EZ Pet Finder Saved Tortoise!
on September 20, 2011
I ordered this product for my tortoise. Even though I had placed every barricade imaginable in the yard, he was managing to escape by climbing under and over anything in his way. The EZ Pet Finder was perfect--I tied and taped it to his shell and it was then much easier for me to check on his whereabouts. The only negative is the range of the signal. I suppose in an empty field the signal would carry much further, but in an average yard with plantings, trees, fence, it's only about 8-10 feet. Nonetheless, the tortoise managed to escape the yard once again. I looked for him for two days, pressing the EZ Pet Finder as I walked around block. I resigned myself to the fact that he was gone for good, but as a last ditch effort, decided to cross the street and Eureka! I heard the beeping sound of the pet finder at last!
Moral of my story: The EZ Pet Finder is not a substitute pet sitter. But if it weren't for this device, my tortoise would not have survived our Wisconsin winters, so it saved his life. (He is now confined to house arrest.)
