    I'm not really up to date with the new tech, but would like to pin my foster dogs with GPS to see where they are running off to.

    Its sad- even our cats stay on our property.
    Yet the dogs go to Tim buck two.
    If my inside/outside cat isn't within sight of the house I know she's next door saying hi to my niece and killing bugs.

    Anyway, I don't have much to spend on it- but it would be great to have.

    Would be cool if I would get an alert when they went past a certain point.

    They run so fast that I look out the door and they're too far away to hear my call if I don't catch them as they hit the mailbox ;-;

    Anyway thanks for reading!

    There are a couple of ways to do this, you can use a 'GPS logger' to store a track of where the dog has been, this can only be examined when the dog returns (by connecting the logger to a computer), or you can get a 'pet / child tracker', this is similar to the logger but also has a cell phone built-in, you can call it for a current location or log into a website that is in contact with the tracker to see history track and current position, you can also set a 'zone' on a map and get the tracker to message you if the dog goes outside this area

    The problem is that the batteries in a tracker won't last very long, so you would have to know when to activate it
