Anyone who has tried to walk a cat on a leash knows there has to be a better way to travel with a cat.  People who infrequently travel with a pet in one of those plastic pet kennels knows that they aren't all that great either because the dog or cat is often anxious at [...]

We love our pets just like any other member of our family (maybe more depending on the family!), but the sad fact is that a large percentage of pets are left alone at home during the day while their owners are away at work or school. This means that the pet might get lonely for [...]

Our pets are important members of our families and we want to do the right things to keep them safe. One way to keep them safe is to make sure that their ID tags are always up to date. Hopefully you take your dogs and cats to their yearly check up at the veterinarian. Typically [...]

Of all the product reviews that I wrote last year, I posted the most reviews about activity trackers. I wear an activity tracking device every day for two reasons. First, I like to see how many steps I've walked each day and two, I earn points that I can exchange for money through my day [...]

I always cringe a little when I'm driving along and see horses and riders sharing the road.  It's not because I don't like horses or don't want to share the road.  It's because I'm always afraid that something will happen and a horse or rider will be injured or worse because someone in a car [...]

When I think of air filters, I picture large devices that are too big to use in an office cubicle - and they certainly won't work in a car.  The Air Naturalizer from CritterZone is only 4.5"H x 2.75"W x 2"D, so it's small enough to place discreetly near your pet's bed or litter box to [...]

We've covered a lot of POV cameras and accessories on The Gadgeteer.  These cameras, like the GoPro, often have mounting systems that allow you to mount them on your helmet or on a car dash, so it "sees" what you see.  What if you'd rather somebody else carry the camera, or you'd like to see [...]

Pet safety is paramount to those of us who own and love them.  Road ID agrees and so they designed the Scout ID, a versatile,low-profile pet ID tag. Versatile because its two rubber O-rings can be slid over virtually any pet collar, low-profile because it sits up against the collar, not dangling below.  Personalized text is [...]
