It seems like pet cameras are all the rage now! And by that, I mean cameras with which you can video call your pets. If you are thinking “Get outta here!”, you’re echoing my sentiments when I first heard about these. You’ve heard of newer video calling apps like Zoom and stuff for people, but for dogs??? But as I started thinking about this, it made sense.
Dogs often experience separation anxiety when they are away from their owners. And you know what else? Some people get really nervous too, when they are away from their dogs! Haha. But in all seriousness, people do tend worry about what their dogs (or cats for that matter) are up to when they are away, and whether they are getting into any trouble, getting too bored, and so on. So upon further thought, I realized that the idea of video chatting with your furry friends is not as ridiculous as it first sounds.
Some of the more known brands are PetChatz HD, Pawbo, and Petzi. You can get the right camera for your particular needs by doing your homework before getting one. Some allow your dog to see you as well. Others just allow your dog to hear you, but you can see it. Some will even let you give your dog a treat remotely! You can read more about them at the TipTopDogz site.
If you do end up getting one for your dog, do let me know what you think of it. Does your dog like it? Do you?
