Looking for a self-moving dog toy
 
Hey everyone,

I'm currently in search of a online site where I can buy a self-moving toy for my dog, similar to Wicked Bone, Varram robot or Robobone (example here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xfs758NLdLU).

I searched the web far and wide and failed to find a store selling this type of merchandise here in Switzerland. Anyone knows any place I missed?

Thank you in advance for any information!

The Wicked Bone you mentioned is available from Amazon (De), sold by a third party seller, deliverable to Switzerland. For a small fortune.

But if you are willing to part with a small fortune, why not go for the original self-moving dog toy? A Roomba.

Clean your floors and amuse your dog at the same time. ;)

I'm afraid I can't help further, as my mutts decidedly do not like automatic or remote control toys. But then with a herd o' mutts in the house, every toy is an interactive toy.

Good luck with your search.

What is the purpose for the toy? Is it to entertain your dog while you are not present or cannot play? If so Id be far more inclined to suggest you start feeding all or some of the dogs meals out of food dispensing toys such as Kong makes. They are reasonably priced on Zooplus.ch.

My mother wanted to buy dog a self moving toy for Christmas but I told her no as my boy would absolutely hate it. He's bad enough with the robot lawn mower and we have to keep him well away from it. He also doesn't like the interactive food dispensers much either. He has one of the Kong wobbler snackballs and he's really happy nosing and pawing it as long as food comes out but gets frustrated with it when no food comes out. He has tried to bite the top off and even picked it up and threw it!

LOL. A Roomba is too slow, dog will get bored very quickly (as do I watching it ..... cleaning the same spot over and over :D)

OP: marton sells all kind of funny stuff for your dog ;). He might have something like it or be able to import it for you while importing other stuff.

Three words: OCD herding dogs.

My dog is just old. With the roomba, she walks around it and if it bumps into her she looks at it with disdain. If she could roll her eyes, she would.

Best Roomba footage EVER is Sharkcat on YouTube. It's years old now but has never failed to cheer me up :D

Found the wicked ball here

https://techstudio.ch/products/diibr...hr-robust-grun

It says immediately deliverable in 3 to 5 days.

I found this link via toppreise.ch

Yes, although the chicken on a roomba is pretty funny too....

We bought one of these for our youngest son, as a result, we play with the whole family. This dog knows how to perform commands, and it is more fun than ordinary toys. We also ordered another ordinary robot, but the robot dog seemed more interesting to the children. Look here https://top-mom.com/best-toy-robots/ I am sure you will like it.

Dogs chew things, and batteries are toxic particularly those small enough to be swallowed whole.

Im not so certain this is a good idea.
