How GPS Dog Tracking Collars Work

By: Gen Wright


The Global Positioning System (GPS) has changed the way we travel. No longer do you have to beg and plead the stubborn male figure in your life to stop and ask for directions because by programming a few simple coordinates into your GPS system you can know where you are at all times. But did you know that GPS technology has been adapted for use with your pet as well?

Thousands of pets are lost or stolen every year. You may have even experienced the heartache it brings. You do not wish to neglect, abandon, or lose, your dog, but it can be difficult giving him the freedom he deserves for the love that he gives to you without feeling as though you are keeping him locked away at all times. Not so if you have used GPS dog tracking collars.

With GPS dog tracking collars, you never have to wonder whether or not your pet is safe. You can give him the gift of freedom along with the peace of mind that comes from knowing he is protected at all times. GPS dog tracking collars often provide a wealth of safety features and support that shrink the world to a manageable size for you to keep up with the movements of your pet. You can even get 24/7/365 customer service support for aid in finding your pet.

Now if you are not yet comfortable with the technology it is understandable to feel some apprehension about trusting an electronic device with the safety and placement of your dog, but all you need to do is understand how GPS dog tracking collars work for the peace of mind you need.

Basics of GPS Pet Detection

Designate an area you would like as the home location for your dog. You will probably have to do this outdoors to get a clear signal from the sky since many GPS devices operate via satellite technology.

Sync the computerized collar with the main GPS unit, and attach the collar around your dog's neck.

Use the given directions to determine a safety zone for your pet, so that if he exceeds that location, you will receive immediate notification and be enabled to track his up-to-the-minute coordinates via the GPS device.

Rest easy knowing you can track your pet safely and effectively, even in heavily wooded areas. It really is that simple.

Of course, it is recommended that before you decide on a pet-tracking system, you research certain features, such as what the primary method of monitoring movement is. Does the GPS use a radio frequency (RF) or cellular technology? RF signals are great for tracking your dog's movement in open areas, but are not as effective in buildings or the aforementioned wooded areas. For this blanket of security, you may wish to try cellular technology.

Anyone who has owned a dog knows the joy they bring to life. Freedom and security are the two best gifts that you can give to them in return, and once you understand how GPS dog tracking collars work you can begin to provide them with just that.
