido remains quiet

by Edwin

bark-deterring-collarThere is the right way to train a dog, this I am sure. After all, investing a little bit of time to make sure that your pooch gets trained the right way where the basics are concerned is worth every single second, considering how you do not need to fret about future behavior when the rules are laid down right from the beginning. Barking, however, could be an issue if you live in a high density apartment, especially if the barking iis non-stop. Dogs bark for various reasons, but some tend to bark a whole lot more than the others. The $39.95 Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar might offer your ears some respite if you decide to give it a go.

The Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar happens to rely on ultrasonic sound in order to restore both peace and quiet to the surrounding. Each time a dog that wears this collar barks, the built-in microphone would detect such a sound, letting this unit release a harmless high-pitched tone that is inaudible to humans but would startle your pooch into silence. This would help the dog learn that barking results in the unpleasant sound, and might help curb this behavior pattern. Of course, there are no guarantee when it comes to the end result, but if you have already triend everything before and nothing worked, how about giving this a go?
