Furbo Dog Camera Review

The Furbo Dog Camera is a smart dog camera that gives you a way to see, talk, and yes even treat your pet. I really enjoyed reviewing this pet camera because it’s so much more than just a camera. The camera sports 1080p live streaming video, two way audio, and a treat tosser. The Furbo was created created with input from veterinarians and professional trainers and it shows. I reviewed over 50 different pet cameras and this one was hands down my favorite for dog own

At the time of writing this the Furbo Dog Camera has 4.1 stars out of 5 on Amazon. Reading through those reviews, most customers love the product for it’s features, picture quality, and ease of setup which are always good things when looking at a pet camera.

I did feel like it should be higher than a 4.1 rating from my experience and all the praise it gets so one of the first things I did was look through the negative reviews. It looks like that’s mainly due to a number of negative reviews from a now fixed bug with iPhone users on T-Mobile.

My experience was very much in line with most reviews. I found the Furbo to be really easy to setup, the app is nice and also easy to use. People love the picture quality, which shouldn’t be a surprise, 1080p always looks great. Most importantly people love the main selling point of this camera which is the treat tosser. They don’t find the treat dispensing function is gimmicky at all and love that they can treat their pet from their cell phone or just let Alexa handle it.

What do Furbo Dog Camera owners think about it’s video quality? In short, the vast majority of people love it! There are a couple critical reviews but after reading them almost all of them also point to connection/wifi trouble. Most times these types of problems aren’t really a problem with the product itself but with the users wifi. I didn’t personally have any problems with the unit I tested but I also have pretty good wifi. If you do have a poor signal you probably want to make sure you can place the camera relatively close to the wifi router to avoid issues.

The treat dispenser is the Furbo’s main selling point, so does it deliver? Short answer, heck yeah it does! People love the ability to toss treats and the vast majority of people report it working as advertised, I can also say that I didn’t have any problems with the treat tosser. That said, some people did complain that it wouldn’t throw treats as far as they hoped and would sometimes get stuck. Keeping the treat track clean and using the right size treats should eliminate most problems though and for anything else there is a 1 year warranty.

What Treats Should I Use?

Great question, Furbo says that any round, solid treat, smaller than the dispenser hole should work. To save you the trouble, I compiled a list of recommenced treats to use with the Furbo Dog Camera.

She was so excited to see him, talk to him and give him treats and OH BOY does she like giving him treats!

Sometimes because the motorized part does not actually go off which may be related to an internet connection issue. I usually just push the treat button again and it will dispense treats

Everything sounds great, but what if I have a problem? This is the camera really shines. The Furbo Dog Camera customer service is excellent. Not only do people praise them in their reviews but go look through the reviews yourself, there’s over a thousand and Furbo has responded to all of them, negative and positive alike.

Where to Buy

If it’s on Amazon, I almost always recommend buying from there. You just can’t beat Prime Shipping, the transparency their site offers, and their customer service. In this case Furbo actually has their own ‘store’ on Amazon, so you’re still buying direct from the manufacturer and not a 3rd party, which is sometimes the case on Amazon.

About This Review

A lot of reviewers like to add a lot of their own personal opinions about a product, so much so that you’re probably reading this saying to yourself, duh that’s the point of a review. Well, I wanted to provide a fresh take on reviews. Instead of one person telling you if it’s good or not, I go out and do my research on people using the product. I thoroughly go through people’s experience using the product to identify things it does great as well as pain points. I feel that by doing it this way, nothing gets left out. Plus wouldn’t you rather know how a thousand people felt about a product instead of just one?
