My Lady loves us a lot and we love her the same. We would never intentionally run away from home, but accidents do happen. Like the time my brother Seager darted off after another dog. He led them on a merry chase through the fields and into the woods. My Lady was sick with worry until she had him back home safe. These days, in addition to adding a fence, Seager is sportin’ a new-fangled Fi GPS Dog Tracker & Activity Monitor Collar that will track him if he manages to escape chasing another critter.
The collar also keeps up with how many steps he takes. Long story short, and because most of us are seniors, that ole arthritis is startin’ to affect our joints. Apparently, bein’ overweight makes it worse on our legs and back hence the reason we are on a diet and exercise routine. It’s more like a boot camp if ya ask me and I would argue that all this new walkin’ we are havin’ to do is makin’ mine hurt WOOF! But, here we are, dietin’ and walkin’, dietin’ and walkin’….sigh. And, there is no cheatin’ and no runnin’ off ’cause the collar is like an all-seeing eye! It is countin’ steps and trackin’ where we go!
Lemme fetch my Lady to tell ya more about the collar and how it works. I’m gonna go rest while I got a chance WOOF!
Here’s my Lady to tell ya more ’bout the GPS Dog Tracker & Activity Monitor from Fi!
I believe I can speak for everyone when I say our dogs are a part of the family. And, when one goes missing it is a heartbreak that is unbearable. Of course, we provide them with an identification collar and microchip but these types of pet identification only work IF they are found. Personally, I prefer to KNOW where my dog is at all times and that is where the GPS Dog Tracker & Activity Monitor collar from Fi comes in!
The GPS Dog Tracker collar alerts you to your dog’s movements and whereabouts which is invaluable if your dog slips it’s leash or escapes the fence. You get alerts as soon as they have left their safety zone and can track their location. For anyone in the heartbreaking situation of having a loose dog, this is a Godsend!
In addition, and another fun feature is the activity monitor which is Bluetooth enabled. You can use it to see how active your dog is or use it in conjunction with an exercise program to keep your dog fit and healthy. Check out the features below!
Fi GPS Dog Tracker & Activity Monitor physical features
The Fi GPS Dog Tracker collar is made of heavy-duty materials and is extremely durable. It is chew-proof and water-proof (even the ocean). It can sustain more than 30 minutes of complete immersion in river water and salty ocean water without damage.
I love that the buckle is extra heavy-duty to prevent it from coming open. It also features a heavy-duty D-ring for attaching a leash. It is generally dog-proof and if anything does go wrong, they’re only an email away.
Seager can get a bit of a wild steak. Can’t you tell from his crazy expression?! 🙂 Most of the time he is a good boy, but let him catch sight of another dog or a cat and he will slip his leash in a heartbeat. He has led us on a merry chase many times before. It is one of the many reasons I wanted a GPS Dog Tracker collar for him.
The Fi GPS Tracking collar instantly tracks your dog’s location no matter where they are in the US. It works 24/7 on the new LTE-M network. You can add as many owners to your Fi account as you need and also give temporary access to a dog walker to keep your pup safe and protect your privacy.
You simply set up safe zones and when your dog leaves the zone, it will instantly alert you on your phone. And, if you are traveling, you can create as many safe zones as you need. The collar features an unmatched battery life. Just put it on and forget about it.
Seager is generally healthy but he has packed on some pounds. As he is aging, and arthritis is setting in, being overweight is not his friend. It is never a good thing, but for dogs with arthritis in their hips and knees, it can be a serious medical problem. So, much to his and the pack’s dismay, we recently started on a diet and extra walking time. We are loving the activity monitoring feature of the GPS Dog Tracker collar to help count our steps.
You can set daily, weekly, and monthly step goals to get your dog up and active. You can also see how active they are when you aren’t at home.
Seager wasn’t a fan of all the walking at first but has since decided he will go along with it. And, I am happy to report his hard work is paying off. The pounds have started melting away.
As the pounds fall away, he is becoming more and more active. It is a great feeling to see him reach his goals on the activity monitor.
Somedays, I think he still dreams of escaping from the boot camp drill. Thankfully, if he does manage a great escape, he can’t escape the tracking power of the GPS collar!
Do I need a subscription for the GPS Dog Tracker & Activity Monitor?
A subscription gives you access to the full capabilities of your dog’s Fi collar – allowing Fi for remote access to your dog’s location and activity. The cost of the subscription covers the GPS/LTE connection to your dog’s Fi collar. Without a subscription, the Fi collar will still function – but if your dog wanders outside the range of your smartphone or Fi base, we will not be able to locate your pup. They highly recommend purchasing a subscription if you’re worried about your dog running off!
With an active subscription, the Fi collar will act as its own cellular device on the AT&T LTE-M network. Your smartphone can be on ANY cellular network – it does not need to be on AT&T for the Fi collar to function.
Note: Without a subscription, AT&T LTE-M network connectivity and ‘Lost Dog Mode’ are not available.
We are thrilled with the Fi GPS Dog Tracker & Activity collar! Being able to track a lost pet is worth its weight in gold for a pet parent. And, the activity monitor is a great bonus! It is kind of like a Fitbit only for dogs 🙂 We are also impressed with the durability of the collar. It has survived the rowdy and ruff play of the pack and the occasional dips in the pool.
Save the worry and have peace of mind! Get your dog a Fi GPS Dog Tracker & Activity Monitor Collar today!
