Today is National Love Your Pet Day

Tips for celebrating National Love Your Pet Day

For the 115 million Americans who are pet owners, today, February 20, is National Love Your Pet Day.  Some will honor their four-footed or furry friends with an extra treat, a romp in the park or a new chew toy, as pet-related expenditures – including food, trips tothe vet, boarding and doggie day care – will top $52 billion this year alone. With all that we do to keep our pets happy and healthy, many are making investments to ensure their safety as well.  A new technology is helping to simplify that job and giving owners peace of mind in knowing how to find their pet should it escape through a door left ajar or an unlatched gate in hot pursuitof a mouse, bird or squirrel. Pet Tracker made by Tagg and sold at local Verizon Wireless stores is a lightweight device that clips to your dog’s or cat’s collar.  The device comes with a companion downloadable app and uses GPS tracking and wireless technology to monitor your pet’s location and activity.  Should your pet get out, a text or email is automatically sent to your smartphone to notify you of the exact location.  The technology is also a great way to ensure your pet is getting enough activity while you’re at work during the day.Pet Tracker is priced at $99.99 and includes three months of free service.  After three months, you’ll be charged $7.95 per month.
