Details

Tracking: Instead of using GPS, this pet tracker uses a radio frequency signal to monitor your pet. The handheld device sends out a RF signal, and the tracker on your pet's collar will bounce back the signal, provided it's within the 2-mile range (range affected by dense forests, tall buildings, and hills). If you want to take your pet hunting or running in a national park, this is a great option for you!

The great thing about the RF tracking is that you don't have to worry about Bluetooth range, cell signals, or WiFi connections. The radio signal is very accurate, and the handheld device will lead you directly to your pet, thanks to the real-time responses.

Features: If you have a smaller pet, the lightweight, compact design of this pet tracker will be perfect. You can track up to 3 pets at the same time, and you'll love the 90-day battery life on the collar. It's water-resistant, so it will keep track of your pets in heavy rains or if they decide to go swimming.

The display is a bit small, making the blip marking your pet's position a bit hard to see, especially in low-light environments. However, the handheld device is easy to set up and get using right out of the box. It will display the distance to your pet as well as the direction. You can use the handset to program safe zones between 50 and 300 feet away, and the handset alarm will sound within 80 seconds of the pet leaving the safe zone. For those who live on large properties or in rural areas, this is an excellent choice.

Price: The pet tracker system will run you close to $240, but you'll never have to pay for extra data plans or monthly service contracts. It's a fully self-contained system that we find to be a great value for the price.
