If you do not have time to play with your pet and keep it active, and prefer to let a robot take care of the task, here is Varram.
The idea was born after checking some scary numbers: 56% of dogs and 60% of cats are diagnosed with clinical overweight, which reduces their life expectancy.
VARRAM Pet Fitness Robot is in indiegogo, and has already managed to multiply by five the value they were asking to make it happen. It has a reward system to move the pet, five stimuli based on artificial intelligence, system that avoids obstacles automatically, remote control through the application … all with an FDA-approved material for pets.
They also treat anxiety. They tell us that dogs can urinate, defecate, bark, howl, chew, dig or try to escape when they know they will separate from their owners. Separation anxiety almost always occurs within the first 20 minutes after leaving a dog alone. Leaving a toy with prizes, treats and puzzles that take up to 30 minutes to complete can help prevent separation anxiety, while reducing the risk of accidents and disorder.
From the mobile we can verify the level of activity of the pet at any time and in any place, since the app allows full control. We can also interact with friends who have pets with similar ages and races, allowing us to share and compare data. By using the application, we can control the robot manually or customize the actions by programming them according to the personality of the pet.
