KickStarter sales for GoBone hit its goal in just five days.
The GoBone was recently pitched on KickStarter as a smartbone to keep dogs active with automatic, all-day entertainment while the owner is away. They reached their goal of $60,000 in just five days, and as of today, the project is nearly at triple its goal, at nearly $150,000. The GoBone is for remote automated play, but it can also be used as an app-controlled gaming device for owners to interact with and play with their dogs in a fun, unique way when they are apart, or together.
“As a dog owner and animal shelter volunteer, I know how much being bored and lonely can stress a dog,” says Santiago Gutierrez, CEO and founder. “When I created the GoBone, my original goal was to keep my dog Rufus entertained while he was home alone. But then I realized the GoBone could also be used to improve the bond between owners and their pets through interactive games they can play together. When we tested the GoBone initially, we did so with shelter dogs of all sizes. I saw the impact it made so donating to a local Dallas shelter just made sense as a great way to give back.”
