If you have a dog, chances are you also have a few good dog doo war stories about the time the bag you were using to scoop the poop had a hole in it or the time you stepped in something right before work because the kids didn't want to pick up Spot's droppings from [...]

CritterZone-air-cleaner

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 [...]

mutt-mount

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 [...]

roadid_scoutid

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 [...]

porch-potty-litter-box-for-dogs

Sometimes I envy cat owners.  Cats use litter boxes, so there are no cold potty breaks in the cold, blazing heat, snow, or rain nor 3:00 AM emergencies in the dark.  With the Porch Potty Premium: First Automated Grass Litter Box for Dogs, you can enjoy the luxury of "indoor plumbing" for your dog.  The [...]

Aquaponics_aquafarm_01

What if the "chores" of maintaining a fishtank and herb garden suddenly took care of themselves, allowing you more time to, well, do just about anything else?  The AquaFarm from Back to the Roots is a closed loop eco-system that does just that!  Your fish does his little fish thing on the bottom and the filter [...]

to-go-bowl-pet-travel-bowl

We always take our dog, Teddy, along when we travel.  He's an anxious little guy, and his car seat is next to a window (won't fit anywhere else in the car) so he's always in the sun.  Those two things, combined with his heavy coat, keep him a little overheated as we ride along.  We [...]

A bored kitty is a destructive kitty.  With the Solar Powered Cat Tantalizer from Hammacher Schlemmer, your cat will be too entertained to have time to shred the toilet paper and up-root and chew your potted plants.  Stick the toy in a window or glass door with the industrial-strength suction cups, and the solar panel [...]

smartleast_fredflare

If you own a dog, this scenario is probably quite familiar to you: coming home to a dog just itching to get outside, unable to wait for you to get together all of the doggie essentials; in your haste to get him outside, you forget the all-important treat or, worse, the waste bag.  And the [...]

aikiou-stimulo_cat_bowl

The Aikiou Cat Stimulo Feeding Station engages your cat's mind as she eats her dinner.  Instead of just gobbling down her food quickly so she can get back to her 23-hour nap, she has to use her paw to dig her food out of the tubes.  This "foraging" slows down eating, which can mean fewer [...]
