Social Robotic Dogs in Kennels

Have you ever been to a dog kennel and listen to all the noise of the dog's barking, yapping and howling? The often do not seem like happy campers. Maybe they are, who knows; what I do know is if I were a dog I would not want to be put in a cage. Dogs have four feet and paws for traction, they are built to run and jump, explore and dig. Sticking them on a concrete floor in a cage, well that is not my idea of a good time. So, here is a through. We introduce good looking, in dog terms; social robotic dogs to each kennel.

They cruise around and discuss dog things with all the animals there and promote good behavior and happiness. Now before you say this guy is nuts, please be advised that Robotic Dogs already exist and people like them a lot. Dogs also like to play with their robotic friends.

If we put these in kennels then dogs will be much happier and not make so much noise. When the owners leave a dog in a kennel it could very much upset the animal and cause tensions in the animal pet, human relationship. Introducing social robotic dogs to enhance proper behavior, eating habits, etc. could easily be done and as we learn more about these things eventually the robotic dogs would make excellent trainers for rescue, security, sniffing and seeing eye dogs. Think on this a bit.
