It breaks our hearts but, at one point…

we all will have to go through it – leaving your dog home alone and not knowing what’s happening! Makes me cry just thinking about it! (lol) 

There’s a first time for everyone and that’s why I’m here sharing the experience of having a dog cam.

I, for instance, am slightly overprotective, but you have got to agree with me…

Having a new dog is already very stressful. Now, leaving your dog home alone, without knowing if they will be ok? If the will bark? Destroy the house? Geez!

So if you haven’t thought about it yet, maybe a cam will help you to have some peace of mind while you need your hours away from your furry baby.


I particularly dread buying things I don’t understand and I am a hopeless review freak, so I never purchase anything that doesn’t with some good honest testimonials.

Nowadays with so many different places to search, looking for something to buy can be a daunting task.

There are SO many types with different prices and different things they, even night vision and throwing treats! Cool huh? So how am I going to know which one is the best? Reviews! So I decided to do my part!

You’re thinking about price and functionalities here!  On my search I tried to englobe the best specs with the best price.

I went on a thorough search on eBay and Amazon, and here’s the finalist!

This is the camera I actually bought and I absolutely love it.
Pet cam

If you think about the price, between $30 and $40, it’s a fair price to pay on a camera with so many specs and free delivery! Who doesn’t love a free delivery, right? And a fast one too! In less than one week I had it here and ready to use.

It doesn’t throw treats but, to be honest, when I got the camera I didn’t know how well it would work and how much I’d use it, so I wasn’t ready to invest in one that did. I have absolutely nothing against the idea of having one, but I do fear Mia might eventually just attack the camera to get all the treats… could that happen?

It’s small and easy to install wherever you like in the house. But try to put on a place you know where your dog stays the most. It’s simpler this way to see what’s happening.

You can also keep it outside for example – it says it’s an inside camera, but if you keep it sheltered, I don’t see why not – and make sure that your annoying neighbour is telling the truth about your dog barking at night with the night vision and audio detection!

Both specs work really well and there’s a two-way audio too. You can talk to the dog! So, if you hear a bark, cry or howl, you can simply give your command and marker word to your dog calm down and stay quiet. Easy!

Besides all that, you have the advantage of having a 360-degree rotation with body sensor. The camera will literally follow the motion it captures.

And it’s all controlled by an app on your cell phone! You connect it on your Wifi, and you install the app which is supported by Android and iPhone.

Imagine watching your pup from your screen anytime, anywhere! Recording it to show your friends and family what a damn cute dog you have got!
Or even to get rid of your neighbours’ accusations!

Whenever is the time to check on your dog, this little camera will help you!

    Being able to keep track of my doggies’ wellbeing will definitely make my annual holiday time much more enjoyable. Never thought about getting a camera, though. This was a very insightful post. It really made me think about researching the topic more. Great article. Thanks. Did you maybe came across one of these made exclusively for outdoor use? I wonder how my dogs would react to one of these.

    1. admin says:

      I did actually. I originally wanted an outside camera, but the ones I found didn’t have two way audio and when I finally bought one that did, I didn’t agree with my wifi for some reason, so I couldn’t install it.

      If you do find a good outdoor camera, please let me know. I would love to review it.

    Many thanks to you for sharing such a beautiful article with us and I have found through you a necessary camera that will protect my home. I have a dog and I love my dog very much .And I’m a working woman so I worry a lot about my dog at home when I’m in my office .So I think this camera is a very important camera for me and I can monitor what my dog is doing when I’m in the office and I want to buy it very soon. I hope that after reading your article, many will understand the importance of this camera and they will share their experiences with you.

    1. admin says:

      I hope this camera is as useful to you as it has been to me!

      Watching your pup from a distance and knowing they are safe a sound and relaxin is priceless. 

      Please let me know how you go with it!

    I can totally relate to the relentlessness that comes with leaving your four-legged companion at home especially the first time. I had considered a dog cam after getting the recommendation from a close pal. But like you, I never make a purchase with thoroughly researching the honest experience of other users. Also, as you said, it can be daunting looking for the ideal fit with the plethora of options available. I must say, this recommendation would actually come in handy. I like the two-way audio system and the motion detector. I also think the price is fair.

    1. admin says:

      It’s very hard to invest a lot in something new. 

      This camera has such a good price that I felt it was worth giving it a go and I really don’t regret it!

      The app is amazing as well. I feel the problem with most is that the app doesn’t work well but, with this one, you don’t have to worry. 

      Please let me know how you go!

    Thanks a lot, I did this in my house – I have a cam in my house. Although my intention is to check what house help did in my absence, but you have made me see that it can also work for my dogs.I have two dogs at home and they bark at night, in fact I have had cases where my neighbor complains of my dog jumping over to dig in her compound.Using this cam will save a lot of argument.

    1. admin says:

      Same thing happened to me! You can find out just how much truth there is to the neighbours statements. 

      Some people complain too much. So might have some reason. This camera will sort it out 🙂

  5. Katja says:

    It breaks my heart every time that I have to leave my cavalier at home. It doesn’t help that she always looks at me with those big sad eyes, that know she will be alone for a while. I was always playing with the idea of buying a camera to be able to check on her while I’m gone. 

    I will check your recommendation, because for the price it has, it feels like a good bargain. Especially because there is a two-way audio feature, too. Ok, now I definitely want it 🙂

    1. admin says:

      I feel exactly the same way!

      Yes, this camera is a bargain, works so well for such a decent price! I hope you love it as much as I do!

      Please let me know!

    Hi I found your article very useful and informative. I have learnt a lot from your post.Its very important to track your dogs activity at home while you are away .The camera you mention has so many good features like 360 full coverage ,Alarm video recording, motion detetion.Two way audio etc. 

    Thanks for sharing this great article.

    Keep up the good work!

    I never thought about a camera to check on your dog while you are away at work or just running errands, what a great idea. And since I never thought of this, it also means I wouldn’t know which cam to buy.

    You made me giggle a little when you said that you are a review freak. I remember one time I was planning to buy a product and I spent two days reading reviews on it before I actually proceeded to order it. I am really bad when it comes to ordering something that I have never used before. I have to read on it, sleep on it, pray on it lol.

    OK, this camera sounds awesome, you got me at seeing if your neighbors are being truthful about your dog barking at night. I also like the 360 degrees rotation with body sensor. also the fact that you can soothe the dog if he/she starts barking or howling.

    This is an amazing idea, and it’s not only about worrying about the dog annoying the neighbors with barking, its also about not staying so long without seeing your fur baby, plus the fact that you can talk to the dog, makes the dog feel less lonely during the hours that you are not home.

    This is super awesome.


    1. marina says:

      lol Rose,

      from one review freak to another, I am sure you will love this cam!

      Please let me know if you get it and if you like it 🙂

    Great post and very educational, I didn’t know there is such a camera. I don’t have a dog yet but we were thinking of getting one, definitely this camera will in handy and I love that it have 360-degree rotation with body sensor and controlled via an app. it look like a very convenient tool.

    Does it work with batteries? 

    Can you use this camera to just monitor your house when you are around?

    1. marina says:

      Hi Princess,

      Thanks for your comment. 

      Yes, this camera is so good, and the price is fair!

      No, the camera is main powered, so you need to connect it to power at all times.and yes, I use it to monitor my house as well. It does not record non stop though, but it does have a body sensor alarm, so, if you turn it on in an empty house and someone moves (like a burglar) your phone will notify you that someone is the the house and then you can turn the app on and tap record.

      I don’t use the function too much, because with Mia here, I would be getting notifications all the time lol.

      please let me know if that makes sense.

    Hello Larissa, thank you for sharing this helpful post and review in a way to help us keep good track of how dog being when we are not with them. I love the idea of using a cam.

    This is a nice way of monitoring our dog. Sometimes, our job or something may keep us away from our pet and it is very normal to think of what our dog may do when it’s alone. Thoughts like, “Will he cause damage? Will he feel depressed? What will be is reaction?” All these keeps coming up. That’s why your idea of having a camera is very nice.

    1. marina says:

      Hi James,

      You are right! I absolutely love seeing that she is having a nap when I’m away! eases my heart 🙂

  13. Leon says:

    I have thought of this before now but hadn’t put in any effort to get one to monitor my German Shepherd. My dog is very nice and fun to be with and he can do very absolutely well without me. But then, it’s nice to have a device to monitor and see how he’s doing. I’ll try this.
