What is a dog activity tracker?

Dog activity trackers, as the name implies, help you track your dog's activity level.

They let you keep an eye on your dog's physical activity, so you can make sure they're getting enough exercise. Plus, you can monitor your dog's sleep and overall wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions

See all FAQs

Every dog is different, and how much exercise they need depends on factors like breed, age and overall health. Dogs need anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours of physical activity daily. Check out our guide on how much exercise a dog needs for a breakdown of dog exercise requirements by dog type.

Cats may seem happy to sleep most of the time. But getting enough daily exercise is crucial for a feline's wellbeing. Naturally, outdoor cats tend to get more activity than indoor cats. Experts recommend that all cats should get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day.

Pets who don’t get enough exercise may suffer from obesity, weight-related health issues, decreased mobility and a poorer quality of life. Inactive pets may also become withdrawn, depressed, aggressive, or hyperactive. Or they may develop unwanted behaviors, such as barking, whining, and chewing or scratching.

All you need is a pet and a Tractive Dog or Cat Tracker. Purchase your new dog or cat tracker in the Tractive online shop or another online retailer, choose your subscription plan, and download the app on your smartphone to get started.

Sign into the app and fill out your Pet Profile with information like your pet’s weight, breed, and birthdate. Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your phone and the tracker’s turned on. Attach the tracker to your dog or cat’s collar and voilà—let the pet tracking magic begin!

Activity data is calculated using a built-in accelerometer that measures your pet’s movements. Then, algorithms analyze the data and convert it into easy-to-understand Activity stats.

Tractive is more than just a pet activity tracker. Besides Activity, Sleep, and Wellness, it's loaded with tons of other pawsome features, from LIVE Tracking to Virtual Fence.

Try it for yourself and see what makes Tractive the best GPS dog tracker. And the purrfect cat tracker too!
