Technology in the Hidden Fence industry continues to evolve and we expect the day to come when a GPS Dog Fence may eliminate buried wire.

GPS PET TRACKING

GPS PET TRACKING or GPS DOG FENCE?

As of June 2015, GPS technology remains far to spotty to trust a shock device on a pet we love.  Between trees, weather and satellite intermittent issues, too many variables can interfere with a pet’s necessary consistent experience.

However, Hidden Fence Company has several GPS and Bluetooth devices being tested in the field.  We believe the 24/7 ability to track your pet will help keep tracked pets safe.

Current technology may not be useful for actual containment, but there is a growing range of devices which can accurately track your pet, for fun and in case of emergencies.  All have annual subscription costs, some as low as $50 per year.  Most work well with a smartphone app, some require receiver technology beyond your smartphone.

Here are just a few of the current brands offering related technology:

TRIVO, BLUESAVVY, TAGG, WHISTLE, HIRO, SMART TRACKER,

POCKETFINDER, FITBARK, FINDSTER, STONETETHER, STICKNFIND, POD,

VOYCE, TRACKIMO, TRACTIVE MOTIONWONDERWOOF, TINTAG, PIP…GARMIN

More info here, including reviews.

Some of these products are already small enough to be worn 24/7.  One particular product predicts 12 months between battery recharges, permitting the ultimate in set it and forget it (unless you need it) usage.  Several of these items will go 3-6 months between recharges.

More to come, including a GPS Tracking product giveaway!
