Introduction: Dog Controlled Light Switch
Me and my robotics team created a light switch that dogs can operate. I am not sure quite how to train a dog but we talked to an expert and it should not be too hard.

Step 1: Supplies I Used
- Light switch to put it on
- 1/4 in. Wooden polls
- 1/2 in. dry wall screws
- painter's tape or glue
- 3-D printed parts
Step 2: Tools I Used
- 3-D printer
- Impact driver
Step 3: Design
Started by designing the switch plate. I started a rectangle then rounded it cut it in half and pushed it down a little. Then added hole for switch. Added screw holes. Next I added a lever to it to turn it light on and off. Next I created a guide that also served as scratch protection for the wall. To design that I created a rectangle. Rounded it. Cut it in half and pushed it down a little. Cut holes in it for screws. That makes the scratch plate. Then I created another rectangle. Added it to front of scratch plate. Cut holes for wooden bars.
Step 4: Printing
Print handles in glow and the dark filament. Print other parts in any other color.
Step 5: Assembling
Cut bars too length. Put switch plate on top of existing switch plate. Screw in or stick guide onto wall. Attach bars. Use glue to attach them or use painter tape to make it fit tight..
