The PupPod device is a puzzle toy that is connected via an app to your smartphone. As your dog gets smarter this smart device, also gets smarter.
The game uses lights, sounds, and timing to increase difficulty. Sounds can be used for blind dogs and the lights for deaf dogs. Your pet earns treats from the feeder by touching the device at the correct time.
Games and challenges are simple at the start, but the difficulty increases so as to keep your dog motivated and thinking. Motion sensors are utilized in the beginning, as your pet is rewarded for sniffing the Puppod wobbler, but naturally, the challenges get harder.
Your pet is taught:
- Increased concentration
- To touch on cue

c) Encourage slow eating – which is healthier for your dog.
d) Increase concentration – through the mental stimulation that the device provides.
