I Got One Of Those Interactive Cameras To Watch My Dog At Home All Day, And Here's What That Was Like

Spoiler alert: no ghosts were spotted — just one confused dog.

As you can see, Vincent loves spending most of his time right next to me, which made me scared to leave him alone. I worried that he would get separation anxiety, chew up the couch, or bark all day and annoy my neighbors.


Then, one day, a Furbo dog camera arrived at our office, and I was allowed to take it home. It was if universe knew exactly what I had been worrying about — and offered what seemed like the perfect solution:


That weekend, I decided to put the dog camera to another test by going out partying for the first time since we moved. It all seemed to go swimmingly, until I got this notification at 2 a.m.

Of course, I immediately became terrified that Vincent had encountered a burglar, a ghost, or worse!

I opened the dog camera app on my phone, and realized that even though I couldn't see Vincent, I could hear him barking.

And after trying to talk to him through the app, I realized he must have gotten stuck or locked in a room. So I jumped into a taxi, went home, and rescued him!

So, it turned out that my dog camera really did come in handy — especially when it came to saving poor Vincent from being stuck in the closet!

In conclusion, the Furbo dog camera is pretty dang useful...

At $239, it's not cheap, but the interactivity, treat dispenser function, and app are especially great for owners who want to be able to interact with their dogs all day.
