Dog Bone Soothes Pets With Smells And Sounds Of Owner

Dog Bone Soothes Pets With Smells And Sounds Of Owner

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.
