Watch video of your dog
See what your pup is doing in a live HD video feed. Is your dog barking, howling, playing, or destroying your new pair of shoes? When the visibility is bad, Night Light can help with brightening up the room and catch the attention of your pet.

Hear every bark
Barkio transmits the sound, so you'll know if your dog is barking, howling, or whining, and you'll be able to calm your pet down remotely.

Distance is no longer a limit
Barkio works on WiFi and cellular data so you can monitor your pet from anywhere - from work, when running errands or when enjoying a night out.

When noise is registered, Barkio will send you a notification with an audio snippet. You'll be able to tell if your dog is noisy and needs your attention.

Love this!!

Downloaded this app for our 3 month old puppy who has to stay crated every other week. It’s really helped my peace of mind knowing he is ok when I’m not there. Turns out, my imagination was way worse than reality :) Today it saved the day! I got multiple notifications that puppy was noisy so I pulled up the app just to find an empty crate with the door wide open! he had opened his crate door and was loose in the house!! Thankfully our neighbors have a key and work from home and went and rescued my house from my puppy! Without the app I would not have known until I went home for lunch! So this was well worth the money! The only odd thing which isn’t really a big deal is it won’t update the latest update. It prompts me in the app but when I go to the App Store it just says “open” won’t update. But the app works like it’s supposed to and for that I’m thankful.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, we really appreciate it! ❤️ We're glad that Barkio helps you and your puppy. 🐶 We sincerely apologize for the issue with the update prompt, this was an issue on our part and with the next update this issue will be solved.

So far so good

I recently got a puppy and while we’re at work and school, gotta leave puppy in the back yard. In order to keep me “focused” a work, I had to monitor her actions somehow…right? So my friend recommended me Barkio and I’ve been just “keeping an eye” on her while she’s free roaming in the yard and I’m at work. Clear images and good sound quality.

Good for the most part

Works pretty good. But you have to reconnect when you move to another app. The muting resets back to off when you do. I was using it during a meeting, on my iPad, and switching between different apps, and I had to keep turning the mute back on after reconnecting. However, the good thing is, I never stopped getting the notifications, which were silenced because my iPad was on mute. So it worked for what I needed. Maybe the mute feature going back to default every time you reconnect will get fixed in a future update.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thank you very much for your feedback. :) When you switch to background monitoring, you are still being informed about the dog, so you are still monitoring, but the video and audio are not being transmitted on your device. The mute feature should remain enabled, could you please reach out to our support team at, and let us know what two devices have you use when this issue appeared? What version of the operating systems they have? We will do our best to help.
