What is iCPooch?
iCPooch is a pet treat dispenser and computer all in one! iCPooch is a revolutionary new way to keep in touch with your pet while away from home, allowing you to video1 chat and deliver a them a treat over the internet. Seamlessly conduct a 2-way video1 chat with your favorite furry friend and deliver a treat with the press of a button from anywhere in the world. Check on your pet while at work or on vacation to ease your pet’s anxiety (or yours). iCPooch is the perfect solution for checking in on your pet while you are at work, at the game, deployed military, college bound students who will miss their furry friend, or just the busy pet owner. You can also bring iCPooch to your petsitter and connect it to their wifi!
Now with the handy plastic dishes that come with iCPooch you can even use our device to connect to your cat to deliver them.
Brooke Martin iCPooch Inventor/Founder When I was 12 years old I had an idea for a device that would allow dog owners to video1 chat with their furry friends via their mobile device. My golden retriever Kayla, like many dogs worldwide, suffered from separation anxiety. I saw this as a fantastic opportunity to combine my entrepreneurism with my love of dogs to help make the world a better place – one canine-loving family at a time. At the Fall 2012 Startup Weekend Spokane, Washington, 39 adults and me -- a 12-year-old girl -- assembled to pitch their ideas. iCPooch ended up getting the most number of votes, and I was afforded the incredible opportunity to work with an amazing team of professionals to kick-start the formation of my company. After Startup Weekend, my dad and I built prototypes in our garage. We then brought on a CEO and Board of Directors, worked with software developers, refined product design and packaging, participated in filing for a utility patent, and overcame manufacturing hurdles – all while continuously seeking funding from a variety of investors. Because iCPooch was a new concept in the pet products marketplace, we have focused our efforts on educating others about the benefits of using technology to interact with our pets. Today, We're proud to be working with world class manufacturers and partners and to have iCPooch available for purchase through a number of retailers on three continents, and our distribution continues to expand.
