Your dog uses both his body and brain to figure out the game.
A new genre of smart dog toys
Dogs are smart. Really smart! And research shows that regularly exercising the brain is necessary for dogs to stay happy, healthy and out of trouble. That’s where PupPod comes in! This fun, interactive, high-tech puzzle game gives your dog the mental stimulation he craves and automatically keeps challenging him as he learns.
PupPod uses a combination of sensors, lights and sounds to encourage your dog to use his brain to solve a puzzle and get a reward. Puzzles are simple at first, and then automatically get harder as your dog gets smarter. Stats are recorded after each session, and achievements can be shared on social media and in the PupPod community.
”Pairing the Pet Tutor and the PupPod allows you to provide an engaging and interactive game for your dog to prevent boredom. It’s a great rainy day exercise when you can’t get your dog out of the house.”

Blind Dogs & PupPod
After writing to PupPod to ask if this would be a good fit for blind dogs and receiving a reply that it would be a great fit for blind and deaf dogs, I decided to order one. I had it within days. The packaging was great with some extra surprises inside! I found the set-up to be pretty easy as Erick, with PupPod, sent some emails in advance on what to do. I had a few questions and Erick has been super quick to reply and offer great ideas and suggestions. My dogs, Tully Mars & Jimmy, are 6 year old Australian Shepherds, both blind. Tully had it figured out during the first session and is a maniac with it! He loves it! Jimmy is moving a little slower, but that is common for Jimmy. He tends to be a little apprehensive at first, then jumps in once he’s comfortable. Erick has been offering suggestions on helping ease Jimmy into playing with the PupPod.
Aussies are very smart, active dogs. Being blind does not change that. Finding mental stimulation can be a challenge for non-sighted dogs. This toy is fantastic! I can see we will get a lot of time with it.
This company truly cares. It is so nice that they have included working with special needs animals too. The customer service has been top notch.
I highly recommend PupPod for your pooch! Tully Mars & Jimmy thank you for their PupPod!

Thor’s first time
My dog Thor tried PupPod out for his first time. The app works well. I like the ability to go up and down on levels easily and under my control as I read the dogs success. Also the sounds are excellent and very unique to puzzle toys. It keeps his interest.
