Mighty Paw Dog Smart Bell
If your dog loves to romp around outside, it can be a bit boring waiting for them to come indoors. Instead, you can set up the Mighty Paw. It’s a smart doorbell for your dog. All it takes is a quick boop of the nose to sound off just like a real doorbell. With this, your pet can let you know when they want to come inside. Or, you can use it in reverse so they can let you know when they need to go out.
