With the ‘internet of things’ making every aspect of domestic life smarter, could it do the same for your dog? Well, it certainly won’t turn your mutt into Lassie, but the ProBowl smart feeding bowl will make keeping tabs on your dog’s diet a whole lot easier.
The ProBowl allows you to monitor your dog’s food and water intake and lets you know if there are any changes. There’s an accompanying app that connects to the bowl via your home wifi network, and by entering details such as breed, weight, and age, it creates bespoke menus based on vet-recommended standards. Not only that, if you scan the barcode on your dog’s preferred dog food, the app learns the brand and the package size, and keeps an ingredient log to help trace possible allergies.
It’s a super-scientific approach to dog care. But will it prevent Fido making off with last night’s sausages?
