Forget Microchipping your Bichon Frise, try GPS Instead

2010 March 24

With technology moving at such a fast pace, microchipping is now considered retro among many Bichon Frise owners and they are opting instead for a GPS (GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM) to track their beloved dog(s). GPS-based devices like Globalpetfinder and PetsCell are the equivalent of doggy LoJack: If your Bichon Firse leaves the yard, you’re going to know. If the Bichon strays outside the boundary, an alert is sent to your cell phone or computer, along with a continuously updated location. PetsCell takes the concept a step further: The collar-based device is also a cell phone that allows a dog to hear his master’s voice.
