Dog Caller: Your Dog Can Now Text You

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 27, 2012


Texting and messaging has evolved quite a bit ever since it was launched on the mobile phone scene, but this smart collar is the first time I’ve seen a way for your dog to send you text messages. While your pup won’t be able to thumb-type LOLOMGWTFBBQ, you will get a message in the event that he’s in trouble from heat exhaustion.

Rethink Toronto collaborated with the Toronto Humane Society to design the Dog Caller, and it could help your four-legged friend from peril, whether he’s at home or in your car (not that you should ever leave your dog in the car.) Thanks to the collar, a SIM card, thermistor, and LEDs, you can monitor the temperatures around your pooch remotely. The collar will send you an instant text message when the heat gets dangerous, so you can quickly get your dog out of the heat.

That’s something pretty useful, especially for breeds like bulldogs, who can easily die from heat exhaustion. The device will be available starting Spring 2013 for $20. Now somebody needs to combine the Dog Caller with this.
