As a member of the influencer team for Verizon Wireless, I regularly share ways that tech devices and apps can help you in your life and wedding planning. But have you ever thought about how tech and apps can help you have fun and protect your furry friends? As a dog owner and animal lover, I can totally relate to just how important it is to keep our animals safe and healthy, and there are some super awesome techy ways to do just that. Not only are they effective and simple, but some of them can make great gift ideas for pet lovers, too!
Gift Ideas for Pet Lovers
Want to keep an eye on your little furry friend while you're away at work, or even while you're on your honeymoon? Check in on Fido from anywhere using the corresponding app that works with your smartphone!
This tracker attaches to your pet's collar and tracks his or her movement. Keep up with your pet's location via your smartphone so your furry friend will never get lost. Set up a “safe zone” and be alerted if your pet leaves that area.
Late getting home from work? Turn the lights on at home from anywhere using your smartphone so Fido doesn't have to sit alone in the dark.
Apps for Pet Lovers
Whether you're rocking an iPhone 6 Plus or a Samsung Galaxy Note 5, there are dozens of pet friendly apps worth checking out. Stock up on iTunes or Google Play Store gift cards at Verizon Wireless so your pet loving friends can take advantage of some of these awesome apps:
