Leaving a dog alone while you are at work doesn’t need to be stressful for you or your dog.A treat dispensing dog camera can never replace human company. However, they are the next best thing. We all have commitments that mean our dogs will have to be left home alone for periods of time.
Here are my picks for the best treat dispensing dog cameras to keep your dog happy when home alone.
The Furbo Dog Camera provides most of the functions that other treat-dispensing cameras do. However, it does have functions that a lot of other competing products don’t have.
This treat dispensing Dog Camera not only allows you to keep an eye on your dog or give her the occasional treat. It also automatically detects the presence of people. This is a great bonus for home security as well. The Furbo can even take selfies of your dog automatically when it detects your dog looking straight into the camera!
It is a feature-packed pet camera and boasts a wider lens (160 degrees) than most other pet cameras do. It provides night vision capabilities for viewing your pet at night, as well as 4x optical zoom.
The Furbo Dog Camera features a microphone and speaker, which enable two-way communication with your pet. It also includes a bark sensor developed to specifically detect the sound of your dog barking. When the sensor is triggered, it sends a signal to your phone, which gives you the chance to check up on your dog and make sure everything is alright. With the two way speaker, you can talk to them to calm them down.
In addition, it has plenty of capacity for treats and can hold over 100 pieces.
