Finding Fido: Gadgets That Keep Track of Your Pets

On the Run

Best ways to prevent pets from hightailing it out of here:

  1. Sudden noises: Scaredy-cats (and dogs) will run for cover when they hear thunder or fireworks, so keep them inside or on a leash during storms or on the Fourth of July.
  2. Heat is on: Get pets neutered or spayed to prevent them from looking for love.
  3. Missing you: Pets can feel disoriented without their owners, making them more likely to wander off. Make sure your animal feels comfortable around your pet sitter.
