Yes, they are for real. Game machinesfor dogs. I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your techstination gadgets and gear. We Americans sure love our pets….to the tune of something like 60 billion dollars a year. That’s why it is not so far fetched that companies have created machines to help us keep our dogs happy. CleverPet challenges them to tap on flashing lights…rewarding them with food. Co-founder Dan Knudsen says it gives dogs puzzles…
“And it’s connected to WiFi so you can keep track of your and we can actually update the dog’s interactions over the air.”
The price…about three hundred dollars. If Fido needs more physical exercise, the Pet Safe Automatic Ball Launcher sends tennis balls at adjustable distances across your home or yard. And for dogs that love playing fetch…they can be trained to drop the balls back in the hopper…so they can keep on going. The Pet Safe machine automatically will give them breaks every fifteen minutes to rest. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
