As humanity is taking huge steps towards a new era in which technology plays an increasingly greater role, owners of dogs and cats around the world might see the end of the nightmare of constant worry about their beloved animals. Smart GPS collars and trackers have appeared on the market and are constantly being improved in order to bring the so coveted peace of mind of each human with a four-legged friend.
Below, we outline the main features of these new gadgets and show you how you can easily track your pet with just one click on your phone.
Track your pets wherever they go and wherever you are
GPS dog trackers can be very useful and save you from going through the horrible ordeal of searching for your lost dog or cat, no matter if it’s been missing for minutes or for days. The trackers are relatively small units which you can attach to your dog’s collar. They connect to your phone through a mobile app and allow live tracking of your pet.
Many tech companies have developed their own tracking devices. The gadgets are most often waterproof and provide wide GPS coverage.
Whistle GO Explore is one of the most popular products, as it tracks both location and activity. However, these trackers require a Wi-fi network and function in North America only. Another widely known brand is Tractive GPS dog trackers (Tractive GPS tracker). They offer coverage in 175 countries, do not rely on Wi-fi and have a wide range of characteristics.
There is no arguing that the market has much to offer and that with time more and more extra features are added to these products. What no one will tell you, however, is that many of these special additions are in fact quite unnecessary and significantly shorten the battery life of the trackers. Even if the ads guarantee a week of undisturbed usage, it really depends on how you use your device, and sometimes it turns out that “less is more”.
We at DoggoCollar have been working relentlessly in order to provide you with the best possible GPS pet tracker, assuring that you get all necessary features to keep your dog safe without worrying about charging. Soon enough, we will also release our second generation DoggoCollar dog tracking collar. It will not only ensure that you are constantly aware of your furry pal’s whereabouts but also give you an insight into your pet’s activities.

Setting up a safe zone for your pet
If you are living the big city life, did you ever think how cool it would be if you had a huge back yard where your dog or cat could run wild and free without any risks of getting lost? Obviously, that is a bit difficult to accomplish, not to mention expensive. Luckily, modern technologies have found a way to make both pets and their owners happy.
If you have a GPS pet tracker, you can take advantage of the so-called virtual fence. This feature, geofencing, allows you to outline a zone on the map in which your pet can roam freely without making you worry. If the dog or cat wanders off outside the predefined area, you will receive alerts on your cell phone right away, and will be able to track the live location of your pet.
With our DoggoCollar dog GPS trackers for example, the location updates every 2-3 seconds. Thanks to the unlimited range of the smart tracking devices, you can let your pets be adventurous and track them from anywhere in the world without fretting about losing them!
Non-stop GPS coverage
You might think that trackers sound cool, but have doubts that they will ensure your pet’s safety all the time? While there is no 100% guarantee that nothing will go wrong, companies are doing their best to provide the most effective service possible and to assure pet owners that they will have non-stop access to their beloved animal’s location.
Apple Airtag for example is a product which allows you to track your personal belongings, and can be used on pets’ collars, too. It relies solely on other Apple devices and a Bluetooth connection in order to build a network. That would be helpful in an urban environment where the density of iPhones is quite high.
However, if you go in the woods or the mountain, you will most likely not find that many fellow Applers and it won’t be possible to monitor your pet’s movement all of the time.
We at DoggoCollar have found a solution to this issue. The smart dog collar is specially designed for pets and is set up in a way that allows it to connect to all cellular networks, no matter how many are available in a specific location and at a specific time. Thus you can track your dog even if reception is not optimal during your walk.
Calories burned … by your dog
If you have ever entrusted a dog walker with the care for your pet and not been quite certain if he/she ran enough during your time apart, you would normally take your walker’s word for it. However, there is a better option now, you can take advantage of the activity monitor feature in the dog trackers and collars.
That’s right, you are not going to be the only one in the house counting their steps and calories anymore! The dog GPS tracker monitors your pet and his/her activity levels. Based on your dog’s breed and size you can see recommended food and walks norms and see what he/she has been up to.
Then you can decide if you should offer your four-legged pal some extra treats for jumping and running all day long or give a push to your dog walker to encourage some more physical exercise if your dog is getting slightly chubby. Our second-generation DoggoCollar smart dog collar will be a great asset when taking care of your pet’s health.
