I didn't want to thread jack dustybirds thread, so I thought I would start this one

This is an amazing techno advance for people with pets.
With this, one day we will never have to see "lost dog/cat" posts again!!

I can't wait till we look back at these and laugh at how huge they were...:D

It's a great idea, but it's so big.:o

With huge newfs you have now, who'd notice! :D

There are actually a few different companies that make them, the ones for the hunting dogs are smaller.

Heres one.

Yeah, that one's smaller, but more sticky outy. Maybe one day, we'll have a microchip that's also a gps device.:fingerscr ;)

what happens if the battery wears out :eek: It probably gives you some kind of low battery warning (heck if it finds your dog, it better tell you the battery is low!)

There's probably an adaptor thingy, so you just plug your dog into the wall and make him stay there.:laughing:

Can't wait for it to be incorporated into a microchip! Soon folks, soon.

Oh, I actually posted about this last summer! I'll have to see if I can find my old thread. I was doing research on it and found a few possible companies. I ended up not getting it as of yet, but still keeping my eye on it! I'm hoping for the microchip technology too since my biggest concern is that Petey would just slip the collar anyway, as he is prone to do! It was pretty expensive too. So hopefully it will also come down in cost as it becomes more known too! :)
