What do you get when you put the responsibility of walking your dog together with a drone you fly remotely? Answer: The Laziest Pet Owner EVER.

Yeah, I said it. LAZY. And I can say that because I am lazy.

But this goes too far for even me! Dronesdirect is a drone retailer in the UK and they’ve introduced a customized version of their popular DJI Phantom 4 drone. What’s the customization about? Well, turns out it was designed to walk your dog. Yep, for you.

As the site says, there’ll be days that you just can’t find the time to walk your pup, and the Proflight Walkies Dog will take care of that silly little annoyance important job for you. It’s completely safe, with a retractable lead to keep Fifi attached to a flying death trap under control, and even better? You don’t even have to do the arduous work of controlling the drone–you can just punch a GPS route in and then watch that baby make you look like a loser like the coolest pet owner in the neighborhood!

Just think–you can let your dog get all the exercise you’re not willing to do, and keep him from being bored (because who’d want to be around your lazy bones?) at the same time. And all for the very reasonable price of about $2600.

Sure, you could pay a dog walker if you were going to be shelling out bucks like that, but why would you? I mean, it’s not like dogs are social creatures who like being with humans at all, is it?

The makers assure us that the integrated camera that allows you to see live walking through your smartphone will allow you to keep an eye on your pup even when out of sight (because you’re not so lazy that you can’t watch your phone screen) and it’ll adjust altitude for different dogs based on their weight.

As for the business of your pup… well, doing his business… how awesome is it that you’ll no longer have to worry about picking up the poop because you won’t be there???!! You won’t have to dart off after the deed is done, trying to be unseen as you leave the mess for someone else to deal with. Let’s just hope he doesn’t need to actually stop when taking a leak, though or God forbid, see the occasional critter he’d like to chase after.

That could lead to some rather disturbing consequences!
