    Necessity Bred this Invention

    PawTrack makes a GPS dog collar that is definitely worth mentioning and reviewing in this series which is dedicated to marshalling the competent and superior GPS products designed for the purposes of knowing where your pet is at any given time. PawTrack was created by a pet owner who experienced that pang of anxiety for a lost animal one too many times and decided there wasn’t anything on the market that could sufficiently solve the problem so he developed his own product.

    This is another device that isn’t from any of the big names in GPS technology that is really new to the arena but so far it's getting good reviews and some happy customers. Bright Hub is all about the latest in technology seeking to inform the consumer with unbiased information. The challenge in making a viable pet tracking size has always been the size of the collar device. Garmin has some collar devices feasible for larger dogs, but PawTrack’s collar is designed to work well for your medium and smaller breeds now too.

    Before I go any further I want to make it clear that you should have a cell phone that can access the internet and have mapping and SIM card capabilities to get the optimal use out of this product. While you can track your pet on the internet on your PC at home anytime, when the dog is lost you want to be mobile while still being able to view his whereabouts on a suitable screen.

    The little box on the collar that houses the receiver has a small enough size and weight as to neither weigh down a pooch or get him tangled and snagged easily. It’s rugged and designed to handle what the elements throw at it. PawTrack is one of the few products of this nature which will actually work for cats as well which you can read all about in PawTrack the GPS Cat Locator. Within the black box are the essential GPS antenna, circuit board, modem, and the battery source. You have the advantage of dual tracking with GPS and cell phone networks in case either signal is weak.
