Not ones to shy away from the camera, we were delighted when The Gadget Show asked to trial our activity monitor for dogs.
So do you want to know about the paw-fect review?
On November the 9th 2015, the Gadget Show selected four great doggy products to share with their tester Nicola, a gadget lover who was looking for pet tech for her two dogs. Cue Dash, The Gadget Show’s resident stunt dog, who willingly tried out a PitPat, the feedandgo, the iCalmDog and DogTV.
When it came to the PitPat, Dash hopped onto a special doggy treadmill and gave a superb demonstration of how the PitPat activity tracker works.
“The PitPat is an activity monitor for dogs that works alongside an app to keep you informed of your dog’s movements throughout the day. It’s a bit like the fitness bands, which are all the rage for us humans, only doggified” said Jason Bradbury. Short of comparing it to a Fitbit for dogs, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
After explaining some of its other features such as the fact that it can differentiate between running, resting and playing, that it is breed specific and that it can help give you tips on how to keep your dog active, Nicola and Jason both agreed that PitPat can “help you get to know an aspect of your dog’s behaviour that has been a bit mysterious until now”.
We thought Nicola looked pretty convinced and when it came to choosing which gadget she could take home, we thought she’d choose the PitPat, but in the end she let Dash choose for her and it seems his tummy had chosen the feedandgo. After all, it’s well known that the way to a pooch’s heart is through is stomach, but of course, we hope Nicola ends up buying a PitPat anyway!
You can still catch the episode of the Gadget Show on Channel 5 here but if you’re interested in getting your hands on your very own PitPat, we’re pleased to confirm that while we wait for our activity monitor to be available in the shops, that you can place a Priority Order on our website and get one in time for Christmas.
