Trackers for Dogs and Cats

Technology is advancing at a fantastic rate and it is sometimes great to see some of that technology filtering down to our pets.
Many of our pets are now fitted with microchips and these can now be used to operate cat flaps, letting only your cats in and not any Tom, Dick or Harry.

Many of you will have seen the TV programmes this year where small cameras were fitted to cats’ collars to see where they went and what they got up to.
Now, we are also seeing the emergence on the commercial market of tiny GPS trackers for dogs and cats. These are designed to be attached to your pet’s collar and they record where they go either as a download or in real time using an app on a smart phone.
Some of these devices are tiny and weigh in at just 12 grams! The costs of this sort of technology are also coming down rapidly and some are available at under £50.
So now, we can all find out where our own cat gets to and losing a dog on a walk  could soon become a thing of the past.
