Fountain Hills, Arizona (PRWEB) July 8, 2005
A new website is making life more enjoyable for pets and people. Petgadgets.com features the latest product innovations for animals of all shapes and sizes -- from cats and dogs to reptiles and birds.
ÂThereÂs a shift in consumer spending toward high-end, high-tech and innovative products but itÂs not being addressed by traditional pet stores. Our website fills that void,Â says Petgadgets.com creator Geoff Mott, who scours the internet and trade shows for the hottest products to showcase.
Some of those items include:
-Cy-purr Mouse: With one meow or touch from your catÂs paw, this toy springs to life, zig-zagging in unpredictable directions with supersonic vocal sounds.
-Global Pet Finder: Never loose Fido with this new GPS tracking system. Your petÂs location is continually tracked and sent to your cell phone or computer.
-PetSafe Automatic Feeder: Stuck in traffic after work? DonÂt worry. The dishÂs food compartments automatically open at a time you program. Plus you can record a voice message that calls your pet to dinner.
"Consumers, like me, have elevated their level of pet pampering and quite simply want more than an ordinary product," he says.
Mott started Petgadgets.com after his own exhaustive internet search for unique pet products turned up very little and, at best, was fragmented among hundreds of sites.
"I realized there needed to be a site that has everything under one roof for consumers who are looking for more than just the traditional pet toy or gift," he said.
Mott also sensed the frustration of inventors in finding a place that targets consumers for their pet gadgets.
This year consumers will spend an estimated 35.9 billion on their pets, making the pet market larger than both the toy and candy industries, according to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, a trade group that analyzes market trends.
The strong growth is fueled, in part, by high-tech gadgets, such a timed feeders and containment systems that enable a larger cross section of individuals to own pets.
Currently more than half of U.S. households have a pet.
