Remember Pepsi the runaway?

Postby Jen » Sat Aug 01, 2015 11:46 pm

My cousin's dog ran away a few days after she brought him home last year, and when she got him back, she bought him a GPS collar.

Well, he was left at a friend's house while she and friend went out. Friend's kids let him into their supposedly secure yard (the pictures make it look quite secure - 6' concrete wall perimeter) to pee, and he found a way out. My cousin got an alert on her phone that he had breached the perimeter, and they were able to head home as soon as it happened. The collar alerts showed that he was basically running in circles around the neighborhood, so she sat down on a corner with treats and waited for him to pass her.

He saw her before he went past her and went to hide under a truck. She kept tossing treats at him under the truck and after about five minutes he let himself be caught. :thumbup:

The collar definitely just paid for itself!

I remember how scary and stressful his first run off was, and I'm so glad your cousin didn't have to go through that again! GPS collars are tech brilliance. :thumbup:

So glad that GPS collar worked! I have one on order and I thought it was supposed to get here this spring or summer. I'll have to look into that...

I'm so glad she got that! So great that she was able to get him back so quickly this time.

Wow, that collar is just what Pepsi and your cousin need. I'm glad Pepsi was wearing it at the time so he was easily located!
