Are Pet Cameras Worth It For Labrador Owners?
Now that you know about the best cameras for your Labrador, you may wonder if these pet cameras are even worth it. The most frequent answer provided on our Facebook Labrador Retriever page is yes, they are worth it.
One of the biggest reasons lab owners have pet cameras is to keep tabs on their beloved fur babies.They work great during the day when you are at work, or when you go on vacation as well.
Aiko Kadota Sine said that having one of these cameras makes her feel safe as her husband travels quite a bit.
Tiffany Lynne McCall says that she never realized how handy the cameras would be.
If your Labrador has separation issues or anxiety, these cameras are quite helpful in soothing a pet that is in distress. With ones that offer 2 way talk, you will find that your voice can calm down the dog. Just hearing a familiar voice is sometimes all it takes.
Cindy Palladini McFarland says they bought a camera just to watch and talk to their boy when they are not home. Once he hears their voice, he begins to calm down.
If you will need a pet sitter, these cameras come in rather handy. Even if you trust the person pet sitting for you, it is still nice to be able to see your pets to assure you they are being well taken care of. One of our Facebook users said that even though they feel bad saying it, they know the family member that stays with their dog does not like canines very well.
Cindy Noone Klehr said that they also had a very bad experience with a pet sitter so they decided a pet camera was the way to go.
Some pet cameras have treat dispensers on them so your pooch can have a treat or two while you are not home. Shannon Ripple says her Furbo does this and she likes it. Pet treat dispensers come in handy when a pup is anxious, pacing, barking, or licking. Tossing a treat or two will easily distract them.
Other pet owners said that cameras with built-in toys, such as a laser pointer is a great idea for pets that become bored easily, plus it is a great way to interact with your puppy throughout the day. (Note that I don’t recommend laser pointers for dogs).
There are also pet cameras that come with a tele-vet feature that will help you determine if your precious fur ball needs to see a vet in person. The app will allow you to chat with a licensed vet where you can show them the footage to help them determine if you need to take your pet in. In many cases, cameras that have this feature will have a subscription service to go with it.
Many of our pet owners in our Labrador Facebook group have determined that a pet camera is needed when you have a Labrador or other pet. With various cameras from different brands, they come with different features, subscriptions, prices, and specs. There is one out there that is perfect for you and your lab.
