Snooper helps find your lost dog

by James

On Christmas Day, I had a dog disappear on us, prompting me to spend most of my holiday putting up “have you seen this dog?” notices all over the neighborhood. Notices which did absolutely no good whatsoever (the woman who found him called the number on his tag two days later). After he left us to go to that great puppy farm in the sky, we got another dog who proved to be every bit the escape artist as his predecessor. So, believe me when I tell you that a small GPS tag like the SNOOPER PET TRACKER GPSS is of great interest to me and every other dog owner who’s spent many a late night driving around neighborhoods whistling like a crazy person.

The Snooper uses global positioning satellites (GPS) in concert with GPRS and GSM technology to locate the precise position of your pet within about 2 ½ yards any time of the day or night. The GRS and GSM features also allow you to use your cell phone (with the Google maps application installed) as a locator to find Fido as well. All you need to do is call Snooper’s phone number and it will send you a text message with the GPS coordinates via SMS text message. And the best part is … no monthly fees! Snooper’s built in rechargeable battery provides up to 15 hours of continuous monitoring and runs a hefty $279 USD. Then again, that’s a bargain if it finds Fido on Christmas morning.

useless unless you want to keep charging the thing 2 times a day. you also would have to take it on and off the pet just as often.

This gadget would have been more useful if it didn’t have such a short battery life.

I think this gadget is more useful in tracking down spouses who are having marital affairs. hehe

This is exactly the type of device I came to this section of the web site to find.

At present, my cat is pretty good about staying around our property but should she ever decide to start wandering, I would purchase this in a heartbeat. If I were to find her straying too far, I would turn her into an indoor cat whether she liked it or not.

I agree with the above posters but that is the state-of-the-art right now. I would put up with the inconvenience, though, because my cat means so much to me.
