The Tagg Pet Tracker is a great way to follow your wandering cat or an escape-artist dog.
My update on the Tagg Pet Tracker, I read some of the above comments about the QR codes and micro chips and stainless steel collars, I think these are all great ideas, I will be looking into some of them to, and like I said in my 10 May post there are a lot of tools out there to put you on the right track of finding a lost loved one, I think by putting a set of them that works for you is the best way to go about it. I am thinking of looking into the QR code and the stainless collar to add to my Tagg, and my dogs are chipped also and have the classic dog tag also. Since I have had the 4 Tagg Units, I have one as a spare that I keep on the charger at all times so when I do have to charge a unit up for one of my 3 dogs I just rotate it in. That way there is never a dog not covered. I have charged them twice since getting the units, once when I got it, and another time when I got a message that battery was getting low. I will be charging again tonight, they are about halfway drained according to the My Tagg Homepage. Also took the dogs out for a walk tonight and did a Tracking session as me and my wife were walking the dogs, about every two minutes I would get an update of there location, and what I did not know that I thought was cool, that there collar started to blink a blue light when a started the tracking session, great if your dogs are lost in the woods at night or even out on the street, gives your dog a better chance I think. Later I will be doing a test to see how long a Tagg unit will last once away from Tagg Charger Unit. Happy 4th And thanks to all the Men and Women and Pets that have served in our armed forces.
Conclusions If you live in an urban setting where your dog is almost always either inside or on a leash, the Tagg probably isn't a necessity. But for suburban or rural homes, where you let your dog roam around parks and backyards, the Tagg could be an invaluable safety net should your pet decide to stray too far from home. The Tagg's activity tracking feature is also really well implemented and fun to use, and will likely help encourage you to keep your pets in tip-top shape. For simple tracking, the closest thing we've tested is the , an all-purpose GPS device that's designed for people, pets, and valuables. You get a similar geo-fence feature that alerts you when the GTU 10 exits a designated zone, but it lacks the activity tracking features of the Tagg. It's also $199 with a $50/year service fee. At $99.95 up front and $7.95 per month, the Tagg Tracker is a bit pricey, but really, you can't put a price on the safety and well-being of your pets.

If you have another dog that might chew on the Tagg, you can buy a protective cover for an additional $6.00.Tagg GPS Pet Tracker. Track your dog's location via GPS. For peace of mind to know where your dog is if they are prone to running any chance they get... ie. Siberian Huskies!!Like many of these comments, I too have Whistle. I bought Tagg when first out. It was great and precise. They were constantly updating the technology to their website and support was great! At one time, after warrantee had expired, one of the collar transmitters wings were chewed off. Tagg replaced unit FREE OF CHARGE! The day Whistle acquired Tagg, all went to hell. The site did not track daily activity like Tagg did. Receiving notification your pet is outside the safe zone is a minimum 10 minutes until you get the notice and likewise when returned to safe zone. The “real time” tracking sucks, pet may be out of safe zone for 30 minutes and will show only one position on map. Tagg would actually track pets travel. False notices, like middle of night when dogs sleeping in my room not wearing transmitters…Go figure! As for customer service, Tagg was top notch…Whistle sucks! Have tried contacting them several times via Whistle site never getting a response. Currently have one of my two just stopped working. Looking for replacement for two better made GPS units that comes with good customer service> Any suggestions?
