Rollover Beethoven ringtone, now use your cellphone to train your dog. Okay, the inventors refer to the controller as a "command module," but it looks suspiciously like my old Nokia.

The device allows automatic discipline of your pup: "When the wireless receiver is placed in the no-bark mode, the wireless receiver module will generate a shock when triggered by a bark sensor." Sounds rough. ZAP!!! Did I say rough? ZAP!!! I meant... not pleasant.

The inventors placed the "vibration motor and shock electrodes in close proximity to the animal's vocal cords" causing many full moon howling sessions to sound like a baseball game between the Obsessive-Compulsive Garglers and the Screaming Tracheotomy Patients.

Just think about it... "Rover, this is your master. I know I'm in Cleveland on a business trip, but I hear you were on the couch. BAD DOG! ZAP!" Substitute my kid's names for "Rover" and "You didn't do your homework" for the couch part, and you may be on to something!
