The Furbo Dog Camera Is a Must Have For the Good Pup in Your Life
November 27, 2017
Stories about dogs and cats are a dime a dozen, but what’s not often talked about is just how hard it can be to leave your furry loved one behind. Be it for a weekend getaway or just a long day at the office, you’d be hard-pressed to find a single pet owner who doesn’t find themselves wondering how their four-legged friend is doing while they’re away. But with the Furbo Dog Camera ($199), there’s a quick and easy way to check anytime, day or night, and to show your pet how much you care.
The market for products that seek to fill the pet-shaped hole in your away-from-home life is huge and ranges from Uber-like dog walking services to impromptu pet selfie-snapping devices. But Furbo does a whole bunch of things — from sending you alerts when there’s sudden movement to letting you shower your dog with treats. That makes it a whole hell of a lot easier to avoid separation anxiety, with just a few taps on your phone. I spent a week using the Furbo, and while I fully acknowledge that I’m in the minority and use the dog-focused device to look after my cat, I can unequivocally say that it’s made me feel a little more connected to him when I’m not there to tell him he’s a good boy.
