Just in time for the holidays: The new PetChatz HDX raises the bar on video-based, pet care technology

PetChatz launches the newest version of its digital daycare system with enhanced video capabilities and connectivity to improve the video chat experience for pets and their parents

Burnsville, MN (November 5, 2019) – Pet parents just can’t hide how much they love their fur babies. And with the holidays right around the corner, many people have their pets at the top of their gift lists. In fact, the average American pet owner spent $183 on their pet during the holidays last year, and as the 2019 holiday season approaches, tech products are likely to be a hot item for pet owners who increasingly use technology to manage all aspects of life. PetChatz®, a leading pet technology company that pioneered the video treat cam and digital daycare system, announced today the availability of PetChatz HDX, the third-generation of the company’s award-winning, patented Greet & Treat® videophone that allows pet parents to check in with their pets from anywhere, anytime via their smartphones, tablets or PCs.

Available just in time for the holiday shopping season, the PetChatz HDX features the following new-and-improved capabilities:

  • Improved video quality in low-light environments and a wider camera angle to give pet owners a better view of their pets, both day and night.
  • Enhanced 1080p streaming and Wi-Fi connectivity that works on both 2.4 and 5G networks so that PetChatz users can rely on a stable connection to their pets.

“Our latest technology enhancements continue to raise the bar for two-way videophone systems — just in time for the busy holiday shopping season,” said Lisa Lavin, PetChatz founder and CEO. “The PetChatz HDX is the perfect gift for tech-savvy pet owners who want a clear, consistent, reliable connection to their furry friends any time, any place.”

According to Lavin, the new PetChatz HDX is now available for sale online at,, and for less than $350.

With PetChatz, pet parents can have two-way video chats, dispense treats, provide calming aromatherapy, play “Brain Games” with the PawCall accessory, stream DOGTV, and record/share sound- and motion-activated videos to ensure their pet is safe, happy and content. Also, because love is a two-way street, the PetChatz system allows pets to press the PawCall button and send a message to their owner when they’re feeling lonely. The durable, pet-safe PetChatz system mounts flush to the wall over an electrical outlet, to the optional PetChatz Stand accessory or kennel at eye-level, ensuring pet safety and increasing peace of mind for the pet owner while they are away from their fur baby.
