The Story

How the idea was born?

Digital Dogsitter was developed to solve a real problem. Juuso's Welsh Corgi, Väinö, was suffering from separation anxiety when he was younger. The situation got worse when we moved to a new apartment. None of the available methods of treatment seemed to help, and we wanted to find a friendly way to cure dog separation anxiety.

After doing a lot of separation training, we came up with an idea of playing our own voice to him while he barked alone. This method was surprisingly effective and Väinö's situation got better. We built a beta version of the app and, inspired by its success, decided to make an easy-to-use software for everybody.
