Barkio, a new app for mobile and desktop, aims to help dog owners to stay in touch with their dogs, and monitor them remotely wherever they are and whenever they need. Download Barkio and try it for free on iOS, Android, and desktop.

Why we created Barkio?

Following the success of our Dog Monitor app, Barkio is a new generation of monitoring apps for pet owners. Dog Monitor launched back in 2013 and was one of the first apps designed for monitoring pets left at home alone. The more popular the app became, the more feedback and feature requests from pet owners we've received. To be able to grow the app accordingly, we've decided that after six years, it's time to create a new, better app with more options on how to stay in touch with your dog. If you'd like to learn more about how are Dog Monitor and Barkio different, feel free to check our post.

What is Barkio?

Barkio is a smart app that turns any two phones, tablets, or laptops into a single dog monitoring app, helps you to stay in touch with your dogs and interact with them remotely. Try Barkio for free. Get now on iOS and Android.

All you need are two devices (phones, tablets, or laptops) — one for monitoring the dog at home, and the second one for you to check on your dog.

With Barkio, you’re just one tap away from your dog. Get it now on App Store and Google Play.

Is Barkio for me?

Whether you have just got a new puppy, fostered a dog from a pet shelter, or you’d simply like to know what your dog is up to when it’s home alone, Barkio can help. The app comes in handy under any circumstances — when you’re at work, running errands or just enjoying a night out.

Most of us have to leave our beloved pooches at home alone at some point in the day. Barkio provides you with an option to know how your dog is doing when it's home alone, and talk to it remotely to calm it down when needed.

Hear and watch live video of your dog

Barkio continuously monitors your dog, so you’re able to hear and see your dog in real-time. When the dog is noisy, the app alerts you immediately. You can remotely switch between the front-facing and back-facing camera or even activate a Night Light for better visibility.

Interact with your dog remotely

When your dog seems to be restless, anxious or it’s having too much fun chewing on your new shoes, you can talk to it and calm it down remotely with just one tap of a button. You can also prerecord your custom voice messages and send them to the dog in any situation. If your dog reacts better to visuals, you can stream a video of yourself to the Dog Station so your dog can see you as well.

With Barkio, you’re able to talk to your dog in real-time, send it prerecorded voice messages, and even stream it a video of yourself.

Monitor from multiple devices

Barkio is a multi-platform app available on iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, and Linux that lets you monitor your dog from multiple devices at the same time. This way, all your family members can join the monitoring and check on your dog.

Monitor your dog with Barkio for free. Download it now on the App Store and Google Play.

Get an overview of all activities

In the Activity log, you’ll see an overview of all monitorings with timestamps indicating when the dog was resting and when it was noisy. You can also replay the recorded noises. The activity log helps you to check everything that’s been going on and understand the patterns in your dog’s behavior.


Activity log gives you a summary of all events when your dog was resting and when it was noisy.

You can easily switch to background mode and be informed about your dog through notifications. You’ll learn when your dog is resting and noisy, and you’ll also be able to replay the detected noise.

Detect and deal with separation anxiety

Barkio helps with detecting separation anxiety in dogs. Separation anxiety is a serious health issue that affects dogs of any age and breed. As it manifests when the dog is left alone, pet owners often have no clue their dog is suffering from this health issue. Barkio helps with detecting the signs of separation anxiety, and with its subsequent treatment.

Where to get Barkio?

You can download Barkio for free on the App Store, Google Play and on desktop. All you need to use the app are two devices — phones or tablets, and the internet connection (WiFi or cellular data). No need to purchase overpriced hardware cameras.
