Wow, what a year it’s been. A pandemic has caused a lot of us to be working from home this year and replace our usual office colleagues with our furry friends. Yes, a lot of our pets have seen a lot more of us this year with many of us confined to our own four walls in order to work and… well everything else for that matter.
We love our pets in the UK. So much so that we spent a whopping £6 million on them in 2019. We’re not just talking about the odd bag of kibble or a bone every now and then, we’re talking about crazy pet tech. Funky gadgets that have been designed to make your four-legged friend happier, healthier, or just to keep them out of mischief. Here’s our summary of the craziest and most popular pet tech of 2020!
The almost indestructible action cameras from GoPro have been adapted to be used by your very own dog.

Smart Water Fountain
Cats can be picky little…pets. As many of us know, they’re all different and have individual preferences for everything, including how they drink water. Many cat owners will relate to a video of a cat only choosing to drink from a dripping tap, completely ignoring the bowl of water next to them. This smart water fountain from Semai could be the answer.
It has several different water flow settings such as bubbling, flowing and dripping. If your pet is a bit fussy and prefers their water moving and running then this could be a great way to ensure your furry friend is properly hydrated.
