A cat’s stories

Hi, my name is Spritzer and I am a Tractive cat. Last year I lost my way home, so now I’m not allowed to leave home without wearing my tracker. My mum thought it would be fun if I shared my adventures to show people how far I actually travelled and what I am up to now. So, I now have my own Facebook page promoting the Tractive device and showing people how it works. You can also follow me on Instagram where me and my mum share “a cat’s stories”. (more…)

Freedom & offleash play with Tractive

Meet Sally, a two-year old Samoyed pup composed of fluff and mischief. She’s typical of her breed, being exceptionally friendly, fun-loving, high energy and very photogenic! She requires lots of exercise and offleash play to burn off all her energy. Luckily, we live in Scotland, with miles of unspoilt beaches, moorland and mountains within easy reach. However, there’s always that fear “what if I lose sight of her, how will I call her back?”. That’s where our Tractive GPS, we have the standard white model, has been invaluable. Whenever Sally’s been gone exploring for more than a minute, I can turn on the “LIVE tracking” and see exactly where she is. If she’s heading away from me, I whistle loudly to attract her attention before she goes out of hearing range. She’ll happily come running right back as she knows she’ll be rewarded with a hug and a tasty treat.
