Pawbo, the pet technology company owned by tech giants Acer, has announced the launch of its latest gadget for pets, the Pawbo Munch. The feel-good treat dispenser for your furry friends also houses an LED display and audio speakers, letting you interact with your pets from wherever you are in the world.
Rewarding pet playtime
The Pawbo Munch can be operated by either remote control or through the Pawbo Life App when working alongside the Pawbo+ pet cam. Your pets will be entertained and stimulated for hours thanks to a clever slot machine style game where dogs, cats and any other domestic pet will be rewarded with delicious treats. These nutritious rewards are dispensed from the slide or tray when the symbols are matched at random, providing fun for both pets and owners alike.
Munch also plays catchy musical tunes, offering an entertainment station that stimulates and helps boost wellbeing and essential feel-good factors that pets need as much as humans.
Encouraging pet wellbeing
This wellbeing factor is particularly significant, with owners increasingly concerned about the importance of pet responsibility and pets’ mental health. With the demands work life can often bring, this is resulting in more owners being separated from their pets for longer periods which can cause pet anxiety and depression.
A recent study conducted by Pawbo revealed that over 65% of the 1,000 current and former pet owners surveyed said their pet exhibited unusual anxiety-related behaviours when left at home alone. One of the most common behaviours cited by owners was pet “sadness or depression” stemming from separation anxiety.
Pet innovation, interaction, stimulation
Ray Lin, Marketing Director at Pawbo said:
“The vast majority of pet owners have concerns about leaving their pets at home – no matter if it’s for an hour or for longer periods – but unfortunately modern life demands that pets and pet owners be forced to be apart. Fortunately, technology can connect pets and pet owners alike to eliminate stress and anxiety all around.”
“This is why Pawbo Munch isn’t just about treating pets, but also about having fun with them and providing them with daily stimulus. Its mutually beneficial offering means that not only are owners provided with an easy way to treat, play and interact with pets as a source of entertainment but perhaps more crucially, it affords pets an opportunity to interact with their owners, encourage stimulation and increase a sense of wellbeing and attachment to their owner, no matter the distance between them.”
Theme Park fun
Munch is a long-awaited addition to the Pawbo Theme Park, a tailor-made concept created with the introduction of the Pawbo+ Wireless Interactive Pet Camera and designed to meet the needs of individual pets. It provides owners the unique opportunity to build their very own park, by adding accessories such as Pawbo Munch. Pawbo Catch, a remotely controlled Interactive Cat Teaser, is another recent addition to the range.
