Instructables Community Manager and avid maker Mike Warren figured out a way to work on his gaming skills while walking his dog. He gutted a broken Xbox 360 controller and turned it into a large but somewhat practical dog leash.
If you and your dog are trekkies, you may have some silly Star Trek pet items around your place already. A new Trek-inspired pet product has surfaced that looks like Captain Kirk’s seat from the original series.
Fitness trackers are incredibly popular these days. One of these is Fitbit, which tracks your daily activity, the number of calories you’ve burned, your sleep, and so on and so forth.
And then there’s FitBark – an activity tracker for your dog.
I’ve often wanted to know what my daughters dog was thinking when she spends an hour outside, comes inside and immediately drops a deuce on the rug. I’m convinced the dog is simply an asshole. Now, a company has a product that it is working on, that is apparently a serious product for them, called No More Woof.
When it comes to pets, most people stick with dogs and cats. Some folks out there want something a bit different like snakes or turtles. A family from Brazil had a pet turtle, but lost it many years ago.
I feel immense guilt every morning when I say goodbye to Burrito, my hyper-energetic Pomeranian. There’s just something about his puppy dog eyes that make me want to stay home and play with him all day instead… which I unfortunately can’t do if I want to keep my job.
Cats know just what to purr and what to meow to get their owners to do anything. So if you own a cat, don’t look into their eyes. Don’t listen to their purrs too intently and never rub their tummies more than you have to… or you might end up like this dude who built the ultimate catwalk for his cat outside his out: cat-notized.
Get ready for a five year canine mission that mostly involves your dog’s lazy butt sleeping on this Star Trek dog transporter bed. Because to dogs, sleep is the final frontier and they love to explore it.
Dogs are truly man’s best friend. They’re there for you through thick and thin, even during times when other human beings refuse to speak with you.
I know many dog owners who love their canine companions to bits, so it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that doggy food and treat trucks are opening all over cities.
Because dogs don’t have to deal with work, other people and taking care of dogs, you can’t always match your pet’s enthusiasm and energy. But you can’t just leave your buddy hanging right? That’s why Grant and Denny Hamill invented the iFetch.
When you walk your pet at night, it’s safe to say that it’s pretty easy to lose track of it, especially when it’s black (like mine). That’s one of the reasons why I really like these superbright LED collars.
There’s no denying that cats like technology. Whether they’re playing Fruit Ninja, stepping all over your keyboard, or playing the synthesizer, cats and tech go together like peanut butter and chocolate. So why fight this natural phenomenon?
Even though it’s against Facebook’s policies to create profiles for pets on the site, people still do it anyway. The vast majority get away with it, while some people (or rather, some pets) have their accounts flagged, suspended, or taken down.
Cats have always had their place in history. The Ancient Egyptians regaled them as sacred deities and they were much-loved pets during the Chinese Song Dynasty. The close relationship that cats have with man continues up until today, where felines feel free to express their emotions (hello Grumpy Cat) and are spoiled rotten (have you seen this or this?)
Then along came the Sushi Cats.
People do different things to cheer themselves up when they’re down in the dumps. Some people watch reruns of their favorite series while eating a pint of ice cream, while others head outdoors for a run or play a game or two of catch with their canine best friends.
Some cats are small but terrible – in a good way of course. Like they say, the best surprises come in the smallest of packages, and cats fit this description to a tee: they might not be the biggest pet in your home or the biggest creature in the world, but they’ve got personalities as big as can be and they’re often not afraid to show it.
