When most people bring a dog into their home, they understand that it comes with a lot of new responsibility. The dog has to be walked, fed and cleaned up after.

The Ford Motor Company has developed a dog-walking robot, it’s a "dog nanny."

The gadget uses navigation software and sensors to find its way around as it’s walking the dog – and features speakers that let owners talk to and reassure their dog.

It also provides water and treats for the dog along the way and uses a vacuum to clean up if the dog makes a mess in the street. (Daily Mail)
