It's Nearly Time to Begin Production!

Yes, you heard us right. We are nearly ready to begin the first round of production. We've been carefully checking and testing each and every component as they have been arriving and so far things are in really good shape.

We're continuing to test, program, and tweak the software; including letting some of our own personal pups give it a try. Pretzel (pictured above) gives it his "paw of approval" Pretzel was the original inspiration for SwiftPaws, and he takes his job very seriously. Nothing goes out without his thorough inspection and approval.

We had to recently implement a minor board change and a couple of component changes/modifications; but fortunately we have a very dedicated team making sure that the "brains" inside of each and every SwiftPaws are as robust and functional as this tough little machine requires.

Our first production plastic samples are on their way to us right now, and the remaining few components are likewise expected within the next week or so. What all of this means is that we are still on-target for shipping in December, and we should be well into production as we come into the latter half of November!  We plan to have a more exact ship date for all of you by the end of November.

It's an exciting and busy time for all of us here, and we can't wait to start making each and every one of your SwiftPaws!
