CleverPet smartens your pets while you are away

Coming out of nowhere comes a new device to help your dogs cognitive functions. It is called CleverPet, and what is CleverPet? It is a learning console that engages and teaches your dog. It uses scientifically proven techniques to offer interactions that adapt to individual dogs’ needs. These interactions grow more challenging as your dog learns, and can take place even when you can’t be home. Many dogs left alone at home are bored and unengaged, which can lead to separation anxiety and costly destructive behavior. With CleverPet, your dog is busy, engaged, and challenged at her learning level—automatically. A busy dog is a happy dog, and a busy, happy dog has no time for negative behavior.

The CleverPet uses cutting-edge algorithms based on behavioral science to reward your dog when she learns something new. The device has three sensitive touch pads, which light up interactively and are designed for your dog’s nose or paw. Your pet will win food for touching the pads on the device. CleverPet's software is constantly adapting to your pet, and you can always see how she is doing in real time.

It doesn't stop there. It certainly isn't as easy as just stepping on the correct pad. No CleverPet learns and you can even adjust the CleverPet for higher difficulty. You can also check out the exclusive interview I did with the creators of CleverPet on my YouTube channel.

Once your dog masters the third level, she is ready for the bigger challenges that CleverPet can provide. Your dog will have a huge variety of interactive games to try out. Imagine "Lumosity for dogs." And because the CleverPet adjusts levels in real time, based on your pet's performance, it's never too easy or too hard.

CleverPet completely transforms your pet’s experience of being home alone. It's a device that feeds your dog while she engages with it and learns. And we even make it easy for you keep track of when your pet plays and eats. The CleverPet uses cutting-edge algorithms based on behavioral science to reward your dog when she learns something new. The device has three sensitive touch pads, which light up interactively and are designed for your dog’s nose or paw. Your pet will win food for touching the pads on the device.

These are just a few of the level 4+ games you could teach your dog ... what other games could you teach your pet?

The best part is that all of this happens while you're out of the house. Instead of anxiously waiting for family members to come back, your dog is busy playing, learning, and eating gradually over the course of the day.

WAIT, REALLY?!

Yes. With CleverPet, you can give your dog a better day at home. When you’re not there, your dog can still be engaged, entertained, and challenged. The scientific principles behind CleverPet have been around for over a century. CleverPet could never replace you, but it picks up where you leave off. CleverPet can go all day, seven days a week. It doesn’t leave for work, it’s never too tired to play, and it won’t let insanely adorable cuteness interfere with the consistency of its rewards. When your pet wants to engage, the CleverPet is there.

Great PI/PX (pet interface/pet experience) is at the core of CleverPet's design.

Designed for dogs. Durable rubber touch pads; low center of gravity to prevent tipping; no “bitable” parts; a microphone for sensing dog barks.

Tuned to dogs’ senses. CleverPet is built to suit natural behaviors (for example pawing, nosing, and digging), and includes lights and sounds designed for your pet’s different abilities to see and hear.

Smart dog bowl. CleverPet can replace your dog’s food bowl. It holds enough food to feed most dogs until you get home. It’s compatible with a wide range of dry food sizes.

Completely autonomous. Sit back and let the algorithms do their thing. Fill the CleverPet with food, turn it on, and leave, knowing your dog is having fun and learning while you’re away.

Always ready. Pet interactions can happen all day, whether or not you’re home.

Remote monitoring. See your pet’s progress in real time through our website and app, and view summaries of your dog’s learning over time.

Take it slow. Feeds your dog slowly, a few pieces of food at a time.

Never boring. Adapts to your dog’s responses continuously to keep your pet challenged.

WiFi-connected. It can connect to other smart devices. Just imagine the possibilities!

Spark-powered. Hack much? It's Arduino-compatible. Write your own custom code. We provide a RESTful API.

A note from CleverPet Chief Dog Trainer Graham Bloem

As a professional dog trainer, I see every day what can happen when energetic, high-drive dogs are left alone at home. Dogs are a working species, and many breeds have evolved to run for more than six hours a day. When I think about the potential of CleverPet, my mind immediately goes to the 3-5 million dogs that are euthanized every year. Many of these dogs have bad behavior that’s a direct result of the drive that builds up in them over the course of the day. It leads to a cycle: dog is frustrated, dog damages the furniture, dog gets punished, dog gets more frustrated.

With CleverPet, we can be proactive about addressing dogs’ needs to be engaged throughout the day. With stimulating games we’re directing their energy in appropriate directions, and even teaching them new things.
