Benefits of GPS Pet Tracking
Our pets soon become our extended family members and when a cat or dog goes missing, the trauma and stress involved is immense. Not knowing where to look and what to do to when your pet is lost is frustrating and not tracking them down in those all-important first few hours of being missing can even be fatal. However, thanks to the new wave of GPS pet-tracking devices, tracking and recovering your lost pets has become a whole lot simpler.
Basically, A GPS Pet Tracking system uses the same assisted global positioning satellite (A-GPS) technology that we use in our automobiles today. A transmitter is attached to the dog's collar and once activated, informs the owner of the pet's location through email or text alerts. Some devices allow you to pre-program designated safe spots such as your home or backyard, and when your dog leaves these areas you are immediately informed of the same, thus saving precious time in tracking the pet down. Since it uses GPS technology, you would be able to receive not only the location of your missing pet, but also instructions and directions on how to get there.
Some pet tracking devices are associated with a recovery center that is alerted once the animal goes missing and in this way, a combination of efforts take place for the tracking and recovery of your lost pet. The device is fitted with a bright LED beacon that is visible from over 100 yards, which is especially useful when your dog goes missing at night. Unlike some other devices on the market, you do not need to replace the entire device when the battery no longer works, as it is easily removable and comes with a rechargeable battery.
