10 Best Dog and Cat GPS Trackers in 2022

WHY WE LIKE IT: This Garmin tracker is built for dogs and cats who spend time in the great outdoors, making this heavy-duty unit a contender as the best dog tracker for hiking, camping, hunting, and the like. Its durable build is pressure-resistant, shockproof, and designed to withstand foul weather.

Pros

  • High-sensitivity GPS technology
  • Withstands pressures up to 1 ATM
  • Includes extended range antenna

Cons

  • Heavy 9.3-ounces with collar

For the adventurous canine, the rugged Garmin T 5 Dog and Cat Tracking Device is water-resistant to 10 meters and shockproof, with an extremely durable build. Garmin uses a high-sensitivity GPS/GLONASS receiver that provides a tracking range of nine miles. It comes with two antennas, one for standard range and a longer one for extended range. This isn’t unlimited range, but it is still especially useful when traveling through the woods.

Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery is replaceable and lasts up to 40 hours on one charge. Recharge easily via the tracker’s USB interface. The tracker has built-in LED beacon lights that you can activate and control remotely. These lights are very powerful and offer high-visibility up to 100 yards away, making it super easy to keep aware of your pets location, even at night. The tracker also has a Rescue Mode that you can activate remotely in case there is an emergency.

WHY WE LIKE IT: Tractive provides a smartly designed, reliable GPS tracker with the most important tracking and safety features at a fantastic price point. Its real-time tracking speed is especially impressive, even compared to more expensive models.

Pros

  • Live location updates every two seconds
  • IPX7 waterproof and shock-resistant
  • Secure, adjustable collar clasp

Cons

  • Uses less efficient lithium polymer battery

Tractive has thrown-out the idea that GPS technology has to be very expensive. Its GPS dog tracker offers live tracking, location history, activity monitoring, and more at a fantastic price point. While it may be our budget option, Tractive’s tracker has surprisingly fast real-time tracking performance, with updates on your dog’s location in as quick as every two to three seconds. Tractive also stores your dog’s location history and has a heatmap view that provides more insight into where your dog spends its time over the course of the day.

Additional safety features include the ability to create virtual fences around your home or another location of your choice. You’ll get alerted if your dog ever leaves those areas. The device itself is powered by a lithium-polymer battery that can last up to five days and charges in as little as two hours. Its compact design measures under 3” and attaches to your dog with a secure, adjustable clasp.
