Dogs only. Not cats allowed! This super smart pet feeder is only smart enough for dogs. Cat food doesn't work. Dogs get recommendations on the right diet for their breed, a scale that weighs just how much your pup will be served, a built-in HD video camera so you can watch your dog eat if you have no life, a built-in dinner bell. and it even monitors food levels and will reorder your pet food on Amazon so you never have to think about ordering dog food again. The dog feeder pairs with Amazon Alexa to let you do some artificial intelligencing. We're not really sure what that means, but as Wagz describes it you can "connect with you pup by turning real-time data into language on your smart home personal assistant. Not sure what all the wagging is about? Just ask Alexa." Uhm....Woof?

What could happen if something goes wrong?

Wagz didn't get back to us with answers to our privacy and security questions so we're unable to tell if they meet our Minimum Security Standards. That is a red flag. While it's unlikely to happen, we suppose it's possible bad people could hack in, spy on you like you spy on your dog, or order a bunch of pet food through Amazon for you and leave you with all that food and a big dog food bill.
