FaceTiming my puppy

I consulted with a trainer in regards to Sheldon whining (sometimes escalating to yelping) when I leave for work, with him in his ex-pen.

One suggestion she gave me was to FaceTime him. That is, I'd leave my iPad next to the ex-pen, plugged in, and monitor how long he yelps by FaceTiming him from my iPhone after I leave.

Intriguing idea - has anyone tried this? I don't know if there are any logistical issues to "calling myself" - if I have to have myself in Contacts set up in a particular way to do this.

Any ideas? I'll try to experiment tonight when I'm home from work.

Actually, my friend Mr. Google may have supplied the answer for me. I found this:

To facetime to an ipad, you need to create a contact on your iphone, and set it as "ipad". Add the email address associated to the itunes acct on the ipad, to the contact on your phone. Select the contact email address to facetime, and presto.

I have a video cam set up on my laptop that I can access through my iPhone. It is called Icam. If you have a laptop you could leave on the counter (it may work with the ipad too), you can then watch on your iphone without worrying about calling.

I use iCam too, or at least did, and it worked great. Not a big need for me to use it now but when I did it was great.

I went to read about iCam. Looks like I'd need to install it on my laptop, then could monitor it from my iPhone. Reviews are very good, though. Hmmm.....

Maybe I'll try FaceTime this evening, since I already have it. Although, as I understand it, charges could mount up on my iPhone if I use it a lot.

I don't use it much anymore either, no need to. But, it is great to have. I have a macbook pro and it was easy to set up on the computer and the iPhone.

Is there a charge for FaceTime? I thought it was free if you are on wireless internet on both sides.

Yes, you're right - if you are on wireless. Once I get to work, I can get on wireless. However, the time I'd most want to use it is probably driving to work where, as I understand it, charges may be incurred by using the cellular network to connect.

Ian Dunbar also sells a collar with an electronic bark counter that shows how often your dog is barking. I don't know whether it shows by time or not, because I didn't look into it very closely (this isn't, and never has been) a problem for us. But he was selling them at the workshop I attended, and I believe they were pretty cheap. (I seem to remember them being under $30, maybe under $20)

Did Ian talk to you guys about the robot type of gadget he's working on to calm dogs? I don't remember exactly what it was but I think it had audio capabilities and treat dispensing capabilities too. He was stressing the importance of "timing" when training and said that most people are off and not very effective. These gadgets seem to rule out the timing issues, but I think he expects people to use them when they aren't home. I have to look into a little further. I did not hear about the bark counting collar, that's pretty cool.

Yes, he did. They sound really cool, but I don't think they are on the market yet. He actually had the collars with him for sale. He came to u first, so maybe he was all sold out when he got down to you!
