When you walk out of your place and the last thing you see is your dog staring at you with the literal puppy-dog gaze, itâ€™s a heart-wrenching moment.
It kind of makes you feel like a bad dog parent leaving them there alone (even when youâ€™ve already asked your boss at work if they can change the companyÂ pet policy).
Ever wish there was a way that you could keep an eye on your dog throughout the day while theyâ€™re at home? The good news is, now you can.
There has been only oneÂ interactive camera designed for dogs so far â€“ Furbo Dog Camera. Itâ€™s not your standard camera as it lets you see, talk, and toss treats to your dog when youâ€™re not even there.
The future is here, and itâ€™s all about dogs.
But the wild thing is, itâ€™s not even just a dog camera with aÂ 1080p and 160Âş wide-angle lens, two-way audio, and night vision.
FurboÂ also mimics the most fun human-dog interaction: The sacred art of treat tossing. It makes a clicking sound before tossing aÂ treat which helps your dog establish a positive feeling towards Furbo (double aww).
Itâ€™s been designed to detect barking so you can be notified when something might be going on while your four-legged friend is holding the fort at home. This could help show signs of separation anxiety, boredom, or notify you about emergency situations.
Take a look at how celebrity dog trainer Zak George uses Furbo to improve the quality of dogsâ€™ lives. (Warning: Watch out for FEELS.)
Other home monitors send general motion and sound alerts, but Furbo only notifies users of real-time dog-related events.
When your dog is chewing or jumping on your furniture, Furbo will let you know via the dog activity alert notification. Youâ€™ll know your pooch is safe (and making themselves at home), while it will also help you identify separation anxiety through patterns like constant pacing or licking feet.
It gets smarterâ€¦ (and even cuter) with a dog selfie alert.
Yup. Dog selfies.
Furbo knows when your dog is looking towards the camera, taking the most precious selfies. So, at that time, youâ€™ll receive a notification on your phone with a snapshot of your dogâ€™s adorable face.
Furbo will also let you know when a human comes into view. The person alert sends out a notification whether a dog walker is scheduled to stop by or if an intruder enters your home. This gives you peace of mind in knowing that your dog is safe at home alone.
Everyoneâ€™s favourite talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, speaks highly of Furbo dubbing it â€śThe #1 Gift on Every Dog Loverâ€™s Wishlist.â€ť Lifestyle influencer and star of The Hills, Lauren Conrad agrees: â€śFurbo is a must-have for all of us who are dog owners.â€ť
If, by now, youâ€™re thinking that this dog camera could help you feel better about leaving your place every morning, nowâ€™s the perfect time to invest in one because Furbo is having its biggest ever sale from July 16 (starting at 12 pm PST) through July 20.
The future-forward dog cam is normally priced atÂ $299 (CAD), but youâ€™ll be able to snap it up for $199 during the short sale. Order yours via Amazon or Furboâ€™s official website and prepare for great change.
