The Internet-enabled iCPooch treat dispenser lets absentee pet owners alleviate their guilt and their pet’s separation anxiety by tossing them a treat from a distance. It installs wirelessly and can be accessed via smartphone, tablet, or computer. iCPooch also has an adjustable mounting bracket for owners who want to enable video chat by attaching a tablet or smartphone to it.

A 13 year-old, Brooke Martin from Spokane, Washington is the visionary who came up with the idea for the iCPooch treat dispenser. She thought it would be cool to be able to check on her dog Kayla while she was away from home. Angel investors were so impressed that they joined forces with the young inventor and her father to do the design engineering and software development, as well as hardware and packaging prototyping. In addition to the device itself, the iCPooch company will be producing iCPooch-ready treats.
