Furbo Dog Camera With Automatic Treat Tosser (Review)

Picture of the furbo dog camera in my home

We love our springer spaniel Molly, she’s a cheeky little character, full of fun and mischief! The hardest part of the day for me is when I have to go out and leave Molly behind. Her little face looking up at me, it’s like she’s saying, “please take me with you.” It gets me every time! That’s why I was soooo excited to receive, and review, the Furbo Dog Camera With Automatic Treat Tosser I couldn’t wait to put it to the test to see exactly what it does. Could it help in any way to alleviate any stress, and anxiety, that Molly suffers with when left alone?( This product was gifted to me for a honest review)

Furbo Dog Camera With Automatic Treat Tosser (Review)

I was really impressed with the Furbo packaging, it’s always the little things isn’t it! I loved the dog paw printed tissue paper, and paw printed cellophane that the dog treats were wrapped in. I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to anything dog related 🙂 My first impression as I opened the box was how sleek and well designed the Furbo was, which is definitely an added bonus. I love that it’s easy to wipe down and keep clean. You can place it anywhere in the home, where you have wi-fi. The bamboo lid comes off easily to add the little treats. The wood top also gives the Furbo an added warmth, which I really like. I think the clean and simple design would complement most home décor’s.

Getting Started

I’m not the best when it comes to anything techy! I have to say Furbo must be the simplest piece of equipment I have ever set up:)

1, Plug in Furbo ( in range of wi-fi)
2, Wait for status light to turn green
3, Download the Furbo app and follow the simple set up instruction’s.

It’s that simple! As soon as you’ve uploaded the app, you can instantly see the whole of your room. I moved the Furbo quite a lot at the beginning, trying different heights and positions to find the best place to see Molly. That’s about the hardest part of setting it up.

This is Molly above, from the Furbo app. The best feature for me is the 2 way mic that helps me speak to Molly whilst I’m out of the house. Her whole face lights up as soon as she hears my voice. It’s easy to use, just press the little mic icon at the bottom right of your screen and chat away. I also love the treat tossing button, which you can see in the middle of the screen. Just swipe the treat icon up to release a treat, or two! Which just brightens up Molly’s day. To the left of the screen are video and photo icon options. You only have to give permission in the Furbo app to allow you to use these options.

Introducing Your Dog To Furbo

We’ve had our Furbo since January 2019, so a couple of months now. Molly and I love this device, but in the beginning it did take Molly a couple of hours to get familiar with it!

I think the main reason for this was the noise the Furbo made when it dispersed the treats. It’s not loud as such, but alien to Molly’s ear’s. On the Furbo App there are lots of tips and advice to help with any niggles you may have. For me the training video by Zac George, who is a professional dog trainer. Explained how to introduce the Furbo perfectly! I hope you love the link below.

My Summary Of The Furbo Dog Camera With Automatic Treat Tosser

Pro’s

1, Allows you to talk and see what your dog is up to when you’re not at home
2, Dispenses treats as and when you want with a swipe of a button
3, Allows you to take great quality photos and record short videos. Any time day or night
4, Connect to a FREE app which is available for both iOS and Android devices
5, Alerts you when your dog is barking

Con’s
The only disadvantage for me is that you can only fit a certain size of treat into the dispensing unit. Anything bigger than 1cm could get jammed.

This is a great piece of equipment for our family. Interacting with Molly when we can’t be together, takes away any stress of thinking,” I wonder what Molly is doing, is she ok”?! My 3 year old son James also loves talking to Molly and swiping the treat tossing button whilst we’re out. It really does put your mind at ease. I would recommend Furbo to all dog lovers everywhere. Have a great week!

Love
