Imagine if you could see what your pet is up to when you’re out of the house? Your dog could no longer blame the cat for chewing your slippers, and the cat could no longer point the paw at your dog for shredding the curtains!
Do you have a dog that feels insecure when it’s alone and would benefit from hearing your voice? Have you been told your dog barks when you leave the house?

- Speak to your dog and hear what they’re up too through the two-way chat
- Toss your dog a treat
- Take photos and record video of your dog and/or cat
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I was given a Furbo Dog Camera in exchange for my review. With a dog and two cats I was excited to put the Furbo Dog Camera to the test and find out what Edie and cats Lily and Lloyd are up too when I’m not around. I only share information on products that I feel would be of interest to my readers, and only products that I would personally use or have my pets use.
Initial thoughts of the Furbo Dog Camera:
Appearance: Sleek and stylish is what came to mind when I first opened the packaging of the Furbo Dog Camera. The Furbo would fit with any decor and not look out of place.
App installation: Easily downloaded the Furbo Dog Camera app from the App Store or Google Pay.
Setup: The most technically challenged person (me included) would have no problem setting up the Furbo Dog Camera. What’s easier than placing the Furbo Dog Camera where you want it, plug it in and connect to your Wi-fi? It’s just that easy!
Treat Dispenser: Open the wooden lid, place your preferred treats or kibble up to the marked “fill line” and close the lid. An extremely important aspect of the treat dispenser for me was that I not be restricted to using a specific treat but could use Edie’s own kibble.
The first decision was where best to place the Furbo. Originally I placed the Furbo Dog Camera up high on a cabinet, but with a small dog soon found it was best to place it closer to the ground so I could get a better view of Edie and our cats.
For my first test of the Furbo Dog Camera I stayed in the house but moved to a different room away from Edie. I opened the Furbo app were I could view Edie and called her through the speaker. Edie was confused at first, not understanding where my voice was coming from. I’m sure it didn’t help that laughter was emanating from the other room as I viewed Edie thru the Furbo phone app, I believe I was having the most fun at this point 😉
To help Edie understand and to get her focused on the Furbo camera, I “tossed her a treat”. It didn’t take long for Edie to understand that hearing my voice coming from the Furbo Camera could possibly mean a treat was to follow. The Furbo is what pug’s dreams are made of! A machine that not only talks to you but tosses treats!
Once I felt Edie was comfortable and seemed to understand how the Furbo Dog Camera could work for her, I decided to leave Edie alone in the house while I went out to do my yearly fall leaf garden cleanup.
After approximately 20 minutes I decided to have a peek as to the goings on inside my house. The view from the Furbo Camera was showing me my entire living room but no Edie was to be seen. Hmm, interesting. I expected to see Edie curled up my chair but that was not the case and I was a bit surprised by this. I pressed the speaker of the Furbo app and called Edie to come. Well it appears a certain pug likes to hang out upstairs when no one’s around to cuddle with! As soon as Edie heard me, she came downstairs and stood in front of the Furbo Camera. I “tossed” one of her kibble to reinforce her coming to the Furbo camera when I called her.
Even the cats like to get in on the action of the Furbo!
As you can see by the photos, depending on the location of the Furbo Dog Camera and lighting of the room, you can get varied clarity of photos and/or video. The above was my first photo test of the Furbo and was done on a very bright sunny day. We have shutters on our windows so that contributed to the lighting and view.
With some adjustment to the shutters, I was able to get a much clearer pictures. I was surprised and encouraged that Edie was not the only one in the house that found the sounds of my voice and treats being tossed from the Furbo exciting! The cats didn’t want to miss out on the action of the Furbo Treat-Pooping Dog Camera!
Edie and cats, Lily and Lloyd all give the Furbo Dog Camera 4 paws up. As a pet owner that can’t always be at home, the Furbo gives me the comfort to know that my pets are fine and allows me see what they are up to with a simple click on my Furbo app.
What do you think you would see if you had a Furbo in your home?
