Is your dog an escape artist? Maybe you want to track your pup’s activity and monitor his or her health? There are a wealth of GPS products out that can help with everything from tracking your doggo’s location to tracking his fitness stats (yes, really). Here are three of our favorites here at Union at Carrollton Square.
Whistle GO Collars
Looking to go full Big Brother on your pup? The Whistle GO line is your choice. This collar does far more than simply track your dog’s location. Want to know how much ground your little buddy covers each day? Check. Calories burned? Check. Heart rate? Yup. It even offers guidance on proper food portions and tracks potentially problematic behaviors like scratching and licking. And it comes in a variety of colors and patterns. Oh, and about its tracking capabilities: Whistle collars notify you via email, text, or its app whenever your dog wanders from its designated safe place. Check out the full lineup of Whistle collars here.
Fi Smart Collar
The Fi Smart Collar is a sleek, stylish, unobtrusive, and feature-rich choice. You’re probably noticing a trend here, but this collar also does far more than track your dog’s whereabouts and provide alerts when your dog wanders astray. Like the Whistle collars, Fi tracks fitness data – steps, distance covered, etc. You can even see how your dog’s step counts stack up against other dogs with a rankings system built into Fi’s app. It comes in a variety of fashionable colors and patterns – and even has a built-in LED light.
Tractive GPS Dog LTE
Here’s our value pick. Tractive’s collar rings in at less than $50 and does the bulk of what the more expensive entries in the dog GPS market do. Aside from tracking your dog’s location in real time, it pings you when your pup makes a break for it. You can also track your dog’s activity with the integrated fitness tracker. It’s a little bulkier and not as eye-catching as some of its peers, but it’s worth a look if you don’t want to break the bank while corralling your wander-prone pal.
