Interactive Pet Interfaces

PetChatz Keeps an Eye On Your Canine While You’re Out of the Hous

— January 29, 2014 — Lifestyle
If you find yourself missing your dog throughout the day, you should set up some time for contact using PetChatz interface, which is a face to dog communication device that recently launched onto the market.

For long days at the office, the PetChatz allows you to FaceTime your dog. The device is mounted on the wall and features a two-way video system with a special built-in treat dispenser. The system is operated through any desktop computer or smartphone that has the PetChatz app. For a more personal experience, the system also has one-touch scent dispenser. Your dog will be able to hear and smell you through the interface, and if he doesn't actually bark back to communicate with you, at least you can see that he's safe and sound at home.

The PetChatz gives you piece of mind and lets your pooch know you’re never too far away.
