Their innovative solution was the Pinder Pet Finder, a smart collar that reunites lost dogs with their families.

Walk and/or drive through your neighborhood several times every day. Early morning and sunset are prime time frames for finding lost pets. Speak with neighbors, postal carriers, garbage collectors, etc and ask that they keep an eye out for your pet. Radio collars are considered the "older" technology, but they've been improved. No longer do they all have antennas on the dog's collar (although many long-range ones designed for hunting dogs still do), but you still must be within a certain range to detect your dog. As long as you're within range (which could mean driving around until you get a signal), it takes only about a second to transmit your dog's location. Radio might not find your pet indoors, unless it's penetrating radio frequencies, which is used by one collar we looked into.If Buster likes to run away fairly often, perhaps a GPS device for pets like the Global Pet Finder is something you should invest in. After fastening it to your dog's collar, you can go onto their website and define a safe area in which your dog can roam freely without triggering an alert. If your dog leaves the safe area, you will be immediately notified via cell or computer and continue to receive his coordinates as he moves around. At $349 for the device plus a $17.99-$19.98 monthly subscription plan, the Global Pet Finder is far from cheap, but it's hard to place a price on your peace of mind.Dynotag is far from being the best dog GPS collar, but it's definitely the cheapest and most user-friendly option you can get for monitoring your pet and occasionally being able to find out where he or she is located. How will you find your way to your pet? Most radio collars lead you there by signal strength. Most GPS collars lead you there by a map. Some GPS collars just show where the is on the map, which is not much help if you don't know how to get there. Others give you directions.New pet location and tracking devices are coming out all the time. Check back often as we regularly update this column!
