I use to have a dog that loved freedom. Whenever we let her outside, she would run everywhere and get into anything. A little embarrassing when she barked at our neighbors. My dog never left to far from home, but if you have a problem with your dog roaming a little to far from home, and gets lost at days at a time, then this might be the doggy product for you.
On4 Communications is planning to release a cell phone for dogs. The PetsCell is a two-way, waterproof communication device with GPS. The phone allows owners to speak directly with anyone who finds their pet, and owners can track their pet’s location in real-time through a PC or hand-held device. Owners also can set an invisible fence or “geo-fence” boundary and are notified via e-mail when the pet steps out of the virtual perimeter.
