Best Dog Cameras


The safety of your pooch is paramount whether you’ve got a pup or an adult or whether you have a highly intelligent breed or otherwise. When you’re out and about on a walk you can keep an eye on him or her or them with your own eyes, but how do you know they’re ok when you’re not there? It can be difficult leaving your dog alone at home not knowing what they’re up to and if they’re OK. Thankfully, with the use of modern technology it’s possible to keep an eye on your dog remotely or to review their goings on during the day. Not only that, it can also be used as evidence if you (god forbid) got robbed. Yes, they are dog cameras!

What is a dog camera?

You may think that a dog camera is just a normal CCTV camera but with the word ‘dog’ attached. Well, technically you could get one of these but real dog cameras available in the UK can be interactive and are specifically designed for the use of keeping an eye on your dog. Generally a dog camera has a microphone (both ways), can dispense treats and some can have night vision for when you’re out during the night or they’re in a dark room. A common feature of canine specific cameras is an app for the owner to check in with their furry friends.

Do I need a dog camera?

The short answer is no, you don’t need a dog camera at all. A pooch monitor is merely a tool to make owners aware of how they’re dog is doing alone and to be able to interact with them if they have one that has that feature. An added bonus for a dog camera is it can also put your mind at rest about your home in general regardless of how you’re dog’s doing. All in all, a dog camera can be very handy for those who are in the middle of training their dog to be alone.

Features of dog video cameras

Not all hound video feeds are made equal, so these are features you may find in some pet monitoring systems:

  • Wifi capability
  • App monitoring
  • Treat dispensing
  • Two-way microphone
  • High definition video
  • Night vision
  • Memory card saving
  • Outdoor usage

Automatic Smart Pet Feeder Camera

The Automatic Smart Pet Feeder from VGSION is a whopper. With this you can feed you pet at any time and from anywhere or set a timer to do it. This is way more than just the camera hence the premium tag. With a 130 degree camera, dual audio channel and massive amounts of remote storage available this has everything you need to solve your smart pet camera needs. Does require mains power as many do but that’s not a surprise as all these features simply can’t be done on batteries, an added bonus is social media connection to share your moments – although god knows why you’d want to really. Night vision is not in this model which does let it down though.

Automatic Smart Pet Feeder
  • Be able to feed your pet from anywhere and at anytime; Remotely set times to feed your pet automatically or choose to do a manual feeding from your mobile device instantly. Supports both Apple and Android devices;
  • Connect with your pet while you are away with the supported dual-way audio chat/recording or with the included HD camera. Take photos and videos of them with just the touch of a button (Operational WIFI, 802.11 b / g / n and power adapter plugged in required). Link your social media accounts to the app to share your favorite moments;
  • Video storage: Supports automatic feeding video, pictures and videos can be stored in the phone or TF card, support up to 32G external TF card(Not included);

PETKIT MATE Pet Camera

This is a real smart choice for those who want a premium dog camera without the treat dispensing or feeder features and a camera that will fit in with existing house decor. This is a real flash piece of kit. What separates this from the competition is its ability to rotate so you can really see everything if its positioned well. The PETKIT camera also has dual way microphone so you can communicate with your buddy and have high quality HD video recording to keep an eye on them. As an added bonus it has day and night mode to keep you connected no matter the hour. Lacks external storage though.

Petcube

This fancy looking today is different as its got a laser which can distract and stimulate the pet, however for a dog I’m unsure how many would be able to play with the laser without destroying everything. As you can see it’s also a good looking device which won’t be an eyesore and you won’t feel the need to put it away when not in use. Other than that, it has a HD camera with a 3x zoom, 138 degree viewport and two way audio for communication. This could be a hit or a miss with your pet if you’re willing to stump up the cash for it.

Clever Dog Smart Camera

The clever dog smart camera is an excellent entry level dog monitoring camera that has many of the ideal features listed here. It’s not the best looking thing on the internet and you may want to hide it when not in use but for what you need it to do it is great. The picture is clear and you can connect via Android or iOs app. The drawbacks? the movement sensor will drive you crazy as it can pick up on changes in light and you may want to turn that feature off.

Maudpower Dog Monitor Security Webcam

The Maudpower Dog monitor security webcam is actually designed for babies but can be repurposed for your dog. It has the very standard of features as a web cam and pretty much no features specifically for your dog. As an entry level camera though that is to be expected. Highlight is the ease of installation even for ‘olds’ as the Amazon description will tell you and the high definition camera and two way microphone. It is quite a subtle webcam as well which means it won’t disrupt your home decor.

  • 【DATA ENCRYPTION for SECURITY】: Supports up to 128GB secure digital memory card for recording and playback.

Weesee WiFi Mini IP CCTV Camera

Again, the Weesee Wifi CCTV camera is not a built-for-purpose dog camera as is more likely when you are looking at entry level stuff. Has no dog specific features but what it does have is a crisp feed and an incredibly low price! Adjust the angle however you want and with a 360 view you can see everything, along as it’s positioned right which may mean some unwanted DIY is needed.

  • This product is HD Wireless Wifi VR IP Camera with 360° full view and 3 megapixel, makes new vision and more wide world. It has the function of electronic PTZ, allows you to adjust the monitoring pictures freely and choose the angle you want through the phone APP. Suitable for office, home, factory and some other places.
  • 360 degree 1.19mm lens panoramic IP camera would make wider surveillance without blind spots.
  • Standing full HD 1536 * 1536 high display resolution, electronic zoom function makes the details clear.

IP Camera

Well, first of all you’ll notice the camera is shaped like a dog which is a bit of a novelty for the owner as the dog won’t care. Second, is that the IP Camera has premium level features at entry level price (it’s usually on offer). Full HD viewing for a crisp and clean pi, wide angle camera so you can se the whole picture as well as motion detection which makes it double up as a security camera and SD card video storage make this a very good choice if you’re on a budget but want something more than “just” a camera. Doesn’t have dog specific features though unless you count the fact it looks like a dog. Partial night vision lets it down a bit slightly.
