Soon, a sat-nav collar to track down your missing pooches!March 7th, 2008 - 2:08 pm ICT by admin
London, March 7 (ANI): Soon, dog owners will be able to hunt down their missing pet pooches, thanks to a high-tech dog collar based on sat-nav technology.
The lockable collar, which was previewed on the first day of the Crufts Show, is made of anti-cut material to thwart thieves and can trace an animal even if it inside a building.
The device works by sending texts to the owners mobile telephone if the dog crosses a fixed boundary.
After receiving the text message, the owner can log on to a website where, using the sat-nav technology of the collar, they can locate the pets position.
Makers Retrieva say that the collar is due to go on sale in July costing about 200 pounds, plus a monthly fee.
Dog theft is out there but its not high on the list of police priorities, for obvious reasons. But for owners or families, if a dog gets lost it is a traumatic experience, Times Online quoted Andrew Stuart, the companys director, as saying. (ANI)
