Would You Spend $140 On This Interactive Gaming Device for Dogs?

As an extremely devoted dog mom, there are a LOT of things I will happily spend my money on for Daisy, but today I spotted something that made me do a double-take.

It’s this Wickedbone Interactive Smart Toy for Dogs. The list price is $160 but you can get it on Amazon for $139.99 w/ free shipping.

Now I’m a big fan of electronic gadgets. I LOVE my Roomba, have a Kuvings Cold Press Slow Juicer I use daily, rely on a pet camera like this one, and dare anyone to try and take away my Instant Pot!

That said, I’m just not sure how I feel about spending $140 on an electronic dog toy. First, I know how hard most dogs are on their toys. Would it even hold up? And I know that Daisy often loses interest in a new toy after a few days. Wobble Wag Giggle Ball I’m looking at you!

Here’s the description from the manufacturer:

Dogs love bones, but conventional bones are overrated. They quickly evaporate in a dog’s mouth, and they often cause gastric problems and one big mess, without offering any interaction or playing opportunities. Now meet Wickedbone, a bone-shaped interactive gaming device that performs like a truly smart, fun and excitingly wicked companion of your dog.

The Wickedbone is fully interactive. It can react to different actions of your dog with built-in emotional system. When your dog runs, Wickedbone runs after it; when your dog chases it, it turns around and runs away, making Wickedbone react in different and very engaging modes.

Wickedbone has been designed to be as safe, soft and strong as your dog needs it to be. Made of Polycarbonate, it feels sufficiently soft when your dog catches it. The material of the body, cover, and the tires are safe for humans and pets.

Here’s a video demonstration for the Wickedbone Smart Dog Toy:

While it does look fun and interesting, the jury is still out on this one for me. It would definitely make a cool gift idea for the dog who has everything! What do you think?

    i dont think i would pay this much for a dog toy. my dog toys dont last long now. some dont even make it through the first day. i like the idea of it. another thing i would be concerned about is how hard is the bone, if the dog bit down on it, would it crack or would it hurt the dog’s teeth. if i had money to burn maybe i would get it.
