Q: Are PawkieTalkie buttons suitable for all pets, including those with special needs?

Q: Can I use PawkieTalkie buttons for more than one pet?

A: Absolutely! PawkieTalkie buttons are a paw-some addition to multi-pet households. Each pet can have their set of buttons to communicate their unique preferences and desires. Just ensure that each pet has their dedicated set of buttons to avoid confusion. Let the talking, barking, and meowing conversations begin!

Q: How many buttons should I start with? What words should I choose?

A: We recommend starting with two buttons to teach differentiation, but some pets may need time to learn to push the buttons. There are many techniques that work to help your pet become comfortable with using the buttons and recognize the action leads to a desirable reward or activity. Some common first words include: 'walk,' 'play,' 'outside,' 'food/treat.'

Q: How will my pet remember what each button says?

A: Just like we develop muscle memory when we use our phones and type on keyboards, so do pets. Given time and practice, pets can memorize the locations and meaning of words.
