Most dog owners don’t just believe that their dogs are aware, they know it. Regardless of what others may say about dogs simply being just another species of animal, dog owners know that their dogs are sentient beings.
Dogs experience emotions that range from joy to sadness to anger and boredom. According to recent scientific studies, dogs have the capacity for over 100 vocabulary words of their human owner’s language. As for their intellectual capacity, they have what closely resembles that of a 2 and ½-year-old human child’s when they are full grown.
Puppod to the Rescue
If you are a dog owner who wants to give your dog the very best in life and you want to give this family member as enriched a life as possible, you will want to give him Puppod. This interactive toy device lets dogs have lots of fun all while getting a chance to learn at the same time.
The developers of this toy believe that dogs are smart but their toy options are not. With Puppod, the dog gets to play with the Puppod toy which alerts him or her when he has done the correct job and can go over to the treat dispenser device that comes with Puppod to get a snack.
Owners can relax at work knowing that while they are away they have Puppod to entertain and engage their dogs. They can use a mobile app to display videos of their dog enjoying playing with the toy. They can also get stats on how many treats the dog has had and set limits on the treat dispenser amounts remotely if they wish.
The treat dispenser can double as a meal dispenser. If you are going to be late coming home from your job you can fill your dog’s Puppod treat dispenser with kibble so that he or she can enjoy a meal before you get home.
Tests Have Been Very Positive

The dog has to be able to look at the two eyes on the Puppod and when that happens, an alert sounds indicating that it is time to get a treat from the dispenser.
