Ever wonder what your dog or cat is up to while you’re away? A new start-up company is coming out with a product that will allow you to do just that!

The technology, named PetChatz, will work like a video phone which can be set up in your home. Pet owners can access PetChatz any time via their computer or mobile device to connect with their pet.

PetChatz will come equipped with a video screen, webcam, microphone, speakers, and even scent and treat dispensers! This will allow pet owners to toggle between spying on their pet or turning on video mode and actually communicating and giving treats to their pet.

While the product has yet to hit the market, the estimated cost is about $200-$300 and it is planned to launch this fall. Would you buy PetChatz?
