The Tractive GPS Pet Tracker is here to tell you where your dog is. Put that way, it sounds simple but when you think about the opportunities this offers, you realize that it is a must-have item, just like a collar and leash are.
The live mode of the Tractive GPS Tracker gives you a visual map of your dog’s whereabouts, anytime and anywhere. But Tractive also gives you the opportunity to learn more about your dog’s activity, exercise level and favorite pastime. Put a Tractive MOTION, pet activity tracking, on your dogs collar and you can track the fitness of your four-legged friend.
Let’s see 5 ways how Tractive products can help you and your dog! (These are brought to you by Breeding Business, the free online dog breeding magazine).
1. Enjoy Worry-Free Outdoor Adventures
An important part of any human-dog relationship is based on exploring the world together. Be it the new coffee shop down the road or a full afternoon in a wild forest.
Take the latter — most dog owners will use a very very long leash to avoid losing their dogs. Indeed, most owners don’t want to risk their four-legged friend chasing a bunny and not returning to them. So they use a very long-leash but also take the fun out of the equation.
With Tractive, you can check your smartphone and know exactly where your dog is — ie. next to you, or chasing a bunny. That way, if you see your pooch isn’t coming back to you, you can just walk to bring him or her back.
Long leads are so 1990’s!
2. Keep Your Dog Within a Safe Area
No need for outdoor adventures to get the most out of your Tractive pet tracker. Using the Safe Zone feature, you will receive an alert on your smartphone as soon as your dog leaves the safe area you designed yourself.
No need for dangerous dog shock collars, or expensive outdated dog fences. Simply decide what area is the safe area and be alerted whenever your dog is trying to go beyond. Most people will simply design their yard as Safe Zone, but you can draw any area!
If you are on holidays with your dog, you definitely want to use the Safe Zone feature to make sure your companion isn’t going astray following delicious local smells.Knowing where your dog is in real time gives you peace of mind Click To Tweet
3. Monitor How Much Exercise Your Dog Had
Knowing your dog’s whereabouts is a valuable goldmine! Dig deep into it and you’ll improve your dog’s life and health.
Using the Tractive MOTION Tracker and the smartphone App, you get detailed statistics about your dog’s activity: how long, how fast, how intense and how often! The Brightness, Temperature and Accelerometer Sensors are sources of even more valuable data (ie. it makes sense if you dog feels lethargic on a hot day!)
By setting daily and monthly goals, you can ensure your dog receives the exercise it needs to remain healthy. Compare month after month to make sure there is not a sudden decrease of activity. (The MOTION Tracker and the GPS Tracker are two different devices).
4. Peace of Mind While Traveling
All dog owners know this too well: leaving your dog at home while being away is emotionally tough. We get laughed at by those without dogs and get criticized because we dramatize the situation, but we really don’t. It’s just hard.
Just the fact of knowing where your dog is in real time is making a huge difference — it makes you feel closer to him or her.
On a more practical note, whoever is dog-sitting your pooch will know that your dog’s activity is tracked. Therefore, you can be sure that your dog will receive enough exercise.
5. Challenge Yourselves and Do More Together!
Tractive MOTION is not just recording your dog’s activity with extreme precision. It allows you to compare yourself (well, your dog) to other dogs around the world! Tractive puts some fun and challenge into your dog’s exercise!
Collect Pet Points and get badges when your dog surpasses itself. Become the best of breed or even the world’s most active pet! However, it’s not about having the highest-ranked dog, it is about working together towards a common objective.
Tractive creates a beautiful bond between your dog and yourself, it makes space for a lot of encouragements and happy moments together!
Let’s go, it’s time to create memories together now!
