Feel bad about leaving your pet at home when you have to go out? Or are you curious about what they get up to behind closed doors?! The best pet cameras help you to keep an eye on your animals every hour of the day. They can help alleviate loneliness for both parties, allowing you to talk to your pets and see what they're doing even when you can't be with them.⠀ ⠀ That's not the only thing pet cameras can do. Some enable you to dispense treats for your pets, giving them much-needed stimulation in the times when you're not around. Some pet cameras literally let you play with your pets, shining an eye-safe laser for them to chase, or even in the case of the Skymee Owl, literally rolling themselves around your home, dropping treats as they go. To find out more about pet cameras, and to read about our pick of the best, head to our new website now to read Best pet camera 2020: six options to keep an eye on your pets.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Pic credit @petcube.⠀ ⠀ #petcamera #petsradar #buyingguide #wearepetsradar #newwebsite #petswebsite #Petcube #animallover #pets⠀ PetsRadar (opens in new tab)

The launch of PetsRadar.com coincides with a rise in pet ownership driven by the spread of Covid-19, with many turning to animals for comfort and companionship during these testing times. Indeed, UK charity Dogs Trust reported a 25% increase in adoptions at the start of the pandemic. PetsRadar is on hand to ensure all new pet owners have everything the need to build long-lasting relationships with the latest additions to their family.
Paul Newman, the site's Managing Director, said of the launch: “We live in extraordinary times and the companionship and comfort our animal friends provide has never been more important.
"PetsRadar.com is about equipping owners with the information they need to ensure their cat, dog, rabbit or reptile lives the best life they possibly can. Our in-depth advice and buying guides will help to connect our commercial partners with high-spending consumers who care deeply about their pets and the products they buy for them.”
PetsRadar's Editor-in-Chief, Dave Harfield, added: “As the proud pet-parent of a beautiful German Shepherd Dog named Vinnie, I know first-hand just how much of a huge place pets take in the hearts of their owners and families.
"The love and dedication that owners and pets share for each other will be at the core of what we do at PetsRadar.com, inspiring us to provide a reliable and compassionate voice that’s dedicated to improving the lives of pets and their people alike.”
So head on over to PetsRadar.com now and discover everything you need to give your pet the happy, healthy life it deserves.
