Dog Caller®

Many dogs have died from heatstroke in recent years due to unforeseen factors like home air conditioners breaking down from power failures. Dogs can’t let you know when they’re in danger. Especially when you’re not with them. The Dog Caller® contacts your phone if your pet is in danger of heat exhaustion. We're pleased to announce that The Dog Caller® is fully functional, and we are working with designers and manufacturers as well as looking to crowd-fund the final product with the end goal of having it available across North America. We hope to have The Dog Caller® available in the new year!
