My guide dog has been eating things in the garden which he really shouldn’t be and I’m unable to monitor what he’s doing because if I’m close enough to hear him eating, he knows and obviously won’t do it.
So I have an idea.
If I can hang a wireless microphone around his neck or clip it to his collar and listen to what he’s doing on my iPhone, I’ll know when he’s eating something from in the house.
I don’t know what equipment I’ll need though. I’m guessing obviously a wireless mic, does anyone have any suggestions and an App that will allow remote monitoring of the mic but I don’t know which apps will enable this.
I did think about hanging my phone off his collar and using an EarPod in listening mode for people with hearing problems but I don’t think he’ll act naturally when he has my phone on his collar. A tiny Mic though, I don’t think he’d care about that.
If anyone has any other creative solutions to do this, I’d really appreciate any ideas. I don’t mind spending a little money but I really do want to be able to know so I can train it out of him, He’s such a great dog. It won’t take many times of catching him and him knowing I know to correct the behaviour, I just need to know how to do it.
The Rohde wireless mics that are about £150 look like quite a good option but would that allow monitoring?
Thanks so much for any help with this little project.
