Furbo 360 Dog Camera Provides Electronic Dog Sitter

Furbo 360° Dog Camera
July 6, 2022

I’ve had a dog or two for most of my life. My current furball suffers from pretty bad separation anxiety. This has led to a few crazy situations when I’ve been away. One place she feels very safe is in her crate, though leaving her in the crate for more than a few hours isn’t possible. So today I’ll look at a potential solution. I’ll provide an Amazon link that does earn me a small amount if you use it to purchase. Beyond that, I’ve received nothing for writing this.

Today we’re going to talk about the Furbo 360° Dog Camera and how it can help you interact with your dog when you are away. First and foremost it includes a 1080p wide-angle camera so you can see your dog and the camera pans to follow your dog. If the room is dark, no problem as the camera includes infrared night vision. You can view the camera from your phone and more than one phone can be linked to a single Furbo.

Along with the camera is two-way audio. You are able to talk to your dog through the Furbo and it can transmit your dog’s barks and whines back to you. Just think of it as a way to video-call your dog at any time. I’m thinking this might be tricky with my dog as she completes ignores having a phone (on a video call) held in front of her and she very rarely barks. But maybe the other features of the Furbo could get her to engage.

What is the other big feature? It tosses out treats! Overall it can hold around a 4 ounce bag of small treats. Push a button on your phone a a treat gets launched. That’s definitely another way to keep your dog engaged with the Furbo.

The live-stream video and treat tossing is an included service with more features available with a premium subscription. That includes recordings of your dog based on events. For example, it can start recording if your dog is barking, whining or howling.

While it is possible it would be helpful for me and my dog, I’m going to hold off ordering one. She just doesn’t interact with video calls, rarely barks and isn’t always motivated by treats. So while the Furbo isn’t terribly expensive, it would be an investment that may not pay off for me. Would it be helpful to you and your dog? I’d love to hear about it.
