    Great for health...miss on GPS

    By Dallas on Jan 9, 2021

    I had originally wanted to purchase this when I first brought my Golden Retriever home, but seeing as how the age needed for a baseline is 1 year, I waited. The health tracking aspect is absolutely wonderful. I love that it gives me progress on our daily activity goal, really gives you motivation to I had originally wanted to purchase this when I first brought my Golden Retriever home, but seeing as how the age needed for a baseline is 1 year, I waited. The health tracking aspect is absolutely wonderful. I love that it gives me progress on our daily activity goal, really gives you motivation to get out and play those extra few minutes. I love that it gives you baselines for their drinking, licking, sleeping, and scratching habits; this was a feature I didn't know about until after I purchased. It does take about a week to establish your dogs baseline activity and gets more precise the longer they wear it. Now, here's the flaw. It's advertised as a GPS tracker, but the GPS only really works when you're on WIFI. I took my dog to the park and while at no point did it alert she was far away from me as a "breach", when my husband and I later looked at map it had said she had been in a neighborhood nearly 1 mile from where we had actually been. It's not like we were in the middle of nowhere either, we should have had pretty accurate data for being in Arlington. We love to camp and hike, so the GPS feature was the primary factor in my purchase and the fact that it isn't reliable off a WIFI network despite purchasing the $90 AT&T plan is disappointing. As far as purchasing the product from chewy, that's the only reason it's getting 4 stars instead of 3. It shipped and delivered quickly and was packaged just as it would have been from the actual website. … more

    Used one day so far....

    By Farmmom on Jan 1, 2021

    I’ve had this on our 6 pound Maltese mix for 24 hours now. I will say it’s a little big for him and we’ve had 3 false escape reports so far. The pluses I like so far is that it barely has used any battery life, the app is super simple to use and set up preferences, and I like the light on the tracker I’ve had this on our 6 pound Maltese mix for 24 hours now.

I will keep giving this a try for a few more days and see how many more false reports come in. He’s hooked to our wifi and it will still send me a notification that he’s 0.3 miles away from home when he’s sleeping on the couch. If we still have issues I will return it. … more
