The World’s First Dog GPS Collar Without Fees #NuzzleSmartCollar

Nuzzle GPS Collar for Pets

disclaimer

“My dog is lost.”

These are the words no pet parent wants to say or experience. A pet parent’s worst nightmare, next to having their pet pass away, is having their pet go missing. Over the years, countless numbers of products to help reunite lost pets have crossed our desk. We always recommend your dog have a name tag on with current information and be microchipped. However, nothing can give a pet parent peace of mind when their pet is missing other than a GPS collar. Like your vehicle, a GPS collar on your dog works on the same principle: being able to accurately pinpoint where you are at any given time.

Any GPS collar we’ve encountered to date has a monthly data fee associated with it.

Until now. We recently discovered a fantastic Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to bring the Nuzzle Smart GPS Collar® for Dogs and Cats to fruition. If you’ve always wanted a smart collar for your dog but dreaded the notion of a fee every month, raise your paws in the air in celebration: The Nuzzle is changing all that.

Nuzzle GPS Collar for Pets

Here’s the scoop:

  • If your pet ever decides to wander off, you’ll always be able to find them with their collar’s GPS and cellular connectivity. No one wants their dog to go missing, but should that happen: This is the type of product that you thank your lucky stars you purchased.
  • If your pet is alone all day while you work or if you run errands and leave Fido alone, the Nuzzle Smart GPS Collar tells you what your dog is doing when you’re not there. Using the accompanying app, you can check-in from anywhere and see what your dog has been up to.
  • The GPS tracker is lightweight, waterproof, durable, and with no monthly fee. So if your dog bolts away and is out in the rain or the unit gets wet, you are covered.

Why Fidose of Reality Loves the Nuzzle

  • You don’t have to wait for someone to find your dog and hope they get in touch with you or heaven forbid, keeps your dog.
  • There is no monthly fee.
  • The GPS is waterproof.
  • The collar has impact detection – the folks at Nuzzle will notify you if the collar has been hit hard. This means either your dog is playing rough, or may have gotten into an accident.
  • The Nuzzle has temperature monitoring. Winter is coming and I want to be sure my dog is not outdoors too long but that he is getting enough exercise. The collar will detect temperature – if you dog isoutside too long in the cold, you’ll know!
  • You aren’t married to the collar that comes with the Nuzzle GPS tracker: The Nuzzle tracker can be detached and reattached to your personal collars and harnesses.
  • Long battery experience: The Nuzzle battery is removable from the collar (the black portion pops right out) so you can charge it and leave your collar on your pet. Additionally, Nuzzle is
    providing an additional battery with each Nuzzle collar purchase. So your dog’s collar is never left uncharged.
  • If you are trying to help your dog lose some weight, you can track where your dog’s walks along with the distance they’ve covered.

How Many Dogs Really Go Missing

Over the past 10 years or so, my spouse and I have helped reunited at least a dozen lost dogs with their frantic families.  The dogs seem to find their way to our house. If a dog goes missing, my wife and I like to joke that they find their way to us to help reunite them. It wasn’t always an easy capture, though. And these dog would have been reunited with their frantic family members had they been wearing the Nuzzle.

Years ago, a study was conducted and I will never forget the results, as they were spine tingling (and they still are). Only 6 percent of dog owners and 2 percent of cat owners found their lost pets at shelters.

Comments

    • I know, right? A neighbor of ours had a dog go missing and never found. I can only imagine how many lives this will save.

  1. Given that this product isn’t even commercially produced yet it isn’t something I’d get for my dogs. I think the idea of GPS tracking for pets has great potential but find it hard to believe that they will continue to provide the product with no monthly cellular fee in perpetuity. They don’t identify the cellular carrier and I would imagine, as with cell phone carriers, that coverage and signal strength vary widely by area and by carrier. In my area ATT has great coverage and very few areas where there is no signal but Verizon doesn’t. Where my sister is Verizon is the stronger carrier. I’d also be interested to know if there are any RF or safety issues with the device on the neck of the dogs 24/7. I know health concerns have been raised about cell phone use and radiation issues. I guess I would also have concerns about privacy within the app and how much of the information is shared with their health insurance partner. Will there be constant ads within the app to buy the health insurance?

    • Hi Kathie – You are welcome to ask them – just head on over toe their website, which is http://hellonuzzle.com/
      As someone who is heavily ensconced in pet rescue and has recovered over a dozen lost dogs, I will definitely be using this. If it saves one life, it is worth it for us.
      As with any product with GPS, there might be questions and you can absolutely ask the manufacturer.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What a fantastic product! I love the idea of a GPS collar, and one that is waterproof and has no monthly fee is even better. I’d really like to get one of these. It’s amazing how many lost pets are found by people who don’t bother trying to find the owner because they want to keep the dog they’ve found! So despicable. Thanks for this great review Carol!

    • Thanks for chiming in, as you are a valued resource in the pet world, Cathy. We are excited to get one of these for our dog – it’s best to be on the safe side.

  3. I would definitely want one for my cat because sometimes he takes off for days (leaving me worried). I really love that there are no monthly fees.

  4. These look and sound amazing! I think its a great idea for pet owners that have pets who run off and sometimes don’t always find there way back home.

  5. This product seems wonderful. It is so easy for a pet to wander off and get lost. It is great to have a product that enables you to find a lost family member and bring her back home to safety.
