Pet Lovers Everywhere!
Have you ever had your pet run away,or wander from your home when you thought he or she might be sleeping? Well if there isn’t a “Pet Finders Anonymous” group somewhere… there should be! Experience taught me to “never leave home without one!”
The unthinkable happened! It was wintertime and my Bichon Frise used the doggie door before bedtime. My grand kids were visiting and Chante usually would go hide behind a plant when they were visiting so my thought was she was hiding there until bedtime and then would come jump on my bed later after they went to bed. Wrong!
The next morning I awoke and no Chante! I was frantic… woke the grand kids up and we began frantically searching for my beloved little dog.It was a Sunday. We searched everywhere… knocked on doors, called the pound to no avail! I noted that my little Bichon had clawed her way and dug at the corner of the yard until she was able to squeeze her fat little body through an opening. I was heartsick.We took out an ad in the paper immediately Monday morning, visited the local pound, called the Humane Society again searched the neighborhood, quickly posted fliers with her picture… still no Chante. To make a long story short, we did find my Chante two days later after a few calls and two visits to the pound. She was pathetic but I was so relieved I hugged her tightly wanting to scold her but unable to do so! Of course it cost me a bundle to bring her home but I tell this story because I remember how panicked I was. If I had had a GPS Pet Locator I would have been able to track her within minutes, and rescued the poor thing from the freezing cold.
My story was one full of luck. Someone did pick her up and take her to the pound and we were reunited but had we lived in the country with no passing cars and dangerous animals lurking or had she been run over by a fast moving vehicle, our story would have had a terrible ending. A GPS Pet Locating device is the perfect solution to your worries. I wouldn’t be without one ever again!
Here is how the GPS pet locator works:
GPS Pet Location Systems use an ordinary collar that is equipped with GPS technology. Just snap the collar on your dog, turn it on.The handheld unit can track up to three dogs simultaneously. A collar is required for each dog.
GPS Dog Fencing:
GPS pet locators are also designed so that you can easily set up a” GPS Dog Fence”. A GPS pet locator
uses GPS coordinates that you establish by walking the perimeter of your desired fence, and commits them to memory. If your dog exits this perimeter, an audible alarm will sound. For example, you may wish to establish your property line as the perimeter for your dog. After setting up your fence, this information would be stored in your system and if your dog wanders off your property, the alarm will sound. Because this boundary is electronic, you can erase and create new ones as often as you like, giving you the flexibility for any situation or condition.
To summarize the capabilities and ways a gps pet locator works
GPS pet locators vary in design and capabilities but generally speaking they are similarly equipped. I have outlined the following.
GPS pet locators can:
* Locate your dog anywhere within a three mile distance using advanced GPS technology – simply
by placing a collar around your dog’s neck!
* Displays your dog’s exact location, current movements and velocity on a hand held color LCD screen.
* Create a virtual GPS dog fence; an alert will sound if your dog crosses the defined boundary.
* Track up to three dogs simultaneously
* Easy to use – no installation required; no third-party services required.
* Hand held unit and collar run on rechargeable batteries (included).
Experience taught me a valuable lesson. Our pets are nearly as precious to us as our children. They are definitely worth the investment of a GPS pet locator. Don’t be caught unawares without one!
