If you have an expensive dog, and let's face it most of us wouldn't want to put a price on our pet, GPS dog tracking technology is one option to look at when thinking about the security of your dog.
GPS dog tracking systems are a relatively new idea and can be quite expensive, but global positioning system technology is an excellent way of keeping track of your beloved dog.
It will keep track of your pet's whereabouts at all times, no matter where they roam. The combination of GPS and cellular wireless technologies found in the Global dog tracking system will give you peace of mind when it comes to keeping track of your pet.
If you travel with your dog, he often escapes from your yard, or you are worried about him being stolen, GPS dog tracking may be for you. This system is also used to track the position of hunting dogs.
Some of the things you need to check before buying a GSP dog tracking system are cost, weather resistancy, what sort of coverage will the system offer and the frequencies of updates.
One of the best on the market is GlobalPetFinder.
The system consists of a GPS tracking device and a cellular transmitter. The five-ounce, water resistant device is fastened onto your pet's collar or harness. The unit runs on three rechargeable AAA batteries. These and a charger are included.
You can define a virtual fence for your pet via the globalpetfinder.com Web site and if he strays your pet's location is automatically transmitted to your wireless device, a cell phone, a PDA, or a computer via SMS or email.
You'll also be alerted if the temperature conditions become dangerously hot or cold for your dog.
Global petfinder needs no surgical implants, is safe and causes no harm to your pet.
As said before, GlobalPetFinder is not cheap, but it does mean if your dog goes missing, you have an excellent chance of being reunited with your faithful companion.
