Where do dogs go when they run away?

Dogs who run away are often chasing a scent or following another curiosity. Usually, they'll try to find their way back home again. But sometimes they get lost, stuck, or stolen.

The only way to know for sure where dogs go when they run away is with a GPS dog tracker.

Use Tractive to find out exactly where they are, at any time. Get to know their favorite spots, habits and curiosities, all while keeping them safe.

How far do cats go?

Studies show that cats tend to stay surprisingly close to home; male cats usually stay within about 1500 feet. Female cats tend to have an even smaller territory.

With Tractive, you can see exactly how far your cat roams with the Cat Territory feature. Discover if they go to the park, hangout in the yard, chase birds or visit the neighbors.

Plus, you can use Find Mode to uncover their hiding spots. And you'll get alerted if they roam too far.
