Dog parents are always looking for new and interesting products for their dogs, right? Maybe your dog has his eye on that heated dog house with the automatic feeders and satellite connection so he can watch his favorite episodes of "Scooby Doo.” OK, so that doesn’t really exist, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it did. What does exist, however, are four high-tech products for dogs and dog owners that were featured at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, as reported by Los Angeles Times.
1. Binatone Scout 500 Collar
New collars seem to come out at least once a year. While last year gave us one that could monitor our dog’s health, this year Binatone has made one that is the equivalent to a smartphone. You can talk to your dog and make sure he stays at home with its voice command feature, live video streaming and GPS tracking – all for a little less than $200.

This product is similar to the Binatone Scout 500 Collar in that it tracks your dog’s location. If he leaves the area you designate, you’ll receive an alert via text and email. Tagg also allows you to monitor your dog’s health and fitness (and set health and fitness goals), so you’ll know if your furry companion is just sitting around all day waiting for you to come home. The Tagg product is not a collar itself, but instead attaches to the collar your dog already wears.

3. PetCube Camera
Not all dogs mind being home alone. For those that need company, the PetCube Camera may be a solution. The device streams video and lets dog parents communicate with their pets through its microphone and speaker. The mobile app means all you need is a smartphone to spend time with your pup and friends and family can join in the fun. The PetCube Camera retails for $199.

Automatic feeders are great for dogs who are home alone while their pet parents are at work. It’s a way to monitor how much our pets are eating. The Petnet(io) goes a step beyond the basic automatic feeder and offers a personalized method of feeding your dog. Through the use of sensors and information you provide, this product seemingly understands your dog’s dietary needs and feeds him on a schedule with the appropriate portion sizes and dispensing speed. The schedule and dispensing of food can also be controlled remotely using your cell phone. The Petnet(io) feeder costs $249.
