Pet owners worried about leaving their dogs at home indoors all day can now feel less guilty - by buying a robot that exercises them while they are at work. The Smart Pet Robot 'plays' with the animal, encouraging it to be chased around the home and offering treats as a reward for the pet doing exercise.
The £75 device - which launches in the UK from next month (February) is designed with sensors so it turns automatically before it hits an obstacle, and can last up to ten hours before it needs re-charging. It can be controlled manually using a smartphone app, or can be customised to automatically turn on and move around when the owner sets it to. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
