Many people have very busy jobs that take them to various meetings at different locations throughout the day, then attend an informal dinner, plus a few drinks afterward. The problem is, the entire time they’re having a good time, their faithful best friend, their dog or cat, is at home waiting by the door. It can be hard to do your job and still be positive in your outlook if you keep thinking about your pet, so entrepreneurs have invented clever ways to stay in touch using modern technology. One of those is Barkbox (is Barkbox worth it) and the other is Petcube, which you can read about here.
Pet parenting is one of those things that can tend to overwhelm us, especially when we’ve just started out with a young puppy or kitten. They are so adorable, and they love us at least as well as anyone else in our lives. During If you keep your vet on speed dial, you just might be an overprotective pet parent.
A great invention called the Petcube can help alleviate some of the anxiety you experience as you eat dinner with your friends after work, since you’ll be able to chat with your cat or dog via your SmartPhone while viewing them on the Petcube built-in camera.
It’s a good way to keep your connection to your pet active throughout the day, anytime you’re on a break or between meetings you can just dial up your pet and have a quick conversation. You’ll be able to see your pet while you’re talking, which is the most comforting part.
One of the great things about your Petcube setup is that if you have any problems whatsoever, they have excellent customer service available. This is evidenced on many of the customer reviews that are available online, where customers have had problems, the Petcube staff is right there and quickly.
During our review of the Petcube pet monitor, the setup involved registering our camera and downloading the Petcube application to our phone, the application is available on Google Play or Apple App store, for free. Once you’ve done that, you simply must plug in your Cube and wait for it to scan for signals, about 30 seconds, then login to your Petcube account.
Once you’re in your account, just head for ‘home’ by clicking the logo in the upper left corner and you’ll be taken to the menu where you can ‘Connect to Petcube Camera’. After you follow several onscreen steps, your camera’s LED light will change from red to white and you should be connected and ready to chat. Of course, you should try the connection out several times while you’re still at home to make sure everything is working before you head to work.
In reading the online reviews it’s pointed out that for best results you should remember to leave a light on in the room where the Petcube is located in order for the camera to perform at its peak. You can use an automatically operated light that only comes on at dusk in order to save on energy.
One of the best and most innovative features of the Petcube is its laser pointer which is especially handy if you have cats. You can sit at your desk and have hours of fun letting your cat chase the pointer around the room while your office co-workers look over your shoulder. Luckily the camera provided comes with a wide-angle lens that is able to see a lot of the room in order to make playing with the laser easier.
In reading the online pet toy reviews it appears that many people are especially pleased with the sleek aluminum case which is about 4 inches square and looks good sitting about anywhere in the home.
The other cool feature is that you can put your account on public share, then complete strangers can entertain themselves and your pet while you’re busy doing other things. This is like having a free babysitter ready and able nearly all hours of the day.
If you’re in need of seeing, chatting and playing with your pet several times a day while you’re away, there is nothing more fun that a Petcube. Your pet will love it, but it will also relieve some of the anxiety you and your pet share while you are separated each day.
Pets, and in particular dogs, are my life. When I wake up, I can't wait to see my beautiful dog Leila, and when I go to bed I am cuddling with my cat Sheila. (Yes, I am not very original when it comes to names).
