The basic features are great especially if your goal is to just be able to see and interact with your dog while you are out or at work.

The Optional Furbo Dog Nanny subscription offers more comprehensive alert notifications (including whining, howling, activity, dog selfie alerts, people alert, and other household alarms) I can see where this would be a useful tool for a new dog or one with separation anxiety. However, read the fine print.

Despite the large number of people actively living with pets, the reality is that many of those pets spend several hours of the day alone at home. For that reason, many companies have created a wide variety of gadgets that can provide them with part of the care they need during the day. One of those new technological products is smart bowls or feeders.

Losing your pet is one of the owners’ biggest fears. A pet’s microchip is not a tracker. However, today there are many options for dog trackers. Sometimes dogs often far out of our reach in parks or cats that tend to escape through windows. Trackers are useful to keep you pet safe.
Some of the most notable options are Whistle GPS Pet Tracker, which through the app, alerts you when your pet has left your home and tells you how to locate it.
