Introducing the most innovative GPS tracking device for pets – the SpotLight GPS Pet Locator. This Locator uses the latest GPS technology and Google Maps to pinpoint your pet’s location, speed, and direction.


Why Do You Need A GPS Locator For Your Dog?

There are many situations when having a GPS locator comes in handy. The most obvious is when your dog becomes lost or runs out of sight. Other situations include taking a walk at night and loosing sight of your dog and being able to track your dog when you are out of town. The SpotLight GPS Pet Locator is immediately able to pinpoint the location of your dog and help guide you to him.



This pet gadget also allows you to set up safe zones and will email or text you when your dog travels beyond the zone. Set up zones around your home, the sitter’s home, the local parks, or anywhere else your dog spends time. You can even track your dog’s weekly activity with this Locator.


Technology At Work

GPS technology has advanced in the past few years. It has become faster and more accurate. The SpotLight GPS Locator has taken this technology and integrated it with Google Maps and SMS texting to become the most advanced and easy to use pet location product on the market. They have recently released an iPhone app for even more easy of use and immediate notification.


How It Works

After setting up the safe zones with the included computer software, attach the small device to your dog’s collar. This small black box-shaped device will not harm your dog or cause any irritation. There is a small, bright light on the SpotLight collar attachment that can be used to see him or her outside at night during a walk or letting the dog in the backyard.



As long as the collar attachment is around your dog’s neck, you can relax knowing your dog is safe. If your dog travels beyond the safe zones, you will instantly receive an email or text message (or app alert) letting you know. SpotLight is partnered with the AKC CAR program, which stands for Companion Animal Recovery, the nation’s largest not-for-profit pet ID and recovery service. The trained “spotters” are able to find and track your pet and guide you to it. You can call them to aid in your search or use the iPhone app and Google Maps. All of these features are available 24 hours a day everyday.


More Information

There are four additional lights on the device to indicate the status of different functions. It is similar to a computer modem.



The SpotLight GPS Pet Locator retails for $249.99. Think of it as an investment in the safety of your companion. The cost of loosing a pet is much more than this and the emotional loss is even higher.
