Animals that are lonely are more prone to destroying stuff around your home. One way to keep your pets company while you're away is to turn an old tablet into a communication center. Here's how, using Skype.
Make a nanny cam
Or, if you just want to check in without disturbing your pet, turn your security camera to point at where your pets hang out and use the app to spy on them.
When your pet is acting sick and you don't want to leave its side, get your home assistant, such as Google Home or Alexa to look up symptoms for you. Then, have it call your vet.
Order food with your home hub
Don't forget that you can order food and treats using your Alexa, too. For example, you can order Wag, Amazon's new pet products brand for Prime members, and get two-day free shipping.
Vacuum your dog
I have two Husky furbabies, and they shed enough for five dogs. A good solution to keep your home fur-free is to get an attachment for your vacuum that brushes the coat and sucks up loose fur, like the Dyson Groom Tool or the Beam Pin Comb. Of course, this is only a good idea if your dog isn't afraid of the vacuum cleaner.
Find pet photos fast
If you're the type of pet parent who loves showing off photos of your babies, then you'll like this tip. To find photos quickly, activate your phone's assistant, such as Siri, Google or Bixby and say, "Show me cat/dog photos." The assistant will search your photos and show you all that it could find featuring your pet.
Pet make an oopsie? I like to call this quick fix pee-be-gone spray. Mix 16 ounces (about 500 ml) of warm water with 10 drops of peppermint essential oil or two tablespoons of peppermint extract in a large spray bottle. Spray the spot after you've cleaned it and let the spray sit a few hours.
