A bored house pet is often naughty, or a destructive pet. House pets tend to be more disciplined when both their minds and their bodies keep under control. That's because our pets love us. I mean dogs aren't “mans best friend for no reason,” right.
Now, when you leave the house for work in the morning, you can keep your house pet chill and happy. Try out these four simple and new technologies for your four-legged buddy.
Creators of the channel recommend leaving your television on DogTV while you're away from home. The segments, which include nature shots as well as common household items your dog may be fearful of, can help alleviate separation anxiety, reduce your dog's aversion to the vacuum cleaner, as well as simply entertain his brain for a while. Providers such as www.cable.tv should offers these channels in your area. One word of advice — watch DogTV with your pup before leaving him alone with it. Not only may it entertain you, but it may give you an idea of how your gentle dog will react to the different segments.
Canines Have Their Own Beer
After a stress-filled day of chasing birds around the yard, fighting off the invading mailman, and keeping the cat away from him, your dog could use a drink to unwind. Since he can't hit up the bar, at least not in most bars, spoil your dog with a brew made especially for him. Dogs can't metabolize alcohol like humans can, sharing your Pabst beer isn't a good idea. Luckily, there are non-alcoholic beers like Happy Tail Ale that give your dog the flavor of beer with a splash of beef to appeal to his discerning palette.
'Game for Cats'
The iPad is an incredible device to the lifestyles of our house cats, as well. According to LA Times, 'Game for Cats' was released for pet owners who don't have enough time to spend with their four-legged feline. Cats will chase a bouncing light. If cats are able to hit the light, they receive a score. All pets, not just cats and dogs, are entertained by the same technology as humans. Just make sure you'll still physically exercise your pet, so he doesn't also emulate the laziness of humans, as well.
Forget those "fake" animal tweeters like “Guide Dog Dave” and “Simon the Cow(ell).” You know it's a person pretending to be an animal. Now, your dog can actually send tweets directly. Puppy Tweets are an electronic tag with a sensor that you attach to your dog's collar. It detects your dog's movements and sounds and sends a bundle of tweets to a Twitter account.
