pet wearable devices
Locating and monitoring devices are the best option to allow a more natural lifestyle for our family of pets.  Interactive devices would be a godsend to our desire to protect and care for our loved ones.  We are always seeking means of providing for their welfare, safety, and healthy lifestyle, which includes monitored freedom of movement outside.  Outside in our area is a wildlife forest with wild hungry predators.  And city ordenances require constant monitoring, i.e. "on leash" outside personal residence area.

Re: Wearable for doggie bladders?
@Pedro I really liked your idea but sometime think that if they might have understood our language or mind, this association will be long gone as most of the time we treat them badly not in a phsical sense. Now reverse the situation and if we comes to know what pets are thinking about us after this episode of enemity. I think best is to keep where we are right now. :)

pet's view?
Wow so now pets get to have wearables of their own. But of what use will be a wearable showing you the world through your pet's eye? I wouldn't find it amusing,  let alone useful.

Re: Wearable for doggie bladders?
the pet to dog translator looks uncomfortable. I used to live with someone with pets.  I would like to ask the cat, why does she like to scratch me or the dog, why is he peeing in the wrong place? I think the pet mind reader is the real success story if it ever available.

Re: Wearable for doggie bladders?
Hmmm perhaps some kind of wearable to let them know where they ARE allowed to go pee if locked up in the house...that would work with for example the doggie indoor potty systems..suchas Fresh Patch or other indoor potty systems.  :-)

Re: Wearable for doggie bladders?
@Susan- To be fair, it is bacon scented. And it drives everyone wild, not just dogs. :)

And of course, I'd never really shock a dog for licking me.

Re: Wearable for doggie bladders?

@David: if you stop using that peanut-butter scented cologne you may find the dogs won't lick you anymore. and it's far kinder than shocking a poor pooch just becuase you don't like dog tongues. 

I have one active kitty and one laybout kitty. the layabout would tolerate the on-collar camera, naturally. The active kitty would surely destroy it within seconds of it being placed on her collar, and then present the pieces to me as a prize.

Re: Cool idea... we had 3 dogs at one time...2 of them were adventurers/runners.
@Anon123843....Thank you for sharing the story of your beloved Xena. Now Voyce makes complete sense to me, and I may in fact consider it for my lab/pit mix, Angel, who is turning 10 years old next week. If technology can help us keep her healthier and happier, then it's worth it for sure. 

We had a Shih-Tzu that we adopted from a shelter years ago. He had been taken from his owner by animal control due to severe neglect, and we were told he was 2 years old at the adoption. But when we visted the vet for his first checkup we were told he was a senior, probably around age 7. Of course, we kept him anyway, and nursed him through numerous health problems in the time that he was with our family, including terrible bouts of collitis. Now, I wonder if we had a health monitor on him if we could have seen warning signs before the collitis got so bad that he stopped eating. Eventually we were talked into a surgery for him that in hindsight we never should have done, as it made his last few weeks with us a horror show. It's so hard to know what to do in these situations. I wish something like No More Woof really could tell us what the animals were feeling. I'm sure our shih-tzu Tucker would have said, "I know you're not ready, but it's time to let me go" and we would have never put him through the surgery.

Perhaps your Xena had a great deal of wisdom, choosing her time to pass while you were away so that you could remember her as she was in life. I'm sincerely sorry that your son had to cope with that, though. Each animal we have in our lives leaves their own unique paw prints on our hearts.

Re: Wearable for doggie bladders?
Ha! these are cute. But if i put that camera on my cat, all i would see is the piece of sunny carpet where she slept all day. :)

You know what I'd like to see-- I'd like a pet wearable that teaches dogs I don't liked to be licked. Like it shocks their tongue when they try it or something. I am the dog tongue magnet. It is my greatest curse.
