Puppy Tweets is an electronic dog tag with a sensor that is attached to a dog’s collar. The new device detects a dog’s movements and sounds and sends a variety of Tweets to a Twitter page that can be set up for a dog.According to Rachel Cooper of Mattel Inc., the new novelty is aimed at the pet loving social network crowd.

According to information received there are 500 tweets programmed into the software that comes with the device, which is available in blue or pink colors. The frequency of messages is directly related to the activity level of the dog.A very active dog may tweet a message like: “Chasing everything that moves is definitely a full time job!”. In order to prevent repetition Mattel was adding 200 free tweets this week to the message library.

With a limited number of the tags that went on sale earlier the year, some users complained about software problems. Mattel confirmed that it had worked on resolving the problems.
