If you're desperate to think of gift ideas for your dog/s or someone else's hopefully this list will inspire you :)
Your dog will be panting when it sees what's under the Christmas tree this year.
Here Is My List Of The Top 10 Tech Gadgets Your Dog Will Pant Over This Christmas
1. The Tractive GPS Pet Tracker
It's not so long ago that pet tracking devices were a thing of the past.
But, thankfully, not anymore.
Pet tracking devices have been created to give you, the pet owner, complete peace of mind; and the Tractive GPS Pet Tracker is one of my all time favourites.
What Stands Out About The Tractive GPS Pet Tracker
You can create a virtual fence with a safe zone.
It comes with Tractive Live Tracking via your smartphone or web browser.
You can manage your pet's data and medical information with ease.
You can turn on a light or sound an audible beep on your dog's collar when you are searching for them.
It is a popular tracking device for use at home, when hiking and also when travelling.
It works in more than 80 countries.

You know what dogs are like.
They want you to throw the ball to them......again, and again, and again, and again.
And then some more :).
Is your dog a fetching fantatic?
If so, you -- and your dog -- are going to love this.
Let me introduce you to the interactive on demand launcher called, quite aptly, iFetch.
What Stands Out About iFetch
Whether you're away at work or at home, your little furball will be able to play ball all by themselves.
The iFetch can be used by your dog both inside and out and has become a ball-fetching global phenomenon.

3. Petnet SmartFeeder - Automatic Pet Feeder For Both Dogs & Cats
The Petnet SmartFeeder has been created to help you keep your dog healthy and happy.
It works by letting you manage your pet's feeding times, portion sizes and much more.
The Petnet App allows you to actually control the feeding of your dog (or cat) straight from your smartphone.
Pet owners love the fact that no matter where they are, day or night, they always know that their pet is being fed :).
What Stands Out About The Petnet SmartFeeder
It's quite a clever gadget as it actually measures the right portion of food for your dog according to its age, weight and level of activity.
It has a very sleek, modern design and you'll never have to worry about being woken by your hungry dog (or cat).
You'll also have great peace of mind when you're at work or away for the weekend.

4. Petzi Treat Cam Pet Camera & Treat Dispenser
The Petzi Treat Cam is an extremely highly rated remote camera and treat dispenser in one.
This allows you to stay connected with your dog when you're away from home via your Smartphone.
What Stands Out About The Petzi Treat Cam
It features a wide angled camera with night vision and high quality audio.
The Petzi Treat Cam will let you see, speak, snap and treat your pet remotely whenever you like.
It's also a fantastic opportunity to train your dog in many ways...
For example, it's a great way to reward good behaviour.
It's also a great way to alleviate any anxiety your dog feels when you are away from home.
And of course you can scold them as soon as you see them doing the wrong thing.

5. Go-Go Dog Pals
Go-Go dog pals is the next gen in pet tech toy and takes dog exercising to a whole new level.
It operates via remote control.
You hold the control, and steer the Go-Go Dog Pal wherever you want it to go.
What Stands Out About Go-Go Dog Pals
The Go-Go Dog Pal will go wherever you direct it to and it has the speed to stay ahead of your dog with ease.
It's very durable and stable and also handles bumps well.
If you get tired running around with your dog or just aren't able to do it like you used to, your dog will love this pet tech gadget.

6. PetZen DogTread
Yes, this is a treadmill designed specifically for dogs.
You may wonder why would a dog need a treadmill?
Here are some reasons.
Some dogs are literally bursting with energy, day and night.
They crave exercise and you just can't give them the amount they need.
A treadmill will allow them to burn off some steam.
Physical rehabilitation is another reason why a dog treadmill can be useful, just like when someone has an operation and has to attend rehab themselves to improve their mobility and physical strength after some kind of injury or surgery.
Another factor is time.
In this day and age we all seem so time poor; whether it's longer work hours or too many chores to do, or just not enough hours in the day.
The extra treadmill exercise can offer assistance in this regard.
Let's face it, we humans and dogs could do with way more exercise than we are getting.
A treadmill should never replace being outside, listening to the sounds of nature, smelling the beautiful outdoors and breathing fresh air.
However, if your dog needs more than you can physically give him then consider this quality treadmill created especially for dogs.
The way a dog thinks, learns and moves has all been carefully taken into account and the running or walking platform will help the formation of a proper gait in your dog.
Sometimes your health can significantly affect what exercise and activities you can do with your dog...
...or perhaps your dog is just too active for its own good and no amount of activity is every enough.
Then the whisper-quiet DogTread could be for you.
What Stands Out About The DogTread
As I've indicated, it's very quiet.
It's both portable and space-saving.
It's also recommended by top veterinarians and dog trainers.
As a bonus, this could be a real saving grace for when you're at work because your dog will be too relaxed to get into any mischief :).
As soon as one dog hears "Let's go treadmill" his dog licks his chops with glee and you can't get him off his 30 minute daily workout.

7. Designer Pet Eatery In-Wall Pet Bowl
Hate the appearance of your dog's food and water bowl?
Then this little gem could be for you.
The Designer Pet Eatery In-Wall Pet Bowl can be mounted safely onto your wall or even elevated to a specific height.
What Stands Out About The Designer Pet Eatery In-Wall Pet Bowl
Installation is a breeze.
Many dogs prefer to have their food and water bowls raised off the floor.
This makes clean up a breeze and there's a very helpful installation video on Youtube.
Customer service is also top notch.

8. Austin Air Systems Pet Machine
Let's face it, if you've got a dog (or cat) as soon as someone walks into your house they can probably smell them.
A home with a pet just has an odour, am I right?
That's the reason why this air purifier pet machine has been created.
There are many health benefits for using this air purifier and the cleaner air that results:
Sounder sleep, less snoring, stop sneezing, reduction in allergies and also asthma attacks.
If you're a health conscious family you will love this.
Both harmless and potentially harmful pet odours and particles are quietly removed while your home smells fresh and clean at all times.It also removes harmful viruses and bacteria and comes with an impressive 5 year warranty.

9. Fitbark Dog Activity Monitor
Fitbark is a small sensor that will monitor your dog's every day activities and regular sleep patterns.
The more active your dog is the more BarkPoints it will receive :).
What Stands Out About The FitBark Dog Activity Monitor
This is the new pet tech way to keep your dog healthy.
There's an added benefit.
Sometimes our furry loved ones aren't feeling well but we humans are none the wiser.
If you've got something like the Fitbark Activity Monitor on your dog you'll be able to see very quickly if there's a big change to their behaviour pattern and you'll be able to get them checked on right away.
You'll receive an alert along the lines of "Ralph is resting more than normal, is she okay?"
Your vet will also love it as you'll be able to share your dog's information with them so they can keep a watchful eye on your dog too.
The device and app are also highly rated.

10. Five Star Pet Fountain - Oxygenated & Filtered
Every organ in your dog's body requires water to function.
Your dog will love fresh flowing, well oxygenated water at their paw-tips.
What Stands Out About The Five Star Pet Fountain
This will encourage them to drink more water which is great for them.
Better tasting filtered water can reduce dehydration and urinary tract infections.
This pet water fountain is super quiet with three pools of water and two waterfalls.
It's also easy to setup, easy to refill and you'll love no mess.

11. The Refined Canine's Outdoor Dog Chaise Lounger
Yes, there's an 11 though, strictly speaking, this is not a tech gadget but it sure looks like something a dog would love, what do you think?
What Stands Out About The Refined Canine's Outdoor Dog Chaise Lounger
This dog chaise lounger is style, style, style personified.
It's made of quality constructed poly rattan.
The outdoor cushion can be washed in the machine.
The canopy can help keep the heat and sun off your pampered pooch.
