The ‘WithMe Bone’ concept comforts dogs suffering from separation anxiety using a piece of worn clothing and a recorded voice.
Shanghai-based designer Yunfan Tan has developed a concept that provides a solution for lonely dogs: a bone that smells and sounds like their owner. The ‘WithMe Bone‘ comforts dogs suffering from separation anxiety when they are left alone by storing their owner’s smell and voice. A piece of worn clothing like a sock can be stuffed inside the bone and small holes let the smell out. A tiny voice recorder inside can be used to capture short messages, which are played back when the dog shakes the bone.
