The GPS tracker can be used in over 150 countries worldwide. This means that tracking is also possible on holiday. So you can also find your lost pet abroad quickly and easily.
The tracker offers the possibility to show the activity level of your animal. This allows you to get a comprehensive overview of the state of health. The steps taken and the calories burned are displayed. This evaluation helps you to keep your four-legged friend fit.

IMPORTANT: The GPS Tracker for the dog does not replace the leash! Please keep this in mind!

Transparency note: This post is not sponsored, but we received the tracker as a PR sample to test it and give our personal opinion. I'll tell you honestly - since we live abroad: We feel much more comfortable with the feeling that in the worst case scenario - which hopefully never happens - we can instantly find our favorite. Plus, we think the control of his activity level is mega cool and also the waterproof feature of the device, is an absolute game changer when it comes to dog accessories. Practical and super important to always be "in control".
