An interesting highlight on this model is that there are no physical artifacts associated with a dog being left at home. This shows a potential opportunity area for an intelligent smart home agent.

Lifecycle Model

This model shows the amount of attention people give to their dog throghout the dog's life. When people first get a puppy they spend a lot of time playing and give it a lot of attention. Then as the puppy grows it becomes a regular member of the family. Finally, in its older age, the dog usually needs more care and attention.
