GPS Dog Tracker

Post by eyembrad » Mon May 12, 2014 2:43 pm

Does anyone use or have experience with a GPS dog tracking collar attachment in case of escape?

One of my co-workers recently had a lab pup escape so now I am thinking a GPS tracker for Sawyer's collar might be a good investment.

Thanks Debby.

I searched "GPS" and nothing came up.

but when I searched "TAGG", then those articles came up.

Yep hehe, I just somehow remembered the name TAGG (it stuck in my mind) so that's how I was able to find the topics here on the forum. :)
It seems like a cool idea! :D

One of our puppy owners, Dokken's pet parents, have one of those.

Thank Tracy. I already got in touch with Dokken's owners.

The TAGG GPS tracking device seems really great. I might give it a try.

I have one for my tamaskan Zephyr... well had it never stayed attached to his collar and well and my other dog found it when it popped off and well used it as a chew toy. Great piece of technology but do get the protective sleeve for it.

You had the Tagg brand pet tracker? I ordered 2, one for Sawyer and the other for yet-to-be-named Sylvaen Tessen...who arrives in 7 days might I add. They arrive today. Can't wait to try it out later!!!! :P

Get the protective sleeves for them... if your dogs wrestle or mouth each others necks they easily detach and become chew toys... kind of expensive to replace. Been hoping for some extra collars to go up on ebay since the last one was chewed up but no luck on the extra collars just the original packages.
