Dog Track makes it easier and more fun to track with your dogs!
Dog Track helps you to lay and follow up your tracks and markers.
With Dog Track you first walk the track and lay the markers. When the track is finished you will see a map of the track with the markers. A summary will show the length of the track, number of markers and the time it took for you to walk the track.
When your dog walks the track Dog Track will draw a new track on the map and automatically mark the markers your dog finds. You will see the track you walked and in real time follow your dogs track.
After you and your dog have walked the track you will see a map that shows both tracks, which marker your dog has found, track length and time. You can log weather and wind conditions and also write your own comments.
Dog Track requires that Location service, GPS and Mobile Data is enabled on your phone.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Latest reviews of Dog Track app for iPhone and iPad
This one works!
Every time. Makes nice maps, easy to use with no learning curve. The GPS is accurate enough, although you get some anomalies near buildings if youre doing urban. I think this is a GPS challenge not an app problem, though. App developer is very responsive to questions-- a huge plus! Definitely my favourite tracking tool so far (dog excluded).
Good tracking aid
Once my husband and I figured out how to use it this app has been wonderful. As with anything new it took a few tries to get it down. I found that attaching the phone to her harness showed me where she was actually going. In many cases she did better than I thought she had. This program along with video taping what Juno does is very helpful.
Crashes and doesnt work
First and foremost. Im an AKC tracking judge and a tracking judge for the Australian Shepherd Club of America. Ive been an AKC judge since 1992.
Needless to say, I felt that the app would be terrific for my use.
Went to use it today. The instruction screen totally locked up, although I had read the instructions before, I was checking to make sure I was doing everything correct. Nothing. White page that then locks up the app. You have to exit the app and then shut your phone off to get the app working again.
In the instructions, they tell you that the color will tell you how accurate the GPS is. I had green all of the time, which means the best accuracy. Well, the yardage was WAY off. Half the time it had me walking on the top of buildings (Im doing VST work).
Even if I werent an AKC judge, youd still be able to walk down a sidewalk and know that youre walking in a straight line. Not according to the app. It had me all over the place.
Save your time and money.
