(Scroll down for video) When you are outside and get hungry or thirsty, what do you do? You run to the nearest vending machine of course, and buy your favorite snack or drink, but what about if your dog suddenly feels hungry?

Now, the world’s first vending machine for dogs has been launched in London, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The vending machine, was first installed on Clapham Common, London, features a toy canine bone lever that the dog needs to pull, and a toy to shoot a tennis ball.

After the ball hits the right spot, mimicking the action of a person inserting a coin for a normal vending machine, animals are rewarded with delicious dog food.

The machine, was built to foster “fun and exercise” between owners and their pets, and it also uses sounds to encourage dogs to retrieve the ball.

“This is an amazing idea. I always panic outside when my dog suddenly goes hungry and I don’t have a treat for it. Now, all my problems are solved. I hope the vending machines are installed next to all normal vending machines that sell drinks and snacks for humans, so when I buy myself a treat the dog can buy one too,” Camilla Dubose, 53, of London, England told after learning about the dog vending machines.

The spokesperson for the company who launched the machines said: “Bakers Complete, is delighted to have served dogs for over 20 years, with delicious food, and now we designed a puppy vending machine designed with the needs of dogs in mind, rewarding each dog that interacts properly with the machine with a delicious treat.”Mobile video not loading?
