Dog Expedition TC1 Border Patrol GPS System

gps wireless dog fence

Dog owners often want to let their pets run around freely outside instead of being tied up or left in a kennel. Many of these dogs, however, can roam a little too freely; instead of staying on their owner’s property, they may leave to explore on their own the great outdoors on other people’s land. Some dogs are so intent on exploring that they can even jump a fence. The Dog Expedition TC1 is one of only a handful of wireless fences available on the market and can help pet parents take care of their dogs without worry. It’s possibly the best way to keep your pets under control, preventing unwanted wandering where they could get into danger on roads.

Portability

The Dog Expedition TC1 Border Patrol GPS System is a new, portable dog-fencing system that you can take with you wherever you go. While the initial price tag can be rather steep, the Border Patrol GPS system will allow your dog the freedom that you have always been looking for. The system is portable so you can take it with you wherever you go. It’s ideal for use from anywhere from your backyard to going out camping or hunting or doing any other outdoor activities that you might want to do with Fido in tow.

Size and Capacity

The Dog Expedition TC1 Border Patrol GPS System is able to expand to cover anywhere from an area as small as 15 yards to as large as 800 yards. 800 yards is equivalent to almost 2 miles of straight-line vision. The system has a quick set-up as it’s the first truly wireless, portable setup of its kind on the active market. Being a wireless handheld system means that there is little setup required when the product arrives. It’s ready for use almost immediately. The system works by providing 50 varying levels of vibration intensity to the dog based on the dog’s responsiveness and size to keep the dog within the range you have set. The system is designed to fit any dog with a collar size of 27” or less. Battery life will last about a day or 12 hours on one charge.

While the initial price-tag can be a little steep once you have purchased the initial tracking system you have the freedom to take your dog virtually anywhere and keep them within the prespecified range that you set. It also allows you to track your dog out in more open places such as hunting or camping grounds where you otherwise would be hesitant to let your dog roam more. Trees and metal objects will also not interfere with the tracking process. So far, the perimeter can only be set in circular patterns and not in any other pattern. Just remember to recharge the battery each night for use the next day!
