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.

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.

Great Tracker! With a yearly price!

After 7 months with a tracker on My golden retriever Chloe, I really was not too passionate about the product. It just never seemed to be needed, and always felt like I had to charge it. After A WEEK of holding a charge, this tracker single-handedly saved Chloe’s life, and a ton of stress….
My names Nate, Chloe’s dad. I went away from the house to an event 30 minutes away when I get a call from a family member says that Chloe ran and chased a bunny and did not come back and kept going. As a dad and the caller we were both frantic but knowing that I had the Tracker on her was a huge relief and being able to live track it. She was in the middle of a felid. Knowing this information, I was able to give direction, and help navigate family members to the right direction tracking their location and meeting them up. How he knew? The flashing light that was on her tracker that was shining in the dark. Truly an unbelievable experience, extremely thankful for this tracker and to be able to track my dog so quickly before I have even gotten home. I could not imagine what we would have done without the tracker, 10pm at night, blindly going out to look for her, I would not be typing this right now just 2 hours after the runaway. Extremely pleased and grateful . Not to mention what that tracker has been through rain, snow and ponds, really shows it durability! You have officially won me forever Tractive

I can finally sleep again

I have never had a problem with my cat (Kitty) until recently. She’s been an inside/outside cat for around 10 years. My neighbor never had a problem with her until he got a new cat. Kitty is very territorial of property and attacked his cat (Lulu) when she came into our yard. This obviously made me worried since I don’t want my cat to hurt his cat or vice versa. This device gives me amazing comfort to know where she’s been all day. Kitty also never liked collars and I thought she’d hate this one but she doesn’t. It’s weird to see how comfortable she is with the collar and she understands she needs it on to be outside. Battery life has been great so far it’s on 81% after 2 days of use and it takes 2 hours to charge. The app is VERY user friendly. Kitty has been through a lot with me and she is like an unofficial service pet she has always found a way calm me down. This is one of the best investments I’ve ever made. The GPS location is very accurate and will show you the area or direction of your animal (if your animal tends to be in a shaded spot like under a parked car it might be a little off but that’s expected, you’ll at least know the area they are in). If you have a dog or cat you can train them to know to come home with the ring feature. If you are worried about your outdoor or outdoor/indoor animal at all, this is definitely a must buy.

It works perfectly! (See updates at bottom)

I have been using Tractive for about 6 months to track my whippets when they are off leash. I had used another tracker previously and it was junk. Tractive works. It connects quickly and the active tracking keeps track of my dogs even when they are running 30-40km hour. The battery is ok for me because we take the trackers off at home, it’s only for free runs (about one hour a day) in the woods (just in case). So I only need to charge the trackers a couple times a week and that’s ok for me. The only issue I have had is the attachment clips. We have lost the trackers several times now. As they are activated for “active tracking” I have been able to find them (using the beeping noise) but it’s NOT easy in the forest! Usually takes about an hour. I’m down to my last clips now, if I lose one I guess I will need to buy more? Please give a better solution for the clips. Thanks.

Update: contacted by Tractive and they will send me new clips. I’m going to add another star for the good customer service. Trackers still work great.

Update 2: (after more than a year experience)The new trackers are great! The clips are much more convenient. I really can’t think of anything else I would want from the trackers. Customer service deserves 6⭐️ this is a really top company!
