When I was asked to review a Tagg GPS Pet Tracker with my own dog, I was eager to get to work. Shiner has free roam of our yard, and she doesn't stray far but what if she did? She could go almost anywhere and how would I find her? I'd probably be relying on help from a nice stranger who picked her up and carried her off to the local shelter for me to find her later. It's a less than ideal scenario.

Actually, while photographing Shiner for this review she decided to test me by going out the small opening in our fence to the other side. She had this look on her face like "Come on Mom! Let's go explore!" I'm pretty sure she only did this because I was out there with her.
Finding a lost pet swiftly is critical. It's a big world out there and there are lots of things are pets can be injured by. Cars, mean humans, poisons, coyotes, other dogs, and the list goes on and on. If your pet gets lost, it's important to know about it as soon as possible and try to locate them.

The Tagg GPS Pet Tracker is a simple solution to keeping an eye on your pets at all times. It's a bit like stalking your dog, or cat. This little device is attached to your pet's collar or harness and tracks their GPS location. If they should ever stray outside of their "zone" you will receive an alert via email or text or both, depending on your Tagg settings. Then, you can locate your pet to see exactly where they are on a map. At any given time, I can logon to my Tagg phone app and click "locate". Tagg will tell me where Shiner is.
You can even set the Tagg up to track your pet's activity at home while you're away at work. This setting tells you how active they are during the day.
Setting up your Tagg online is simple, though it does take a little bit of time. It took me about 30 minutes to get everything set up. Still worth it for the trouble it will save you later on. The Tagg GPS Pet Tracker does need to be charged on the home docking station every once in a while. The battery of Shiner's Tagg lasted about 20 days before I had to recharge it.

Tagg is waterproof and very sturdy. Although, it shouldn't be left underwater for extended periods of time. But don't be worried about a little rain while you're dog or cat is wearing their Tagg. Tagg is suitable for pets that weigh 10 pounds or more.

I really like our Tagg GPS Pet Tracker. It's given me an ease of mind lately. Especially since I watched my dog leave our yard right in front of me. I still think she did it to test me, but I really don't know what she's thinking sometimes. Other than that one time, I haven't received any alerts that she's left her zone.
