What happens when the battery runs out on a gps tracker if your dog is missing? The tracker could also be removed from the dog. At least if microchipped and they are lost they can be scanned for a chip and reunited.

There has been quite a few references to trackers this month so you might find some info in these posts.

AFAIK a microchip doesn't track lost dogs .

My dogs are microchipped and if they get lost and are found by someone , a scanner will reveal the microchip number and they can then find my name , address and contact number.
