A Silicone baking mould is perfect for any pet owner with a passion for baked goods. Try your hand at whipping up something for your fluffy friend. Find them at Woolworths.
Stay connected to your pet – and chat to them when you’re not there – with a pet camera. A great way to check in and ensure they’re not lonely, you can also see what they’re getting up to while you’re out. With some models, you can even toss treats to your pet remotely from your smart phone. Find them at JB Hifi, Kmart, or David Jones.

A Fitness Tracker is a good way to make sure your dog is getting enough exercise. If you’re serious about keeping your pet healthy, monitoring changes in sleep patterns and sharing useful information with your vet, look no fur-ther.
Does your dog have energy to burn? With an auto ball launcher, your pooch will always have someone to play catch with. This handy invention can even change the distance and angle the ball is thrown from, which makes it perfect for every backyard. Shop this gift at JB Hifi.
