How to make sure your dog is fine when alone


Leaving your dog at home alone can be concerning, regardless of its age. Whether it's a young pup or an older dog, each has its unique behaviors and potential issues. Every dog owner knows the feeling. You're at work, or out running errands, and you find yourself wondering: "How's my dog doing right now?" Our dogs are more than just pets; they're family. We cherish their joy, laugh at their antics, and worry about their well-being. For many dog owners, the key question remains: How can I make sure my dog is doing fine alone at home? The answer is Barkio.

Keeping an eye (and ear) on your best friend with Barkio

Imagine being able to tune into your home, regardless of where you are, and check in on your dog. With Barkio, not only can you hear if your dog is barking, whining, or showing signs of distress, but you can also interact with them. The two-way communication feature ensures that even if you're miles away, your voice can still comfort and soothe your pet. For those moments when you notice your dog seems restless or anxious, being able to call out and reassure them can make a world of difference.

With a range of features tailored to suit the needs of all dogs, Barkio dog monitor becomes an indispensable tool for any dog owner seeking peace of mind and a deeper connection with their furry friend.

1. Install Barkio app on your phone/laptop and follow the instructions


2. Try all amazing features tailored for pet owners

  • Real-time audio monitoring: Stay connected by listening in real-time. This feature allows you to determine if your dog is barking, whining, or simply relishing a quiet moment. Such auditory insights can be valuable in understanding their emotional state when alone.

  • Live video feed: A visual connection ensures you know exactly what's happening at home. This visual aid ensures you have a full picture of your pet's activities, whether they are peacefully napping, engaged in play, or simply wandering around your home.

  • Activity alerts: If your dog suddenly becomes active, maybe chasing a ball or perhaps trying to access a restricted area, Barkio will notify you instantly. This means if your Lab starts sprinting around in a 'zoomie' frenzy, knocking things over, you'll be alerted and can check in to ensure everything's alright. BackgroundMonitoring.jpg

  • Two-way communication: Offer words of comfort, call them over to the camera, or simply let them hear your voice. This isn't just about monitoring; it's about connection. If your dog starts showing signs of anxiety, you can calm them with your voice. Or maybe you just want to call them over for a virtual petting session. It can be especially heartwarming to watch your dog's tail wag as they recognize your voice. For instance, if your dog starts whining by the door, a simple "It's okay, buddy" from you can offer immediate solace.

  • Activity log: Track your dog's patterns throughout the day. This can be crucial for older dogs to monitor any changes in behavior or activity levels. If you want to know when your dog is most active or if they're getting enough rest, the log will provide insights. Over a week, you might notice that your elderly dog takes longer afternoon naps or is particularly restless in the early evening. Such patterns can help inform decisions about walk timings, feeding, or play schedules.

  • Commands: Barkio lets you prerecord commands that your dog recognizes, ensuring they listen even when you're not there in person. Maybe you've trained your Spaniel not to jump on the couch. If you see them about to leap via the video feed, playing the prerecorded "Off!" command can reinforce good behavior even in your absence.
