Download the Free Petzi app to your smartphone or tablet, and set-up your new Petzi account.
Set-up your Petzi Treat Cam: Plug one end of the power cord into the back of the Petzi Treat Cam. Plug the other end into a power outlet. Watch for a slow, pulsing red light on the camera. Start the Petzi App on your smart device. From the menu, select Petzi Treat Cam. Click New (upper right) to add your Petzi Treat Cam. Follow the steps on your smart device.
Load your pet’s favorite treats into the Petzi Treat Cam: Gently remove the white plastic cover from the Petzi Treat Cam by pressing the ridged buttons on either side. Load crunchy treats less than 1” in size into the top fill hole. Replace the white plastic cover by pressing it to the front of the Petzi Treat Cam until you hear a click.
Introducing your Dog to Petzi Wi-Fi Camera & Treat Dispenser
Once set up is complete, with your pet nearby open the Petzi app on your smart device, go to the main menu (upper left), click on your Petzi Treat Cam, and you and your pet will hear a cute little chime which your pet will soon associate with pure joy!
Now, press the push to talk button on the app (lower right) and speak to your pet. It’s like using a walkie-talkie so your pet will not hear your voice until after you release the push to talk button.
At any time you can dispense a treat by pushing the treat button (right center) and your pets favorite treats will launch out in a playful and rewarding way. Talk with your pet using the treat cam and use the chime button (lower left), then the treat button a few times while you are both in the same room to familiarize your pet.
You are now ready to treat from afar and enjoy your pets with friends and family while your pet gets that mutually rewarding experience of hearing your voice and getting a treat. As a note, you can turn the chime off via the app (left middle) if you just want to check in without alerting your pet or feeling as if you need to treat.
