Tractive likes to mention a few statistics on their website, and I’ll restate them here: 10 million pets go missing each year worldwide, and less than 20% are reunited with their owners.
I don’t know how factual these statistics are, however I know from personal experience that many dogs and cats get lost. I’ve lost a dog for several days, my neighbour lost her dog for almost a week, and one poor lady I know lost her dog on Christmas and never got her back.
It’s very sad, however it’s very preventable. This is why pet tracking devices from Tractive are so special.
How Does it Work?
The concept is very straightforward, and the features are very impressive.
The Tractive GPS device fits on your dog's collar. You are able to track their location with the supported mobile app.
You can track them in real time, create a “virtual fence”, or safety zone, and track their movement over a 24 hour period. When your pet leaves the safety zone, you will get a notification.
