GPS Dog Tracker (Global Positioning System) is nothing new to avid hunters. For years they have used GPS systems on their dogs to easily track them. The GPS collars for dogs have allowed hunters to take their time following the dogs, as opposed to frantically trying to keep up price tracker while hauling their guns and equipment. With the advance of technology and the lower cost of GPS trackers, everyday pet owners are now equipping their canine companions with the technology to make sure they are never “out of sight”.

The Difference Between the Chip and GPS Tracking. Many humane societies, governments, and veterinarians have endorsed use of the chip. It’s hard to adopt a puppy or dog from the pound these days that does not have the chip already installed. The technology behind the chips is simple, it holds the owners information and any facility with a scanner, usually veterinarians and pounds, can see who the dog belongs to – hopefully with up-to-date contact information. GPS trackers for dogs present a clearly different and, in this writers opinion, more effective option. Even the inexpensive GPS dog trackers (under $100 U.S.) allow a dog owner to track, in real-time, where their dog is.

One option relies entirely on someone finding, capturing and delivering your dog to a scanning capable facility. The other, GPS dog collars, puts the control in your hands. You can easily see where your dog is and go get your furry best friend.

Making your evaluation. You can get GPS Dog Trackers in many different flavors. The most expensive options will tell you whether your dog is sitting or standing. The middle of the road up to the most expensive trackers will come with a hand held device to show you your dogs location. These options are more for the hunters or the dog owners that really love their cool technology. The less expensive options can track your dog in real-time, but you will need to log-in to a web site to see their position and pay a small monthly fee. The good thing about these is that they actually monitor your dog and send you an alert if it leaves a specified area.

The options for making sure you never lose your family pet have grown increasingly. Choosing an option that delivers the pet back to you as quickly as possible at a price your family can afford is crucial. The good thing is, there are some fantastic options at very attractive prices. Never worry about your pet getting out of your sight you’ll always be able to see where they are.
