ROICO is a pet startup in the Republic of Korea established in 2018. As the proud and lucky owners of dogs, we realized that we experienced immense guilt whenever I left them at home. Upon our return home, they exhibited signs of separation anxiety. We experimented with toys (even with IoT technology) on the market, yet none seemed to do the trick. That’s why we developed Treatoi, the world’s first automatic treat ball dispenser.
We aim to make a better life for people and pets through creative ideas even when people can’t be with their pets. We focus on what truly helps people and pets to live together, not just technology. Based on this thinking, we provide products and services of high quality with eco-friendly materials.
