"Messages can be sent to a pet using a hand-held remote transmitter and a receiver that is attached to the pet. The receiver can record voice commands. When the transmitter sends a signal, the receiver picks up the signal and plays the recorded command to the pet. The receiver can also have one or more lights mounted on it that can be turned on by pushing buttons on the transmitter."

No more running around, yelling, "Lassie, come home!" Just put on this collar and stay at home. It's like having a remote control for your dog.

Haven't Irish(?) sheepherders been using human whistling for hundreds of years to signal their dogs, who watch the flocks far beyond human voice range. Whistling sheepherders, etc, as did wagon wheel makers, will eventually disappear. How sad...

Simply wear around your neck and your wife can message you without expensive cell phones.

I wonder if that Alex from Strohs and Spuds McKenzie were outfitted with these devices. "Alex! Spuds! GET MORE BEER!"
