Puppy Tweets works wirelessly with an electronic tag that communicates to the provided USB dongle when installed on a nearby computer. Tweets are generated based on the dog's physical behavior, such as running or napping, and audible behavior, like barking, and transmitted to a dog's Twitter account wirelessly via the USB dongle. The operating range varies depending on physical obstructions but may reach up to 100 feet between USB dongle and the tag.
Twitter Isn't Just for the Birds
After downloading the Puppy Tweets software and inserting the 3V lithium battery, dog owners can access the Puppy Tweets desktop icon to modify the frequency of tweets. The content of the tweets, however, is not customizable. In response to consumer demand, on the manufacturer's Web site there is mention of forthcoming downloadable "packs" for increased variety of puppy tweets. Although the tag that attaches to the dog's collar is made of hard plastic, the device is not likely to withstand destruction if Fido ever uses the device as a chew toy. However, when the tag is securely attached to a dog's collar it is out of reach and should not get in the way of usual canine activity.
What's in the Box
Puppy Tweets tag, USB dongle, 3V lithium battery, and battery instruction sheet.
Simple to set up, the Puppy Tweets device attaches directly to your dog's collar.
You'll receive hilarious tweets about your dog's status - whether he's eating, playing, or napping! View larger.

Unfortunately, this product is a fake! The motion sensor, time of day and microphone have nothing to do with what it sends out.
2 major problems:
1) It's really big! The device you hang on the dog's collar is 2 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick. The chain it is suspended on is another 1.5 inches, basically making the entire device 3.5 inches hanging off your dog's collar. This might not be a big deal to some larger dogs, but my 20 lb. shelties hated it. They would try to run and the puppytweets attachment would continually swing up and smack them in the face. They kept trying to bite it off and I constantly found them walking around with it in their mouth. They just hated having it on their collar. The most amusing thing that came out of buying this product is that the dog not wearing the device would try to chase after the other and grab on to the product while it was swinging around. They made a game out of this giant tag that flailed about while they ran. As I said though, this might not be a problem for larger dogs, and I would not have rated the product poorly just because of this aspect.
2) More importantly, it just doesn't work well.Read more ›
First off, the thing is big. It drove our 20 pound dogs crazy.
Secondly, getting it to connect to our computer and stay connected was a pain.
Third, the tweets were really dumb. They didn't seem to have much to do with what the dog was doing. A lot of bad puns. Plus, I'm pretty sure it tweeted once when a dog didn't even have the collar on.
We sent them back the same day we got them, I really can't recommend these at all.
As soon as I hooked it up, the tweets started rolling in. "I feel like a steak," one read. "How bout a walk," another asked. Then, "tonight." Why would my dog tweet "tonight?" Must have been a mistake right? Maybe, but what I awoke to the next day chilled my spine. In the backyard I discovered half of my neighbor's cat. HALF! That cat used to warm its belly in the sun on my back patio. Now his belly was warming on my patio, but the rest of him was laying under the swing set. My kid walked in and immediately vomited. So, then I had even more to clean up.
I didn't start piecing things together until a few days later. The mundane tweets from my dog continued over those days and then, "tonight." Of course, I was again a little confused. The next morning I found another bit of cat in the backyard, and again my kid vomited upon the sight of it. After cleaning himself up, my boy suggested that maybe our dog was to blame. I quickly dismissed this but, even I had to admit, our normally regal looking golden retriever did look quite angry at my boy's suggestion. There were no more tweets for the rest of the day, but that night I received another. "The child," it read. After reading it, I looked up to find the dog in the doorway of my bedroom, staring through my soul. He then slowly backed out into the hallway as I received one more tweet. "Tonight," it read.
My boy and I left immediately.Read more ›

It's a fun gag gift. However our dog doesn't move around a lot during the day and therefore it doesn't send out tweets often.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
