When I leave home for an outdoor adventure of any kind, I get a kss and a “be careful” from my wife. We all want the people we care about to return home unscathed. But what about our four-legged friends? We cannot ignore the safety of our furry companions. A dog is a wonderful hiking and hunting companion, often working hard to make our lives easier. Many of us wear GPS devices to help keep us safe, and our pooches should get the same attention. Garmin loves your dog too and has just launched two new GPS devices for dogs. Introducing the Garmin TT 15X and T 5X.

Garmin TT 15X and T 5X dog devices
Whichever model you choose, battery life is a primary focus of the TT 15X and T 5X. Both will last up to 80 hours. Batteries can be even longer when you put the collars to sleep remotely, using your handheld tracking unit. This same handheld can be used to illuminate LED beacon lights in low light conditions. These let you track the old Rover up to nine miles away. They use GPS and GLONASS satellite networks for more reliable tracking. Compatible with the Alpha 10, Alpha 100, Alpha 200i, Astro 430 and PRO 550 Plus, MSRP starts at $299.99.
