Top 100 Pet Trends of 2015

From Self-Cleaning Litter Boxes to Treat-Dispensing Pet Cameras

— December 29, 2015 — Lifestyle
Using new technology to improve the lives of domestic animals is a common theme when it comes to the top 2015 pet trends. Although the idea of owing a pet is nothing new, technological advancements have made it easier than ever before for consumers to keep their creatures happy and healthy.

Owning a dog, cat or other pet is a major responsibility that involves a great deal of time and effort. As the top 2015 pet trends reveal, a number of companies are trying to help busy professionals manage the demands of owning a pet by making use of new technology. These advancements include everything from self-cleaning litter boxes to automated pet feeders. These high-tech devices not only ensure that pets are well cared for when their owners are out of the house, but they also give consumers more flexibility when it comes to pet ownership.

Check out Trend Hunter's 2016 Trend Report to find out more about how pet trends will impact the coming year.
