10-Time Award-Winning GPS Pet Tracker
Tagg GPS Pet Tracker is the nation's leader in GPS Pet Tracking Technology. Not to be confused with the common microchip, Tagg uses advanced GPS and the nation's largest wireless network to help you to find your pet anytime and anywhere. Additionally, Tagg can track your pet's activity levels. Give you and your beloved pet the safety and security you both deserve.
Don't Let Your Pet Become a Statistic
“More than 10 million pets are lost each year”- ASPCA. A microchip is simply NOT enough. Tagg gives you the power of GPS to locate your pet at any time. A microchip does not alert you if your pet is lost, or show you their location, but Tagg does. A microchip requires your pet to be brought to a facility for scanning and will likely cost you a recovery fee. Tagg keeps America's pets safe by actively monitoring their safety more than a million times a day. Tagg puts you in control.

The Tagg GPS Pet Tracker App for iPhone and Android smartphones is a convenient way to stay in touch with your pet.

A few months ago, my Simba (a Shiba Inu) managed to get himself off-leash to chase a rabbit while I was walking him. He ended up in a juggle with full of woods and long grasses. He did not come back home that night. My wife did not get any sleep that night. Obviously she blamed all these to me, and I even heard divorce (I know...it sounds crazy). To make the story short, I was able to get him back from the woods the next morning after 2 hours of tree by tree searching. From this experience, I have been looking for a GPS tracking device for Simba. I want something small and light, and work with iPhone app. Nothing on the market comes close to what I was looking, until I found Tagg. Immediately I knew that this is what I have been looking for.
The product works perfect. It is very light and compact, and has a long battery life up to 30 days. You can attach it to the collar, and won't affect the dog's mobility (He is about 22 LB). With this product attached to him, I have released Simba to the woods in my backyard a few times for testing. I was able to know exactly where he was, and I could track him down if I needed to. The accuracy of tracking is amazing: within a circle of 3 yards. One time, the tracking device got lost while Simba was running in the woods. I was able to track down and find the device very easily.
So why did not I give a 5 star rating for this product? Here are a few things that you might need to be aware:
The tracking is static, not continue like a GPS navigation system. You have to activate it by pressing "Locate" in the App. It takes about 1-2 min to locate the device on the map. If your dog is running, you won't be able to see him moving on the map. Essentially, the GPS tracking function is performed on demand. While this is a drawback, but it is also probably the reason why it can have such a long battery life on such a small device. I think they can improve the product by adding a continue tracking mode.
What I dislike most about the product is its pricing scheme. The product kit (hardware) itself costs $98 from Amazon, very reasonable. But you have to pay additional $7.99 monthly service fee (Note that first 3-month is free) to use it. What comes with the service charge is email, text message notifications. You define a perimeter around your house when you setup the device. Every time when the dog goes out of the range, you will get a notification. While this is a nice service/feature to have, I don't find it is something I would pay $7.99 a month for. For a dog to get lost is an accident. It would not happen more than a few times a year. I would not want to pay a monthly fee for a few times of use each year. In fact, I would be willing to pay one time price of $200 for this product to avoid a monthly service fee.
I called their customer service about this month service charge. I was told that once the service is activated, I cannot deactivate the service. Otherwise, I would have to buy a new unit to activate the service again. In other words, to keep the device functioning, I need to have the service on all the time. If I deactivate the device after one year of use for example, I won't be able to use this device again by reactivating the service. This is totally crazy!!!
I am now on the fence as whether to keep it or return it. I hope the company will seriously consider changing the pricing scheme. I could see that they would lose a lot of customers with the current pricing strategy.
This Tagg unit is smaller than Garmin. The design is nice looking and more hidden than Garmin while it's attached to the collar. So this Tagg is better for small pets such as cats or tiny breed dogs. What I don't like about the Tagg mounting is that it can snap off the collar if there is pulling on the latch, so I'm afraid I may lose it someday. The Garmin is in a secure fabric pouch but it's larger. If you have a tiny pet then this Tagg tracker is better.
The Tagg tracker communicates with the base unit to determine when the pet is close to home, unlike the Garmin which always uses GPS. Because the Tagg doesn't have to activate its GPS unless it is outside the home zone, the Tagg has better battery life. My Garmin lasts about 5 days before the battery runs out so I frequently have to take it out of the pouch to charge it. I haven't used the Tagg long enough to know how long the battery lasts, but after several days the indicator still shows full charge.
I like the actual tracking of the Garmin much better, however. When I want to know precisely where my pet is and the history of its tracks, I can see all the location updates on the map and it is really interesting to see where the pet has roamed the neighborhood when it escapes. The Garmin web and iPhone software is nicer and has more features than the Tagg software. The Tagg tracking history feature is pretty weak in comparison because it will only save a little bit of history only when you click the button, whereas Garmin keeps the track history all the time. Garmin has smoother email notifications -- when I use the Tagg email notifications sometimes I get repeating emails with the exact same info. I prefer the Garmin web tracking map; it can be expanded to large size, but the Tagg web map cannot be resized.
The Tagg tracker is limited to a circular home zone, while the Garmin can use an irregular user-defined geofence. The Garmin is better if you have a large property that has a rectangular or odd shape (not circular or square).
If you have a tiny pet and just want to know it's safe or when to chase after it, and want long battery life, then I recommend this Tagg tracker.
If you have a larger pet and you want precision track history to know exactly which neighbor is secretly feeding it yummier food, and don't mind having to charge more frequently, then I recommend the Garmin GTU 10 instead.
