4/16 – Happy Day-After Tax Day! (ruff!) Today: SmartMat inventor, leash walking and more!

Check out Andrew Clark’s invention called the SmartMat.  It sends you an alert to tell you when your dog is standing on it…by the door.  I’ll talk with Andrew today to hear his ideas about how this technology can be applied to help dogs and their owners in real life.
