Spotlight Gps Pet Locator Will Make Lost Pet Posters Obsolete

Positioning Animals Worldwide, Inc. (PAW) and the American Kennel Club will soon be offering a high-tech way of keeping track of your pet dogs. The service is called SpotLight, and it combines Assisted GPS technology along with round-the-clock service to ensure that pet owners can track  – and recover – their pet as easily as possible. If Bolt had this on him, his movie would have been over in 5 minutes.

To start using SpotLight, users will purchase a tracking device along with a service plan (price TBA). The tracking device is rechargeable, durable and waterproof. PAW says that the device can last up to 10 days between charges. Aside from tracking a dog’s location, the device also has a LED beacon that’s visible from over 100 yards; customers can activate the beacon through text message to make night-time searching easier.

To ensure that the service won’t nag or annoy people with endless updates of their dog’s whereabouts, customers will define “Safe Spots”, or the home areas of their pet. The tracking device will only actively alert customers (via text message or email) when their dog leaves its Safe Spot. Customers then have the option to track and search on their own or call on SpotLight’s recovery team for help.

Of course, none of these will be able to help you if the gadget becomes separated from your dog. Perhaps someday we’ll be able to inject fool-proof nanotrackers in our pets. Check out SpotLight’s website for more details.
