Dog tracker

There are several different types of GPS trackers for dogs on the market today. Most of the GPS trackers delivers the position via a VHF transmitter and receiver, or via a GSM transmitter and a smartphone. Devices with VHF transmitters are large and also require a VHF receiver, usually with a long antenna. These GPS dog trackers are attached to a vest, that the dog is wearing during hunting.

Other types of GPS for dogs are smaller, lighter and the dog wears it as a neck collar (illustrated in the picture below). These devices have a longer battery life, so they can last for several weeks before recharging. Many dog owners use their tracker daily, even when the dog is not hunting or searching. You never know when you might need it.

Tail it Pet is a small GPS tracker for dogs, that can fit even the smallest dogs. With a weight of just 0,8 oz, the dog hardly notices the GPS tracker attached to its collar. In this article we will take a closer look on these small GPS trackers for pets. You can read the test at the bottom of this page. The Norwegian magazine “Hunting” has written and published the test in 2018.

GPS hundBig test of our Tail it Pet

“Simply impressive, the size and weight taken into account”

Our Tail It Pet tracker has been through several tests in various medias, but never before has it been tested so thoroughly over such a long period of time. The magazine “Hunting” brought one of our GPS for dogs outdoors, and tested it in both wet and dry climate. The Tail It GPS tracker for dogs, was tested in different settings. High up in the mountains, down in valleys, in the countryside and in densely populated areas, only to stand the test with brilliance.

Battery capacity

Furthermore, the magazine “Hunting” has tested the battery capacity of our GPS for dogs, with amazing results. Our first version of the Pet tracker had a 420mAh battery and an expected 10-day lifetime. The test panel used the tracker for 11 days with updates every single day. When we now launch our latest edition of GPS for Dogs, we have upgraded the battery to 580mAh, while we have cut down on the information being sent. This doubles the battery life of the device. The magazine writes: “Our experience is that you can trust Tail it when you need it.”
