Exploring the Opportune Moment for Remote Computer-mediated Interactions with Home-alone Dogs
We argue for research on identifying opportune moments for remote computer-mediated interactions with home-alone dogs. We analyze the behavior of home-alone pet dogs to find specific situations where positive interaction between the dog and toys is more likely and when the interaction might induce more stress. We highlight the importance of considering the timing of remote interactions with pet dogs and the potential benefits it brings to the effectiveness of the interaction, leading to greater satisfaction and engagement for both the pet and the pet owner.
