Technology for dogs just moved one paw forward. A New York man named Jeff Myers recently uploaded a video to Vimeo of a drone walking his dog. Yes, you read that correctly. He connected the dog's leash to the drone and sent them outside for the Golden....

My answer is YES but ONLY if I can ride along with him in my electric wheelchair, lol! The doggy in the video looks like he's saying: 'Hey, now! Why's this UFO following me? Where's my person? Why'm I being walked by a UFO? Will little green men land on me....?'

Well ..... Big well ! Maybe it is okay for some , I like to walk our two dogs , I get to experience it w ' them
we no longer have small children so its an added joy for us when the little ones join us to walk , I pick up litter
sadly had to report illegal drugs we found twice & always tiny liquor bottles weekly , it really clues me in to things
good & bad that I might otherwise miss , Also to say hello to neighbors I would otherwise never have
gotten to know if not for the evening walk . So no drones for us .

I have to add my joke is , I feel like the mail person , the old motto of through
rain , sleet , snow , those dogs know after their early dinner that they get a walk and they expect it
no matter what , so we have all the little rain slickers & coats for all that comes .

Nobody can substitute you in front of your dog

It seems like a nice idea and could be useful for very busy people or people with mobility issues, but nothing really takes the place of actually being there and being close by and using that time to bond with the dog. I'm sure most dogs would agree. ;) That's just my opinion.
Interesting article. Thanks Barb.

This would be an answer to prayer for me. Like I said, I'd go wakin' with him!

I can see how this could be helpful for some people, but not me - I always used to walk our dog myself (when we had a dog) and would again if we ever get another dog. Thanks Barb :)
