(10 Best Robotic Pet Dogs In 2017)

Zoomer Interactive Puppy – Shadow


Shadow, the robot dog by Zoomer, can do double the tricks. He acts like a real puppy in that you can teach him how to sit, speak, rollover, lay down, shake a paw, and plenty more.

You can program him to understand your voice in 3 different languages (English, Spanish, and French) plus he can bark, scoot and play just like a real dog. It’s best for children ages 5 and up. No need to feed him or clean up after him either. Simply charge him up using the included USB cable and enjoy your robot dog!

Things to consider

This plastic dog is just what the family needs. If you’ve wanted a dog but don’t have the time or finances to put the proper care in that a living, breathing dog needs, Shadow is a perfect compromise. Keeping him up and running is easy by charging him with the USB cable. Since he behaves just like a real dog, he’ll be fun for everyone in the family.

Paw Patrol Robo Dog Action Pack Pup & Badge


If your younger children love Paw Patrol, they’ll love RoboDog. This robot dog comes with a Pup Pack that turns into wings, exactly like the one in the cartoon. You can also collect the other Paw Patrol action figures that are sold separately. No batteries are needed. Just a love for Paw Patrol and plenty of imagination for a good time.

Things to consider

RoboDog is made for ages 3 and up. It’s a great option for kids that love Paw Patrol. While there are no batteries, the downside is that it is only fueled by imagination. In other words, it doesn’t move on its own. If you want a robot dog that acts like a real dog, you’ll want to consider the other robot dogs on our list. If you want to make a small child that loves Paw Patrol happy though, this is a nice choice.

Electronic Pet Dog Harry


Meet Harry, the robot dog. He is a little longer than 7 inches in length and stands proud at about 6 inches in height. Harry can walk and bark, plus make other dog sounds too. An adorable robotic Dalmatian dog, he has sensors that respond to human touch. He can play and chase on any smooth surface. Bump n’ Go keeps him walking. And if you want him to sing and dance, simply touch his head for quite the performance. There’s one more thing you should know about Harry. If you touch him on the backside, you’ll get a surprise!

Things to consider

If you’ve always wanted a Dalmatian but can’t handle a large dog, Harry is a great choice. He requires 3 AA batteries which are included with purchase. As far as robot dogs go, he’s a good boy. Though we can’t say what the surprise is when he’s touched on the backside, since he is electronic, you can be sure it won’t stain your carpets.

Additionally, you can get this new dog to teach your kids new tricks. He has a study mode that enables him to teach the kids the alphabet. You can recharge him when his batteries run low and he’ll be back to barking and farting in no time!

Things to consider

With a dog like Dada, you won’t miss owning a real dog. He’s entertaining as well as educational. The robot dog and the remote control run on batteries though it isn’t made clear if those are included in the purchase. The option to make him fart certainly is amusing, however you’ll have to use the remote to control him. If you want a hands-free robot dog that behaves more intuitively, this isn’t the right for you. If you like being in control, Dada will be great for your family.

WowWee CHiP Robot Toy Dog – White Color

Best of all, when CHiP has a low battery, he automatically goes to his SmartBed to charge himself so you’ll never forget to charge him! How cool!

Things to consider

For those seeking a realistic robot dog that is incredibly intuitive, CHiP is a fantastic choice. You have 3 ways to control him and you can train him as you wish in many ways.

It can even pee too though we presume it’s of the electronic sort and won’t stain your rugs. What sets this dog apart from the others is that it has different emotions based on the sounds and actions it can make. You’ll see it anxious and excited as well as some others too. Additionally, you can buy it without worry as it comes with a 45-day money-back guarantee and an 18-month warranty.

He’s able to do over 100 different things randomly, making him seem as real as ever. Plus, the packaging can be used as a carrier to take him anywhere you go. He’s snuggly and adorable, and looks great with his neck bandana too. An included training guide helps you become Georgie’s master.

A more lifelike option, Georgie’s plush feel is different from all the plastic options. We love how he randomly does things like an actual dog would, making him seem more realistic. Voice commands make him more real too. Georgie is an excellent choice for a robot dog for the family.

Zoomer Zupps – Litter 1 – Interactive Puppy


Zoomer Zupps are robot dogs that respond directly to your interaction. The more attention you give them, the more they’ll give you. They can even bark out an “I love you!” The eyes light up and you’ll get a response when you pet its head or touch the nose. What makes Zoomer Zupps unique is that each one has a secret trick that’s unique. You can adopt the whole litter or just one, though all of them are sold separately.

Things to consider

Do you have more than one kid? If so and they fight over what’s theirs, it would be really cool to get more than one Zoomer Zupp. We love the interaction on these and how they seem like more emotional and living creatures than just a robot. They are for ages 4 and up and they require the use of 3 LR44 batteries which come included with each of these robot dogs.

WowWee CHiP: The Lovable Robot Dog
