September was National Responsible Dog Ownership Month, an initiative started by the American Kennel Club with the purpose of helping pet owners raise healthy and happy dogs by making sure they are aware of all the responsibilities dog ownership entails, from budgeting your furry friend’s health care to making sure it has proper identification and giving it enough love and attention. As a leading provider of innovative pet products, OurPet’s Company (OTCQX: OPCO) is dedicated to supporting responsible dog and cat ownership through its unique line of intelligent products designed to offer enhanced care and monitoring of your pet’s health.
To raise awareness of the fact that getting a pet comes with a series of obligations, the American Kennel Club has put together a list of basic responsibilities a dog owner must be ready for – requirements that are indeed the sign of responsible pet ownership regardless of whether your new family member is canine or feline. Some of these basics include regular veterinarian exams to make sure your dog’s overall health is good, sticking with your pet’s vaccination schedule to prevent possible severe diseases such as rabies or parvovirus, ensuring a healthy and balanced diet for your dog, keeping it properly hydrated and safe from the elements, and also making sure your dog has proper identification. By following these very simple guidelines, all dog owners can make sure their pets will be happy and healthy for many years to come.
With the OurPets® Intelligent Pet Care™ product line (http://dtn.fm/1O31j), pet owners will find it easier than ever to monitor their furry friends’ behavior and health, enabling them to develop a stronger bond for more complete care. The Intelligent Pet Care™ line is the first that offers a complete range of smart pet health monitoring products by incorporating Bluetooth® technology into everyday pet care. Owners will be able to keep in touch with their pets and be aware of any changes in their behavior or daily routines via the IntelligentPetLink™ smartphone app, available for download for both Android and iOS systems.
The SmartLink™ Waterer – Intelligent Water Fountain (http://dtn.fm/5j5Nw) and SmartLink™ Feeder – Intelligent Pet Bowl (http://dtn.fm/83Esn) are, for instance, crucial for keeping your cat or dog well hydrated and properly fed with fresh water and food, in the right amount. This eliminates the needs of leaving out a bowl of water or food while you’re away, which can be a problem if you have multiple pets and you would have no way of controlling how much food each of them is getting. The SmartLink™ Waterer ensures that your pet always has access to fresh water by sensing when it is near and dispensing clean, filtered water in a waterfall design. The water fountain’s Bluetooth® module then sends regular updates to the owner’s smartphone about their pet’s drinking behaviors, water temperature and more. The SmartLink™ Feeder works in a similar way, dispensing food only when detecting a particular tag that can be attached to your cat or dog’s collar. This system is ideal for a pet on a particular diet that requires meals on specific intervals. All of this information is then communicated to the owner’s phone through the IntelligentPetLink™ app.
The Intelligent Pet Care™ product line also includes the SmartScoop® – Intelligent Litter Box (http://dtn.fm/6LeLV), the SmartLink™ Tag (http://dtn.fm/X9EyX), and the SmartLink™ Gateway – WiFi Pet Care Connector (http://dtn.fm/0IN6p), which converts Bluetooth® signals into long-range WiFi signals to allow monitoring of pets’ activities outside the house.
