Okay, probably not. They’d order more treats, stat. And it turns out that’d be a smart decision.
Amazon is upping their Echo game for Alexa Pet Week with special deals and cool new pet-specific skills. Besides easy ordering for dog treats and toys, Alexa has some surprisingly fun, useful perks to offer dog people. We just had to share some of our favorites.
Our Favorite Alexa Pet Skills
Which dog breeds are hypoallergenic? How about dogs that do well in apartments? Now you can quickly find out all your breed-related questions by using Purina’s Alexa skill.
To launch the skill, say, “Alexa, Ask Purina” and Alexa will help you discover the perfect breed for you. Get details of a specific dog breed by saying the full breed name, or search and browse dogs that match your search criteria.
This skill references Rover.com’s database of the most popular dog names in the country and generates the best name for your best friend. Try it once, twice, or generate a new name for every dog you know.
It’s a fun way to find names for your puppy, a friend’s pet, or any new member of the family who’s in need of a name that’s as awesome as they are. To get it started, simply say “Alexa, ask Rover to give me a dog name.”
Corgi Facts is just what it sounds like: this Alexa skill dishes up fun tidbits about everyone’s favorite short-legged herding breed. It’s simple and surprisingly addictive!
Get your corgi facts by saying, “Alexa, ask Corgi Facts to give me a corgi fact.”
This is an audio version of the popular chat bot that delivers you random images of pugs. Now, whenever you’re feeling like it—and who isn’t?—Alexa will give you a random description of a pug. You ask for a pug, and Alexa might say, “here’s a pug whose mouth is stuffed full of french fries,” and “This pug is wearing slippers that look like pugs.”
Really, that’s it, and it’s kind of amazing.
You can see more featured skills here, including some for (gasp!) cat lovers.
Easily Order Toys, Treats, and Your Dog’s Favorite Food
Convenience doesn’t even begin to describe it. With your Echo, you can make voice orders any time. Amazon also offers up special deals for shoppers using Alexa, which you can find out about by simply asking Alexa for her deals.

The LINK AKC smart collar is a sophisticated GPS smart collar designed for dog comfort. It lets you track a lost dog, monitor activity, log vet records, receive ambient temperature alerts, and much more. And now, you can connect to it via your Echo.
This new and improved version of the popular automatic pet feeder for cats and dogs helps you feed your pet with the power of modern tech. Among its unique features, you can customize servings and food type for your pet’s specific nutritional needs. Yep, you can control your pet’s feeding from your smartphone.
