Have you ever seen those annoying traveling alarm clocks? No? You’re really missing out. I don’t recommend getting one yourself. But buying your teenager (who can sleep like the dead) one of these is a hoot.

The premise is once the alarm goes off, it keeps going off. And you can’t hit the snooze button because the clock’s on wheels, and you have to catch it first. By the time you’ve managed to catch it, you’re so annoyed you won’t be going back to bed.

The Owl Robot is just like that. Except, it’s for your dog and leaves a trail of treats for your dog. There’s an app (iOS and Android) for remote control driving. Or to play hide and seek. It will entertain your dog. And you. It will entertain you when you’re supposed to be working.

It has infrared sensing so it can interact or run away from your pet. You can program it to drive automatically at specific points of the day.

It uses an HD Camera and night vision, with 4x optical zoom. You can save high-quality photos or videos by using an SD card. The SD card is not included, so that’s an extra cost. It does have 2-way auto so you can talk to your best friend. It also reacts if it’s touched. By reacting, I mean it runs away from you or your dog.

It does have a great battery built-in that will last 8-10 hours of cruising. That’s roughly two weeks, assuming it’s active for around 30 mins every day. Sadly, it’s not yet compatible with 5G wifi, so you need to use the 2.4G wireless in your home. It does work with 5G wireless cell phones, tho.

The Owl Robot can detect when you’re dog has had enough and gone for a nap. The Owl will take a rest too. When you’re dog wakes up, the Owl will wake up and start playing again.

It also flips, spins, and shakes for a full-featured adventure. The designers have placed things like sensors, cameras, and treat dispenser resembling a face. So while it’s slightly creepy, it’s also hilarious.

With crash prevention, cruise control, and the ability to spin on a dime, this toy is more advanced than the car I drive.

The manufacturer does state that it’s not bite-resistant, but I’ve found it to be pretty durable. The wheels can handle the carpet in my house.

Overall, it’s pricey but a very awesome toy. It’s given my Lucy hours of enjoyment. Plus, it entertains my toddler too. I’m not positive, but I think the toddler likes it more than the dog.
