HOW TO GET MORE FROM YOUR PET FEED­ERS

Australian T3 - - SMART PET FEEDERS -

CHOOSE THE ONE YOU NEED

It might sound ob­vi­ous, but if you want to cre­ate an au­to­mated feed­ing rou­tine for your cat or dog with feed­back on their eat­ing progress, go for a smart pet feeder – that’s the Pet­want. If you just want to show your pet a lit­tle ex­tra love, treat them to some spe­cial kib­ble by us­ing a treat cam – that’s the Furbo or Pawbo. The lat­ter are much smaller and more in­ter­ac­tive, but they’re no re­place­ment for your pet’s nor­mal feed­ing sched­ule.

GET THE HEIGHT RIGHT

Some smart pet feed­ers are de­signed to sit on the floor (case in point – the Pet­want), but oth­ers ben­e­fit from be­ing higher up on a sur­face. Furbo fires its treats out at an an­gle up­wards, but un­less your dog (or cat, if they’re par­tic­u­larly cun­ning) is re­ally small, the treats will land at their feet, so con­sider plac­ing a feeder such as this one on a small side ta­ble for op­ti­mum ef­fect.

SE­CURE IT IN PLACE

Got a par­tic­u­larly bois­ter­ous pooch? Then you should take ad­van­tage of your smart pet feeder’s abil­ity to screw onto a sur­face. The Pawbo has pro­vi­sion for screws (at­tached to a sur­face us­ing wall plugs) at the rear, and it also comes with sticky pads un­der­neath to se­cure it in place. If you don’t, chances are your new gadget will end up crash­ing along your kitchen floor when feed­ing time comes.
