Garmin has a dog activity tracker which could stop barking!

Garmin has a lot of experience with activity tracking and now it's ready to move into a new area with canine products.

Delta Smart is a new range which starts with a unit that's attached to your dog's collar. It will take note of what they get up when you're not there and show how energetic they've been throughout the day.

On top of that you can use the included app to train your dog. This means things like the device making a tone or vibration whenever it hears your dog barking. You can also get special tags to place around the house that will detect your pooch and can stop them from going into areas where they shouldn't.

There's also a setting for 'stimulation' which we're reading as a small electic shock. Doesn't this all seem a bit cruel? You haven't got the time or interest to try to train your dog yourself so you're going to let an app electro-shock your animal if it happens to walk by a place you don't like.

What if one of the tags is misplaced, or someone puts it in their bed as a joke? Garmin has likely done plenty of testing to make sure that these things aren't too traumatic but it's hard to see pet lovers really getting involved in the training element.
