[Amazon.ca] Tractive Dog GPS, $45.78 plus subscription, $12/month to month or $8 month (pay for the year).

Tractive Dog GPS. Lowest price I have seen on Amazon. You will need to subscribe to use it, about $12 month to month, or about $8/month if you pay up front for a year. Great deal if you have a runner!

Tractive connects to AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Viaero Wireless USA.
Who is the provider you connect to in Canada?

Not many options if you want GPS. I think it is the least expensive option now. Maybe get a bigger dog?!!!!!

My dog is currently 30lbs at 4.5 months and will likely be in the 40-50lb range. I have no issues with the pricing, just seems like a really big device that might annoy her to have on her collar. Maybe when she's fully grown I'll re-evaluate and see if it wouldn't seem massive on her.

My dog is 55 pounds, it won't be on all the time, only when we are hiking, at a cottage rental etc.., I'm actually more interested on putting it on my cat to see what he is up to for the day.

I think that is Bluetooth crowdsourcing. Good idea, but It won't help if you lost your dog 5 minutes ago in the woods and you need to find it immediately.

It’s nowhere near the same, but we’ve put an AirTag on our dog. I feel if he runs, with the sheer number of people who own iDevices, I’ll have a rough estimate of where he is to narrow the search.

However, this GPS is great for the outdoor, and good price imo (plus, doesn’t seem THAT big)..

We're presently doing this however it nowhere near the same thing by any stretch. There are no live updates (minutes between updates) with AirTags so it's only ever going to get you a rough idea of the location you need to be and you're always going to be a step behind. In areas that are not densely populated you're going to get much less (if any) assistance. Having said that I do think it is still better than nothing at all, hence why we used the last 1 from our 4 pack to slap on our puppy. The idea of a genuine GPS tracker when we're at the cottage, on hikes, etc. is quite appealing. I may just go for it and give it a test.

Would this be good to hide it within bike tube for preventive theft measures? A lot of bike thieves these days...

I doubt it will work in a tube that contains metal

My 12 pound cat had one for 3 years.

It's ok.

It work well and was a stress saver for me (outdoor cat with an ADHD personality).

I had an expensive trial of TELUS Track+ when the bloody beagle lost it on his first outing in the forest with it. I am on the hook for $5 x 24 months. TELUS also discontinued the service too.

We have the older 3G version, and it works well. The device is light, so it wouldn't be an issue for most dogs. The live tracking can be hit and miss, but it usually locks on within 3 minutes of activating. Battery life is good if you aren't live tracking (can get 36 hours of use).

Remember this will only work where the device can access cellular service - not a great option out in the woods, etc.

The company also does Black Friday deals - last year they had this device for $39.

That's actually a good use case for an airtag. Your bike isn't going to get stolen and end up in the woods, it'll end up near people - and likely people with iPhones.
