Now Missy is almost never left on her own but some fluffs have working parents or can't go along on an outing.

Technology advancements  thumbsup  to the rescue   clapping  especially for furpups that love video as much as Missy does. 

You can check it out  HERE

Interesting,I'm sure it could be useful for some dogs.

But,it would be Abby's idea of h*ll being able to see and hear me and not be able to reach me.Alison

Ditto, what Alison said. That said, Pepper has to be crated when we are gone, as he gets quite anxious if he isn't.  He, also, does not watch TV unless there is a dog making a noise or barking.

That is really neat!  I don't know if dogs can see that little of a picture tho.  I use to call and leave a message on my answering machine just so Bullett could hear my voice.  K

That is really cool!  thumbsup
Like Kate said I doubt that a dog could actually see the person, but surely they would recognise the voice, and in the case of Lia she would learn the routine lickedy split as she is very food motivaed!!!   hungry Ding a ling, ding a ling, hi Lia, this is mommy, would you like a treat? Yes please!  dog-run She would learn to run to that box after a second try.   Laughing

Darwin, the anxious nutter, wouldn't care for that, I'm afraid. He does absolutely fine if we all leave and it's quiet here- he'll just sleep happily. What he can't tolerate is the in between- ie noise, voices, but he can't interact.

Mine would so love this- especially Noah with his  loveword2: for food.  Afraid that Roxie and Z would never get a treat with him guarding the box.  In fact, he might try to get in it to get more treats.  I love the idea, but it is a little pricey for me.  Will see the reviews after it is made available.  I am sure that it will end up on Amazon.

I think the biggest obstacle to success of this product is the fact that the treats have special shapes and are available from only one place.  There is a caution that using one's own treats could damage the product or void the warranty.   thumbdown

They need to realize that the people who are most likely to buy this product are also the most likely to be quite selective as to what treats their furpups get.

Cool idea, but agree with Alison, kinda confusing for the little doggy to hear/see but can't reach me.

I doubt Bokie would be able to see me on the little screen, we tried Facetime her when we were on a trip, she tilted her head when she heard us but never look at the iPad.
