GPS Tracking For Dogs

Today I am going to be talking about GPS Tracking For Dogs, focusing on Tractive GPS for dogs and cats.  Of course, I’ll be looking at the dog side of the equation.  It helps you know exactly where your dog is in real time. It also lets you know when your dog leaves a pre defined area, even if you are not at home. 

Pros

This product has a 4.4 out of 5 star rating.  The price is reasonable at about $50, a few dollars a month subscription.  Even if your dog goes running off (like after a deer), the GPS keeps up with him/her.  It is very highly water resistant, which is very important.  

Even if your dog is not lost, it lets you know where your dog goes, to keep track of his movements.  It allows you to set up a perimeter, so that you know when your dog has left that area, even if you are not at home.  Most people stated they had good customer service.  Many say there is very good tracking, and very good coverage.

Cons

The GPS doesn’t work too well if your dog is inside, and you have to have a good network in place for it to work, which can be a concern if your dog is in a very remote place, and sometimes if it’s in a crowded place.  A few people stated they didn’t have very good customer service.  Some said that there is a lag on the tracking, and the battery that dies after only a day.

In Sum

The Tractive GPS is reasonably priced, tracks well, and has good customer service.  A few had an experience that was the opposite of that.  But all in all the 4,000 reviews ranked 4.4, so it is a very good product.  If you would like to check out the Tractive Gps, please click here!

  1. Smiles this is for Dog lovers, some are even obsessed with dogs, the truth is I don’t like Dogs but I have a close friend who does and I’m definitely sharing this with him. Dog Tracking is very important ,Though,it will help you locate the dog if it’s missing and you wouldn’t need asking people if they find it for you

    • Thank you for your comments, and I appreciate them even more since you don’t like dogs.  I am glad you are considerate enough to think of your friend.  Yes, a tracker at a fair price, saves a lot of trouble and anxiety.  Have a nice day!

  2. Hello there,

    Thank you so much for sharing your review of the Tractive GPS tracker tool for dogs. I have 3 dogs and I took them to the vet to get tagged with microchips. I know that microchips are not equipped with GPS tracking. So, I sure need to find a reliable GPS tracker.

    You mentioned that the price is $50 and a few dollars a month subscription. Could you tell me what is the subscription for? Do we get extra features?

    Thank you for your response. I have bookmarked your site for future reference.

    Cheers,

    Ferra
