Shiny Gadget of the Month – Halo

By June 7, 2021June 17th, 2021News

If you’re a dog owner you have probably taken your pooch with you somewhere that isn’t your home. Maybe it was to the beach, for a hike, over to a friend or family member’s house. One thing that can be a challenge is giving them the freedom to play or be off a leash. Like many people you fear that they could run off or worse, run into the street by accident. The Halo collar is here to put an end to all of that and give you peace of mind.

There are a lot of interesting pet gadgets out there, but few seem to be quite as unique as this one. The Halo smart collar is a single solution that brings with it a ton of features. Easily the coolest one is the smart fence. This lets you create a fence literally anywhere. At someone’s house without a fence? No problem. At the beach or camping in the woods? Consider it done. You can use the Halo app or take the collar and walk the perimeter to create a fence using top of the line GPS technology and the collar will do the rest. You can also customize the feedback the collar gives for your specific dog’s needs from sound, vibration, to static. You also get the ability to set a range for warnings to the fence limits and emergency range to stop them. Beyond the smart fence you have access to expert training, activity tracking, and GPS to always know where your dog is.

The tech is not even everything behind this gadget either. It was designed with Cesar Millan a renowned dog psychologist/trainer who helped develop the collar as well as training programs that go along with it. They even give you a 21-day program to follow to train your pup how to get used to and respond to the collar. To put any other fears at rest, you have tracking and notifications that work right on your phone. This way you can always know where your dog is, how active they have been, and know if any prevention measures have been taken by the collar to detect any possible problems or signs your dog is trying to leave the fence.

The only drawback really is the cost. With something so feature and tech rich it probably comes as no surprise they are not giving this away. However, you are getting a portable invisible fence that you can take with you anywhere and much more beyond that. Right now they have it listed at $999 on their website with financing options as well as a discount bringing it down to $799 with a promo code. For dog owners who are excited by the possibilities of this gadget this may not be a deal breaker. What do you think?
