Garmin Astro 320

GPS Dog Collars allow you to keep track of your wandering hound even when it is out of sight!

This is done by means of a Collar that transmits its exact GPS location which is picked up by a hand-held receiver.

There are even products that are light and small enough for use with cats too!

Often used by the hunting fraternity they are also proving popular with dog owners who like to allow their dogs the freedom to roam but also like to know exactly where they are at any particular time.
