upgrade your pet with latest technology

Do you have a dog who keeps wandering off? Or perhaps a cat that turns your house upside down when you are away? 

The best part about having pets is never having to feel lonely and making a friend for life. Be it a dog, a cat, a turtle, a bird or even a hamster, pets are a natural stress buster and mood uplifter. 

You want to spend all your time cuddling and coddling your little munchkins and even while you are away, they have you worried and concerned for their safety and well-being. You never ‘get’ or ‘buy’ a pet, you ‘have’ them, just like children.

 Now’s your chance to do a little something for your little critters. The way technology has improved your life all this while, it can vastly enrich your pet’s dayto-day existence too. If you can have a cell phone, so can your pets. If you can have geeky toys, so can your little trotter. If you can have a GPS tracker, so can your precious animals. 

Time and technology have changed the way we interact with our pets, and today, there are countless solutions to solve your and your pet’s peeves. So, here’s  a list of all things tech that you and your furry friend can enjoy together.

Garmin Delta Upland Threein-one sporting dog collar

 The Garmin Delta Upland is a three-in-one dog collar that consists of an electronic training collar, a BarkLimiter, and a remote beeper to help locate dogs that are out of sight. Although the collar is best used on hunting dogs, it can also be a good device to train your pooch to be more disciplined. 

The Delta Upland includes tones, vibration, and up to 36 levels of momentary and continuous stimulation. It also houses an LCD display to switch among different training modes. The controller can be paired with three collars at one time, so if you have more than one dog, this will be a good investment for you. 

The bark identification technology in the Delta Upland uses accelerometer technology and is able to distinguish between barking and other vocalisations. Priced at $261 (`18,000 approx.) the Garmin Delta Upland can be ordered from Amazon.
