CleverPet uses smart hardware to offer animals engagement anytime, automatically, whether their humans are home or not.

Started in 2013, CleverPet was founded by Leo Trottier (Clever Executive Officer), Dan Knudsen, PhD (Clever Science Officer, Clever Technology Officer), and Philip Meier, PhD (Clever Product Officer). CleverPet took root and continues to grow in San Diego, California. CleverPet's products use advanced cognitive and behavioral science techniques to develop elegant, durable technology solutions for the animals we share our lives with. In 2014, the CleverPet team led a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $180,000 for CleverPet's core product, the CleverPet Hub. The WiFi-connected Hub offers automatic, adaptive engagement for busy, happy dogs.
