Dog-tracking technology has come a long way. Tractive® is one of the most established companies, featuring in TV shows such as Amazon’s The Pack. They specialise in creating innovative products that allow you to remain connected with and care for your pets. Their flagship product is their Tractive GPS dog collar that we have the pleasure of testing.

Based in Europe, Tractive has almost a decade of experience with dog trackers, and their latest model, offers a host of new features that they say make it ‘easier than ever’ to keep your pets safe.

Unlike other GPS trackers, the Tractive GPS tracker works in over 175 countries worldwide, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not it will work in your area.

The Tractive website explains that it is dedicated to helping pet owners strengthen the bond with their pets by leveraging technology to ensure a healthier, longer, and safer life.

All by providing the most intuitive and reliable application experience possible. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know.

Unboxing your Tracker and Setting it up

As with anything electronic, the first port of call will be to charge your tracker and ensure its battery is nice and full before attaching it to your pup.

the great thing is, whilst your Tractive GPS Tracker is charging, you can download and setup the app on your phone and setup couldn’t be simpler.

Download the app, set the permissions that you want i.e.

  • Alerts – such as when your dog leaves the virtual fencing area that you’ll set out or when the battery is low
  • Allowing access to your location

Both of which, you will ideally allow otherwise the tracker won’t be able to do its job correctly 🙂

You will then choose a plan and be guided through the remainder of your setup answering a few simple questions about your pooch:

  • Weight
  • Height
  • Breed
  • Name
  • Sex etc

And it’s as simple as that, you’re all setup and ready to go!

What Can you do With the Tractive GPS Dog 4?

Live Tracking of your Pooch

The company offers live GPS tracking through the app, which updates every two to three seconds so that dog owners have real-time tracking ensuring peace of mind.

Dog owners can customize alerts for different situations, such as when the dog leaves an area or returns home. The app also offers an activity map and the ability to set up training reminders.

Virtual GPS Dog Fencing

 Tractive provides dog owners with the ability to create safe zones in their home and outside their property. So the moment your dog leaves the perimeter of this virtual fence, Tractive will send a notification to your phone. Simple and extremely effective! Delivers peace of mind in abundance.

Monitor your Dogs Activity

Activity monitoring is a game-changer for dog owners. The Tractive GPS Dog 4 can track your dog’s activity – playing, resting, and calories– whether in the home or on the run.

Dog-friendly Design

Tractive GPS is designed to be a comfortable and safe fit for dogs of all sizes and breeds, including those with short and long hair.

The Tractive GPS tracker securely attaches to your dog’s collar or harness up to 2.8cm wide, while the water-resistant casing protects it from rain, snow and mud.

When you’re out in the great outdoors with your pup and lose sight of him or her, our unique audible alarm will help. 

Social

With the Tractive app, you can see how much exercise your dog is getting in comparison to other dogs. They have a world, regional, and local leaderboard.

Subscription Details

Tractive have a ‘One subscription. No limits.’

So what does this mean? It means your simcard can connect in over 175 countries world wide – at no extra cost.

The subscription currently comes in three forms:

  • Monthly – exactly what you’d expect, a rolling subscription (that’s slightly more expensive than the other other longer plan subs) charged monthly at £10 and can be cancelled anytime
  • Yearly – slightly more expensive up-front with a £60 cost but means a 50% saving because it equates to £5 per month
  • 2 years – An up front cost of £96 every 2 years but giving you a 60% saving over a monthly plan

Conclusion

Doggy Planet were sent a Tractive GPS to test and review and having lived with it for the last 3 months, we can honestly say that we love this GPS pet tracker and it’s our number 1 pick in our best dog trackers roundup.

We found the Tractive app extremely easy to setup with clear and familiar instructions. We are iPhone users, so you’ll be familiar with downloading the Tractive app from the app store if you to have an iPhone.

The user interface of the app is very intuitive and easy to both use and navigate, it’s simple without losing functionality or lacking anything.

The tracker and app worked exactly as they should. We tested the geo fencing intensively in both city and rural areas and the coverage worked wonderfully everywhere we tested it. The moment our pooches left the perimeter we were notified almost instantly every. Single. Time! Flawless and amazing peace of mind.

Other reviewers have claimed battery life is an issue, we can hand on heart state that this hasn’t been the case for us during our usage of the dog tracker.

Our only gripe is that you have to pay a subscription fee, we’d have preferred it to be synced to our iPhone and we’d happily have done without the social element, which could have meant no need for their own cloud server.

That’s just us though and we believe lots of our readers will love the social aspect that this great value for money tracker provides.
