GPS Dog Collars - Keeping Track of Fido the High-Tech Way...

I was driving back from the health club listening to a commercial for GPS dog collars, something I didn't know existed. So I came home to see what kind of GPS dog collars they have on Amazon, and found some.


This Garmin Astro GPS Dog Tracking System has got great reviews from about 20 customers so far, and the product description says that if you're tired of losing your dog in tall weeds and such, put that thing on him.


I didn't know it had a vest-type thing and everything for the doggie to wear.


Then there's this GARMIN 010-11049-00 Astro DC 30 Wirelesss Collar Transmitter, which I'm guessing has to be bought in conjunction with the other products -- check the reviews and that frequently bought together listing beneath the others to know for sure. So far, that's got about 5 good reviews.


We've been looking at puppies this weekend at our local neighborhood rescue dog store called "One of a Kind Pets" -- but we haven't taken the plunge to buy a new dog yet.


Our two Rotties died about two years ago, so we're not sure we're up for the challenge.


But I'm reading Marley and Me after seeing the movie, so look out! I'm getting the urge for a new puppy.


Anyway, I was thinking people could throw those doggie GPS collars in their kids' bag (or husband's for that matter) but I know there are smaller GPS trackers for that...

I wonder why it didn't become popular earlier. I mean one of the first things i'd think if I invented gps would be "so this thing lets me track different things? what gets lost often?" Obviously animals get lost all the time - it should be a norm to buy collars like this.

Nice post..........

Thank you for sharing the benefits of the GPS dog collar. Last year nearly 10 million pets went missing but only 2 million were found and returned to their original owners. Now tracking & recovering pets through GPS technology is very easy. The GPS dog collar offers total peace of mind since your dog is always being monitored, no matter where you are.
