Check on your dog while you’re at work - know when it’s barking, talk to your dog remotely and see live video.
This is the first dog monitor app in the App Store with unlimited reach. It is a must-have for any dog owner.

With the Dog Monitor app, you can easily turn any two iOS devices into a full-featured dog monitor in a matter of seconds. No registration or connection adjustments required.

Now you can immediately find out when your dog barks. Wide sensitivity settings assure that you won’t miss any noise.

"Sit", "Stay", "Lay down" record commands in your own voice and keep your dog entertained and well behaved remotely.

Ever wondered what your dog does when you’re away? Watch video of your pet and see what they are up to. Thanks to our adjustable light feature, you can check-in on your dog even when it is dark. Video stream requires iOS 6 or greater.

Thank you! Thank you!!!

This is an update: This app eventually helped me better get along with my neighbors!!! My dog used to “cry” when I was away and my neighbor kinda complained. I bought this app to use for both my iPhone and my mac (priced separately), I literally corrected my dog’s “problem” by talking to him whenever I heard him “crying”. Took me some effort but eventually he stopped crying and I was so thankful that this was even possible! I definitely recommend every dog owner to have some kind of monitors like this app so you can help change your dog’s behaviors when he/she is home alone. That way your dog will become more likable and welcome not only to your neighbors but also to you and your family.

Original 1 star review (YEARS AGO while the app was pretty new):

I like this app, great concept and I purchased it for both my iPhone and my mac, I'm giving it 1 star for 2reasons: 1) because it keeps showing a message / envelope icon with a number badge on it on the app's initial screen and doesn't let user dismiss or let it go away! You don't force users to read what you want us to read, that's annoying! 2) no matter how hard I try, I can't video stream on my LTE network. Video only works on Wifi, despite I've already enabled it in settings.

Would give 5 stars if...

This app is absolutely incredible for the price! If you already have a second device, like an iPad that stays at home during the day, then this is way better than buying those other expensive products! I can see my dog all day, and even talk to him to tell him to stop chewing his bed if I need to! It also alerts me if he is being noisy (can be turned off). I only have one issue with this app...if you want to keep the camera running and monitor your dog all day it lowers the sound on all your other apps drastically. The only way to raise the volume is to stop monitoring your dog. So unfortunately I have to start and stop the monitor all day while I am using my phone and hopefully remember to put it on again when I’m done. That being said for $5 this is a great way to check on your pets throughout the day! It would be perfect if it did not effect the volume of all other apps while running.

Hi, thank you for your feedback! We're happy to hear that our app can help. :) Unfortunately, lowering the volume of other apps using sound (such as phone calls, music, and video players) while using our app is an iOS feature. It is not possible to use two apps that would be using the sound at the same time and it affects all apps, not just our apps. When using another app using sound together with Dog Monitor, iOS would either lower the volume of the app to very low or terminate the app altogether. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Only smart person here ,

Great concept but needs a lot of work

I get the purpose and I understand why a lot of people like this app. Don’t get me wrong, I like the app and its intent. However, my biggest gripe is it’s notification feature. As mentioned by others, it’s really annoying to have actual noise coming from the Dog Station go through your phone. I get that there is a solution for that by muting it in the settings and still get normal device notification sounds. But here’s the thing, that is not the reason why I’m not giving this 5 stars. This app is required to be running in the background in order to get notifications. For most, our batteries can’t afford to have apps like this running all day. I want to love this app and continue to use it. But until you guys figure out a way to still get notifications without the app running in the background, I’ll have to stick with Alfred. Maybe you guys should ask them how they figured it out.

Hi, thank you for your review and for your suggestions. The sounds from the Dog Station can be muted on the Person Station's Settings. We always try to adjust the app to make it use as little battery energy as possible. We send notifications when the app is running in the background and not when the app is turned off completely because of the reliability as it runs through our serves and you will receive every single notification. When sending notifications with the app being turned off completely, as you suggest, there would be a higher risk of not receiving some of the notifications on your Person Station or they could arrive later as they wouldn't run through our servers and you wouldn't be notified about your dog on time. It is an option, however, the reliability of the app is our priority.
