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.

Stay notified in every situation
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.

Power-saving background mode
When using Barkio in the background, the pet monitor will inform you about your dog through notifications. This mode helps to save a lot of battery on your device when monitoring.

Interact with your dog
With Barkio pet camera, you can communicate with your puppy remotely, calm it down, or stop your dog from disobeying. Whenever you can't talk to your pet live, you can prerecord your custom voice messages (commands) and use them to ease your dog's anxiety.

Communicate with two-way video
With our dog surveillance app, you will see your pet, and your dog or puppy will be able to see you as well.

Activity log
Barkio creates time stamps and records noises from each monitoring. These activity logs help you to understand your dog's behavior, and show any signs of separation anxiety, such as excessive barking, howling, or whining.

No cameras or collars needed
All you need to monitor your pet are two phones, tablets, or laptops in any combination. Barkio is perfect if you have an older device lying around at your home. There's no need to buy overpriced monitoring cameras, treats dispensers, or collars.

Deal with separation anxiety in dogs
Dog surveillance proves to be a helpful way to discover signs of separation anxiety in dogs. Barkio provides you with an overview of the pet's behavior to get a proper diagnosis by the vet and helps with solitude training.

Monitor across all platforms
Enjoy Barkio across all platforms with an easy setup and no extra cost. You'll be able to check on your dog from any device and connect to your pet cam at home.

Invite family members to join
All family members can join Barkio and monitor the dog together. You'll also have access to logs from past monitorings on all your devices, to see how your pet's behavior improves in time.

Suitable for other pets
Although Barkio was designed for monitoring dogs and puppies, it turned out to be a useful monitoring cam for cats, birds, and other pets as well.

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.

Works perfectly

I can’t believe the amazing camera quality even on non Apple phones. This app impressed me nonetheless. Compared to other apps this works the best for me and my dog. I have to thank you so much.

Great when it actually works

On the good days that this app works, it’s exactly what I need it to be. Arbitrarily decides when it can and can’t load the video even though both devices are connected to WiFi and should have no connection issues. Makes it hard to stop your dog from getting into something when you can’t see them.

Developer Response ,

Hi, we're so sorry that you experience this issue with our app. Could you contact us at, and tell us what two devices exactly do you use, which one as the Dog Station and Person Station? Does this issue happen when the app has been running in the background for some time or does this happen randomly? We would like to test this issue and find out what could be causing it.
