How does the PetPace ‘posture’ feature work?
PetPace collars can identify the posture of stationary dogs. It can differentiate between standing, sitting, lying down on the right side, left side, back, or belly.
How can PetPace identify potential discomfort or pain in a dog? What do changes in posture mean for a dog’s well-being?
The graphs show the amount of time your dog spends in each particular posture, which you can use to identify preferences. Changes in preferences over time may indicate pain or discomfort.
PetPace also calculates a Posture Score, which measures the frequency of changes in posture (e.g. sitting down from standing).
How does the range for a healthy Posture Score on the PetPace app contribute to identifying potential health concerns in dogs?
The normal range for the Posture Score of healthy dogs is 570-2030 for a full day (24 hours). Higher scores could be related to restlessness, excitement, or agitation.
Lower scores may be seen in dogs with stiff joints or other mobility limitations.
