HOW FIT IS THE BUTCHER’S DOG?

Have you ever wondered how far your dog walks each day or how many calories they burn? No? Neither have we, but someone has and they’ve created the Petfit, a wearable fitness tracker for dogs.

It’s actually more useful that we may have led you to believe. The smart collar helps you make sure you’re keeping your dog healthy, which is pretty handy considering how many of us have dogs that gets left at home while we’re at work.

In fact, Petfit reckons that using it to make sure your dog stays active could extend its life expectancy by a whopping 20%. With that sort of benefit for man’s best friend, Petfit should be at the top of every dog’s Christmas list.

When you first get Petfit, it asks you to input your dog’s basic information, like breed and weight. It then works out how much exercise your dog should be getting and how much they should weigh.Then, when your dog’s wearing Petfit, it tracks how long they rest for and how active they are, breaking it down into walking, running and playing.

You can easily see on the app if you should be taking your dog out for longer walks or if they’re just as active as they need to be.

More and more of us are strapping fitness trackers to our wrists to make sure we’re staying healthy, but would you do the same to your dog? Let us know in the comments below.
