GoBone – the world’s first app-enabled smart bone for dogs – has gone on sale in the US, helping owners keep an eye on their pets remotely.
Included on Oprah’s Favorite Things List 2017, the dog toy was designed with both pet parents and their beloved pups in mind, automatically keeping dogs active and engaged when their owners are busy, and opening up a new world of playtime pursuits when they’re together.
“Give a dog a better bone. The GoBone automatically keeps a pup rolling around, chasing, and being chased, all at the touch of an app,” explains Oprah in the December edition of her magazine O.
In Auto Play mode, GoBone flips, zips, and zooms around the floor on its own, enticing a dog to race around the house in pursuit. Customised for a pup’s age, weight, breed, and style of play, GoBone can be chased, chewed, tossed, and even stuffed with treats, and it’s equipped with a rechargeable battery to deliver up to eight hours of play in Auto Play mode. When owner and dog want to enjoy playtime together, GoBone connects to a smartphone via the free GoBone App, transforming it into a remote-controlled gaming device that allows for up to 30 minutes of continuous fun on a single battery charge.
“I created GoBone to give my dog, Rufus, opportunities for exercise and enjoyment even when I’m busy,” said Texan inventor Santiago Gutierrez. “I feel better knowing Rufus is entertained no matter what’s going on in my life, and I love having new ways to bond and interact with him when we play.”
GoBone is available on Amazon.
