Aside from being able to find man’s best friend anywhere they choose, a pet tracker actually serves a bigger purpose to help out those furry little friends.

The thing about pets is that depending on their lifestyle, activities, diet, and other factors, they actually tend to get very fast just like humans. This is especially true for dogs that have given their existence a substantial age.

Pet tracker 2021

According to PetMD, 17.6% of dogs in the US, or approximately 13.9 million dogs, are actually obese! 35.1% of all dogs, that is around 29.9 million, are actually overweight! Another worrying statistic is that the American Humane Association estimates that over 10 million pets (both dogs and cats) are missing because they are lost or stolen each year.

For those curious about what a pet tracker really does, according to an article by PC Mag, the trackers tested use specific apps for iOS or Android that show the pet owner the collected data. Some pet trackers even offer a web-based interface like PetPace. However, this is only available to the vets who would pay an extra charge.

Which dog tracking system is the best?

A majority of the trackers would initially use Bluetooth, and some others would use WiFi to connect the pet tracker to the owner’s phone and upload the location and other data to the owner’s app that the pet tracker is connected to. Not only is this a very convenient way to track your pet’s progress, but it is also a very effective way to do it.

Choosing the right pet tracker really depends on what the owner is more concerned about. It could be style, location, fitness, and so much more. The most important thing is to get someone to observe the basic needs of man’s best friend.

For those looking for the perfect pet tracker, it is important to weigh which features are more important than others. While all features are equally important (tracking health, activity, and location), buying a tracker that focuses equally on everything can be quite expensive.

For those who regularly feed their pets and watch what they eat, getting a tracker that focuses on activity and location is more important. While almost all pet trackers automatically focus on location, the comparison is usually made between health and activity, as well as the price of the pet tracker itself.

Why are pet trackers important when it comes to pet health?

These pet trackers, which are focused on pet health, are very important for pets that have already had health issues. Although dogs are naturally strong beings, they cannot help but sometimes still suffer from diseases that require the owner to take special care of their health.

While health conditions can vary from dog to dog, the right pet tracker could highlight those particular health conditions more. Basically, it really comes down to finding a pet tracker that works best for them. Since most pet trackers work differently, it is up to the pet owner to find the one that will work best for their pets specifically.

Why is a pet tracker important? 2021

Due to the pandemic, dog walking has become a little more difficult for some people than it used to be. This is one reason why tracking a dog’s health is very important in 2021.

Since the dog is unable to exercise regularly, it may also be advisable to find an alternative exercise for him in the back yard. Monitoring their progress and making sure they have enough exercise is very important for pet owners who really care about the animal’s health and physique.

For those who train dogs for shows or who really care about the dog’s body, having a pet tracker is very important as the data can be collected and interpreted and mixed with the pet’s diet.

With a good estimate of movement, the owner can adjust the animal’s feed intake and other variables to ensure that their animal’s wellbeing is exactly as it should be.

Disadvantages of a pet tracker

One thing that pet owners should constantly be aware of when it comes to having an animal tracker is the tracker’s battery. Since it is still an electric powered device, it is very important to charge the Pet Tracker from time to time.

Some pet owners charge the pet tracker for a few hours when the pet is in the house. This would allow the pet tracker to be fully functional during the day and charge at night.

The good thing about charging the Pet Tracker is that it generally doesn’t take too long to charge and it works for a reasonable amount of time.
