Thread: Dogtra Pathfinder

  1. #1

    Default Dogtra Pathfinder

    Anyone know or heard anything about the dogtra pathfinder? I saw it on another site but with limited information about it. Tried doing a search on it and came back empty. Hoping they have something at pheasant fest.

    What is it? A GPS collar? I asked Dogtra at Pheasant Fest the last time it was in Minneapolis if Dogtra was coming out with a GPS collar and the guy told me yes but it never happened.

    It appears it's a GPS tracking system that works with your smartphone.

    Gundog supply is offering it for preorder.

    What's interesting is that there is a pre order on two different sites, but nothing on the dogtra site. There is also very little information elsewhere on the web. It seems like some cool technology just looking for more information before I would take the plunge.

    I have always been a bit Dogtra fan but changed since I needed a GPS collar. I like the idea, pricepoint is excellent. Only I prefer a physical button for quick correction, not a touchscreen.

    I've wondered more than once if you could get an app on your phone that would integrate with a collar. I think it's a great idea, but IMO it would have been even better if the device in between the collar and the phone had buttons on it for stimulation. Leave the phone strictly for GPS stuff. But they didn't ask me. Hope it sells well and creates some price pressure on Garmin.

    Regardless, I'm not planning on replacing my alpha with one of these.

    Has anyone navigated the app yet? My main concern is the quick correction and the fumbling to get to the app. I have contacted Dogtra's customer service but they said there is no way to navigate the app to see every feature until it is paired to a collar.
