Good Woofy - App Review



Good Woofy - Train your dog when you're not there.

Apart from not annoying neighbours, this App should also give your pet a calmer existence when you leave.

This works by the dog hearing your commands to both desist and praise.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The App starts with an invitation to record a command that will (should/could) get your dog to be quiet. In order to do this you need to choose Settings. Here you can record both a command, as well as praise.

Additional settings allow for picking sensitivity (low/normal/high). In addition you can record audio only, so can later listen to 'what happened', or data, in which case you will only have the number of times that the App was set off.

You can also set the delay between the command and praise.

Now when you leave, tap on Good Woofy and set the start delay between immediate and 5 minutes, and leave the iOS device (not in silent mode, obviously) somewhere your pet will hear but cannot touch.

Cost
The App Costs $2.

Indispensability
Although the App is aimed at dogs, it could also be used in other situations.

Dependability
You'll have to ask your pet for that... seriously, it works.

Security
The App needs to access your microphone (so that you can record the command/praise).

ACIDS Test Rating:

Something different, even if you do need a dog to make it work!
