Initially, I wasn’t sure if buying a “Robot Dog Toy” was the right fit for me since I’m not one of their target customers; I don’t have dementia nor am I elderly, nor did I ever even live with a dog. In fact, I had only lived with cats before. But, then I moved into a strict no pets building. I bought this “dog” to help me with the transition from going from a real pet to being without any pet. I decided on the Joy for All dog over their Joy for All Cat because of the barkback technology. I wanted something that actually responded to me (my voice, or my touch). This robot dog has exceeded my expectations. It has brought me all the relaxing/soothing benefits of having a pet without any of the drawbacks. He still responds to my voice or touch even when he’s on mute. He’s pretty soft considering his fake fur covers basically a machine and his legs are movable where you can make him lie down (his default stance is sitting). There were a couple of hiccups on the day I opened the box. His “fur coat” shed and it was a lot. The second hiccup was for some reason on day 1 and only that day, I couldn’t get him to go into sleep mode/turn off even if I wasn’t interacting with it. However, that sleep mode issue has since resolved itself after day 1 and the shedding seemed to stop. Now I can prop him up on my couch next to me while watching tv and he goes into sleep mode if I don’t touch him or talk to him. As for the adjustment of going from a real cat’s purr to a robot dog that doesn’t purr at all, it’s still a smooth adjustment since his calming “heart” beats and you can feel and hear it when you pet his back.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this robot dog despite the 1st day hiccups. the inconveniences of 1 day is completely outweighed by its long list of benefits for me. I recommend this for people who are in my situation where their buildings don’t allow pets, also, not just to the elderly or those who suffer from dementia.
