Cheil Wordwide and pet company Woorien has launched PetTalk, a chatbot that lets dog-owners to ‘talk ’to their dogs. The app interprets a dog’s body signal and provides advice to pet-owners on how they should respond. The owners can then receive advice from pet behaviour specialists by typing in a query on PetTalk.

For example, if one were to ask ‘Why do you keep yawning?’ after seeing their dog yawn often, one might get a reply from an animated dog avatar saying ‘I’m anxious and nervous right now’. At this point, specialists might even advice one to yawn back at the dog in order convey a message to the dog to say ‘it’s fine here’ or ‘take it easy’.

PetTalk says there are more than 100 animated body signals of the dog verified by vets and animal behaviour specialists—these include big movements such as raising a foot or showing their belly, to small gestures including eyes and ears movement and facial expression. The app also uses AI in its search function.
