App-Enabled Dog Bone, GoBone, Featured on Oprah List

GoBone Inc., maker of smart, connected devices for pets and their people, announces that its flagship product, GoBone, the world’s first app-enabled smart bone for dogs, has been included on Oprah’s Favorite Things List 2017. The revolutionary dog toy joins the ranks of handpicked gift ideas that make up O, the Oprah Magazine‘s highly anticipated annual holiday wish list, which can be found in the December issue — on newsstands now. GoBone, which is already available for purchase on Amazon, will also be included in the online megastore’s dedicated Oprah’s Favorite Things storefront, amazon.com/oprah.

“Give a dog a better bone. The GoBone automatically keeps a pup rolling around, chasing and being chased, all at the touch of an app. This is at the top of Sadie’s wish list,” Oprah says in the December issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.

Designed with both pet parents and their beloved pups in mind, GoBone automatically keeps dogs active and engaged when their owners are busy, and opens up a whole new world of play when they’re together. In Auto Play mode, GoBone flips, zips and zooms around the floor on its own, enticing a dog to race around the house in joyful pursuit. Customized for a pup’s age, weight, breed and style of play, GoBone can be chased, chewed, tossed and even stuffed with treats, and it’s equipped with a rechargeable battery to deliver up to eight hours of play in Auto Play mode. When owner and dog want to enjoy playtime together, GoBone connects to a smartphone via the free GoBone App, transforming it into a remote-controlled gaming device that allows for up to 30 minutes of continuous fun on a single battery charge.

“I created GoBone to give my dog, Rufus, opportunities for exercise and enjoyment even when I’m busy. I feel better knowing Rufus is entertained no matter what’s going on in my life, and I love having new ways to bond and interact with him when we play,” explained Santiago Gutierrez, GoBone’s CEO and founder. “We are honored that Oprah noticed our product and felt it deserved a place on this year’s list of her favorite things, and look forward to seeing GoBone spread joy to many more pet parents and dogs this holiday season and beyond.”

Ms. Winfrey has been sharing her Favorite Things with fans for over 20 years, and each year the list has gotten bigger and better while always promising to be chock-full of ingenious new products and old favorites for the young, the elderly and the furry. The long-standing tradition is often hailed as the official start to the holidays.

GoBone is available to purchase for $199 via mygobone.com and all products listed in O, the Oprah Magazine‘s holiday gift guide are also available for purchase through Amazon’s dedicated Oprah’s Favorite Things storefront: amazon.com/oprah.

To give hardworking pet parents and their dogs an extra dose of holiday cheer, GoBone Inc. is giving away GoBones to 20 lucky winners as part of the O, The Oprah Magazine 12-Day Give-O-Way Sweepstakes. Details available at oprah.com.
