If you are gone for long stretches of time, or returning to work and other activities this summer, you may be looking for products that can help your dog when you aren't around. Check out five products or services that you and your dog will love.


Treat Dispenser with Camera

Dog treat dispensers with cameras are a great way to keep your dog from getting lonely when you are away from home. They are controlled by an app where you can turn on the wi-fi camera to check out what your dog is up to, and you see if they’ve gotten onto your home furniture! It even allows you to talk to your dog live through a speaker. Just fill it with treats, and it will give your dog one with the push of a button.


The device plays a tone before the treat is dropped, so that your dog will learn to stand in front of the camera when you want to see him. This device allows you to be stress free and have less worry when you need to leave your pets at home. 


Automatic Sliding Doors

Automatic sliding doors are a great option for you and your dogs. Automatic sliding door systems allow you to give your pets the freedom to go in and out as they please. With Autoslide's Pet Tag Systems, you will not have to lift a finger to let your pet in and out. You can even set the width of the door opening to the size of your pet so you will not have to worry about other animals getting in.


The automatic sliding door system can be installed on both interior and exterior doors, plus can be controlled on an app on your smartphone. It has features so you can lock the doors when you are not home, and disable the automatic door system to keep your pet safe and inside while you are away from home!


Dog Walker Apps

Dog walker apps such as Rover and Wag make it possible for dog owners to be connected to dog walkers and schedule walks directly from their phones. These apps are both easy and convenient for dog parents. The company hires walkers and then matches those walkers with your dog based on their profile and availability. These apps allow the walkers to share information with pet owners about their route, the total time, and distance traveled. They also let you know if your puppies used the bathroom or not. The walker can share their GPS location so you can track their route during the walk to ensure your pup is safe!


Automatic Food Dispenser

There are many benefits of investing in an automatic food dispenser for your dog. We all know that our work and life schedules can get in the way of feeding our dogs at their preferred time. The automatic food dispenser portions out meals for your pets according to a pre-programmed schedule. This is very helpful because it provides portion control and prevents your dog from overeating leading to stomach aches.


Automated food dispensers are especially helpful for dogs with dietary needs and restrictions who have to eat the same amount of healthy food at the same time each day. By using an automatic food dispenser, you will never have to worry about your dog being left unfed while you’re away from home!


Automatic Water Dispenser

Automatic water dispensers come in a variety of options depending on your home design and your dog’s needs and preferences. They not only keep your pups hydrated but they provide better quality water. This is due to the constant recirculation, which keeps it fresh. Dogs also love the motion of the water trickling and might think of it as a game, so it’s a great way to get your dogs to want to drink more. The most important aspect of automatic water dispensers is their convenience! You never have to worry about refilling your dog’s bowl. 


These are some great smart home devices that can help you and your dog’s when you’re not able to be home with them!
