There’s no worse feeling than when your dog goes missing — something celebrities like Paris Hilton have even experienced. If you worry about your furry friend wandering off, you can give yourself peace of mind by outfitting them with a GPS tracker. The best dog GPS trackers provide real-time location updates directly to your phone, allowing you to quickly find your pet and bring them home safely if they wander out of your yard or get lost while out hiking. It can happen in a second. Especially for those of us that walk with our dogs off- leash in open areas. Or…for the accidental “oh the gate blew open” as happened MY case just the other day!

“GPS trackers have a lot of benefits,” explains Nicole Ellis, a certified professional dog trainer with Rover. “There is the obvious one of tracking our pets in the event they should get out, but there’s more than that. Quite a few GPS trackers will give you insights into your dog’s health, from how much exercise they are getting to the amount of itching and licking going on.”

When you’re looking at different GPS trackers, you’ll want to consider things like the size of the tracker, battery life, tracking range, and whether it requires a monthly subscription.
