Now that you have the facts about robot dogs and real dogs, it is time to consider a few factors that can affect your decision.
Personally, what kind of dog do you want? Have you always been a dog lover and prefers to have your dog alive and kicking, or do you want to experience new technology and have a robot dog?
Of course, cost is an important factor to consider in your decision. A robot dog is very expensive, and you need to have a lot of money stored for future maintenance. On the other hand, a real dog can also be expensive depending on the breed, but nothing can compare to the high price of a robot dog. As for maintenance, a real dog would need feeding, grooming, and regular visits to the vet, which can also be expensive.
What kind of dog do you need? What kind of lifestyle do you have? Your need must be considered in your decision to own a real or robot dog. If you need real comfort and genuine love and loyalty from your pet, then buy a real dog. But if your work and lifestyle does not allow you to have time to take care of a real dog, then you purchase a robot dog. A robot pet will allow you to be flexible in your schedule. You don’t have to worry about going out for the whole day and night or going away for days because you don’t have a real dog to feed. However, if you want your children to have a lot of fun with an interactive dog, you can have a robot dog for your kids to train. But if you want your family to have authentic happiness and joy with a barking and wagging tails and occasional headache, then a real dog is best for you.
Real dogs and robot exists in this world, whether you like it or not. If you are confronted with doubts on which dog you want, you have to think of what is best for you and your family. You can get out of your comfort zone and experience what it feels like to have a robot dog, or you can stay traditional and have a real dog. But if you think about it, you actually don’t have to choose between the two. You can have the best of both worlds by having both.
Buy a real puppy and a robot dog to train at the same time, and let them live with you like normal pets. You can see the difference and similarities of both your pets, and figure out which one you like best. Bottomline is, the only way to know for sure what you really need, is to see for yourself what works best. You may be surprised to find that both give you equal happiness.
