Almost every day my daughter asks us for a dog. Not a day passes that she won’t mention how she’ll take care of a dog, that she would love to take a dog for walks, and she insists that she wants to train puppies for a living. She borrows dog breed books from the library and watches shows about dogs. I think it’s safe to say we have a dog lover on our hands!
So when the FurReal Friends GoGo Walkin’ Pup first arrived at our home, my daughter Chanel squealed with excitement and ripped open the box as fast as she could. She quickly named the cute and fluffy fur ball, Super Dog, and the dog has becomes this girl’s new best friend! Super Dog was quick to learn the most basic commands – sit, speak, and walk! Using the attached leash (which does not come off), pressing the button can make Super Dog do a couple of tricks, and of course, the best part – WALK!
Pressing the button on the leash will make the FurReal Friends GoGo Walkin’ Pup walk a few feet, but continue to press the button and the dog will keep walking until you let go of the button. Patting the dog’s head causes her to sit, cock her head to the side, and bark at you! I love that when you walk away from the dog and stop playing with her, she starts howling and begging for your attention!
As you can see, Super Dog would go with us everywhere if she could bring him. However, that’s not always possible (imagine Super Dog at the dentist?!) – but there’s a new Get Up and GoGo My Walkin’ Pup APP so you can virtually take care of your pet even when she’s not around!
You can even use the app to play with your GoGo Walkin’ Pup, although it’s not required. Super Dog responds to the on-screen app action with movements and happy barks! In the app you can take a picture of your pet to give her a makeover, groom your dog, feed them, and play fetch with your pet! The app is available on iTunes and Google Play.
We love the Get Up and GoGo My Walkin’ Pup in this house! The toy is slated for ages 4 and up, however my 30-month old boy loves to play with it, too! It requires 4 CC batteries (not included), and has an on/off switch to save battery power when not in use. This is a really cool toy, and I would definitely recommend it for any animal lover!
A cool feature with this toy is that if there’s another GoGo My Walkin’ Pup (or My Baby Panda!) in the room, the two toys communicate and play with each other! My daughter’s only wish is that there were more buttons on the leash to allow her pet to do more tricks! Here is a quick video we made to show you Super Dog’s special features!
