Dogmeter app improves canine fitness
We Americans really love our pets. According to some statistics, we’ll spend upwards of $50.84 billion on them in 2011. So it makes perfect sense for that Abvio, developer of Runmeter, Cyclemeter and Walkmeter, announced today the availability of Dogmeter. This canine-friendly app is no joke.
In the efforts to stem pet obesity and help our furry friends live longer, Dogmeter uses GPS to track your dogs fitness, how far they’ve run, pace and calories burned. You can use Twitter or Facebook to give remote commands to your dog, and, new Text-To-Bark technology commands him in his own language. Commands include ‘Bombs Away”, ‘‘OMG Don’t Eat THAT!” or “Drop That Bird!”
The app is great for any breed, so if you have a Terrier, Bulldog or a Retriever Abvio invites you to try out out Dogmeter and take control of your dog’s fitness.
“Abvio created a wonderful application for people, but by adapting it for the world’s dogs, they can help man’s best friend have longer active lives,” said Bassett Shepard, professional dog trainer. “Never before have dog trainers been able to measure real results of dog exercise, and use Text-To-Bark technology to command the pack.”
Abvio’s applications have been known for their ability to provide audio feedback to runners, cyclists, and walkers, and now dogs can benefit. Dogmeter’s Text-To-Bark technology uses recent discoveries in dog linguistics to transform commands such as “Stop” into the fundamental phonemes of dog language. Studies have shown this technology to be twice as effective in causing immediate obedience. By setting up a Twitter or Facebook account for your dog, any tweet or posts that you make are communicated directly to your dog.
