I dream, I dream a lot. As Walt Disney famously said, “If you can dream it, you can do it”. Some of us dream on starting a business or creating an innovative product but may face the challenge of not having enough money to start your adventure.

Kickstarter, a pioneer of the crowdfunding platform, has helped people raise over $1.6 billion USD and fund over 80,000 projects. I can easily spend tons of time on the Kickstarter website viewing the different projects people hope to turn from a dream to reality.

On my recent journey through Kickstarter, I found some great inventions for pet owners. It is incredible how creative the projects can be.

1. Smart Dog Tracker

With this innovative device you will be able to know how your dog is when you are not with him. It is like having a video camera following him everywhere. This dog tracker can be easily adapted to any dog collar.

This device is amazing, it will enhance your furry friend’s health as well as reduce stress and ensure sleep. It will alert you when to take your dog to the veterinarian. All you need to do is pair the tracker with your device an iPhone or Android.

Cost: A minimum pledge of $119. Through the Kickstarter platform, the creators Jagger & Lewis raised over $56,000 to take their project from a dream to a reality.

2. Catspad

This is another great and creative project that was released this year. Definitely, imagination has no limits and if you work hard for your dreams you will see it pays off. This is the case for Julie Leleu from France who wanted to create a smart bluetooth cat food dispenser.

Worried your cat eats too much? This invention is your perfect solution.

You can store one month of cat food in this dispenser where you feed your cat the right amount of food and water they need each day. It has a pump with a filter that eliminates tastes and odors, things that may bother your cat.

With your mobile device you can monitor your cat’s food and water consumption as well as will provide each cat in your household with the right amount of food based on the cat’s weight and health.

Cost: $334 USD – Catspad almost triples its pledge goal amount of $34,000 USD by raising so far $98,000 USD to make this project a reality.

3. An Ergonomic Pet Carrier

Nothing like traveling comfortably and relaxed. Imagine yourself travelling in spacious airplane seats where you can move without the person sitting next to you.

Luliaa Luvchenko and her friends from England, have created WAUL, the World’s First Ergonomic Pet Carrier.

Sounds fancy, right? This innovative project was born with the idea of improving the quality of the pets’ transportation around the world. WAUL was born with the vision to improve the quality of pets’ transportation around the world. WAUL is the world’s first ergonomic carrier.

This pet carrier works for small dogs and cats. WAUL’s inventors expected to raise through Kickstarter a total of $3,000 Euros or around $3,360 USD to make their project a reality. They didn’t imagine raising a total so far of $11,290 Euros or $12,640 USD.

Cost: $29 Euros or $32 USD with an estimated delivery of October 2017. Not a bad price for a very creative pet carrier.

4. Dog Bathrobe

A dog bathrobe? How can this get any cuter? I would love one of these as every time I give my dog a bath, he runs all over the house dripping water.

Shari Mindlen, from the U.S., came up with the Dripping Dog Bathrobe after thinking of a better way of drying her dogs instead of using a towel which ended up very wet and didn’t helped much.

On her Kickstarter campaign page, she says that all the money she raises from her original and innovative product, will be donated to a local animal shelter.

Cost: A pledge of $25 or more. Shari’s pledge goal was of $7,200 USD and so far she has raised $7,600.

5. A Reliable Pet Sitter

Where have you seen a robot pet sitter? I remember seeing robots on one of my favorite shows “The Jetsons”. Time has flown after my first time seeing this show and now robots are seen in many places. For example you don’t need to vacuum, as there is a robot who can do that for you.

This smart ball will play with your dog all day and ensure he is never alone. Pebby will entertain your best friend for hours. You can entertain and monitor your dog by using your cellphone anywhere you go. You can download the Pebby app on iTunes or Google Play.

Their Kickstarter pledge goal originally was of $50,000 USD. They have raised the whopping amount so far of $509,227!!!
