Petzi Treat Cam Hits the Sweet Spot for Animal Lovers


For some people their pets are just like members of the family with others going so far as to describe the relationship they have with their dog or cat as similar to that between a parent and a child.

With such a strong bond between animal and human, it only makes that an entire niche industry has grown up around accessories and gadgets to make the bond between animal and human that much closer.

The Petzi Treat Cam is a webcam with a pet treat dispenser built right into the device. You have probably seen pet webcams before, but the Petzi Treat Cam takes it up a notch by not only connecting you with fido at anytime during the day but also allowing you to give him a treat.

Not only that but the Petzi Treat Cam has a slew of other features that make it a must-have webcam for pet owners according to a critique from DPReview.

The Petzi Treat Cam offers a fixed-lens camera with focus abilities, live-streaming, the namesake treat dispenser, a speaker for interacting with your pets, a night mode with light, a smartphone app that allows you to remotely operate the device, and a social media network for pets.

In a bid to separate itself from other webcams for pets, Petzi’s social network and app syncing provides a seamless experience according to DPReview.

The social network functionality is much like any other with the requisite friend requests, follows, likes, and posting pictures on your pet’s behalf. Really, though, for animal lovers this social network feature is the hidden killer app within the whole Petzi Treat Cam scheme.

We think Petzi’s might know something about cats and the Internet and, while not for everyone, the camera might have stumbled upon a niche that it can grow into a full-fledged platform.
