    Microchip is essential IMO, but I'm not sure about the GPS… has anyone done this? @TyTysmom ?!!

    I didn't know they had GPS chips! I would go that route for sure if it were me. I've seen collars and tags that have GPS, but never chip that are implanted. That's pretty awesome. Do you know the name by chance?

    Wow never heard of this. My concern however is that gps to be traceable will need to have a battery same as LoJack. Not sure if that is a good thing to have implanted on a live animal.

    I went to see the vet that's going to spayed Nyala so I can extend to date. I will be babysitting my son's 2 dogs for a week falls same time as Nyala's surgery. I spoke to him about this gps chip. He will look into it as he said he has horses and would love gps them. He also said he knows of a vet in Ontario that started to do this gps. He will give him a call to see if it's a go or not. If it is legit I rather wait for Nyala's surgery so she spayed n chipped same time. If this company went belly up, for sure not going to bother with them. And yes the battery issue not good. On the other hand my aromatherapy lady had her cat gps in Ontario. I will ask her about it. Doesn't seem to have batteries the way she was talking. Works with an app. I will let you guys know for sure. Man wouldn't that be the best thing to have in your bully. Whoever wants to steal your dog is basically cooked. Lol. Like an "On Star" cool

    Castor has a microchip but I've never heard of gps chips. As long as they aren't harmful it sounds like a good idea.

    I read some time ago that hunters here in Sweden use gps (collars) to keep track of their dogs and there were problems because one system, which was imported from the US (where it was perfectly legal), happened to use the same frequency as the Swedish military systems. Apparently, dogs could block out the military communications systems which of course would be a very serious problem.

    I also sent a message to my brother in law as he lives in UK. Want to see if it is a legit company.

    Nyala's surgery has been moved to the 18th of march....
