The First Treat-Tossing Dog Camera, Furbo, Launches to Let Parents and Pups Stay Together Anywhere

Tomofun, the company dedicated to bringing joy and innovation to pet lovers around the world, is excited to announce the pre-sale launch of its first product, Furbo – the world’s first treat-tossing dog camera. Designed to help dog parents care for their pups in real time all the time, Furbo is the first dog camera to include a treat-tossing feature, which allows pups and parents to play from anywhere – relieving parents’ concerns about their dogs being home alone.

“As a dog parent, the hardest part of my day used to be the moment I would leave for work and hear my dog crying. Other solutions allowed me to watch what he was doing remotely, but didn’t allow me to truly interact with him or to help keep him occupied during the day when he was lonely,” said Furbo Co-founder Maggie Cheung. “We created Furbo out of our personal need as dog parents, and we can’t wait to give other dog moms and dads the same ability to stay close with their furry loved ones from anywhere.”

Furbo is the first dog camera designed with an interactive treat popping system, to allow parents and pups to play from anywhere. Parents can simply take their dog's favorite rounded treats, drop them into the top, and watch as their pup chases the treat through the air.

"Pet technology is an emerging industry, and we’re proud to be introducing a new kind of product that not only is the first of its kind, but truly changes the way we interact with our pets when we’re away from them. We’re very excited to get this product into the hands and paws of our users, and are well-positioned at the forefront of this growing industry" said Victor Chang, CEO of Tomofun.

Designed with the input from over 5,000 dog parents, vets, and dog trainers, Furbo is made specifically to suit the needs of dogs, and includes barking alerts so parents can know when their pup is in distress, a clicking sound proven to create positive associations for training and a blue and yellow light scheme - tailored to a dog’s visual capabilities.

Furbo is available for presale now on Indiegogo with a goal of $50,000. The device is available for pre-order for $99.  For more information, please visit: https://igg.me/at/furbo-smart-pet-camera.
