So Now Even Dogs Get Their Own Remote Control


If the argument over who gets to hold the remote control never ends in your household, maybe you can settle things down by relinquishing control to your dog. That’s right, “a researcher at in animal computer design at University of Central Lancashire collaborated with pet food brand Wagg to create the world’s first television remote just for dogs.” The device features oversized buttons, and is colored blue and yellow to accommodate your canine’s colourblindness. It’ll let your pooch channel surf while you’re away, and settle arguments when you’re not. It’s currently under development, and Wagg plans to pitch it to tech companies once it’s ready. No word on price or availability.

The HurriK9 Launches A Spinning, Flying Disk For Hundreds Of Feet, For Your Dog To Catch


Playing fetch is awesome when you’re lazy. You just toss the ball, and your dog does all the work. But you’re still limited by how far you can toss, which in turn increases how often you have to bend down and pick up the darn ball. Never fear though, the HurriK9 can dramatically cut down on your effort levels. It’s a combination launcher and foam ring that can propel said ring up to 120 feet with minimal effort. You simply pull back on the mechanism, and launch. The ring spins through the air and floats ridiculous distances while your dog chases after it. There’s even an XL version that will launch rings up to 100 yards! The rings are made from Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) Foam, the same material used in Crocs Shoes and will stand up just fine to a dog’s teeth, within reason. You will have to replace the rings eventually, but the starter pack comes with 3. Currently well funded on Kickstarter, the HurriK9 requires a $39 pledge.

The Woof Washer 360 Helps You Get Your Dog Clean


How hard is it to wash a dog? We really don’t know; sometimes you see videos of them seemingly loving the water, other times they run from it. Whatever the case is with your pooch, the Woof Washer 360 at least tries to make the task easier. It’s a hollow tube filled with holes that connects to your outdoors hose. You then somehow convince your dog to step through it and get washed from every angle. There is a soap attachment, which can be bypassed with a switch when the time comes to rinse.

It seems it might be easier to just convince your dog to be ok being in the tub, but maybe you prefer to do this sort of thing outdoors. Whatever the case, it’s $20 or $25, and comes in a small (40 inches circumference) or large (49 inches circumference) size.

Disco Dog: Put Your Dog To Work With This LED Dog Vest


It’s cool that you’re taking your pup on a walk, but there he is, enjoying life and getting exercise, while he could be doing something useful instead. If you manage to get your hands on the Disco Dog, a cool vest covered in LEDs, you’ll be able to get your canine friend to display messages in what is sure to be an attention-grabbing fashion. Each vest contains 256 RBG LEDs, which allow you to display any color, scroll text, flash and do a number of animations, all of which are controlled through the companion app. There’s even a Lost Dog function that displays those exact words if Fido wanders out of range of your smartphone, encouraging passersby to help your puppy find his way back to you.

Yes it’s mostly a gimmick, but it’s a fun one and a potentially successful one given people’s general enthusiasm towards dogs. You’ll have to pay a good chunk of change to own a Disco Dog, though. The small vest costs a $300 pledge (and is sold out at the moment), while the Medium is $350 and the Large $400.

Alien Facehugger Leash Needs To Be Ours


Although we’ll have to buy a dog first. And we better make that an all black dog, because as cool as this leash is, the FaceHugger itself is attached to a black harness that will ruin the illusion if tied to anything but a black canine. That aside, this is one awesome leash. The alien is made of airbrushed foam, and the harness ties up with velcro. It fits smallish dogs, ranging between 15-35 pounds in size. It’s also pretty darn expensive at $150, but we bet you’ll be the only one in the neighbourhood with something like this and are likely to be quite the hit at the dog park…
