GPS technology isn’t just for people, there is also a GPS device for pet. And one very noteworthy advantage of using pet tracking is that animals wearing this device is easier to locate in case they run away.
The Advantage of Using Pet Tracking
Ted Kerasote (author of Merle’s Door), after losing his pet dog Merle, has been looking for some ways to lengthen the life of his beloved puppy Pukka and is now using dog tracker to monitor the puppy. The dog tracker is not a device that can magically extend the life of a pet. But in a way, they do, as monitoring your pet using GPS can prevent them from being killed needlessly like being hit by cars in the streets or catching a disease, allowing your pet to live a longer life compared to those animals who are freely roaming in the highway. This is the advantage of using pet tracking.

When to Use a Pet Tracker
It would be convenient if you let your pet wear a 3G GPS animal tracker because of the following advantages:
- The advantage of using pet tracking while hiking, hunting, or simply walking with your dog is that your pet gets to enjoy outdoor activities you do with him off his leash
- If you live in an exceptionally large farm or property where your dog has a free reign
- If your pet dog is an escape artist, you can train him to suppress this tendency through positive reinforcement behavior modification, but there is no harm if you get him a GPS pet locator, just in case you are unable to curb his unattractive behaviorx
Pet Tracking Device for Cats
Cats are popular pets, but unlike dogs, they are not that faithful. They prefer to roam around alone than cuddle up with their owner. Cats are small animals compared to dogs. So when you purchase a GPS device for cat, make sure that your pet can handle it size wise.
If possible, allow your cat to roam only inside your house. Allowing him to wander outdoors is not recommended as they are likely to get assaulted by dogs and other cats or worse, hit by vehicles on the road, or poisoned, not to mention suffer from the extreme hot or cold weather.
