Description
Your dog has something to tell you! Enjoy a closer relationship with your dog with Bow-Lingual. This amazing system receives, analyzes, and translates your dog's bark into six emotions.
Loaded with functions to encourage a happy relationship with your dog.

Bark Translation
Analyzes your dog's barks to determine which of six emotions it is feeling: happy, sad, frustrated, on-guard, assertive, and needy. The Bow-Lingual then displays a phrase matched to the emotion to represent what your dog might say if only he could speak.
Body Language
A guide to interpret your dog's behavior to help you teach and care for your dog.
Data Analysis
Maintains a record of the 100 most recently analyzed barks for your reference.
Home Alone Mode
Monitors and records your dog's barks and emotions for up to eight hours while you are away.
Ten Training Tips
Useful training tips on subjects such as toilet training and chew training your dog.
Medical Reference
Medical checklist to help you keep your dog healthy. The content is provided by Dr. Tamara Shearer DVM and author of three books, including Emergency First Aid for Your Dog and The Essential Book for Dogs Over Five.
Set Up
Calibrates Bow-Lingual to the breed of your dog. More than 80 of the most common breeds in the United States are pre-programmed and other breeds, including mixed breeds, can be registered by size of dog and shape of snout.
The Bow-Lingual is the result of many years work by experts in acoustics and animal behavior. The core Animal Emotion Analysis System (AEAS) was developed by Dr. Matsumi Suzuki of the Japan Acoustic Laboratory. Dr. Suzuki analyzed more then 5,000 voiceprints of dog barks and, in consultation with animal behaviorists, assigned each voiceprint to an emotional category. Dr. Suzuki discovered that dogs typically express six emotions with their barks--happy, sad, on-guard, frustrated, assertive, and needy. A database of phrases was then developed to translate these emotions into English.
Let Bow-Lingual help you understand what your dog is trying to tell you!

Hmmmm... I like that it has the "Home Alone" mode that records the dog's barking because I've always wondered if Tuffy barks a lot when I'm gone.. I may try that!

I wonder if Fantasia barks when we are gone too. I have asked my neighbors (I live in an apartment complex) but they all say that they never hear her. I can't see her NEVER barking when we are away because if we are here in the livingroom and she is sleeping in her bedroom she hears something and comes out barking. I figure if she hears something outside when we are gone she barks but I am not sure.
I don't think I would spend $20 to find out though. It does sound like a cute toy but I don't think I would pay more than $10 for it. I remember when it was over $100 and I thought it was crazy!

By the way, I truly believe in dog accents.  Noodle was flabbergasted when he first met dogs in America.  It really was like he had no idea what they were saying and he was so much more comfortable when we came back to Korea.

I finally got the Bow-lingual and it's really cute and silly. The translator "analyzes" your dog's bark and then tells you what they are trying to say. I'd say it was fairly accurate to what I took Tuffy's barks to mean. I really, really liked the "Home Alone" mode where it records barks for up to 8 hours. We left Tuffy home alone for a couple of hours on Saturday and when we got back the Bow-lingual showed that he barked for a few minutes when we first left and not again until we got home! So to me, it paid for itself right then because it let me know that Tuffy doesn't bark when I'm not home!
It's not something I'd typically leave on Tuffy for a super long period of time because it's a little bulky and he was a little peeved at me when I put it on him. But for short little bits of time, it's fun! And the microphone part fit on his harness so you don't need a collar to use it.
