Here are our top four pieces of pet kit:

Petzi www.petzi.com

This ‘treat cam’ lets you ‘see, speak, snap, or treat’ your pet even when you aren’t with it. The device, which has a wide-angled lens, can be positioned anywhere and you connect with it through a phone app, allowing you talk to your pet and dispense treats. You can even take a photo and share on the Petzi Social pet Instagram site.

PitPat www.pitpat.com

This handy, lightweight tracker attaches to your dog’s collar and connects with a smartphone app so you can view information on how long your dog has walked, run, played and rested throughout the day.

FitBark www.fitbark.com

Similar to PitPat, this not only measures your pet’s activity levels, it also puts an emphasis on health if you’re worried your dog may be out of shape, with comparison information in the FAQ section of the FitBark website.

FroliCat Bolt www.frolicat.com

Hours of fun for you and your cat with this standalone laser pointer device which projects random laser patterns across the floor, along furniture and along walls. Best to remove all breakables from the room your cat is playing in.
