I still remember as a child looking for a lost dog or cat. We would drive around with the window down yelling our dog’s name. We would shake dog food bags and yell, “Treats!” I was so full of anxiety and worry.
Now that I live in the mountains, my dogs sometimes go running. Usually they go to the river, but sometime they visit a neighbor. Sometimes they are gone for hours. With Tagg-The Pet Tracker, I can now find them and not worry when they will come home.
Bear hunters use GPS expensive collars to track their dogs when they have treed a bear. The concept for Tagg is similar, only it is for our beloved pets.
Tagg is an advanced GPS tracking device purpose-built for pets, that will notify pet parents through text and/or email alerts if a pet leaves his safe zone—and allows their current location to be tracked so the pet can be brought home. The lightweight Tagg tracker attaches to a cat or dog’s existing collar, is designed to be worn at all times, and can operate for up to 30 days before recharging. A Tagg master kit is $99.95 which includes one month of free service; after the first month, service is $7.95/month.
If you can afford the monthly service, and your pet disappears frequently, I think this is a great product! It certainly would give me piece of mind, especially since one of my dogs has been found many miles from home when he wandered. I like that this GPS collar is more humane than a shock collar. As long as your pet doesn’t lose the collar, I think it is worth it.
Tagg even has an iPhone app!
