We’ve covered a lot of POV cameras and accessories on The Gadgeteer.  These cameras, like the GoPro, often have mounting systems that allow you to mount them on your helmet or on a car dash, so it “sees” what you see.  What if you’d rather somebody else carry the camera, or you’d like to see the event from a different viewpoint?  With the Mutt Mount, you can strap your GoPro or similar POV camera to your dog, so you can see the hike or training session from his viewpoint.  The Mutt Mount is a harness device that comes in three sizes to fit dogs with a 15″ chest up to a 36″ chest and 25″ neck.  You can put it on so the camera hangs at the dog’s chest, or you can flip it around so it stands on the dog’s back.  A video on the website shows what a drug-sniffing dog with a back-mounted camera sees and does as he inspects a truck, which might be useful for evidence.  You can purchase one for $45.60 directly from Mutt Mount or from Amazon.
