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.

It’s great but there’s room for improvement

I’ve been using a tracker for one of my cats for a month now and it works fine for the most part. The design and materials used for the collar are sturdy enough although wigs other similar objects can scratch it easily. I have two issues the first being location history and overall accuracy. Now I understand this could be dependent on the country and location but sometimes there are spots on the heatmap that are way off not just a few meters but like the other side of the city. I know there’s no way my cat had been there since he doesn’t even leave the street he rarely wanders and the next minute it shows he’s back in the garden. Maybe the connection is weak or the tower has issues but fortunately real time tracking works fine.

The other problem I had is the fact that I already had to ask for a replacement tracker. Unfortunately the collar or my cat got caught in something and instead of breaking away at the breakaway strip it came apart between the battery and the tracker so of course I couldn’t find it even though I spent half a day searching the last known location. So yes it does what it says and I like the activity monitoring feature but there definitely things that could be worked on.
