Use my GoPro to spy on my dog


I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if it is A) possible; and B) HOW to connect my old HERO 3+ to my home wifi so I can spy on when my dog gets on the couch.

The dog is a hunting dog who is trained partially through use of a shock collar (please no silly comments on this method, trust me, it ensures his SAFETY in the field) and I want to be able to correct this behavior at the appropriate moment-- IE: when he begins to step up on to the couch. The problem is that he knows better than to do it when I am home, so I have to pretend to leave the house, go around the block, and be able to watch and apply the corrective signal. The exact moment is the key here; it would be unfair to randomly apply correction once he has been napping on the couch all day because he would not associate the behavior/correction properly (information/disclaimer for any PETA members out there wanting to troll this forum).

Is it possible to connect the GOPRO to our home wifi, so that I might be able to observe at a greater length than the GOPRO's wifi permits? I have tried multiple times with just my phone & the GOPRO connected in the normal fashion, but I can't get far enough away for the dog to think I'm gone and proceed with his couch mounting.... :/ Dog is too smart for his own good, LOL.

Buy a wifi ip camera for about 30 bucks off amazon then watch all the time. Some of them will let you talk to your dog also and have motion detection.
