We love our pets so much that it can be hard to say goodbye to their sweet, furry faces in the morning. Besides not being able to pet that furball all day, you also have to worry if he or she will get bored, which could lead to destructive behavior or even loneliness. Collective awww!

Fortunately, Droppi is here to keep your dog company when you’re away. Droppi is a device that drops treats or toys to your pets below. You choose what you want to drop and place it on the tray. They can be small treats, a ball, chew toys and even large bones. Once you know what you want to drop, you set the timer to when you want the treats to fall. You can even record a brief message to give your pet a midday “Good doggie.”

Droppi features magnetic backing so you can stick it on the fridge one day and on your washer the next to keep that little ankle-biter guessing. It also comes with a sound-activated night light in case you’ve got a dog who’s afraid of the dark (hey, it happens). But we think the best way to use Droppi is to stagger a few around your house and strategically time them to break up your pet’s day with new toys and new treats.

The device is currently raising funds on Kickstarter. They’ve got to make some leaps and bounds to reach their $35,000 goal, but we have a feeling more than a few of you out there can help them out with that. Pledge $31 and you can have one of your very own. It’s a small price to pay for both your and your best friend’s peace of mind.

Would you pickup a Droppi for your pet? What is your favorite way to entertain them while you’re away from home? Let us know in the comments.
