The GPS/GSM Dog Collar
My dog Cisco had a bad habit of bolting for it whenever he saw the front door or rear gate opened. This once resulted in my (then 400-pound) father chasing him in the pouring rain down to the canal, waiting for him to stop and subsequently tripping and tackling the dog in a large blaze of glory (and mud), knocking wind out of both dog and man. Thirty minutes before his flight was to leave. Ever since that sordid afternoon, I’ve wondered where Cisco would go if he had free reign and moreover, exactly how long it’d take for him to get killed on the nearby major streets. Now, the GPS PRO Dog collar will let me explore these possibilities with dogs and toddlers alike. Using a SIM card linked to an active GSM account, the location of your dog (or wayward baby) is just a text message away. Call the collar and seconds later, the coordinates are texted back to you. It will run you roughly $1,100, but aren’t the possibilities it presents worth it?
