The feeling that you get when you don’t know where your dog is, can be overwhelming. In the past, dog owners had to put up posters for their lost dog and hope and pray that fate would bring them back home. Thankfully, nowadays because of GPS for dogs, you can have peace of mind knowing the exact location of your beloved pet. Now that you understand why a GPS chip for dogs makes sense, let’s take a look at a few of the many different GPS collars for dogs out there.
SportDOG TEK 2.0
Designed for dogs 8 pounds or larger, the SportDOG Tek 2.0 is the new and upgraded version of the SportDog Tek 1.0. In terms of range, accuracy and reliability, the SportDog Tek 2.0 is one of the best GPS chips for dogs on the market today. One of its most appreciated features is that it offers a range of up to 10 miles. This GPS tracking device for dogs has 24 hours of battery life, a 3 second update rate, and has the ability to track up to 21 collars on the system, with the purchase of additional collars, of course.
It is the perfect system for hunting situations, where the dog may need to go into the water. This is because its DRYTEK collar receiver is completely waterproof, and submersible up to 25 feet. Even the handheld is waterproof and submersible up to 5 feet.
Find My Pet GPS Nano Tracker
With the help of The Find My Pet GPS™ Nano Dog Tracker, you never have to worry about not finding your best friend if they should lose their way. No matter where your doggie has gone in the world, this GPS tracker for dogs can tell you where he or she is. Wherever there is 2G cellphone service, you are able to stay connected to the whereabouts of your precious pooch.
Here’s how it works. You create alerts that come to you, or anyone else you designate. The app lets you know when your dog has wandered out of his designated location. This lightweight device attaches to your pet’s collar, and only weighs ¾ of an ounce! It is also very discreet at only 1.4 inches in diameter. Another great feature is that its battery life lasts between 2 and 4 days.
In addition to this, you can use the app for an unlimited number of pets, with the purchase of additional Find My Pet GPS™ tracking devices. You get 1 month of GPS tracking service for free, and after that, it costs $4.99 per month to keep track of your precious pooch.
D.E. Systems Border Patrol
The Border Patrol by D.E. Systems is completely unique. Not only does it function as a GPS tracker and trainer, it is also a GPS-driven electric dog fence. Although it does come with a hefty price tag, its multi-functionality more than makes up for the cost.
Designed for dogs 35 pounds and up, the Border Patrol system allows you to use the system for up to 5 dogs, with the purchase of additional collars. In terms of its training feature, you can train your dogs from up to 2 miles away, which makes it ideal for hunting situations.
Choose from 50 different levels of correction, which are used for both the training features and the containment fence.
