Keeping Pets Fit, Active & Healthy with PetSafe Canada & Giveaway!

If you follow us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, you’re probably aware that we’ve packed up and moved to the country. You can catch up by heading over and reading our last post Moving Long Distance with Pugs and a Cat.

Oh yes, we moved to the country with wide open fields, trees aplenty, calm and quiet, no more dealing with rush “hour” traffic that actually lasts 24 hours!

But you know what else the country has?

Snow. Let me correct myself. We have SNOW.

I’m not talking about the few centimetres of snow I complained about while living in the city. I’m talking about snow so deep I can’t walk through those wide open fields because most likely, I wouldn’t be found until spring thaw 😉

Yes, the snow is beautiful to look at – from inside a warm cozy home, but what about my dogs?

What about them you ask?

This is a sponsored post on behalf of PetSafe Canada. I only share products that I would use for my own pets, myself, or I believe would be of interest to my readers.

Keeping Pets Fit, Active & Healthy with PetSafe Canada

Having to restrict my dogs to the amount of time they can spend outdoors due to extreme snow and cold has at times been a challenge. Yes, even for pugs, who are well known for their love of chilling out, there comes a time when even they need to burn off pent up energy and find ways to challenge their minds. Our friends at PetSafe Canada understood my challenge, and have introduced products that will get our dogs not only physically active, but mentally stimulated during the long Canadian winter months. 

Ricochet Electronic Dog Toy

With the PetSafe Ricochet Electronic Dog Toy, my dogs Edie and Edna were sure to have a blast, keep busy, burn off energy, and stimulate their minds!

Entertaining for All!

I think I was entertained just as much watching and laughing at the dogs playing and interacting with the Ricochet Electronic Dog Toy. 

Ricochet Toy Features

Two toys in one! That should keep me busy!

The Ricochet electronic pet toy from PetSafe Canada is an interactive paired toy with a “hide and squeak” surprise sound. When your dog plays with one of the two paired toys, it interacts with the other toy, making a squeak sound from up to 30 feet away!

No Stuffing: Not to name names here, but one of my dogs (Edna) may like to pull the stuffing out of her toys, but not to worry, the Ricochet dog toy has no stuffing to pull out, or fabric to tear off. 

Long Lasting: The Ricochet Dog Toy is battery operated, and lasts up to a month of daily use and will turn off after 60 minutes.

Availability: PetSafe Canada’s products and toys, are easily available through top pet retailers and online retailers. You can view the complete line of products on the PetSafe site and follow them on Facebook at PetSafe Canada

Let’s not forget about our cats! It’s just as important for our cats to stay fit and healthy too!

Cats Need to Stay Fit and Healthy Too!

As much as our cat Lloyd is quite content to lounge on a bed or by the fireplace during the snowy cold days, it’s just as important for him to keep fit, happy and healthy too.

Knowing our cat Lloyd is a lover of food, PetSafe Canada has made it SO easy for me to control, monitor and schedule feedings all with the ease of an app on my Smartphone.

With a PetSafe Smart Feed Automatic Pet Feeder, that means no more 5:00am wake up calls requesting/demanding breakfast! Something I’m sure many cat parents can relate to.

PetSafe Smart Feed Automatic Dog and Cat Feeder 

Features:

Multiple Feeding Schedules: One of my favourite features of the Smart Feed Automatic Pet Feeder is being able to schedule feeds up to 12 times a day. This allows my cat Lloyd to eat several smaller meals throughout the day and night.

Slow Feed Setting: Have a pet that likes to devour their food? You can use the optional Slow Feed setting that dispenses meals in smaller amounts over 15 minutes.

Control the Amount of Food Dispensed: The Smart Feed Automatic Feeder allows control of amount of food dispensed, from as little as 1/8 cup, to as much as 4 cups per meal for larger dogs.

Control Your Pet’s Meals From Your Smartphone! From the comfort and ease of your Smartphone, the Smart Feed Automatic Feeder allows you to control your pet’s meals and/or serve a meal on-demand.

Alerts Direct to your Smartphone: Can’t remember if you’ve topped up your pet’s feeder? No more wondering! If your pet’s feeder is low or empty, you can receive alerts and get notified all from the app on your smartphone.

Large Capacity: The Smart Feed Automatic Pet Feeder holds 24 cups of dry food.

  1. My cats seem to want to eat more often for some reason so this would help on days I cannot be home to give them a mid day meal.

  2. My cat is slightly overweight and needs some good ol’ portion control! Problem is, he thinks that whenever I’m not home he’ll starve to death so he tries to portion out his own food. This means that sometimes he gobbles ALL his food up at once, other times he won’t eat for hours thinking he’s going to starve without me. Would love to have an automatic feeder so I can help his lose weight + he won’t feel like he always needs me to eat.

  3. AJ the cat wouldn’t have to worry about me running late and forgetting about him!

  4. This would help out tremendously if I am running late because I have 3 mouths to feed but all eat from the same bowl at the same time.

  5. My cats could use some better portion control with their food and this would be great to help with this! I’d love to be able to release smaller amounts of food throughout the day instead of filling the bowl in the morning or night – my tabby tends to gobble up whatever is there, while my youngest then gets the dregs if we are not home to monitor.

  6. Interesting post. I am especially interested in learning about the automatic feeder in relation to our diabetic cat. He would LOVE to eat 24 hours a day, but now must have scheduled feedings to correspond with his insulin. He gobbles the food down at such a rate that it compares to our food greedy dachshunds. I am wondering it this automatic feeder might slow it down.

    • Our cat Lloyd would also eat 24 hours a day if given the chance! The Automatic feeder gives me control over when he eats, and how much he eats. For cats and dogs that tend to gobble down their food, the slow feature helps by dispensing food over a period of time, rather than all at once.

  7. This would be prefect for us. Sometimes my husband feeds the dog in the morning before he leaves but then if I see the dish empty when I get in the kitchen I find the dog again.

  8. My daughter could use this for her cats she works in the film industry so a lot of crazy long hours for her.

  9. Would be able to monitor his snacks! Thanks

  10. if food is out he will it it all immediately, this would allow me to let him eat a bit throughout the day

  11. I’d love this automatic feeder for our fosters!! We don’t have own own full time dog but hubby’s compromise is fostering – we are in foster #22 in 3.5 years! Love he smartphone notification – some days I can’t remember if I fed them
    Or not so feed again…and pretty sure some of those times it’s a 2nd breakfast

    • Foster #22 Amazing! I would love to hear more about your story!
      It’s more common than you think for a pet to be fed multiple meals, especially when more than one person is responsible for feeding. With the Smart Automatic Pet Feeder from PetSafe Canada, the guess work of wondering if a kitty or dog has already been fed is taken away. As much as cats and dogs would be disappointed by this 😉 this feeder gives you meal control and is healthier for pets.

  12. This would make such a useful gift for my sister who travels frequently. She does have a pet sitter who comes by to check in on her cat, but this invention would make life a little easier for peace of mind & the health of her kitty!

  13. We need one of these because our cat eats everything in his bowl at one time and never leaves any food, and when we are gone all day then he only gets to eat once.

  14. I would love this so that I feed my puppy the most appropriate amount daily.

  15. Our pup eats her food really fast and we have no easy way of slowing her down. This automatic feeder would really help with this.

    • The slow feed option on the Smart Feed Automatic feeder could be just what your pup needs to eat meals slower

  16. this would be wonderful so my cat could be left overnight without worrying about her food all in one go

  17. Our dog Stu has a very sensitive stomach and if he goes too long between meals he gets sick to his stomach. This would be great for those times that we are out and cannot make it back in time for his next meal.

    • This might be just the answer for Stu!

  18. I would love this for my cat because that way I can feed her even when I’m not home

  19. Being away sometimes and controlling it by an app would be a great benifit here!

  20. My cat has a voracious appetite and sometimes eats so much and so fast that she can’t keep it all down. I try to spread out her food throughout the day. This feeder would be wonderful for those days that I’m not at home with her.

  21. We have five cats, and three areas that we feed them in, having this, would be really helpful. One of our cats is feral she is pretty protective of her food area, I wonder if she would love this in her area.

  22. no more stale food

  23. I work shift work and my pore pup never gets fed at the same time. Breakfast can be anytime between 4am to 10am and dinner is anytime between 3pm and 10pm. I always feel so bad. This would make us both much happier. As well, my fur baby gobbles down her food so quick that she throws it all back up. So we have to feed her small amounts at a time. I LOVE the feature of being able to set multiple times in small portions or even better feature is the Slow Feed Setting. Looks like this was designed with peole like me in mind. Looks like a great product. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for the chance.

    • The Smart Feeder is wonderful for pets who love to gobble down their meals! With the Slow Feed setting, it can help slow them down.

  24. Wonderful to not have to worry about being home at feeding time, but of course you want. But sometimes life keeps you busy!

  25. I do shift work, sometimes with over-time, so this would ensure that my pup would get the food he needs.

    • The Smart Automatic Feeder would be a great addition for pet parents that work shift or long hours!

  26. ok , so there are five cats here, ones mine, fluffy butt, he’s been here the longest. There are also 3 females here, who were born here, and then moved around a bit as they are my sons. He’s in the city now and he prefered that they stay in the small town I am in so that they get to go outdoors. There is also a new edition, he came last yr, he’s orange, a bit dumb and he refuses to come to any name (Well I call him big and dumb) He’s the last of the rescues. They all are a bit spoiled… we’ve got cat trees everywhere

  27. Well, this brings me back to the comment I made a few weeks ago where I said it was nice to be woken up by our hungry cat each day at 6am….lol. I’d love to try this and see if it helps to adjust his schedule a bit. Thanks so much for the chance.

    • The PetSafe Smart Automatic Feeder has done wonders for our sleep schedule lol!

  28. my big mama will meow in my face and sit on my pillow at 6am to get up and feed her… this would benefit me not her! lol she eats enough haha

    • I’m beginning to see a pattern that the PetSafe Smart Automatic Feeder is just as beneficial to the humans lol!

  29. My (now only 3) cats and I would greatly benefit from a Smart Feed Automatic Pet Feeder so that I could schedule all the feedings as well the amount of the feedings. Josie is severely overweight because she is always eating and even cleaning up after the others so giving her set, rationed servings would help her. As for me, I am extremely tired of being woken up at 5 am to feed them so I definitely would have less bags under my eyes. It would be a win for us all.

  30. I am going to look for this toy! I can see it would stimulate Fritzi to move around more!

  32. This would be great for when I go out and cannot get home until later. the peace of mind knowing i can feed my cat from my phone is amazing. i love that there are alerts as well. very helpful.

    • The feature of being able to feed you pet, even when not at home, is definitely a bonus!

  33. This is a great idea. I cannot always take my Suzy with me and I cannot leave food out as she will eat it all in a few minutes. Being able to feed her with my smartphone

  34. Being able to feed them from an app is perfect for me when I have to work late and I don’t like to leave food out all day

  35. My single furry monster Sghetti is the gobbler. The rest eat a bit and walk away. Sghetti (who lived on the streets until i found him) eats like it is his last meal. the slow feed method would be great for him
