What is Dogineering™? We coined that term to describe our obsessive desire to engineer new cool pet tech stuff for dogs. But, we don't want to keep all the fun to ourselves (we're not resource guarders) So, with Pet Tutor Open Architecture, inventors and makers can create custom applications or entirely new commercial products using our patented smart dispenser! If you are: an engineer, programmer or Maker this section is for you!

On this page are a few examples of the innovative applications our users have created to take advantage of the Pet Tutor® Open Architecture.  This means anyone with a little knowledge of programming can create their own device or software that uses the Pet Tutor® smart dispenser to deliver a treat wirelessly.

BluetoothNo royalty or up front fees! Access to our dispenser interface (Bluetooth®4.0) is free and very easy to use.  Also, our User Group is a collection of top animal trainers and technology experts where great ideas are shared.

So, we hope this may spark some ideas of your own!
