Our furry friends can bring us the most joy in life, but equally leave you running around in your dressing gown with a torch and bag of treats at 3 am when they go missing. If your dog escapes they don’t think about the worry and panic they cause you, but simply see it as an opportunity to run around like a loon and sniff everything within a 2-mile radius.
It is estimated that 1 in 10 dog owners have experience of their dog going missing, either from running away or being stolen, throw cats into the mix and it has been estimated that over 500,000 cats and dogs go missing every year in the UK alone. With microchipping there is more of a chance of being reunited with your fur baby but that’s only if someone finds them and gets them scanned, the Pod 3 GPS tracker is a great way of seeing where our pets are at all times.
The UK Pet Register reports 1 in 3 pets will go missing in it's lifetime and many pet owners can relate to the fear and anguish that come with their furry friend going for a walkabout. The Pod 2 promises to be the world's smallest, lightest pet GPS tracker and activity monitor on the market designed to fit on your pet's collar, track it's activity and give you it's location on demand. The Pod is a cylindrical shape with no corners, making it really comfortable for your pet to wear.
As technology is increasingly finding its way to improve every aspect of our lives, it isn’t surprising that people are turning to it to keep their loved ones safe. I’m not talking about those small screaming humans that always seem to be sat near me when I go for lunch (I must stop having lunch with my sister and her 3year old) but the four-legged barking kind.
I can look back and laugh now about how ridiculous my partner and I were the first time our cat didn’t come home when called. We have two boys who have always been reliable at coming home when we whistle, but on the day that is now known as No Finley Friday I remember me, my partner and the other cat running up and down the road trying to locate the fourth member of our little family. Four hours later, of course, he strolled in like nothing had happened, much to our frustration and relief.
