Everything You Need To Know About How Dog GPS Tracking Can Help You

By Guest

Losing a dog is an experience that most dog owners go through at least once. Even when you try to contain them, dogs will either jump over or dig under fences. After you discover the dog is gone, your options for finding it include driving around the neighborhood and putting up posters. Dog GPS tracking systems have been developed to help with this common problem.

Don’t confuse the GPS tracking with the implanted microchip. The microchip has to be inserted by a veterinarian and is only useful when a shelter or vet finds the dog. Your contact information is scanned and then you are notified. A dog tracker is simply a device attached to the collar. When a dog goes missing, GPS technology is used so that you can find the dog on your own as quickly as possible.

Most systems have more in common than not. You will have to create a perimeter for your pet to regularly wander. If the collar crosses this boundary, an alert will be sent to you.

When the dog escapes the designated area, an alert will be sent. You will either be contacted by phone, text message or email. If you regularly walk your dog, you may want to find a system that has a function that allows for this.

Then there is the actual method of tracking your lost puppy. There are slight differences in how that is done from brand to brand. Some are handheld devices with a screen, so you can see for yourself where your dog is. Other systems may require you to call a phone number for turn by turn directions. Then there are systems that allow you to go to a website to track the dog.

The handheld devices with LCD screens are the top of the line equipment. You can receive updates on a location every few seconds. The map on the screen lets you see the direction your dog is headed and how fast it is moving. Another bonus is the ability to track multiple dogs with one handheld unit and multiple collars.

GPS dog tracking is great for hunters, there are even styles made just for this purpose. Keep track of several dogs at once no matter what location you’re in. You can even find systems that let you listen in on what is going on at the other end.

When making your purchase, look into the little things. Find out the range of the device to be certain that it will work for your location. Make sure the collar is waterproof, because you never know what conditions your pup will encounter.

You love your dog like family. Dog GPS tracking is a great way to ensure that you won’t have to worry about a lost dog again. There are many different brands and styles to choose from, with a range of price points. Keep your dog safe by knowing where he is and keeping him home with you.
