To learn the art of using the iPad and other touch screen phones, the proud owners take the dogs to Anna Grossman’s School for Dogs, where the young woman and her iPad –savvy dog teach students dozens of things they can do with the phones, including doing self-portraits.

At $50 a turn the lady who sometimes entices the dogs with peanut butter rubbed on the face of the phone, teaches them to use their noses to operate the touchscreen, push buttons and uses ‘dog apps’ to teach them to keep busy while their owners are busy.

Grossman says that making the dogs phone-savvy is a great way for pets and owners to bond, since life in the crowded city is hectic and it is often not possible for the duo to go out for a bonding walk.

We think this gives an all-new meaning to the term, “It is a dog’s life.”
