Our love for our furry friends has turned the pet industry into one worth billions, which is no wonder considering the plethora of gadgets and gizmos available for our four-legged friends and beyond.

Whether it’s to keep them entertained or for more practical reasons, technology expert Trevor Long rounded up the best technology products for pets on Today this morning – and some of them are the answer to solving simple, but frustrating, problems.

“We both have dogs that shed hair everywhere,” Today co-host Allison Langdon told Long. “What have you got?”

Long was all too happy to answer Langdon’s question, suggesting the $129 Dyson Pet Grooming kit as the perfect way to deal with shedding.

“You’ve got to tackle it at the source,” Long said. “So instead of cleaning up afterwards, this is the Dyson Pet Grooming kit.”

Long explained that the product is available for the stick, cordless Dyson vacuums, rather than just the vacuums that require you to plug them into a power outlet, and that the attachment also has a brush on it, so when you brush the hair on your dog or cat, it goes into the brush’s bristles and then can be sucked into the vacuum, leaving no mess.

Never one to miss an opportunity to joke with his co-host, Karl Stefanovic told Langdon: “You could probably use that on your legs!”

“Hey, you said earlier that you shaved your back, so I’d be quiet if I were you,” Langdon laughed as she replied.

Long said of the product that you don’t want to startle your pet, but if you get them used to it, then it would be a “great way to stop the shedding throughout the house.”

Next up is a $179.95 four-litre Laser smart feeder, which dispenses food on a timer.

“So if someone works long hours, it will dispense food throughout the day,” Long said. “Also, it’s smartphone connected, so you can just press a button and dispense food.”

Long also highlighted a $279.95 Laser smart treat dispenser that has a video function.

“You could be at work, look at what your pet’s doing, talk to them, and actually dispense a treat while you’re at work,” Long says.

He also highlighted a $99.95 four-litre Laser smart water fountain, which recycles water.

“So, instead of the water sitting static, it’s always nice and fresh for the dog,” Long says.

Long also suggested a Zenify dog water bottle, which is available for $20 on Amazon. It holds water in a container, which can then travel through to a bowl-like attachment for the dog to drink easily while out for a walk.

The next item – a Fitbit for your dog – caused Stefanovic and Langdon to say, “Come off it!” simultaneously in disbelief, but Long persisted, saying the $78.95 Fitbark 2 from Pet Supplies Empire is ideal for checking to see if your pet has exercised enough during the day.

Long also suggested a $45 Apple AirTag to attach to your dog’s collar so you can track them with your iPhone if they’re prone to wandering off, or an LED light-up dog collar – some are available on Amazon – if you’re walking your dog at night.

He also suggested an $87.30 iFetch dispenser, which dispenses balls for a game of fetch automatically in different directions, so dogs can play fetch on their own.

Stefanovic, however, says out of all the items, the Dyson Dog Grooming kit is his favourite.
