Tractive GPS Trackers are created by a successful pet tech company for dogs and cats. These are perfect for pets who might have a habit of escaping or still learning the rules.

There are brackets to hold the device on your pet’s collar. You can set up a virtual fence. The app will help you see where your pet has been. You can share the details with your partner or other family members.

The devices were selected to appear in the Amazon TV show named The Pack. All of the dogs in the show were equipped with a GPS tracker. The show was hosted by gold medallist Lindsey Vonn. It follows 12 teams of dogs and their owners on an epic adventure.

Tractive GPS Tracker Features:

  • Virtual fence – get notified when your pet leaves the safe zone
  • Live tracking to see updates
  • Location history – view your pets favourite spots and where they like to visit
  • Activity monitoring – minutes of activity and rest, with approximate calories

The USB charger is a little chunky. There is no manual inside the box.
