    This is really awesome. Thank you for sharing! There are 2 nurses in my family that are now working even longer hours, 1 in the ER. Both have sweet fur babies. They will love this! Hopefully they can get a minute to check the camera during their shifts!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re SO welcome, Suzanne! 💖💖 Glad you can pass this along to them. BIG thanks for the work they do.

    How nice!!

  3. sue

    Now I can watch my dog pee on the carpet in real time!!!!!!!!!

    • Amanda

      LOL!! Thank You so much for the laugh 🙂

    • Gina

      OMG too funny. My dog aged 1000 years in December as well as went blind so I can totally relate…

  4. tracy

    This is so nice! I just applied. I work 12 hour shifts, hopefully I get one, fingers crossed 😊

    • Marcie Faulkner

      I miss my baby!

    • Claire

      Where did you apply?

    • Claire

      Where did you apply?

  5. AliciaE777

    This is very generous! I do wish it was available for everyone on the front line that still have to work.

    • Amber

      I agree! Police, fire and EMS folks are in the same boat now and always!


      100 percent agree, people don’t know how much they do.

    • RJohnson

      I agree. I work in law enforcement and we are working longer hours and discussing locking down at work and not even getting to go home at all. I do appreciate the medical personnel though, so I’m glad for them.

      • Ana

        Bless you😊

  6. DeeC

    Is there an activation fee? Also, I am somewhat skeptical having a camera watching. Who else would be watching is my concern.

    • Lisa

      DeeC, I would hope they have learned there lessons from other devices that have been hacked and have safeguarded things by requiring a two-factor authentication, but you definitely bring up a good point. Would love to know as well.

    • Hunterwoody

      That was mine too. Too many horror stories of people hacking those. I got halfway through and chickened out.

      • Mae

        I know! Who knows what kind of creepy weirdos could be watching your dog pee on the floor!

    • Amy

      Then don’t sign up, it’s that easy. I understand your worries, but they really didn’t need to be expressed, as this company is doing something great for free.

      • Mae

        I hope you know I was joking. 🙂

  7. C.J.

    I don’t know if you should give your license # out like that….

    • Beth

      I told my little sister and she did not want to give out her license number.

      • Kels

        It’s public record though. I’m a nurse in GA and anyone can search on the website for me by name and get my license number, if I’ve ever had an action taken against my license, and a as an added bonus, my home address. 🤦🏼‍♀️

        • Peaches

          he license# I understand but your home address should NOT be linked to that in an easy search. That just ain’t right!

    • Libbys4

      Your NPI is public knowledge as well as your license.

    • Erin

      Anyone can look up your nursing license. It’s public knowledge

    • Whitney

      I agree..

    • Cbbg

      Did anyone get a confirmation email? I filed out application but no idea if it was received ?
      If you did- what the email it came from In case it went to my Junk folder? Thank you!

    • lynnleco


  8. Anthony

    Do you have one for police, fire, and ems workers? I’d love one of those to make sure my dog is ok between calls for service.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      We’ll keep an eye out!

    • Sunny Oregon

      IDK about police, but I’d be very surprised if they didn’t include firefighters and EMS as a branch of medical workers. Pretty sure the people saving lives, applying tourniquets, etc are definitely medical personnel!

      • catherinerucker

        EMS is the red headed stepchild when it comes to public service. Unlike those working in a hospital setting, they don’t get a heads up what they are walking into.

      • Anna

        Police DO apply tourniquets and save lives. Actually they are the FIRST responders clearing the scene so that ems and medical workers and fire can come to a scene. They are very often medical workers but also getting blood on them while keeping us safe.

  9. Rn404

    Thanks so much…I am a RN and we have been working in overdrive the past few weeks and this would be a nice perk to have. I applied and hope to get one. Also our license number is public knowledge so ANYONE can log onto each respective state board of nursing website and get it…

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re SO very welcome! Thank you so much for the work that you do, Rn404. 💖 We appreciate you!

  10. Heidi Allen

    Omg. This would be so amazing to have! My sister has one and loves it! All the hoist working seeing my pups and to give them a treat would be AMAZING! Y’all are amazing!

    • Heidi Allen

      I am a Flight Respiratory Therapist. I fly sick adults, children and babies. For 12 years now. I am also picking up in another hospital to help. It’s been insane! H

  11. Michelle

    Super cool product. I wish I could afford it. I’m an ER nurse. Last few weeks have been overwhelming but this is the job I love.

  12. April H

    It doesn’t insure you will get one, it says hope you are one of the lucky ones??! I was under the impression that you just apply and they give one to you, not aware it was a sweepstakes.

    • akzabel

      Same here. Title should be changed.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Everyone who applies and qualifies does get one! If you look on their Instagram page, they answered readers questions on that here:

  13. MaaMaaBear

    it does not appear as though everyone would receive one this is the comment after submitting my information… “Hooman, Thank you! 💗 We’ve received many applications and we’ll do our best to get in touch as soon as pawsible if you are selected. ” 🐶”

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! They are getting a HUGE response right now and are working hard to make sure that each application qualifies. If you are qualified, you should receive one.

      • Anita Mccartney

        I to work in the ER in Portland VA medical center how do we apply for one? No place to apply my TJ would love to see his mom

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          Click on the part in the post that says “free furbos” to apply.

          • Theresa Frey

            I and a acute Dialysis nurse with 4 fur girls .. this qould be perfect for them

  14. Jnog

    Why does it say “we will be in touch if you are selected?”

  15. Sarah

    Sooo initially they are giving them out for free, very nice. Then there is a monthly subscription after 90 days… $6.99/month or $69 per year. So it is very nice but then they kind of hook you in. I did see a nice camera that connects to a phone app where you can see and hear what your pet is doing and you can speak to them through it for only $30. I signed up for this but I think I’ll decline if they email me about it.

  16. Claudia

    I work in the Nutrition Department at a hospital. We are working long hours and with all the new regulations, it is very challenging to serve the doctors, nurses, patients and their families. Don’t forget about the EV technicians ( housekeepers ) who have to clean and disinfect all the areas as well.

  17. Sara

    Does this only apply to hospital workers? I am in a pharmacy which is also a medical field and I have a license. Just curious

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Sara! One of their questions is “At which hospital do you work?”.

  18. Kristin

    Is this only for dogs? I foster cats as well as have a few of my own.

  19. chanellemray

    Thank you so much!!!! Im in Hospice care, I run two offices in two cities and time away from home is becoming more and more. Thank you so much for allowing us to apply! I sincerely hope Im chosen for a camera. We have had to get created with our PPE, we having people in the community make cloth masks for us, we are having to care letters in our cars in case we are pulled over due to our state being on mandatory shut down, and we have started a food pantry for our patients, their families, and our employees. Several of our staff cannot work because they dont have child care due to the schools and daycares being closed so many of us are having to pick up extra hours! Being able to watch my furbabies at home would be such a blessing during this time.

  20. Emily widomski

    I have been working 9 days straight at my
    Hospitals covid testing centers… so much more time away from my fur baby. This would be awesome!

  21. Rn404

    I applied when it was first posted here…has anyone heard anything

    • Kande Parks

      I signed up the first day and have not received any follow up information.

  22. Lissa C

    What an amazing thing to do!

  23. robynedwards

    How do you sign up?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Just click the link for the free Furbos at the top and follow the directions.

  24. Dana Ellis

    These seem so cool! I have a German Shepherd at home that could you some checking in on while I’m working my shifts at the hospital. Fingers crossed for a free furbo dog camera.

  25. Keri Roskow

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Just click on the links in the post, Keri! Thank you for your service!

  26. Laura Walters

    Hoping to be selected. I’ve been quarantined from my children because I’m at high risk for exposure. I’m not the only one who is missing them. Peaches is very sad. Please help!

  27. Merina Sapkota Parajuli

    I am a nurse in St. Jude hospital Ca working in the frontline.

  28. Michelle

    Has anyone heard anything since applying for this? I filled it out in the first day they posted about it but haven’t heard anything back so far so was just curious if anyone else had TIA 😊
