Puppy Tweets callout
Opposable Thumbs Not Required
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.

Product Description

Tweets are the new Barks! Ever wonder what your pup is doing while you're away? Well, now you can get the 411 with text messages from Puppy Tweets! Whenever your dog moves, barks (or just naps), the tag knows it and sends a WiFi signal to your computer which then sends you a Tweet via Twitter. Simply set up a Twitter page for your dog and your Puppy Tweets tag starts generating Tweets. Puppy Tweets comes pre-loaded with over 500 phrases that put a humorous or insightful spin on your dog's daily activity. For example, a bark may generate a Tweet of: "I bark because I miss you. There I said it. Now hurry home." A quick run through the house could produce: "I finally caught that tail I've been chasing and...OOUUUCHH!" Invite your friends and family to follow your pet on Twitter and help your dog follow his or her favorite puppy pals or celebrities. Puppy Twitter lets you connect with your pet over the Internet. It's a great way to brighten your day 'cause a Tweet from your pooch is a virtual smooch!

Upon arrival the box/package was damaged.

Setting up a program to randomly tweet and say it was my dogs doing it probably would have the same result that using the device did.

The mundane tweets from my dog continued over those days and then, "tonight."

I waited 5 months for PuppyTweets to come out. The day I received it I set up a Twitter account for my boy and hooked up the antenna to my PC. Got a couple tweets while it was around my dogs neck and thought it was lame but oh well. I took off his collar when it was bed time. Over the night we got 5 or 6 more tweets from him. I thought, ok, maybe it is close to the antenna and it thought he was laying down. Because the thing that goes on his collar was so big, I wasn't going to leave it on him during the day in case he tried to eat it. I unplugged the antenna during the day when it wasn't on his neck. Well, wouldn't you know we got tweets from him...all day...1 an hour. For the next 2 days I left it unplugged and got a tweet once an hour. I have uninstalled the program from my computer, boxed up PuppyTweets and sent it back to Amazon.

Unfortunately, this product is a fake! The motion sensor, time of day and microphone have nothing to do with what it sends out.

This sounded like an interesting idea to me... it basically comes down to a collar attachment that detects sound and motion from your dog and then wirelessly sends the info to a program on your computer, which then writes a short tweet on a twitter account set up for your dog. I didn't have extremely high hopes for this device, but thought it would be fun to check in on my dogs during the day. I was hoping to be able to see a tweet every once in a while showing me that they were barking out the window, running around the house, or maybe napping while I was gone during the day. My low expectations weren't even close to being met by this device.

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.

This looked like it was going to be a great product. I mean, "Puppy Tweets?" Even the name is priceless. I would have paid hundreds, so when I saw it was being offered for less than $10 I jumped right on it. Other reviewers are right. When it arrived, I was surprised how large the device was but who cares right? It's just a stupid dog... at least, that's what I thought.
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.

I loved the idea of this thing. But there are tons of problems.

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.
