Furbo Dog Camera
A couple of days ago, I was discussing with an acquaintance whether a pet camera is an essential or a luxury. I was of the opinion that it is an essential. Until recently, I had a full time job and of course missed Ari a lot during the day. I was always worried that he has hurt himself, or hasn't eaten properly or he is being naughty again. So, when Furbo recently approached me to try their new dog camera, I was very excited. What caught my attention was the fact that it tosses treats, I mean a treat tossing camera, I had to see it for myself! The second thing that caught my eye was the beautiful minimal design.
Overall what we liked about Furbo -
Design - Sleek, lightweight design that can fit into any style of interiors. No need to hide the camera, you can in fact flaunt this one.
Easy set-up - The camera literally just needs to be plugged in and filled up with treats, no other physical set-up is required. The Furbo app needs to be downloaded on the phone and is very user-friendly and easy to understand.
Ari's reaction - At first Ari was a bit apprehensive, the way he usually would be around anything new. I followed their guidelines and held some treats near the treat dispensing area and tossed them manually to Ari. This sort of warmed him up to the device. When I first tried this through the app, the default sound that played while dispensing the treats scared him a tiny bit. But, Furbo has an option to record your own sound in place of the default one. So, I recorded my own voice and it worked much better. Now, Ari runs to grab the treat and then looks at the camera for the next one :)
Our verdict - Furbo is truly a fabulous blend of technology and design. In fact it makes a great christmas gift for both human and hound.
Below is a little video taken through Furbo :) Like I mentioned before, I recorded my own voice in place of the default sound.
