Does anyone have a Tractive GPS?

I’ve recently bought one and am wondering about the active points? I can’t find a guide online with breed/age recommendations etc so have no idea what it should be?
Also wondering how people have found the virtual fence thing (I can’t make mine work properly)?
Thanks loads

Sorry to say I was bought one and found it to be useless.

The geofencing was unreliable. The signal outdoors was hit and miss and often very delayed. I just couldn't trust it to work when I needed it to so gave up sad

Not a feature I'm ever likely to use.
It is inaccurate indoors but we have some incredibly thick walls. So a bit hit and miss with the virtual fence.
Comes into its own when you have an ado dog with high prey drive and a remarkable ability to forget recall exists. In live mode and open countryside, it will get you close enough to hear her bell.

oh iv just bought one.

only used it twice and found it good when bambi appeared and my dog went deaf to me.

although after two uses I couldn't get it to switch on (despite 90% battery) Hopefully just a one off blip as was fine when I plugged it in to charge.

Haven't used the virtual fence and dont think i ever will

I have one and like it. Useless indoors but good out and about.. got mine after my 4.5 month puppy saw some deer and disappeared! I clip it to her harness and it's small and doesn't get in the way at all.

I talk to a dog rescuer and she reccommends everyone having a tracker..no they aren't perfect but if your dog really takes off you have a much better chance of finding them again.
