An interactive pet camera exists now. Not only does it allow you to look in on your pets while you are away from home, but you can play with them and other pets through the app. If you or your pet(s) suffer from separation anxiety, here is help.

5 Reasons you Need an Interactive Pet Camera

Meet Petcube, the best-selling wi-fi pet camera on the market. There are so many reasons I love this camera. This shouldn’t shock anyone since it’s two of my favorite things combined – pets and gadgets! Petcube allows pet owners to watch, play, and even talk to their pets remotely from their smartphones.

5 Reasons you Need an Interactive Pet Camera

  1. Watch: See what your pets are up to while you are away. Are they curled up in a comfortable ball and completely content without you? Or, are they pacing the floors and ripping something to shreds in fear? Maybe skip that afterwork cocktail today. Seeing a room is also great for security.
  2. Play: Touch the screen to move a laser beam around for your pets to chase. This never gets old for The Grump.
  3. Exercise: If your pet sleeps the entire time you are gone, it’s good to get them up and moving a bit. If your pets are anxious, hopefully the laser beam can help them burn off some nervous energy.
  4. Entertain: Forget Angry Birds, the next time I am in a waiting room, I’ll just play with my dogs. If your pets are being lame, there are public PetCube users that let you play with their animals. I was able to play with a whole room of cats in a pet shelter. Now, that is awesome!
  5. Share: You can make your cube public, or just share it with friends and family to give others access. The settings give you a lot of control with the options. If you want, you can program it only to allow people to play with your pet during certain hours. The best part is that people don’t need the cube to play – just the free Petcube app. Of course, you can also make the cube completely private and only accessible to you.

    How awesome is this?!? I didn’t know such a device existed. I rarely leave the house, but when I do, I’m always worried that my anxiety-ridden dogs are horrified or mad, maybe even destructing the place in rage. This is the perfect solution! Thanks for sharing. Great article!

  3. We set one up recently and it’s so entertaining so see what our dog is up to while we’re away!

  4. That is the coolest thing ever. My dog loves to play and being able to engage him when I am not home would be amazing. I didn’t know this existed, and I am so excited to learn.

  5. I’m hoping to get one for Christmas!

  6. Makes me think of the movie The Secret Life of Pets. My last cat would have loved the laser.

    i definitely need one of these. i came home tonite and found my house a mess, it took me over an hour to clean up everything. i was only gone abt 5 hrs. what a mess. plants torn out of the pots, potty sheets shredded, pee, no poo by the 2 younger girls. my oldest left me a big mess. but she has dementia, almost blind, and is taking chemo. i have tarps down in my room for her. but it was still a big, big mess.

  9. Haha The video with the laser dot is hilarious! I can only imagine what my pups would do with it. The camera we have is just a normal pet cam and no where near this fun!

  10. I need one of these, one of my dogs is so naughty and he instigates trouble and the other one follows.

  11. Wow, never heard of a pet camera that does all this. Neat! I find it kinda hilarious that you can play with other peoples pets too. But sounds fun.
