Have you ever been baffled by how your pup got into the garage, or maybe that one special room you try to keep extra nice for company? It’s a real mystery - until you catch them on camera.
This Furbo user had a surprise when recording her pup Hannah (Instagram: @lifeofhhb):
“I work 12 hour shifts, and can’t check the Furbo while I’m at work, but my mother is able to ‘virtually dog sit’ from her home many states away thanks to Furbo! And also thanks to Furbo, I learned that my dog could open the closet door to get to the trashcan. As a result I installed a slide lock on that door, and now she can’t get in, even though it doesn’t stop her from trying…”
Most of us assume that unless they grow thumbs, dogs are stumped by doorknobs, but dogs actually study their owners and can learn a fair amount of their behaviors. This is especially true for large dogs, who can reach doorknobs with ease. So if you see your pup waiting by the door or pawing the door handle, chances are he’s on his way.
You’ll want to install a small lock, like the slide lock that stopped Hannah, or erect a baby gate in front of important doors. If you have a lever handle on your doors, you will especially want to secure those, as they’re easier to open than doors with round doorknobs.
And of course, our Furbo Dog Nanny service can alert you of dog movements when you can’t watch the feed live: https://shopus.furbo.com/products/furbo-dog-camera

Going on Vacation? Here are Some Tips for Leaving Your Dog for the First Time
You and your dog do everything together — from enjoying long walks on sunny days and playing in the park, to curling up together on the couch when the weather isn't so cooperative - you're two peas in a pod. You can't imagine life without the friendly panting, tail-wagging and begging of your best friend and baby, so it's hard to picture spending a vacation without him or her. Who will feed her? Will your caregiver give him enough cuddles? Is your dog better off at home, out in the backyard, boarded at a kennel or left with a friend or family member?
