Getting Fit with Tagg, Week Three

I can’t believe January is flying by so quickly and that we’re already on Week Three of our Getting Fit with Tagg series!

This week we had some very mild, pleasant weather, cool enough for the dogs to feel frisky but warm enough to enjoy some really long walks. It showed in their activity tracker scores, too; here’s a look at yesterday’s:

As you can see above, Tiki still hasn’t yet hit her target of 300 points for the day…but she’s far closer to it than she was last week. Irie really got busy and went over her target goal:

Part of that activity, on the part of both dogs, was time spent splashing around in our creek. It’s not deep enough to swim but they definitely splash around…and that’s one question that a reader asked us recently: can the Tagg unit get wet?

Thankfully, the answer is YES. The tracker (the part on your dog’s collar) can be worn when swimming or bathing. The docking unit, which is plugged in inside your house and serves as a “home base” so it knows when your dog strays outside the identified zone and also serves as a charging base, is NOT water resistant.

What questions do you have about Tagg? This week, as part of the Rafflecopter giveaway, we’re asking readers for their questions about the Tagg unit and we’ll come back next week with answers to many of your questions.

    How heavy is the unit?

  • LyricInTime2803

    My dogs already have their regular collars with tags, plus their invisible fence collars. Would this be too bulky to add? Also, I don’t have a smartphone. Can the information (whether gps tracking or all this cool fitness options you’ve been posting about) be accessed on a regular computer?

    What do I do when I take my dog on a walk or to the dog park so that I don’t get alerts that she’s out of her territory?

  • Danielle Murgia

    When Sissy is with me, do I need to take the tracker off her or can she wear it on walks and trips to my moms?

  • Cheryl Chervitz

    How much does the unit weigh? I have Boston Terriers, is this too big for them to carry around?

  • Can the unit work on other devices besides the iphone?

  • How do you set the home area on the tracker?

  • Do you support or expect to support Android?

  • Sylvia Ortiz

    Is the charging base portable? If so, how long does the charge normally last on the base?

  • Danielle E

    How small can a dog be and still comfortably wear it?
