Furbo vs Petcube vs Petzi (Options O’Plenty) Which Pet Camera is Right For Me

Which Pet Camera is right for me?

Let me start by saying, simply calling these technologies, a Pet Camera doesn’t do them justice, as they are chock full of fun, useful, Interactive, and premium remote features.

Well Hello there, Welcome to K9 Nation. The name is Will, and I have been a K9 Behavioral Psychologist in the greater Portland area for over ten years, and I’m always looking for new products and techniques to help my clients with their dog in a variety of ways.

I decided to create K9 Nation for 3 reasons

  1. To be a resource for all dog owners who want to learn how to train their own dogs, on their own property, and in their own time.
  2. To help dog lovers to shop smart for their dogs, by making the mistakes for you, so I can point you directly to the products and services that are worth your time and hard-earned money.
  3. To fund the building and of the K9 Nation K9 Sanctuary (Where dogs can live free without fear)

Many of my clients tell me they wonder what their dogs are doing while they’re away from home, especially if it’s a new puppy, an older dog with health issues

…or a dog that has separation anxiety. Now, with this amazing new technology, they can see for themselves exactly what’s going on, and put their minds at ease


…and even interact with their pets remotely, with Full HD 1080 Video and 2 Way Audio, over the internet, with a free app, you can install on your smartphone or tablet.

and if that wasn’t enough, you can even dish-out a treat to them whenever you want, remotely, or set it to automatically deliver a treat to your dog every hour or so.

With all the info, I, as well as my participating clients have gathered, on this pet tech, I just had to write this review, for all those looking at a Treat Dispensing Camera,

If you’re really on a budget | and can do without:

  • an Interactive laser game,
  • and treat dispensing capabilities,

but still want:

  • full 1080 HD Video
  • 2 Way Audio, Talk and Listen
  • Night Vision
  • Free Downloadable App

The Wansview Wireless 1080P IP Camera may be the ticket.

 Conclusion | The decision

The Furbo and the Petcube Bites are both great choices with plenty of options. The decision you have to make here

  • do you want an all in one treat cam unit that looks good enough to put out on a coffee or end table, and services just one room, ie Furbo?
  • or do you want multi-room capabilities so you can follow your dog or an intruder from room to room with your smartphone or tablet, ie Petcube Bites with an additional Petcube Play for each room you want to extend the audio & video technologies?

There are others pet cameras or treat dispensing cameras out on the market, that I did not include in this article as they were all lacking in ways that Furbo and Petcube excelled at, for their prospective price points, and the only reason why I included the Petzi as it is very popular, but the quality and options are not there yet.



So from Will @ K9 Nation,

thanks so much for stopping by,

I hope this article helped you to make a more informed decision,

on behalf of your pets,

and I hope to see again soon…
