Even if we love our dogs very much, most of them can't stay with us all day (those who can are lucky). There is work, gym, children activities... and during all theses moments, your beloved dog is alone at home. With Laïka he won't be lonely anymore, you stay in touch with him wherever you are.
Laïka can be remotely controlled from anywhere with a smartphone. It allows dog owners to interact with their dog while they are not at home. A live-stream video comes back directly on the pet owner’s phone so he can move Laïka around the home and play with his dog. He can talk to his dog and has access to the sound environment. Laïka also integrates a treat tosser to stimulate & reward dogs. Rewards are powerful tools to educate dogs and Laïka will help. A lot of advice from dog behaviour specialists is provided in the application in order to help dog owners to present Laïka to their dog but also to better understand them and teach them tricks.
Laïka is able to know when your dog is active or barking and notifies you threw the app. If you can't interacted with him right away, Laïka's self-running mode turns on.
With Laika, you can take a break from your emails at work to play with your pup or check on them via smartphone while you’re running errands. With the ability to control Laïka from your phone, you can interact, monitor and even reward your four-legged friend from wherever you are.
As much as we would love to, we can’t always be there to watch our furry friends. With Laïka’s live video and on-demand recording, you can always keep an eye on your dog and capture memories even while you’re away. Using the integrated HD camera, it’s also perfect for monitoring when your pup is sleeping, playing or misbehaving.
It’s almost impossible for you to know if your dog cries, barks or whines while you’re gone. Laïka has the ability to detect barking and notify you through the mobile app so you can interact with your dog in real-time and see what’s going on.
Hearing that your dog is constantly barking while you’re away does no good if you can’t calm them down. With Laïka, you can speak to your dogs to relieve some of their panic and anxiety while you’re away, as well as reward them for quieting down using the treat tosser. You can let your furry friend know that he’s being a good boy and that you’ll be home soon. It’s the perfect way to keep your pup, and your neighbors, happy.
You can reward your dog for different reasons, including good behavior, avoiding accidents or just because you want to launch a treat. It’s a great training tool to keep your pup on their best behavior while you’re away! Our treat tosser works with any treats that are smaller than 1.2 cm (the size of the treats tosser is exactly 1.6 cm).
Laïka will also be a useful tool in educating your dog. Thanks to the application you’ll be able to access lots of advice to help you teach your pup some tricks like sit, lay down and speak. The best part is, Laïka will reward them once they’ve done it well!
Playing with a squeeze toy, ball or rope that can’t move on its own has a tendency to get old really fast for most dogs. We designed Laïka with multidirectional movement capabilities in order to interact and “play” with your dog in a way that’s stimulating and fun. You can control Laïka directly from your phone or even set it on self-running mode so it will do the playing for you while you’re gone! With the way Laïka moves and rewards your dog, it will become one of your pup’s new best friends in no time.
Each dog has different behaviors and is unique in its own way. With that in mind, we designed Laïka to analyze your dog's behaviors and activities so that it can adapt to your pup as much as possible. In order to do this, Laïka uses a machine learning algorithm thanks to its sensor and powerful hardware.
What does this mean?
The same way you watch your dog, Laïka will analyze its own failure and success to make sure your dog stays stimulated. Laïka will update to get smarter and smarter so that your dog is never bored!
We know how hard it can be for our dogs toresist chewing on something, especially a new toy that they’ve never seen before. With that in mind, we designed Laïka to be incredibly durable in order to withstand the chews and nibbles from dogs both big and small. Moreover, thanks to the help of Thierry Bedossa, our veterinary behaviourist, we have already performed 150 tests with different dogs in order to find the perfect material to use on Laïka so that it’ll last for you and your pup.
Once Laïka arrives at your home (this is a super important step), you will need to present it to your dog. This allows your furry friend to get to know Laïka without any stress or aggressiveness. Our veterinarian will create video tutorials to help you with this!
First, we wanted to expose our project to a veterinarian to be sure that Laïka wouldn't stress out dogs and would help them have a better life. That’s how we met Therry Bedossa!
