Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Heading Explanations:

  • Brand should be obvious and the link to the Company Web Site
  • Support Method email / chat / phone
  • Price for the device not including monthly contract if any (US Dollars)
  • Rating taken from Amazon if they sell the item
  • Cell Requires cell network access
  • Contract Requires an ongoing monthly Contract; price is for a monthly contract
  • Range minimum - maximum under optimal conditions (Unlimited infers cell phone coverage)
  • Activity Also monitors the pets activity
  • Device Supported devices blank if none


Notes:

  1. Indicates only that cell Service is required, not necessarily a phone.
  2. Garmin seems to have only devices for hunting dog training.
  3. The English on the web site is so bad, I'm not sure of a lot of things.  It does, however, look interesting.
  4. While it says no cell is required, it also recommends Speedtalk at $5.00 a month for a sim (I'm confused)
  5. Rebranded as Tabcat and targeted towards cats.
  6. In ground fence
  7. FindMyPet phone goes to Trackimo ... I talked to a completely lost 'support' person.

Okay, I'm done with this unless someone has a tracker that they want to add.

I haven't included the "QR" types where someone has to scan the code and report that to the owner.  Maybe that's a little more effective than a chip, but not worth my effort (Sorry)

I've seen comments that there are 30+ GPS trackers on the market but I kept running into trackers that had been purchased by another company (Trackimo = FindMyPetGPS, for example) and companies that have simply disappeared.
