Looking for a gift for a dog parent in your life? Or maybe some stocking stuffers for your own special pup? Here are some of Your Dog’s Friend’s favorite things…

Tagg GPS Collar Attachment


What is it?

A device that attaches to any standard collar. Tagg GPS Pet Tracker will alert you via text message if your dog escapes the “Home Zone” and allow you to track your dog’s location via a mobile app.

How much does it cost?

$99, plus $10/mo membership fee

Is it worth it?

If your dog is fearful of strangers or an escape artist, YES! If your dog escapes, you will be able to activate the tracking mode and find him yourself, rather than spending $100 per HOUR on a professional tracker, plus the time, supplies, and heartache involved in a search.

What size dog is it for?

The device fits on any standard collar and is fairly lightweight, but from personal experience, our staff does not recommend it on dogs smaller than 20 lbs. GPS units, like other pieces of tech, are getting smaller and smaller, so we hope that future versions of Tagg will be better suited for our small dog friends.

Is this a good gift for a rescue organization that I support?

YES!! Rescues frequently have foster dogs that are flight risks. They would love to have a few Tagg GPS Pet Trackers that they can lend to foster families.
