Psychologists have long understood how important it is for us humans to have pets around the house to talk to. Elderly people and others that live alone have been shown to live happier, longer and healthier lives when they have a dog or cat that they can take care of and talk to throughout the day. Now, research is also showing how important it is for dogs to hear your voice and listen to your words every so often all day long.
As we go through our lives there are plenty of distractions to keep us occupied like work, family, vacations, and relationships, but if you have a dog you love, you know it will be right by the door waiting for you when you get home.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could talk to your dog, anytime during the day when you’re feeling like you need a happy smiling face? Well, there is now a product called Icpooch that can do just that, your dog’s big grin is as close as your iPhone or computer anytime you need a pick-me-up, and your dog will appreciate it too.
Remember, you don’t need any specific reason to call your furry friend several times per day, but if it makes you feel better, do it for your dog and his good health, you’ll feel better too, and you’ll work better and be happier all with just a phone call.
This amazing product was invented by a young teenager that originally sought financing through an Icpooch Kickstarter program. It gives the away-from-home pet owner the opportunity to get two-way face time with their dog anytime and from anywhere with just a phone call.
The cool thing about this product is that not only can you see and hear your dog, your dog can see and hear you as well. Then, when the conversation is over, you can dispense a treat from the Icpooch dispenser. It actually looks similar to a large Pez dispenser and it holds a tablet computer or iPhone in its adjustable brackets that serve as the speaker, microphone, and video deliverer.
The dispenser in the Icpooch is adjustable to deliver large doggy treats, medium sized treats and even has stackable tiny bowls that can hold kibble treats too. You’ll be able to see your dog receive the treats almost instantly when you hit the button.
Brooke originally began thinking of the Icpooch because her own dog was suffering from separation anxiety and needed to hear her comforting voice to settle down. She started her Icpooch Kickstarter campaign and realized there was a huge demand for the product due to the millions of humans suffering from separation anxiety from their pets.
Now, with the Icpooch widely available online and at pet stores around the country, millions of pet owners are able to do their jobs at work and not worry all day long about their pooch. At the same time, Fido gets a little emotional boost several times a day while providing emotional comfort to his human.
While growing up with cats and dogs, I discovered I am good at understanding how these wonderful companions feel. My first pocket money was spent on pet toys, and I majored in animal behavioral science. My specialty was how dogs develop intelligence by playing. So if you feel your dog is not that smart, I might be able to help. My pets have helped me stay aware, committed, and down-to-earth. It’s my mission to help pets and owners be more connected and happy.
