Q: What if my puppy is scared of the bone?
A: The following steps may help to avoid a situation of scare and also attract your puppy's interest:
i. Put your puppy’s favourite food at the bottom, and then guide to eat the food at the bottom of the bone while helping him to interact with the bone through the food.
ii. Instead of a cell phone connection at the beginning, you may interact with your puppy with a bone in your hand to familiarise the pet with his new toy so he doesn't get scared when it moves.
iii. When the device is connected to your phone, you may leave some time for him to be familiar with Wickedbone by starting with soft actions, i.e. nod head, lift head, etc. Meanwhile, you may customise the setting of “speed, acceleration, and swerve” to be “Slow”.
After several times of familiarity, relevant improvements can be made.

A: Wickedbone comes with the white tyres, but if you'd like the blue, green or pink tyres, you will need to buy the additional tyre combo.
