If you are one of the thousand people that ended up adopting a pet during the pandemic and now you’re facing a challenge when it comes to leaving your furry friend behind while going back to the office, there may be a very interesting product waiting for you. We are talking about Companion, an AI device designed for dogs that comes with more features than other automatic pet feeders on the market. The stationary robot is designed to entertain, train, feed, and monitor the health of dogs.

Expected to launch in May 2024 for a $49 per month plan (with other purchase plans available later), the device is equipped with a camera, speaker, treat dispenser, and software that the company says can help train dogs. It is designed to monitor and entertain dogs with interactive games and basic obedience practice that adapts over time for continuous lifelong learning. Companion can also detect sudden or subtle changes in a dog’s movement or routine over time, offering warnings and alerts to possible conditions that could require early intervention.

This useful gadget can ease pet owners’ minds, offering a solution beyond what other traditional automatic pet feeders on the market have, making it an attractive option for those who do not want to hire a dog sitter. The $49-per-month plan includes the Companion device, access to an app and training modules for pets, personalized coaches, and access to special events.

Customers who reserve a spot can choose from Companion’s various plans before the device ships and can cancel and receive a full refund anytime after placing their deposit. According to founder and CEO John Honchariw, Companion is committed to giving humans a far greater understanding and a better relationship with the dogs they care deeply about.
