The GPS tracker for dogs is gaining popularity every day. It will be appreciated by both the owners of urban pets and those who live outside the city – there is no difference. But he was especially fond of hunters: the device allows you to track the movement of hounds even in the most remote areas.
However, a GPS tracker is useful not only for dog owners: it is also often purchased by farmers – for example, to control livestock on the run.
The way a GPS tracker works is similar to a mobile phone: it has a SIM chip that uses cellular signals. The device receives information about the coordinates of the location and transmits data from the satellite system to the owner’s smartphone, tablet or computer.
Advantages of a GPS tracker:
As a rule, the tracker weighs no more than 40 g. The compact and lightweight device can be easily attached to the collar. Picking up a collar with a tracker will not be difficult: there are models focused on both miniature and large dogs.
Charge duration. Good devices can go without recharging for a long time.
Ease of use. The tracker communicates with the smartphone through an application that can be installed on a tablet or smartphone with any operating system.
Most trackers offer not only the function of determining the location of the dog, but also tracking its activity, load, and even health status. You can set the gadget to remind you of the need for vaccinations, haircuts, etc.
SOS button. If the dog is lost or something has happened to it, the surrounding people can give a signal to the owner.
Waterproof. There are models that are not afraid of rain, snow, or even immersion in water.
control of large areas. Thanks to a highly developed system of cell towers, the GPS navigator is practically unlimited in range. Although it determines the location worse in areas with a poor cellular signal.
Šta da tražim?
When choosing a model of a GPS tracker for a dog, the owner of the animal must be extremely careful: after all, this is a rather complicated device that requires careful analysis before buying.
If your pet loves all kinds of reservoirs, rivers and ponds, pay attention to waterproof models.
Choose a model suitable for the animal by weight. This is especially true for owners of miniature pets or, conversely, very large ones. If an unsuitable gadget interferes with the first, then the latter may simply lose a small tracker.
It is not recommended to choose a model, focusing only on the price. Alas, cheap devices can break quickly. At the same time, the wide functionality of expensive models often remains unclaimed.
Sometimes it is important not only to keep track of the dog, but also to be able to hear the person who will find the pet in case of loss. In this case, you should pay attention to models with the ability to communicate with the owner.
