According to Sony, no two aibo companion robots will be the same. Each owner’s approach to raising their aibo shapes its personality, behavior and knowledge, creating a unique environment for growth. The aibo app will allow you to gain access to the dog’s camera and also give the dog voice commands. The aibo comes with a hefty price tag of $2,899.

According to, the top 3 most expensive dog breeds are:

  1. Löwchens – $10,000+
  2. Samoyed – $8,000 – $10,000
  3. Tibetan Mastiff – $7,000

Considering the prices of the most expensive dog breeds in the world, the aibo is a bargain. Or you could alway adopt. Aibo First Litter Edition with accessory bundle and three-year AI Cloud Plan will be available for purchase in September 2018 at a suggested retail price of $2,899.
