Review: Lovoom Pet Camera

Need a way to keep your dog clean then please keep reading below as they have some great tips and tricks to keeping your dog clean and looking smart . 

Of course if you need a professional dog groomer in Sydney then you can reach out and contact us as well and we will put you in touch with a mobile dog wash or grooming service

I always feel a little twinge of guilt when I walk out of the house and leave my dogs behind. I used to spend my days wondering what they were up to all day and worrying that they were sitting around just waiting for me to come home. Thankfully, products like the Lovoom Pet Camera make it possible for me to check on my girls when I’m not at home.

Lovoom Pet CameraI’m grateful that I get to work from home, because I can be with my dogs most of the time. Unfortunately, that means I worry about them even more when I can’t be home with them. I’m always worried that they will get bored when I’m not there and get into something that they shouldn’t to entertain themselves.

Using a pet camera has helped give me peace of mind. I’ve tried many different models, and I was curious to see how the Lovoom Pet Camera measured up to other similar models.

You’ll have to keep reading or watch my video review above to get all the details, but I can tell you that this device makes it easy to check up on your pets when you’re not at home. It’s got some great features that may sway your decision on which pet camera is going to be best for you and your canine companion.

RANKINGS: The 8 Best Pet Cameras for Dogs

Lovoom Pet Camera Review

Lovoom Pet Camera ReviewThe Lovoom Pet Camera connects to iOS and Android devices with the help of the company’s free app. It sends a live stream, 720p HD video to your phone or tablet. This camera provides 90˚ angle views and has 4X zoom.

The one feature that the Lovoom Pet Camera offers that I’ve never seen on a similar product is it’s ability to rotate 180˚. As I demonstrate in my video review above, it is simple to move the camera back and forth with the arrows on the app screen.

I’ve never used a pet camera that allows you to get this type of view in your home. Most sit stationary, but the Lovoom Pet Camera can pan back and forth to give you a view of the entire room. It is even equipped with the ability to snap still photos, so you can share them on social media with your friends and family.

Lovoom Pet CameraIt is also equipped with a 2-way microphone that allows you to hear when your dog barks and gives you the ability to send voice messages to your pup!

Some pet cameras, like this one, feature a treat tossing device. I highly recommend getting a camera with a treat tosser, for two reasons. First, of course, it is a great way to get your dog’s attention. Also, it makes it really easy to train your dog to come over to the camera when it engages.

The treat dispenser on the Lovoom Pet Camera goes a step above other devices, as it allows you to adjust the distance the treat is thrown and the direction in which it is projected. The distance can be adjusted from 3-10 inches.

Lovoom Pet Camera ReviewIn my video review above I demonstrate how easy it is to fill the treat dispenser of this camera. The only thing that I don’t like is that the treats need to be VERY small. Training treats are very small kibble would work.

Speaking of training your dog to come over when the camera engages, Lovoom makes it simple. Along with the treat dispenser, there are 5 melodies to provide an audible cue to your pup when the camera initiates.

Another feature that pushes the Lovoom Pet Camera ahead of competitors is the included remote control. I don’t really find the remote control useful, because I only use the camera when I’m not at home. However, if you’d like to treat your pup when you are home you will surely find the remote helpful.

The camera is fairly small, measuring just 5.5″ x 5.7″ x 6.3″. You can purchase it on Amazon for $245 at the time of this review. This is comparative in price to other similar products, but it’s still very expensive. While I think the camera is a great product, I know pet owners on a budget will not be able to afford this device.

Dalmatian Puppy with Deadly Disease Purchased Online Gets a Second Chance with New Mom

Need a way to keep your dog clean then please keep reading below as they have some great tips and tricks to keeping your dog clean and looking smart . 

Of course if you need a professional dog groomer in Sydney then you can reach out and contact us as well and we will put you in touch with a mobile dog wash or grooming service

Beau the Dalmatian did not get to grow up the right way as a puppy because she was pretty much isolated for months due to parvovirus.

A family bought a Dalmatian puppy online with hardly any idea if the dog was ever vaccinated. They were assured but not shown any proof that she received the necessary shots and soon enough, Beau became very ill.

When the family could not afford to pay for her veterinary bills, they surrendered the dog, now at nine months old, to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) Millbrook Animal Center in the UK. Shelter workers suspected Beau had parvovirus, an infectious disease, which prompted Beau’s isolation from the other dogs.

Growing Up with Parvovirus

According to Joss Iveson of the RSPCA Millbrook, online purchases of puppies commonly happen but this has its disadvantages and risks. As in the case of Beau, dogs sold online can get very ill because they usually do not receive the right vaccinations.

So, for the next seven months, Beau did not have a normal puppy life while in isolation as she struggled with the deadly disease. The RSPCA had to raise funds for her treatment and fortunately, 72 kinds souls showed their support with the donations. The dog was able to fully recover and was soon ready to be taken in by a new family.

But since Beau did not get to experience growing up in a regular environment due to being sick, she soon showed behavioral problems. The Dalmatian would be afraid of the slightest noise, sights, and smells. She was terrified of entering doors and avoided going to the garden to play. She also did not know how to play gently.

For the second time, Beau had to be surrendered to the shelter because she wasn’t properly trained. It took six months for the Millbrook RSPCA to build Beau’s confidence and skills so that she becomes a fully housebroken dog.

Adopting a Dog with Serious Issues

Trudy Kemp heard of Beau from a local veterinarian and did not think twice about visiting her at the shelter. She’s a Dalmatian lover and works at the British Dalmatian Welfare in re-homing abandoned dogs.

The news of Beau came at the right time because Trudy had recently lost two of her Dalmatians. It was love at first sight for Trudy the moment she saw Beau.

Adopting a Dog with Serious Issues
RSPCA

It truly was the perfect fit since Trudy understood the dog’s history too well, according to SurreyLive. She knew that Beau did not get to experience becoming a normal puppy, hence she has nervous episodes.

From Beau to Bonnie

But Trudy is patient to teach the dog how to be calm, confident and behaved. She has renamed Beau as Bonnie and brings the dog to her work as a hairdresser every day so she would learn to socialize.

Trudy also has a retired greyhound named Penny that’s helping her teach Bonnie how to be a dog. She’s joyful about being able to give a dog a second chance now that Bonnie is happily adjusting to her new home with her mom and sister.

Dangers of Buying Pets Online

Iverson once again had to reiterate the various online puppy sale scams and the many dangers of buying pets on the Internet. Instead of buying dogs online, Iverson hopes that people would reconsider and instead look for their forever pet at shelters. This way, they can properly assess the dog’s health and situation, as well as get the right answers about the dog’s status from the shelter workers.

The Better Business Bureau also warns against buying puppies online as a number of people have been victimized by this scam. Always be wary of the practice, consult with experts and do your research beforehand. Ultimately, it’s best to adopt at the shelter.

10 Reasons Your Dog Barks

Need a way to keep your dog clean then please keep reading below as they have some great tips and tricks to keeping your dog clean and looking smart . 

Of course if you need a professional dog groomer in Sydney then you can reach out and contact us as well and we will put you in touch with a mobile dog wash or grooming service

A dog barking is just as natural as a child learning to talk and as with any form of communication, it crops up for a variety of reasons. Some situations, however, elicit such excessive barks from the dogs that it might be irritating and disruptive.

To solve our dogs’ excessive barking issue when it becomes a serious nuisance, we must first learn the triggers for said barking so that we can contain the dog and avoid complaints from the neighbors. Here are 10 reasons that can trigger your dog to bark:

1. We are responsible for the evolution of barking in dogs

Like any animal, dogs use their vocals to communicate. They bark when they want to interact with other dogs or with their humans. They bark even louder when they think that their message isn’t getting across. And this our – humans’ – fault.

Despite the popular opinion, studies show that dogs did not inherit barking from wolf ancestors. In wolfs, only young pups bark. After a series of studies from 2005 to 2010, researchers now propose that the reason modern dogs bark so much is because people’s domestication of dogs evolved this practice over thousands of years.

The direct or indirect human artificial selection process made the dog bark as we know.” – Csaba Molnar, ethologist at Hungary’s Eotvos Lorand University.

Today, barking is forever ingrained in modern dogs’ behavior. We cannot simply choose to take away the habit but we can do something about the excessive nuisance barking if we understand what the dog is “trying to say.”

2. The dog is excited you came home

The dog is excited you came homeSaid communication might be the primary reason dogs bark, but this practice is also for the dog to express emotional state. Does your dog elicit a high-pitched bark when you or a family member comes home? This is their way of showing excitement and glee, and sometimes their gesture may be accompanied by jumping, running or spinning.

Their excited barks can be quite hysterical that they may even harm themselves or break things they knock over because they are too excited. In fact, over-excitement in dogs who bark and especially wag their tail too much can result in Happy Tail Syndrome problem.

If your dog behaves in a way that seems like “too much,” don’t try to reprimand or punish your pet. Instead, ignore your pup completely to allow the dog to calm down and stop barking before you stoop to give him a hug or pat on the head to let them know you’re glad to be home and prefer a calm way of expression.

3. The dog is sending a warning

Dogs bark to warn you of something they sense around them. This is typically a short or single bark and you might observe the dog retreating from the scene. If the dog does not stop barking and keeps coming back or looking over, then that’s your cue to check what could be out there and why it’s bothering your pooch. The dog is barking to let you know about the threat so that you can deal with it too.

4. The dog is showing fear

Sometimes, dogs may bark due to fear. Barking is the least of your problems when it comes to fear aggression, however, since dogs can also growl and bite. When only barking out of fear, the sound is loud, penetrating and repetitive. It’s usually the sound that dog owners tend to punish especially if the pet parents do not understand the trigger. However, the punishment will only worsen the barking problem.

According to canine behavior expert Patricia McConnell PhD, it will help to calm the dog by stroking, petting or giving him treats when he is fearful. It won’t reinforce the barking if that’s your worry. Instead, it will teach the dog to associate the hugs, pats, and treats with something good, which might help lessen the nerves.

5. The dog is guarding what’s his

The dog is guarding what's hisDogs are territorial by nature. It’s part of their survival skills so they bark and show their teeth when they need to guard what they value, such as food, bed or toys. However, resource guarding may become a serious issues, thus a pet dog also needs to be taught tolerance skills so that he won’t feel the people around him as threats.

Guard barking may quickly become a dangerous problem if it’s not handled well. If this happens to your dog, remove him from the situation or take away what he values. Only give the item when he has learned to calm down and behave. In more serious cases, you may need to employ the help of a canine behaviorist, especially if you have kids around.

6. The dog is frustrated due to boredom

A lack of mental stimulation presents a variety of behavioral problems in dogs, and barking is just one of them. A frustrated bark is usually static, repetitive and might never seem to end. The dog may also howl and show behaviors like chewing, licking or digging. These are self-calming behaviors that the dog does when his energy is not dispensed. This means that the dog needs something to do since he’s bored.

To end frustration barking that’s due to boredom, you have to make sure that your dog gets enough exercise or play time. He also needs his mental stimulation, so a walk in the park would be very good for him as well as interactive dog toys that are specifically designed to stimulate the dog’s brain.

7. The dog wants your attention

Does your dog bark while looking at you when you’re having a snack or eating at the dining table? Does he bark to let you know that he wants to be outside? Dogs are attention seekers and will demand something from you first through pawing and physical contact, then silent whining and eventually through barking.

This is not an appropriate form of communication for the dog, so you have to teach your pup not to use barking to attract attention. One way to do this is to ignore the dog, and not respond to the dog’s demands or fall for their tricks and looks.

8. The dog is experiencing separation anxiety

The dog is experiencing separation anxietyDoes your dog yip and whine when he’s left alone downstairs or inside his crate? A dog may bark as a way to deal with separation anxiety. He whimpers to show his displeasure and this usually makes his owner come back to check on him. Doing so reinforces such behavior and teaches the dog that barking will get him out of the crate.

You can counter this behavior by helping the dog associate being alone with something good. If you need to leave the dog, give him a special toy or special food specifically for this purpose. This will keep him occupied for a few minutes so he won’t realize that you’re away. If you’re crate training a dog, you must do so gradually and methodically.

9. The dog is feeling sick or is injured

Dogs bark, whimper, growl or howl when they are not feeling well and in the absence of any visible injuries, it’s best to take the dog to the vet right away if whimpering or barking for no reason and won’t stop. Just be careful when you have to carry him since he might have tender physical injuries that could worsen with the slightest movement.

10. The dog is responding to the noise

You’ve seen dogs (and wolves) howl when prompted by other howling or even specific music. This practice is in their genes. But dogs also respond to many other sounds or noises around them which could be anything from a ring on the doorbell, the sound of the television or radio, a car driving by your house, or the sound of the ambulance sirens.

This is completely a natural behavior for canines and the bark is usually high-pitched. Sometimes, you just have to let the dog respond. If this happens too often, it’s time to employ behavioral training and reinforcement.

It’s important to watch out for other cues from your dog when he’s excessively barking. Observe your pet’s body language, his tail, his eyes, and ears so that you can properly understand what he’s trying to say with his barks.
