GoBone Inc., the maker of smart, connected devices for pets and their people, announces that its flagship product, GoBone, the world’s first app-enabled smart bone for dogs, has been included on Oprah’s Favorite Things List 2017. GoBone. which is already available for purchase on Amazon, will also be included in the online megastore’s dedicated Oprah’s Favorite Things storefront, amazon.com/oprah.
Designed with both pet parents and their beloved pups in mind, GoBone was founded in 2014 by Santiago Gutierrez, an electrical engineer who was inspired to create something to improve the quality of life of animals, including his miniature Schnauzer Rufus. GoBone automatically keeps dogs active and engaged when their owners are busy, and opens up a whole new world of play when they’re together. In Auto Play mode, it flips, zips, and zooms around the floor on its own, enticing a dog to race around the house in joyful pursuit.
Customized for a pup’s age, weight, breed, and style of play, GoBone can be chased, chewed, tossed, and even stuffed with treats, and it’s equipped with a rechargeable battery to deliver up to eight hours of play in Auto Play mode. When owner and dog want to enjoy playtime together, GoBone connects to a smartphone via the free GoBone App, transforming it into a remote-controlled gaming device that allows for up to 30 minutes of continuous fun on a single battery charge.
“I created GoBone to give my dog, Rufus, opportunities for exercise and enjoyment even when I’m busy. I feel better knowing Rufus is entertained no matter what’s going on in my life, and I love having new ways to bond and interact with him when we play,” explained Santiago Gutierrez, GoBone’s CEO and founder. “We are honored that Oprah noticed our product and felt it deserved a place on this year’s list of her favorite things, and look forward to seeing GoBone spread joy to many more pet parents and dogs this holiday season and beyond.”
GoBone is available to purchase for $199 via mygobone.com. To give hardworking pet parents and their dogs an extra dose of holiday cheer, GoBone Inc. is giving away GoBones to 20 lucky winners as part of the O, The Oprah Magazine 12-Day Give-O-Way Sweepstakes. Details available at oprah.com.
