Tidy Dog” trains a dog to put away his own toys. They reached their fundraising goal on Kickstarter.com, the crowd-funding site, so you can now buy it at TheTidyDog.com for $65.
It’s worth watching the Tidy Dog video. A dog figures out that every time he drops a toy into the bin, it dispenses a treat. Smart dogs will soon figure out that they can drop in your shoes, wallet, newspaper and anything else lying around. Some people will be ecstatic over a tidy home; others will notice their dog getting fat. Of course, lazy dogs may not care about the treats. In that case, if you want the toys picked up, you do it.
