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.

Safe Zone as Danger Zone!

When the outside weather temperature permits it, Bubby-the-Cat heads out of the cat-door and free-roams our neighborhood for most of his day. People readily recognize him by his bright ginger-colored striped coat, and by that unusual looking white thing he wears on his cat collar. Keenly aware of my responsibility for Bubby’s safety, I tremendously value Bub’s Tractive GPS collar for monitoring his whereabouts. More than once my Tractive GPS has saved Bub from becoming lost when he wandered into unfamiliar territory.

How to handle a dog in heat

If you have an unspayed female dog, knowing the symptoms of heat can be very important in order to manage her reproductive cycle. Learning the stages of the cycle will allow you to prepare for a dog in heat and the symptoms connected to the different stages. It could also help you prevent having new puppies when you actually didn’t plan for them and allow you to plan for puppies when you do want them.
