Don’t look now but social media is going to the dogs! Well in a manner of speaking that is. We all know that there are a lot of dog owners out there who simply cannot stay put whenever their friendly K9 is not around them and given a choice, they would want to install surveillance cams or get paid help to make sure they are up to date with what is happening when they are not around their pooch.
Many would call it an overboard way of loving you mutt but now, there is a gadget that can perhaps monitor everything your dog does and even tie you up with other dog owners while you are at it.
SNIF Labs has unveiled a pet accessory, the SNIF Tag, that combines wireless sensing and social networking technologies to give dog owners peace of mind to supervise their dog’s activities plus a means to socialize and develop relationships online with like-minded owners.
So you have to think, to whom is this beneficial; the owner or the dog? Well perhaps both. For one, the dog can be spoiled by the owner at times, going to the extent of treating them as if they were their own kids. We all invest a lot in gadgets and stuff and with a SNIF Tag, it is not surprising to be seen growing in numbers behind every dog’s collar.
