How does pet GPS tracker work?
Basically, they are just a GPS transponder that is attached to a dog collar. Different collars have different functionality though.
Some work the same as the smartphone app “Find my Phone” and allow you to pinpoint the exact GPS coordinates of the transponder on an app. Others are entirely self-contained and do not rely on GPS or your cellphone network.
You do have to charge the transponder. The battery life just depends on the model. Most transponders have a battery life of a few days.
Benefits of GPS Tracking System for Pets

The GPS pet tracking technology has evolved a lot from being bulkier and heavier to lighter and smaller. This means the pet will feel relaxed after wearing the equipment, and give you peace of mind by not stripping it away.
