Question Anyone heard of the TAGG The Pet Tracker GPS?

Here's our story we had a great trip as usual, but it was time for us to get back to the real world. We had the coach all packed up and ready to go home. I went out to do a departure walk around the coach and I let our Rat Terrier Joey out (without a leash) because he never takes off and I thought I would let him take another quick potty before we headed home.

Anyway, this is where the story turns bad! Next thing I know he must have saw some critter and took off running! I called after him and called after him he didn't return. So I told the wife and we both went walking in the direction I saw him run off in. We walked and called for a good hour or more and nothing. My wife was so upset and that just made it worse on me. We were a terrible mess because Joey is our traveling pal. We waited for another hour and he still hadn't returned. We ended up staying another night because we hoped he would return by morning. Of course the wife didn't get any sleep, she was so worried she tossed and turned all night and with her tossing and turning all night made it a horrible restless night for the both of us! All over darn Joey running off! He's never done that to use before so I was really shocked.

If you guess he returned the next morning, you guessed right! He was wet, dirty and looked wore out! We gave him a bath and got ready to check out again. This time I didn't worry about letting him go out for a potty before we started our trip back home. And if I had I would make sure this time to have him on his leash. After his bath he was passed out on his dog bed and slept the whole trip back home! We never did sit down and discuss with him, his bad choice of running off and making us worry all night long! We have had to many of those talks when our children were teenagers. I don't want to relive those memories...

I did some searching and found this TAGG The Pet Tracker GPS Advanced Dog GPS Tracking Systems | Tagg the Pet Tracker
and wondered if any others have heard of it or use it? They said it works for cats too. It text messages you if your pet leaves an area you have set up. Or you can go online and it will show you exactly where your pet is. It looks like are really good system.

I would really like to know what others opinions are on it. If there is something better you know about please tell us. My brother had the nerve to tell me to just leave Joey at home next time and have him go to a kennel. Joey is apart of our family so that won't be happening! We just want a piece of mind when we take our next trip.

Wheeler, that TAGG Pet Tracker sounds like a dynamite product. The manufacturer is the same company who makes the Qualcomm mobilizing trackers and message

center data technologies used on thousands of semi-trucks around the country. I'm sure the product works really well and I would consider trying one out on our

youngest girl Jack Russell. Sorry to hear about your trouble with your dog. I don't think you are the only ones whom have found themselves it a similar situation. My older

Jack, was a problem for the first three years, now he is 8 human years and 52 dog years. Actually we just celebrated his birthday the other day with party hats, custard

ice cream cake and the whole nine yards. He was a pretty happy boy. It was like he knew his birthday was near for half the week...

The Tagg pet tracker is the only one of it's kind on the market that I know of. I think it's a great recommendation for those who travel with a pet. If you are concerned with him Joey running off and need to track him this tacker will keep you one step ahead of him to go right to where he is.

Looking through ads in our Sunday paper, saw this for $79.99, $20.00 off at Staples. That was easy.

It wasn't a coupon, just part of their weekly ad. Looks like their ads are based on location so they won't be the same everywhere. Hopefully I didn't steer everyone wrong with a price good only in Boise Idaho. Try going to Huntington Park Staples Weekly Ad, on page 4 here.
