If my dog ever manages to escape my backyard and run away, the last thing I want is to do is sit home and hopelessly wait for a good Samaritan to read the pet tag and contact me. My dog, a yellow lab, is so beautiful, and usually well behaved, that I imagine whoever finds her might be inclined to keep her. Or if the economy gets much worse, they may eat her. Either way, the Tagg GPS Pet Tracker is the way to go.
The Tagg system allows me to quickly locate my pup in an instant. The Tagg system will set you back about $199 which includes one year of cellular service (no idea of the service cost after the first year). The system is designed for pets over 10lbs and is waterproof. The battery, while rechargeable, only lasts up to 30 days. Video of the Tagg system in action after the break.
