Might get one for the wife
I have one of the earlier model. It's very good and I'll happily continue the subscription when it next comes up.

Worth noting though, they require a phone signal to work (actually twice over - the unit itself needs a basic 2/3g signal to report its location, and your smartphone needs a signal to receive the location) so if you live out in the countryside somewhere with patchy reception then probably not much good to you.

I walk in a suburban woodland with a soppy retriever who occasionally likes to chase a squirrel and get lost on his way back. This is peace of mind that on the rare occasions that we really do lose each other I can quickly fire it up and get an idea where he is. GPS can be patchy in woodland, especially when in full leaf, but will always get a rough signal eventually, and usually refines to ~1m accuracy within a couple of minutes. With active tracking enabled it's close to as accurate as my Suunto GPS hiking watch (have tested). Needs charging every few days, but actually sends you a message to say it's running low which is handy.

I seen this yesterday. Think my poor pug would be dragging it around on his neck

Think it's worth noting you need to pay a subscription though.

Honestly, I have one for my dog and its not as big and bulky as it looks, plus you would only have it on when you take them out for walks without the lead?

Subscription required starting from £3.33 if you do a 2 year up front sub so that's £79.92 at least on top.
They're free with some dog insurances, I was offered one but there is a monthly subscription. made it useless for me as my dog is my shadow.

I think it will be fine whilst he is a pup but I don't think he will be doing much running or getting lost when he is older #puglife

You can always get the cat version if your dog is tiny.

Lol.. he meant for the wife
Sofa...... kitchen .......... sofa .......... garden..........sofa. Don’t think we’ll be needing this . I’m out.
Anyone know of a pet tracker where you can add a Payg sim and text it? Had two Kippy trackers but they both failed with the same problem (GPS).
The price is creeping up - £38.21 ...
Dogs deserve privacy. This is a breach of their Canine rights

I've had one of these for my puppies - TBH I used it for a month and then it's at the back of a drawer as I'e not had to worry about mine running off

Once you work it out - it's a great bit of kit and can track exactly where your dog has been as it plots their path on a map - I bought 3 years sub a year ago I think, which I'll never use now!
Oh and I had the smaller white one

I use fakespot myself on occasion, but I’m starting to wonder how accurate it really is. I often get almost identical data results on two completely different items.

Agree - perhaps we need a review of reviewers who review reviews.

I have just looked at a couple items I purchased on Amazon over the last 6 months that I was happy with and Fakespot is quite damning in their review of the reviews.

A lot of sellers not happy about it (perhaps a good thing) but a lot of buyers also very sceptical.

Ah well, back to sticking one finger in the wind and judging for myself!
