Setting up an Amazon Dot with no smart phone/Amazon account?

I purchased an Amazon Dot as a gift for my father & it just occurred to me that he doesn't have an Amazon account or smart phone. I have 2 Dots & an Echo at my place so would it be possible to set up the Dot at his place using the Alexa app on my phone? Thanks guys.

I did the same thing for my parents last year. Took it to their house and set it up with my phone and account, no problem. They just used it for music and weather stuff, so it was fine.

As long as they have Wi-Fi, you should be good.
