Bored dogs eat couches. It's just a fact of life. Giving your pup a bone to chew on helps. What happens when they get bored of the bone? Now there is an interactive bone here to save your couch. Control the bone through an app on your phone that connects through Bluetooth. The bone rolls around, zigs and zags about, and lights up with different colors. There's an interactive mode you can pop it in to play with you pup without you that lasts for about 20 minutes. Here's hoping your pooch doesn't get bored after 20 minutes and go back to eating your couch.

What could happen if something goes wrong

This little dog toy doesn't meet our Minimum Security Standards because it doesn't seem to have a way to manage security vulnerabilities. We also couldn't determine if used encryption or required strong password. Cheerable doesn't sell your personal data, which is good. It may share aggregated, de-identified information for marketing purposes, which isn't that big of a deal. One thing we noticed doing our research is there were a lot of people in the Google Play store complaining about why the app needs access to GPS location data. That's a good question. Why does your dog's toy need track your phone's location?
