DogTelligent CEO and creator of the Connected Collar, Patrick Perrine, is a seasoned entrepreneur. Seeking to create innovative products to enhance quality of life not only for people, but for their companions as well, Perrine notes that his inspiration for the Connected Collar is due to his lifelong relationship with man's best friend, dogs. The DogTelligent team combines beautifully designed dog products with technology that makes a difference for dogs and their owners, solving everyday pet parent frustrations. Perrine's dog Riley proudly serves as DogTelligent's company barksperson and is the star of the Connected Collar cartoon series.
"Since Riley is such an important part of my daily routine, it was natural for me to look at what I found frustrating about being a dog owner," says Perrine. "One by one, I came up with solutions to the numerous problems fellow dog owners face and in the process, realized that by monitoring a dog's behavior, I would be better able to keep him safe and provide the right amount of exercise and sleep time. In other words, Riley would be a happier, healthier dog."
