Finding Your Pet Using GPS

Oct 13, 2007
Our pets often go out of our sight and simply disappear. They seem so curious to explore the outside world that they are always trying to escape out of closed windows and locked doors. No matter how vigilant you try to be, a smart pet will always find a way out. Obviously, being out of the home without your supervision, they are exposed to dangers of all sorts.

Pets are instinctively adventurous. They love to explore their surroundings. Even the most careful and attentive pet owners will face situations where their cute little puppy would come up missing. Even pets like to live a bound free life, at least until dinner time. However, by then they cannot find their way home.

Without the safety of its master, the pet is all alone. It will face the dangers of cold weather, traffic on the roads and even the attack by other animals, including those if its own kind.

Protecting your lost pet -

The best way to protect them is obviously finding them as soon as possible. It's important that your pet gets home before it turns dark as the cars are less likely to notice them at night. The temperature also falls and the wild animals prowl across the streets of your town.

If you do not want to keep searching for your pet all across the town and cannot tolerate the heartbreak of loosing your beloved companion forever, you should probably consider using GPS technology.

GPS means Global Positioning System.

Global Positioning System is a method applied in tracking the position of any object, human or even your pet. This system works because the device worn by the person keeps a constant supervision over him with the help of the satellites. Just like it can help tracing humans, GPS can also be used to locate pets.

Getting Information through GPS -

You can access this information via your phone, through the internet or software that you can install on your PC. Some systems also permit data to be delivered to a cell phone on GSM network. (Global System for Mobile Communication)

You have an option of setting a safe zone on the GPS device which will begin to track your pet's location only when it moves out of the predetermined safe zone. Once they go out of this safe zone, you will be alerted. What's more, you can always reset the zone boundaries if you are moving to another city or going on a vacation.

The GPS system is a lot more powerful than the typical tracking collar with limited range. However, there is a cost for using this service. You will have to pay a fee to your service provider who monitors your pet's movements through GPS.

If your dog swims or loves water games you may consider buying the water proof GPS device. It is very important to note that by merely using GPS you cannot safeguard your pet. You also have to give it enough personal attention so that it doesn't want to leave.
