The wave of guilt when professionals are away from home and reflect on their bored animal companions. Such a familiar feeling. Well, Reach-in has created a way out of that emotional hell, for both the professional and the animal companion.
MASHABLE reports that Reach-in's new product iPet allows toys to be remotely activated to create some stimulation for Fido and Muffy. Animal shelters already have been using it and now it's available for homes. But it isn't cheap. The dog version costs $395, plus postage and cat one $349.95, plus postage. The monthly maintenance fee is $4.95.
This might be just-the-right client gift for professionals who travel. No slouch when it comes to human touch points with clients and prospects, I have observed the pull force a common interest in our animal companions has. Several weeks ago a client and I were on our way to call upon one of his clients. The relationship was tense because of the usual: Client thought my billing was too high. I thought it was too low.
The tension vanished when we began discussing the health challenges of our older animal companions.
