Talking Dogs May Form Emotional Attachments To Their Soundboards

By Woof Meow Hello Staff January 01, 2021

Stella, the original talking dog, appears to have formed an emotional attachment to her recordable buttons. This comes as no surprise to anyone who has taught their dog to talk with a soundboard. After all, if it weren't for her sound buttons, Stella would not have such an easy way to communicate her wants, needs, questions, and affection.


Speech-language pathologist Christina Hunger, Stella's mom, took to Instagram to share her observations:

"Something that I’ve always found to be so special about this communication journey with Stella is how much she loves being near her device. Any time we move it into a new room, she sits or lays down right next to it.

Recently when we all went on a day trip, we brought Stella’s device with us. As soon as we set it down, she wagged her tail and said, “Yes love you.”

Some of my favorite moments of being a speech pathologist have been witnessing children get so excited when they finally have their own AAC device, and finally have a way to share their voice. Stella’s gestures and words show her excitement when she is able to share her voice too ❤️"
