If your dog is prone to running off when unleashed in an open space, and sometimes a little tricky to track down. A new GPS tracking system designed for pets has been launched which might be able to help you keep a remote check on your dog via your smartphone.
The goal of the Tagg system isn’t just to find a lost dog, the Tagg
system has been designed to help you not to lose them in the first
place, allowing you to see where your dog is and be notified if he or
she wanders a little too far from home.
A lightweight GPS tracking device attaches to their collar and lets
you locate and track your dog using a computer or
smartphone. Watch the video after the jump to see the Tagg Pet GPS
tracker in action.
The systems allows you to setup Tagg zones, or a "geofence” for your dog. Once the tracker is fitted to your dogs collar you are then notified by texts when your dog leaves the Tagg zone. Email are also sent from the system when the batteries are running low.
The Tagg Pet GPS tracker costs $200 a year and more tags are
available for $139.99 a year. more information is available from the Tagg website.
