There is a company that makes an action camera that is called a GoPro mini cam.  The idea is fairly simple.  It a small, virtually indestructible camera that comes with tons of different mounts.  You could mount it to a mountain bike for trail riding, or use the helmet mount for when you feel the urge to throw yourself from a plane, and parachute down, and they even make a harness for your dog now too.

The Fetch, as it’s called allows you to attach a harness to your dog, and even choose the point of view.  It can mount the camera to the dog’s back, or a front view as it can be chest mounted too.

So now, you can get a real dog’s eye view of the world your pooch sees when they go trail walking, or digging at the beach.  It’s also very good for hunting dogs, to get a look of what the dog sees as it’s out there helping it’s human get some food.

The mount is 100% adjustable for dogs of all sizes.  So it can be adjusted for small dogs (around 15 pounds) all the way up to large breeds (up to 120 pounds).

“The adaptability and versatility of GoPro cameras make them the perfect device to document life from a dog’s point of view,” Paul Osborne, senior director for GoPro’s product management.  “We designed the Fetch to meet the unique needs and usage for pets and can’t wait to see the images and videos that owners will capture and share now that there’s a mount specifically for the dog.”

  1. Neat idea, for sure. But not much actual chase/fetch video in the promo. Maybe because when the dog runs there’s too much “bucking” to keep the camera upright? I’d need to see more videos before I was all in on this.

  2. Wouldn’t it be a little uncomfortable for the dog to carry it around, especially if he wants to run and play?
