*** Unlimited Range ***
Tractive GPS trackers are the ideal pet accessory to track movement and keep an eye on your pet's location.

*** GPS Tracking ***
Need extra reassurance? Go into LIVE mode to follow your pet's every move, and get location updates in real-time.

*** Activity Monitoring ***
See how your cat or dog is doing. Track activity and compare with others. Spot sleep patterns and make sure they get enough rest and exercise.

*** Health Alerts ***
Your tracker monitors and tracks the sleep quality and activity patterns of your pet; when it detects something unusual, you'll get an alert via email.

*** Virtual Fence (Safe Zones & No-Go Zones) ***
Set safe zones - like your garden - as well as no-go zones your buddy should avoid - like a field near a busy road. You'll get a quick alert when they leave or enter one of them. You can set up several virtual fences, make them big or small, and move them easily across the map.

*** Radar ***
Pinpoint your dog’s location in close range. The closer you get, the more circles fill up on your screen. Perfect for indoor tracking and when GPS signal is weak.

*** Record Dog Walks ***
Save everything, from morning strolls to big hikes, with the Walk feature. Look back on your adventures any time.

*** Location History & Heatmap ***
Find out your pet's favorite spots, where they've been recently, and what they've been up to.

*** Location Sharing ***
Let friends, family and others you trust (like walkers or pet-sitters) track location and activity. You can also share real-time location with anyone with a single tap - very useful if your pet runs off and you need help bringing them back home.

Better for wide-ranging pets, a Tile worked better for cats with limited range. My big complaints are that the sound the tractive unit plays is too quiet to hear from even a few feet away, with no way to turn up the volume. (They state in their FAQs that a vet helped them determine what volume it should play at and the volume cannot be changed.) The light is very tiny. Also, minimum geofence size is too big, way larger than a small yard.

I tried the more expensive options but Tractive has been the most reliable tracker I've used so far. The battery life is great - I charge it once a week when it's getting low. Some other trackers need to be charged daily, which increases the risk of the tracker dying when we need it most - if our dog is lost! I've had it for 6 months and I couldn't be happier with this tracker.

Excellent so far. Using in a rural area with decent cell service. The tracker is compact and battery lasts weeks with the wifi feature. We've tested alerts and Live Mode and taken the dog to Canada and everything seems ok, although battery drains fast in Canada & faster in Live Mode. Biggest annoyance is the security model, which allows one owner plus "family members" but overly limits what family members can do and see. We'd also like more alert sounds and the ability to alert via Google Home.
