Track Your Dog
A GPS device for pets
Are your surroundings new and unfamiliar to your pet? Are you concerned that your dog might get lost during long walks or outdoor play time? Is your dog prone to ‘taking off’ if it sees something fun that grabs its attention? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you may want to consider extra precautions when enjoying the outdoors with your dog. One such precaution is the use of a GPS tracking device.
Today, there are many GPS devices available on the market for dogs. You can purchase one that can be attached to the collar, or you can also purchase collars with a built in tracking system. If you had this kind of device it may help take this type of extra stress out of your relocation. Giving you more time to explore and settle in as opposed to worrying. Your dog, probably also feeling anxious in its new home, will definitely appreciate the freedom that this device will make possible.
There are already several brands to choose from. A couple are discussed below;
One is called Loc8tor. It includes a tag which is attached to dog’s collar and a handset which receives a signal from the tag. It works even through floors and walls, and without any obstacles it can work within range of 400 feet.
Another device is Tagg The Pet Tracker. It enables dog owners to track their pets in real time. To use this device, you need to have a home computer and a mobile telephone. It works by first programing your pets safety zone. The safety zone can be your yard, a house, or even an entire neighbored. When your dog leaves the “safety zone” you will receive an email or text message (whatever you choose) informing you that your dog is out of the zone, and indicating its current location. It also enables you to track you pet’s movements until you actually find a pet.
Both devices cost about $100, but for some this may be a welcome expense. Nevertheless there are many more similar pet tracking systems, which can be very useful in various situations, like when pets are shipped by plane or after natural disasters.
If you are among those nervous dog owners, give yourself a peace of mind and enjoy the moments with your dog, without unnecessary stress.
