Guardian Orb Pet Tracker Boasts Advanced Geo-Location Technology

By Max Maxfield |

Using the Guardian Orb system, you can track your pets anywhere up to five to ten miles and see their location on your smartphone in real-time.


I just ran across the Guardian Orb Indiegogo Project. This little beauty is a pet tracking system that boasts advanced geo-location technology.

As you can see in this video, you start by connecting the Guardian base station to your internet router. Next, you attach a Guardian Orb to your pet's collar. Finally, you download the Guardian app to your smartphone. At this point, you can view and track your pet's location on the map on your smartphone in real-time.


About 14 years ago, my wife (Gina the Gorgeous) treated us to two Bichon Frise puppies, which we called Henri and Lili. They were wonderful, cheerful, and friendly little dogs. They were also bold explorers who somehow managed to escape our backyard. It took us ages to realize that Henri had worked out how to open one of the gates. We hadn’t realized (a) it was possible and (b) he had the brainpower. Many was the time we ended up roaming the streets searching for the little scamps.

Using the Guardian Orb system, you can track your pets anywhere up to five to ten miles. I tell you; If this system had been available when Henri and Lili were young pups, I would have jumped at it.

    Like you, I would have jumped on this immediately a few years back when I had a dog prone to wandering. The current dog has only gotten out of the back yard once since I've had her and didn't go any further than around the corner to the neighbor's house. She was running to the driveway and happy to see me when I got home and hasn't made an effort to get out since.

      @Elizabeth: "...I would have jumped on this immediately a few years back when I had a dog prone to wandering..."

      Sad to relate, Henri and Lili are no longer with us -- as he got older, Henri stopped wandering -- but when he reached his dotage, he started to get a bit of dementia -- you had to keep your eye on him because he would just go into a trance and wander wherever his nose took him...

      If we ever get another dog, I think this would be a must-have

     I'm strongly considering it even though the current dog shows little inclination to wander at this point.

    Another idea I toyed with before Henri shrugged off this mortal coil was attaching a camera to his collar that automatically took a snap every minute or so -- or a GoPro camera -- just to see what he got up to when my back was turned.
