Purpose of pet survey
Research into the reassured map object have demonstrated it to be unresponsive, therefore I will explore what dog tribe member are drawn to. I will then look into applying thoughs traits into a social thing that member of the tribe can engage with while having the opportunity to use their observational skills to explore.

Summary of controversial points that spark conversations
Raising Dogs: The interaction of raising, and training the dog enagages members of the tribe and leads them to seek advice.
Active routine: The active routine of walking and playing with the dog gets the tribe member out of the house and even leads to shared activities with other dogs.
Memorable behaviour: The dog has random momnets of behaviour that creates stories shared betwean members of the tribe.
While there are a variety of traits that members of this tribe are drawn to, I was particularly interested by their response that dog behaviour are memorable and appear alive, unlike the cold statistical responses of technology. I will move forward finding ways to adapt these traits to technology so that they may more actively engage with the social thing.
