We love our pets. They are apart of our families and make our lives so much more enriched and fulfilled with unconditional love. Whether its a bird, bunny rabbit, kitten or puppy, we love them all the same. It’s the main reason why the pet industry has exploded over the past decade where it was a $36B market in 2005, and $60B market in 2015.
With that growth, pet products have evolved from simple pet food, to raw, organic and even vegan. My own dog get to eat My Perfect Pet high-quality dog food from a local company in Poway, CA, because she relies on me to give her the best possible to keep her healthy and strong. We treat our pets like family and as such, tech companies have been creating connected devices to help us not only keep track, but to entertain our pets as well while we are away from them.
The pet industry’s connected pet items are as high tech as the stuff made for humans, it’s just that they don’t have the marketing power of larger companies to inform you of their latest inventions. That’s what we are for.
