Entry Description

This doghouse creates great fun for you and your lovely dog as it creates melody along with the random steps of your dog. Whenever the dog walks in or out of the house, he will press different keys. The doghouse will receive the signal and convert it into a beautiful melody. Dogs will feel lonely if you leave them alone. This doghouse solves this problem by playing tunes, which makes it possible that dogs can enjoy the music made by themselves. In addition to that, it also produces wonderful background music for your home. The doghouse is controlled by an App in your cellphone, the volume and two modes can be selected. 1. Musician mode - the steps are stored and processed into a whole music. 2. Live mode - the steps are converted into melody immediately. Right angle structure helps the doghouse to sit at the corner of your house, in order to minimize the utilitised space and combine with other doghouses, which set up more keys for dogs to play together. The quarter shape also provides comfortable space for dogs.
