Our question this week was:Do you like the GPS for Dogs?
Hi – thanks for your email. There are some models of the dog GPS that seem to have some good features. I don't actually own one and however, I've read about them and think that they are interesting "gadgets". They would make a great Father's Day present for some guys!
From what I read, the features to look for in a GPS include: Reliability – The Garmin brand seems to be pretty reliable
Warranty – get the max or considering charging on a credit card that will double the manufacturers warranty
Dog location – should show dogs orientation and location
Distance signal will track – some go a couple miles to five miles. Consider what you need.
Dogs status – some will show the dogs status such as if he is running or sitting
Waterproof –a must!
Sends updates to your computer, PDA or Cell – good if this feature is important to you
Monitors pets environmental temperature so you know if your pet is "hot" or cold
The product that seems to have the best features is this one.
Does anyone have any experience or tips on buying a dog GPS that you'd like to share?
P.S. – Do you have any great pet tips? I love learning from pet owners and have been looking for some pet tips. I might try to share some of these with other PetPlace users! Send me your pet tips!
