Leaving your pet home alone can be difficult for both you and your furry friend. It's tempting to hang out at home with your pet instead of leaving them to their own devices (a.k.a to tear the house apart). Who wants to walk away from a nervous dog who barks and whines the second you close the door behind you in the morning?
That's where the Furbo Pet Camera comes in. It allows dog moms to soothe pets even when they're apart. Furbo has an alert that will detect barking and send a push notification to your smartphone. You can then calm your dog, who might very well be ruining the UPS guy's (or your neighbor's) day.
Reviewers swear by these barking alerts, which also work for "loud noises in your house- i.e. when your CO detector is going off! Saved my dog's life!" Another user was alerted of a fire in her house by Furbo.
Furbo enables two-way chat so you can have drop-in visits with your dog, and features a wide-angle lens with HD and night vision so you can see your pet clearly no matter what time of day. When you're not home, the camera will alert you of dog activity in real time when it detects your dog getting restless (like, say, jumping on furniture or chewing on cords), and knows when your dog is facing the camera to snap adorable dog selfies (so pure!). It also features a person alert to know when your partner, dog walker, or an intruder enters the frame.
Best of all, unlike most pet cams, Furbo has a sleek and streamlined canister design — because it's filled with treats. That means you can lob over 100 treats at Fido throughout the day to distract him when he's stressed or barking, or maybe just reward him for looking particularly cute. You can also schedule treat time every day — like, for example, when you're walking out the door and need to distract your pup.
It has over 3,000 reviews on Amazon (including nearly 2,000 five-star ratings), and reviewers swear it's a godsend for dogs with separation anxiety. "It is such a huge relief to see her whine for just a few minutes and then settle in to sleep for hours," says one dog mom. "I even talked to the dog walker through the camera when he arrived." Another raves, "Every time I have to go somewhere, I now go with a new peace of mind and calm all thanks to Furbo."
