How to stay connected with your dog while you are away
24th July 2019
Many dog owners take their dogs on holiday with them, but this isn’t always practical, especially if the holiday is somewhere abroad.
Therefore, a lot of dogs stay at home whilst their owner is away. A dog is a member of the family, so you like to know that your pet is being well care for in your absence. Sure Petcare products can help. Sure Petcare’s connected products give you an insight into your dog’s day, even when you are on holiday, for peace of mind.
Your dog’s activity
Animo is an activity and behaviour monitor that can record your dog’s activity, giving you an insight into the amount of exercise your dog is getting each day. Animo uses Bluetooth Low Energy. If you use a dog sitter or other pet sitting service such as TrustedHousesitters, you can give your dog’s carer the ability to sync Animo so that you can view their activity from your mobile phone in the Sure Petcare Animo app while you are away. This can give you peace of mind that your dog is getting plenty of exercise and taking the regular walks they’re used to.
Your dog’s behaviour
Animo records changes in sleep quality, and increases in barking, scratching or shaking. You know your dog better than anyone, so if you notice any changes in these behaviours while you are on holiday, you can get in touch with your pet sitter to give them advice on your dog’s comfort.
Your dog’s feeding
If you have a small dog, the SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect can ensure that your pet continues to eat a healthy diet while you are away and allow you to keep track of their feeding behaviour. You set your dog’s portion size within the app and LEDs light up and then flash when the correct portion size has been reached.
This makes it easy for your dog sitter to feed your pet their usual portion size without the need for separate weighing scales. This gives your dog a continuity of care that will help them to feel comfortable while you are away.
You can view your dog’s feeding activity and receive notifications when they eat from the bowl, as well as when the bowl is filled with food using the Sure Petcare app. This gives you peace of mind while you are away that your dog is eating as normal and that the dog sitter is feeding your pet correctly.
