The SainSmart Jr. was among the first robot dogs that blew me away. I mean, this dog literally behaved like a real one. The barking was as real as could be, it wagged its tail when excited, and could shake its head to get your attention. With this dog, I knew that my son was actually going to love it. Have I also told you that it could walk on its own, do some pretty dance moves, crawl sheepishly, pee, run, wag, lie down and much more?
Basically, this is your typical dog in both design and behavior. The only thing is that you don’t have to worry about cleaning a mess, collecting poop, or worrying about the house smelling of dog sweat urine, or pet hair and dander getting on your couch.

And on the top of story-telling, Durherm can also do other impressive tasks such as singing, dancing or even answering simple math questions.
In addition to that, the dog can also walk back and front with the use of the remote control. What makes the dog even more lovable is that when it always moves it tails and lights up whenever it is moving in any direction.

Moreover, this dog toy, Candy, can be very interact with players by just a touch. On top of these interactions, it has exclusive tricks waiting to share with the owner too. The more your kids play with or take care of the toy, they more Candy will do back to its owner.

By: Paw Patrol
The first time I laid my eyes on this RoboDog, I knew it was one of the best robot dog toys. By simply pressing a switch, this dog transforms into a rescue dog ready for action. The Pup Pack will develop wings ready for flight whenever you press the badge. This actually reminded me one of the favorite TV shows for kids. And considering my son is into action, rescue, and adventure, this toy will undoubtedly tickle his fancy. I was a bit surprised that it doesn’t t require any batteries meaning a low cost of ownership. And to avoid choking hazard, it should only be played by Children at the age of 3 or older.

#6. Electronic Pet Dog Interactive Puppy – Robot Harry
Robot Harry is a medium-size dog toy that come with a dimension of 5.1 x 4.7 x 7.9 inches and weight around 1.05 pounds. Harry is very responsive to a human touch and can perform pretty much anything you can find in other dog toys such as singing, dancing, barking, walking, and voicing other necessary sounds your kids might need. The instruction is very plain. If you want the dog to dance and sing, you can touch its head. However, if you want some surprise for your kids, just touch the backside. Also, this dog toy uses 3 AA batteries (already included with the purchase).
If you want to have a dog toy that can interact well with your kids, then this should be in your consideration!
#5. Hi-Tech Wireless Robot Interactive Puppy
If it weren’t for its plain white color, I would have placed the Hi-Tech interactive puppy on a better position in the list. Nonetheless, it’s still one of the amazing and most intelligent dogs around. This is very clear from the start as the dog will occasionally state its name “Dada”. Additionally, I love the long remote controllable range that improves convenience and functionality. Like other top toys, it can do a variety of tricks including crawl, lie, sit, dance, sing, and also fart. All that the user needs to do is just utter the words to allow the dog to perform the activity.
Besides, whenever the toy is inactive, it will be gone into standby mode. The dog will also perform some activities every few seconds when the time passed by to attract the owner attention like a real dog. However, if there is no interaction for a long time, Dada will go to sleep!
In addition to that, Dada comes with a creative study mode for your kids to learn while petting the dog. In this study mode, there will be alphabets appear with the lighting effect of the dog’s eyes making it a fun way for kids to learn. Also, it does not use AA, or AAA batteries. The dog operates with rechargeable battery.
#4. Zoomer Interactive Puppy, Shadow
We have seen so many robot dog toys from Zoomer in this very list. And just like others from Zoomer, there are many explanations for why this one should be considered one of the best. I should explain it short and quick. One, it is very responsive and will adhere to you very command. Two, it comes in a decent size and looks just like the real thing. Three, It’s among the most intelligent robot dogs I’ve come across, and it’s also effortless to train. Four, I love the high-quality construction that should put-up well against regular bumps, drops falls, and mishandling. Five, it can understand instructions and commands in three different languages! How about that?
#3. Yeezee Wirless Robot Puppy, Interactive Little Baby Pup
There are of course many points to talk about this Yeezee Wireless Robot Puppy. However, let me sum up only the important parts. First of all, the nose is actually a button. The activation of this button will allow the dog to sing or do a star walk for the owner. Second, the dog is talkative and playful. Sometimes, the dog will ask for food and it will be the duty of your child to feed them and stop them from staying hungry. Moreover, similar to other dog toys, the eyes also have lighting feature. The feature will be very useful in showing the feeling or emotion of the toy.
Lastly, the toy is completely rechargeable . It can be charged through the USB cable to the belly of the dog. In normal circumstance, 1-2 hour charging time can provide a 10-20 minute playtime.
#2. Zoomer Interactive Puppy
Ever since we saw this Zoomer robot puppy at my sister-in-law’s place, my wife is ever talking about it. In fact, I kind of feel that she is more excited about owning the toy than my kid. The truth is that it is not only resembles a real puppy but does almost anything a pup is supposed to do. It’s eager to follow your commands and learn new tricks; it always seems overexcited, and will occasionally scoot around.
I love how easy it is to operate the toy and how fast it seems to grasp new commands and tricks. Actually, the dog can understand commands 3 languages including English, French, and Spanish. Courtesy of the well-written and straightforward instructions, a first timer won’t have a problem issuing commands or learning how to operate the toy.

To be honest, from what I have seen so far, it is impossible for me to not rank this as best of the best robot dog toys!
After going through this article that lists down all the best robot dog toys, finding the right one shouldn’t be a problem anymore. All you need is simply picking one or few items from the list above. But the truth was that it wasn’t easy listing down the toys. Firstly, I had to makes sure that they were well built to withstand the rough handling. I mean, we all know how naughty and rough children can be, don’t we? I can’t tell you the number of times my sons and daughter have kicked or stepped on a toy because they were angry. Secondly, it had to be very realistic. Can you imagine a dog that sounds like its “purring or meowing” instead of barking, god forbids? Thirdly, it had to be within the budget. The last thing was to burn holes in my pocket and fails to afford something more beneficial. If you have gone through this review, you’ll agree with me that these accessories are worth buying for your kids, aren’t they?
