I bought two of these for my granddogs since my daughter and her boyfriend travel with their two dogs just about everywhere they go. Pros: - They fit easily on the collars, but I wouldn't attempt fitting it on a collar that's over one inch wide and I feel like it would slip around on collars that are less than one inch (for smaller dogs) - The app is so user friendly and I like that she could add multiple users to the same account so I can watch for them, her boyfriend can have the app, and of course she can. We loved that feature. -The app also is supposed to keep track of health/activity but it's not the most polished feature. -overall it tracks really well and has a longer battery life than most other trackers so we are pleased with that -even though its a little larger than we would like, it does the job - allows you to set your home on battery saving using wifi which helps extend battery life Cons: - the charging is super finicky and it doesn't plug in easily- its a magnetic connector and its just not 100% secure all the time. -It isn't "hard to spot" and this is something we aren't a fan of because the breeds she has are very desirable and one of them was a rescue that had been previously stolen from the first owner. -even though the monthly fee is relatively inexpensive, it would be cool to have a bundle offer for folks with multiple pets. Other trackers offered this but I chose this simply for the longer battery life.
I have had 1 tracker for almost 2 years and a second for about a year. Bottomline - they do not work as advertised and the customer service isnt' very good. Neither tracker can last more than about 36 hours on a charge. Customer service says to turn on the WIFI enabled track, but that doesn't allow you to do live tracking. Our WIFI is boosted to support operations in the adjacent shop. But that coverage area near the house goes into the woods where both dogs find and track deer. SInce I can't use the live track I should be getting updates every 15 minutes. Well, sometimes the first update I get that they have left the virtual fence comes after they are safe and at home. Again customer service gives me a soft answer - maybe you have bad coverage in your area. Ok - not every 15 minutes for the update but how about within an hour? I get alerts all the time multiple hours after the dogs are back at home. The best this gives you in terms of location is a relative bearing. Charging cable is extremely short and is magnetically attached - countless times I have put it on charge just to realize it disconnected. The attachments have failed on both devices - they are now duct taped to the collars. This device doesn't work in a wooded area - maybe a wide open neighborhood but don't count on it telling you which neighbors yard your dog has run to, only that they went that-a-way.
Works incredible for tracking and battery life is weeks at a time. I had a Whistle and switched to this because the whistle would always fail at tracking, which is the primary purpose. Bluetooth and app work flawlessly. Best tracker, hands down.
I got this brand two years ago for my puppy bc it was inexpensive. It was boxy, I had to charge it daily, and was hard to get on and off the collar to charge. They listened to all the comments and this new design is awesome! Very sleek and blends with the collar. The new fastener is rubber which makes it fit all sizes of collars. The best part? Charge lasts three days, even with lots of movement. The updated app I'd the cherry on top. Loved the new design for my puppy so got a new one for my adult pup. So happy with this product!
My very adventurous indoor/outdoor city cat went missing for six days -- that was way too much heartache for me and I got this collar the next day. It arrived very quickly and the activation and sync was seamless. I was worried it would be too big for her, especially since she is quite petite (maybe 7 lbs on after a big meal), but it doesn't seem to bother her at all. She uses it as a chin rest sometimes. It gives me quite an accurate map of her activity and huge peace of mind knowing I can go retrieve her if needed. The local leaderboard of other active cats is hilarious. I live in a city so that might help with signal -- a friend in the countryside did not have great luck with similar collars. Sometimes the GPS jumps and her path is not quite accurate, which is why I docked a star. Like it will show that she suddenly ran a block down when I don't think she did, I just think that's how the signal pinged.
I got this device because my dog occasionally wanders off into the woods during our hikes and takes her own sweet time coming back to me!! It is an awful feeling not knowing where she is! I was so afraid she would get lost. The Tractive GPS has been a lifesaver! When she wanders off (after a deer or whatever) I simply put it on LIVE mode and can see exactly where she is. It gives me such peace of mind. I can literally watch her wind her way right back to me as I call her. Worth every penny!!!!
Living on 2.5 acers in rural OR gives Gracie room to run. She doesn't always stay here or come back when called. Now we can find out where she is so we can track her down.
I have two basset hounds that love to roam and explore. With my tractive I can watch them on the app live to see exactly where they are. It gives me great peace of mind and has improved our outings.
We wanted something for our dogs to be able to roam our property without having electric shock. The invisible boundary that you can customize is great! I highly recommend this product. Alerts you immediately and location is very accurate
I wasn't sure t-mobile would work in my area. It worked fine at my home, detected the collar and set it all up. Very easy setup and no problem charging. Like how the charging is magnetic, and not a plugin. Brought my dog to our camp and was showing my son-in-law the live feature. he moved about 10 feet away and called the dog. Show up very well on the app. I'm sold. Now I'll active the second collar.
