*** Activity & Sleep Tracking ***



See how active your dog or cat is. Set goals. Compare with other pets. Spot sleep patterns, and make sure your furry friend is getting quality rest.



*** LIVE Tracking ***



Need extra reassurance? Go into LIVE mode to follow your pet's every move, and get location updates every 2-3 seconds.



*** 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.



*** Find Mode ***



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.



*** 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.



*** Interactive Map ***



View the location of all your pets with trackers at the same time, or zoom in on a single pet. Add all your pets with GPS trackers in the Tractive app. Switch between regular map view or satellite view. Tilt the map in 3D view by using two fingers.



*** Up to 7 days battery life ***



Depends on usage, coverage and how active your dog or cat is. Set up a Power Saving Zone at home to maximize battery life.




*The Tractive GPS app works with all Tractive GPS trackers.*

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!

Works well

So far I’m satisfied with this. My dog hasn’t gotten lost, but we are traveling in an RV and she has been getting in and out at rest stops, gas stations, and strange RV parks and it is reassuring to know that if she got loose I would have a chance of finding her. Let’s be realistic - nothing keeps your dog safer than a leash and an attentive owner. But mistakes happen and this seems to be a good safety net. I saw some complaints about the attachment system. Here’s what I’ve learned - 1. only try to attach to one thickness of your dog’s collar. If your dog’s collar has two laps of cloth, slip the attachment under only the top layer. Otherwise the attachment will seem ok but will fall off easily. If you get it properly attached it stays securely. 2. Figure out how to position the attachment device and the tracker first, before you start wresting with your dog. Or take the collar off so you can work more easily. It seems like the attachment clip and the tracker have to be positioned exactly so, and then when you hear a little click it is on securely. 3. I haven’t used it in live mode much, but even in the regular mode it seems pretty darn accurate. And probably the battery lasts longer, although we are still recharging it nightly.
