from your smart phone.

With the LINK AKC™ smart collar, pet owners can make sure their dogs are getting the right level of activity for the dog’s breed, age, and size. Visit to learn more.

Connect with your dog or cat via two-way video chat with PetChatz. This video monitoring system hooks up to the wall and allows you to have conversations with your pet via your computer. Just press the chat button and your dog or cat will see you on the full-color LED display. There is a treat button to drop treats during your conversation to reward your pet. You can even record your call to share or watch later. Visit to learn more.

Apps for Cats
If you’re too tired to throw a ball of yarn around and want some “close” time with Fluffy, there are a variety of cat play apps for electronics. Fluffy can play on the iPad or phone while on your lap. Here are a few free ones:
• Game for Cats – iPad (on iTunes)
• Crazy Cat – Android (on GooglePlay)
• Friskies Games for Cats – play online or download to Android or IOS
• Paint for Cats for iPad – (on iTunes) is not free but worth an honorable mention. Your cat chases a rainbow colored mouse on the screen and its paw leaves splatters of paint. So not only does your cat get to have some fun, but Fluffy creates a masterpiece that you can save and share.

Dog Bowl Water Bottle

In the Texas heat, it’s hard to keep Fido hydrated. It just got easier with the Dog Bowl Water Bottle. With just a squeeze of the bottle, the attached dish fills with water for your dog to easily drink. It’s leak-proof and excess water drains back into the bottle to minimize waste. An adjustable velcro strap lets you attach the bottle to a backpack, belt, or wrist. Fits any standard car cup holder. Visit to learn more.

Fluffy won’t feel the need to sit on our keyboard with the CATable. Those the top surface works as a desk, the rest of the table is designed with a network of smooth wooden tunnels that are just the right size for your cat to creep and crawl through. This is just one of many zany ideas. Visit and prepare to have your mind blown.
