The Furbo interactive dog camera was released in April 2016 by Tomofun to allow loving dog owners to monitor and reward their dog while they are away from home. The Furbo dog camera is still being produced and sold currently, and is widely accessible all across the world. While the Furbo dog camera is beneficial for all dog owners who want to check in on their pets, it can be especially useful for those who have dogs that sometimes like to act mischievous when their owners leave the house.
The Furbo dog camera has never had any recalls, as recalls tend to be quite rare for cameras. However, in 2021 a woman complained that her Furbo dog camera was hacked. After an investigation by the company, it was determined that her Wi-Fi was hacked and not the Furbo itself.
Furbo was the first interactive dog camera invented and sold, so there have been quite a few different interactive dog cameras that have tried to replace Furbo. The main issue that can drive consumers away from the Furbo Dog Camera is the price, at $169.00. Petcube Bites 2 Lite is the most common competitor, which sells for $70 cheaper than the Furbo. The Furbo dog camera still remains a #1 best seller on Amazon.
The Furbo dog camera itself is a small white device with an hourglass shape. It has a brown removable top with a black camera sitting underneath. In the middle of the device, you will see a circular opening where the treats are tossed out. At the bottom of the front of the device is the brand name, "Furbo."
