We consider the Furbo 360° Dog Camera the champion of all pet cameras. It goes above and beyond a basic indoor surveillance camera with some excellent dog-specific features, including treat tossing and bark alerts (our test dogs gave lots of wags for the treat feature!). 

Plus, we love that the Furbo 360° is good enough to be an indoor security camera in its own right. It’s worth the money and makes a great gift for pet parents.
