GPS tracking collar for dogs - Good - or junk?
Has anybody had a GPS tracking collar for their dog? How accurate is it? Does it work well in remote areas such as the AZ National Park next to the Mexican border?
Honestly you are better off going to the vet and getting your dog chipped. Because if your god does ever get out they have a chance of losing the collar, but if you get a tracking chip your more likely to get your lost pet back. Now days most vets will check for a chip if a lost animal is brought in.
Gundogsupply.com has some gps collars with some great reviews. High quality stuff and great customer service.
Gps works everywhere. You will need to buy a topo map to get a detailed understanding of where your dog is as the gps units aren't made to have enough memory to know all of North America. It's a small cost.
Also depends if you want an active (expensive) or passive (cheaper) unit.
I agree with the chip idea. A collar can be removed easily. A chip can't.
It's a good idea because unfortunately, there is a huge black market for stolen pure bred dogs.
Good, very good. It gives you a bit of piece of mind knowing that if your dog gets lost, you can easily find him. And it is very accurate.
