When Ted Carson, of the Calvert K9 Search and Rescue Team in St. Leonard, Md., embarks on a training or actual mission, he uses Tagg the Pet Tracker, a GPS and activity-monitoring device, to help ensure the safety of his human and canine team members.

 It’s easy to lose line of sight, and not knowing where the dogs are can create handler anxiety, especially in heavy forested and thick brush areas when on missing persons cases or during dangerous operations.

Originally designed for pet owners, Tagg gives these first responders, U.S. military personnel, law enforcement, emergency management officials, and other government employees peace of mind that their dog can always be located 24/7 via web and mobile applications by setting a designed Tagg Zone that gives alerts if the pet being monitored leaves the area.

Tagg is a small device that is attached to the dog’s collar and monitors and tracks the animal’s activity levels and whereabouts. Tagg sends daily reports to your online portal and smart phone app. 

“Tagg is a huge added safety factor for our handlers,” Carson says. “While we’re out practicing or on a mission, we can easily lose our line of site…Tagg gives us reassurance that we’ll always have our dogs’ locations at our fingertips.”

Tagg the Pet Tracker had added a new temperature monitoring feature and complementary software update, allowing allowing pet owners to be even more in tune with their pet and its day-to-day environment. This is especially important for police and Search & Rescue dogs.
