Robot Dog? Now dogs aren’t safe from robots! The ‘Companionship’ provides and creates a pet for elderly adults that could be taking over!
“The toy company Hasbro has a new golden retriever robot designed to provide companionship to elderly adults. It’s the second companion robot pet from the company, following a robo-kitten last year.
Robotic companion pets have been around for over a decade, but the concept rose to popularity again this year after Paro, the robotic baby seal was developed.
Sony first came out with a robotic dog in Japan in 1999; by 2006, the company reported it had sold 150,000 units. Sony stopped providing support for the mechanical pet in 2014.
For its part, Hasbro’s robot puppy is fun to tease, but when you hug it, you can hear its servo motors and, eventually, you’ll have to replace Fido’s batteries. You can get your own robo-dog for $120.”, says Recode
At least you’ll still be able to use a Gencon dog head collar as they come in all different sizes! The Gencon® All-in-1 and Headcollars are made from soft yet durable fabric and are specifically designed not to pull up into your dog’s eyes or uncomfortably turn their head, making them the perfect lead training accessories for grown dogs and puppy walking. The Gencon consists of two simple loops that apply gentle pressure when your dog pulls, the lead gently but effectively stops your dog pulling forwards.
