First things first,
I have left my review on the purchase of this Companion Puppy a few months .
I actually haven't seen the Puppy, as my Mum resides interstate in Sydney . We gave this Puppy to Mum for her Birthday in June and my sister said she liked it .But because of her stage of her condition would forget about the puppy and be surprised and a little frightened of the noises it made.
The solution was my sister would switch off the AI when she left Mum and then turn the Toy on after soon after her arrival next Visit...
Now in the months that have past I am happy to hear that Mum now Loves the Companion Puppy and Show & Tells Visitors & Staff about him .
I will be down visiting next month and look forward to seeing Mum and her interaction with the Puppy she has named 'Baby'....
Our mother has dementia and can’t have her much loved dog in the care home. She loves the puppy, we’re so pleased that it provides some comfort.
My husband is in care with Alzheimers and Parkinson. He loves with talk and touch “ Winston” as I named him. Although he doesn’t remember his name. He so enjoys engaging with him. It makes our visit a pleasant one having fun with Winston. Haven’t had the heart to tell him our dog died six months ago. Winston has helped healed the gap. I know longer need to make excuses about having to go and feed our dog which makes it easier to leave him. So pleased to have found Winston for my husband.
My 90 year old mother sort of knows it's not actually a real dog, but nevertheless enjoys talking to it and getting a response. The dog barks when she chats with it, wags its tail and most of all is soft and pleasant to stroke when on her lap. It is now her constant companion, sits with her, sleeps with her - she doesn't want to leave it. To be honest, I've been amazed at how much she loves it. It definitely is cheering - a great idea. I did buy a cat too, have not yet introduced that as caring for the dog has been so all-consuming for my mother, but may do that later on.
