As dog lover and owner of two awesome pups, I am constantly worried about their whereabouts and often fear losing one or both of them while hiking off-leash through our local woods. While walking through Show Stoppers, a CES event, I ran across a company called Tagg the Pet Tracker and asked for a brief rundown on how their product can keeps tabs on my best friends.
By installing a tracking device on your pets collar, Tagg will monitor your pets location on command, or if your pet travels beyond a pre-set boundary. The collar attachment works off of GPS and can be monitored from the web interface, or from the Tagg Android app itself. At only $99 for the device and the charging station, I would consider that areasonable price for huge piece of mind. You get the first month of service free with the purchase of the unit and following months will cost $7.95 each. Jump past the break for a demo video and app download links from the Android Market and be sure to check out the rest of our CES coverage.
