Sure Petcare to preview new dog behaviour and activity monitor at Dog Lovers Show, Sydney
19th July 2018
Sure Petcare, the pet technology specialist, will be previewing the latest offering in pet tech, Animo – a dog behaviour and activity monitor, to visitors at the Dog Lovers Show, held at the Royal Hall of Industries, Sydney on 4 and 5 August 2018.
Shown for the first time in Australia, Animo allows owners to track their dog’s activity and behaviour, building a comprehensive picture of their health and wellbeing. Planned for launch in September 2018, Animo is more than the standard ‘Activity Monitor’; it provides owners with a window into their pet’s day: his activity, behaviour and wellbeing. By learning a pet’s daily behaviour traits, Animo alerts owners to possible changes outside normal parameters, including barking, scratching and shaking and also includes:
- Activity and Behaviour Monitor
- Records sleep quality during the night
- Monitors activity and play. Set goals and check these against recommendations
- Reports behaviour-based insights to help indicate changes in health or wellbeing
- Durable, lightweight, compact and waterproof – designed to cope for the day to day activity demands
- Six-month battery life which is easy to replace with a coin cell which does not need repeated recharge
Graham Taylor, National Business Manager, Sure Petcare Australia said: “The launch of Animo will be a game changer, offering a unique window into the behaviour and activity tailored to an individual dog. Changes in sleep quality, or in the general wellbeing of your dog, such as increased scratching, shaking or barking, can be an indication of an underlying, deeper issue. Animo has been designed for owners to identify changes in what is normal for their dog, helping owners to make proactive action when needed. We are delighted to be showing this to the Australian marketing ahead of our launch in September.”
Animo has a suite of algorithms that interpret activity data into accurate and intelligent insights and is the culmination of extensive research and collaboration between Antelliq group companies to apply this world-class animal monitoring system to canine activity and behaviour. The breadth of activity and behaviour monitoring delivered, as well as the accuracy of its algorithms will make it a game-changing product.
Visitors to the Sure Petcare stand, H138, will be offered the opportunity to win one of two Animo products.
