GPS-based pet tracking systems offer pet owners peace of mind and give hunters an advantage.
There are several GPS tracking systems for dogs and cats on the market. Here are some of the best ones:
The device is small, lightweight and waterproof. Plus it easily attaches to your dog’s collar.
You can view the location of your pet on a map from the friendly confines of your computer. For an added level of convenience, you can download the free Garmin Tracker app for your mobile device. This allows you to compare your current location to the direction and location of your pet.
Using your computer or mobile device, you can also create up to 10 geofences (virtual boundaries) for your device. When your pet enters or exits a geofence, Garmin can send you an email or text message notification.
2) Garmin’s Astro is the first high sensitivity GPS-enabled dog tracking system for hunters and sportsmen. This unique system pinpoints your dog’s position and shows you exactly where he is, even when you can’t see or hear him.
You simply attach the collar and go. As often as every five seconds, your dog’s tracking system transmits his position to your handheld, and you can see his current location and a trail of where he’s been on the Map page of your handheld.
Switch over to the Dog Tracker page to view a compass pointing to your dog’s location as well as his current status: whether he’s running, sitting, on point or treeing quarry. Astro can also sound an alarm to let you know instantly when your dog goes on point.
Astro boasts a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that can track your dog’s position even in the densest cover. You can track up to ten dogs at one time with Astro, at a distance of up to five miles away (depending on terrain). The system transmits information by line-of-sight, so it reaches farthest in flat, open territory.
The Tagg pet tracking system uses advanced GPS tracking technology to allow you to see where your dog is and receive a notification if he or she wanders off. The lightweight tracker attaches to your dog’s existing collar, and is designed to be worn at all times, even while swimming.
Tagg will send you a text message if your dog leaves the Tagg zone or an email reminding you it’s time to charge your tracking system. Tagg notifications make it the most efficient dog tracking system on the market.
