Japanese Aibo Commands

This is a compilation of Japanese commands to use with the Aibo ERS-1000. Primarily for use on Japanese imported dogs that do not have cloud access/registration/etc. and no ability to change to english language.

The English description below is the English approximation of the Japanese Aibo instruction/command, not the literal English translation as this is often different in Japanese. The translations and phonetic descriptions are not 100%, but many sounds and meanings don’t have literal equivalents. Some of the phonetic descriptions are still slightly vague (e.g. below “bow” rhymes with “row”) – please use the recordings to help with pronunciations. Aibo is very advanced but may struggle with lots of ambient noise in a room or environment, these noises can also come from within (i.e motors etc.) so, as you would with a child - try to be patient!
