The Dog Pedometer

April 21st, 2009 No comments

Do you have that dog that is a little on the chubby side? Did your vet tell you that he should walk at least once a day? How do you know how far he should walk to get enough excercise to trim that belly of his? Well, meet the Canine Pedometer. It tells you how many steps your dog has taken in a day. You simply attach it to your pet underneight the collar and it will measure each step like The Police.

It was invented by Takara Tomy to help your pets get proper excercise each day. The Canine Pedometer can monitor movement of all four legs and has a mechanism in place to disregard shaking of the dog. No price yet but expect it to be less than £39.

Honda Element goes to the dogs

April 15th, 2009 No comments

I just adopted a dog.  It’s a pound puppy (well, kinda) and by the time this post is published, he’ll be the newest addition to the family.  So when I read about Honda releasing a version of their popular Element utility vehicle specifically for dog owners, I was all ears.


The Element was already popular with active folks cause it’s basically a giant sheet of plastic inside.  You can wash the thing out with a hose.  And its various tent options allow for simple tailgating to taking a family of four on a three week safari through darkest Africa.  Ok maybe only a week safari through the jungles of the exurbs, but still.

The canine-friendly version can be equiped with dog restraints, a ramp to help older dogs get in/out, a raised platform so your pooch can still see the family, rear fan for ventilation, and a built-in water bowl.  I am seriously eyeing this baby as my next car.

Dog Treadmill

Meet the Dog Treadmill. For that lazy dog that watches TV 24/7 and munches on left over food. The treadmill features a quiet motor and has a special rubber belt to help keep the dog comfortable and less impact on the joins. The speed and incline can be adjusted like human treadmills. The side rails holder keeps the dog from going sideways. It comes in different sizes that is suitable for your dog.
