Every pet owner knows that sinking feeling of repeatedly calling their dog’s or cat’s name into the abyss, only to have it fall on deaf ears. Panic sets in and you instantly walk the streets looking for your little furry friend, imagining the worst while you pray for the best. Luckily, these days you can get pet GPS trackers in Australia and beyond to allay your fears.
GPS pet trackers are built-in or clipped onto pet collars and track their whereabouts in real time via an app, so you’ll always know where to find them. Not only that, but they also monitor pet activity, allowing you to create safe areas for your pet to explore. They can also send you instant alerts if someone leaves a door/door open and suddenly becomes an escape artist.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best pet GPS trackers in Australia so you’ll never lose your beloved fido again.
Pet trackers like the Tractive GPS Tracker for Dogs have unlimited range, so you can track your pup from anywhere in the world. It also lets you create virtual fences so you know when your dog enters or leaves an area you’ve marked as safe, and can send tracking updates right to your phone.
The Tractive GPS Tracker has a dog-friendly design that is designed to fit comfortably around your dog’s neck without interfering with their movement or becoming irritating. The Pet GPS Tracking Accessory features a flexible rubber clip that fits dog collars of different sizes. The good news is they do it for cats too.

If you love the outdoors and enjoy taking your pup with you on hikes and campsites, this tracker is perfect for the job. Why? First, it can be easily attached to your pet’s collar, and second, it uses satellite technology to keep an eye on your furry friend, even when your cell phone is out of reach.
The only downside is that to receive updates you have to pay an annual or monthly plan (which varies depending on the features you want). But hey, what’s peace of mind worth?
When you’re not in the bush, you can also use this tracker for your valuables like your laptop or car if you keep losing it in the parking lot.
