The best all-in-one dog tracker. See where your dog is (and where they’ve been) with the Tractive GPS DOG tracker and app. Check on your buddy’s health, monitor their activity, and keep them fit.
Our dog likes to run about in the woods at the local country park. Using the Tractive we can see where he is. Also, by using the live tracking option when he runs into the woods we have learnt that normally he returns to the spot where he went in.
It is fun to use the history option to look at where he tends to go and what patterns there are to his behaviour. The web platform works great – both on our android phones and laptop back home.
Just like when you use your phone or sat nav, there may be areas where you lose signal. In the large country park where I normally use this, I know that there are some black spots where the signal does not work. This seems to coincide with sections where the phone signal is not so great. Outside of these black spots, the Tractive works just fine under trees. For the purpose that I am using this, which is finding my dog if he gets lost, the occasional loss of signal is not a major problem for me.
Tractive GPS Tracker for Dogs Review
A nice plus is the virtual fence option on the app. You can get notified whenever your dog leaves one of the safe zones you’ve set up. The tracker itself is able to fits dogs of all sizes. Also, it has up to 5 days of battery life and can be recharged in less than 3 hours. It’s 100% waterproof and shock-resistant. Also, I love how it is easy to find at night and in low-visibility areas thanks to LED lights and sound features.
I use the original Tractive collar clip and it has held up perfectly against vigorous dog running through bushes and being submerged in ditches for short periods.
You do need to pay an annual fee for the communications/online service, but I feel this is worth it for peace of mind. Also bear in mind, that if your dog gets lost and is picked up by your local Council you could be charged around £90, so it could ultimately save you money.
Overall, the Tractive GPS Tracker for Dogs is a must-have for any dog owner. The annual fee is a small price to pay for keeping tabs on your dog.
