If you have been reading this blog (and if you haven’t, you really should) you would know by now that I am big on responsibility.
If you own a pet or thinking about owning one, responsibility should be the first word in your vocabulary. And nothing gets more important then not leaving your dog in a hot car.
Dogs can become overheated in as little as 4 minutes, you know.
So it’s interesting to see a marketing agency come up with a prototype collar which is meant to alert their owner of their dog overheating.
It works in 5 simple steps:
- You buy the heat-sensing collar and fit it to your dog.
- You buy the battery for the heat-sensing collar and keep it charged.
- You buy a phone card for your heat-sensing collar and keep the credit topped up.
- You program your heat-sensing collar to send a message to your phone if your dog overheats.
- The heat-sensing collar sends the message as soon as your dog overheats.
Simple really. Only a marketing agency could think of such an ingeniously convoluted device.
Or you could just make sure your dog is never left alone in a hot car.
See? Wasn’t that easy? File that one next to ‘feed my dog at least once a day’ and ‘don’t feed my dog rat poison.’
And the great thing is – you don’t even need to buy a phone card to do that. You can tell I am a Veterinarian and not a marketing guru, can’t you.
