Blink Mini
While treat tossing cameras are nice, your recipients can still keep an eye out on their pup with the less expensive Blink Mini. It isn't specifically made for pets, but it has 1080p HD video, night vision, motion detection, and two-way audio, so you can be alerted of any issues and talk to your pup. Plus, it works with Alexa, so you can have a full smart house.

FURminator Undercoat Deshedding Tool
The FURminator is the superior dog brush, as recommended by nearly 30,000 Amazon reviewers. The teeth don't look too deep, but they manage to remove loose fur in the undercoat without nicking skin or ruining the topcoat. That means significantly less shedding, and your giftee will be shocked by the amount of fur this thing pulls.
