Review: Furbo, The World's First Treat-Tossing Dog Camera

Last year right around Easter I was perusing my Facebook wall and came across an ad about backing a project on Indiegogo. This caused me to stop dead in my tracks. I couldn't pull out my credit card fast enough. A dog camera that would allow you to see, talk, hear, and throw treats at your furbaby, say what?! I needed proof so I played back a cute video on how this Furbo dog cam would allow me to check in on my dogs throughout the day and talk to them via the two way microphone. I could take photos of them, record cute things that they were doing and best yet click a button to dispense treats.

Yup, it was true, where's the credit card?

I backed this project in April 2016 and received my camera four months later. I've never been so excited to open a package before.

For almost a year no I've had entirely too much fun showing my friends my dogs using my Furbo phone app versus showing them photos of my dogs on my phone.

Sometimes I will be stuck in traffic, and will play music for them while I'm on my way home. I know that sounds crazy, but who really isn't crazy about their furkids?

Having the Furbo dog camera has given me such peace of mind. There is a barking alert which I really quite enjoy, it lets me know when maintenance is in my apartment and when the UPS man is knocking on my door while I'm away.

The Furbo dog cam also allows me to log into it during times where I've needed to hire a dog sitter, I can see how my dogs are being treated and if the sitter is in fact there for 30 minutes of the paid time or just for 5 minutes.

I don't think I've loved a product I've purchased as much as I love this one. It's great to be able to check on my dogs with the click of a button from anywhere in the world.

With this product I have also been able to uncover who knocks over the trash can, to my surprise I've been wrong for the past decade! It was my 4lb dog instead of my 10lb dog. Here I was for years putting the wrong one in time out. Since Furbo, I've moved the trash can into a closed closet and my dogs have had more daily treats and random 80's afternoon jam sessions than ever before.

Thank you Furbo for this pawsome product, get yours here:

The treats that I have found to best work with the Furbo dog cam are these, they are small and perfectly dispensed through the camera, they are also low calorie which you'll soon find out that is a plus because you will notice an increase of treat giving once you get this camera!
