Message From Our Founder:
TrackFido® was founded by a team of people who absolutely love for pets. My dogs, FIDO, makes are family complete. Since FIDO came into my family's life 7 years ago, FIDO has stolen our family's hearts. With every memory of goofily playing frisbee, to running around at the dog parks, to our daily negotiations with after dinner treats ( how can I resist saying NO to those sad puppy eyes! ) FIDO has changed our life in so many ways. I'm sure this is relatable to most dog owners. I also know that dogs are selfless in their unconditional love and affection for those they meet, and how even a small interaction can go a long way in impacting us. This is why, on behalf of TrackFido® . We will donate a percentage of each sale to the Humane Society. We believe it is our responsibility to further are love to pets that need us.
In the coming months, TrackFido® plans on announcing our support for various local rescue non-profits in the Charlotte Area. We know that local chapter work is extremely hard to provide constant love & care towards pets in need of adoption. We're planning on making an open forum for the charlotte area where you can nominate local charities that you believe should need some love and supported by TrackFido®.
With your help we can fight animal cruelty and make sure every pet gets the love it needs. Here at TrackFido® we wanna say in advance thank you. We can't do it without your help.
Apple's AirTag slots neatly into the Find My ecosystem, expanding it to make it easier to keep track of the important items in your life.
Through AirTag, if you've lost one of your PETS close by, you can play a sound that helps you locate it, or just say, "Hey Siri, where are my dogs?" Your AirTag should then issue a sound, letting you know where it's located. You can also use the Find My app on your iPhone to find any lost PET with an AirTag attached.
It's easy! Either u have a Snap Case - Tag our a Apple AirTag Dog Collar. Finding FIDO just got easier.
Likewise, iPhone models that have the U1 chip (iPhone 11 and above) have the ability to steer you to the specific location of a lost item through Precision Finding. Your U1-enabled iPhone uses ultra wide band, which is the short-range, wireless protocol that uses radio waves to give your iPhone a sort of virtual spatial awareness. It can therefore judge the distance and direction to your AirTag, which also contains the U1 chip in its body.
Apple says that your iPhone then combines that data with the "accelerometer, camera input, ARKit and gyroscope," to provide feedback as to where your item is precisely located. Taking the form of haptic, visual and audible feedback, it should then guide you to where those keys are.
Lastly, Find My network. This is to help you track items that may be far removed from where you are. You'll likely be familiar with this if you're a fan of macOS, iOS and iPadOS, where users can track the best iPhones and best MacBooks, as long as they've been added to Find My app.
In the same way, AirTag can plug into this gargantuan tracking network, plus use any other nearby compatible devices to relay the location of your lost AirTag to iCloud should this happen.
AirTags use a replaceable CR2032 battery that is designed to last about a year before it needs to be replaced. The batteries are user replaceable, and to swap out a battery, you can press and twist on the back panel of the AirTag to pop it off.
If your AirTag is low on battery life, you'll get a notification that the battery needs to be replaced.
Here's how to replace the battery in your AirTag, and how you'll know when you need to do it.
An AirTag battery will last for about a year, and your iPhone will warn you when that battery is low. But if that notification is all you rely on, you can see there might be problems.
Maybe you get the low battery warning in the first hour of your two-week ocean cruise, for instance. And then your luggage gets lost coming off the boat at the end of the trip.
You can be sure that Apple won't wait until the last moment to give you a low battery notification. But the reason Apple can only give a rough estimate that an AirTag battery will last a year is that it depends on usage.
And the time you're going be using it is when you've lost something. So here's a suggestion for how to maximize the battery life in your AirTag before you have to replace it.
There are going to be AirTags that you activated the instant you got them, such as the one you're putting on your keyring. But ones you get for your luggage can wait until you're leaving.
The To Do app will prod you to at least be on the lookout for Apple's low battery notification. But if that app will also let you tag or mark your tasks, then before you go away on a trip, you can get it to show you all To Dos tagged "vacation."
So whenever your trip is, you'll see "Replace AirTag battery" and can make an informed decision about whether you're close to the 12 months or not.
Still, whether you do it early, wait for the notification, or do it after the battery has completely died, you're going to have to replace it at some point.
There is no need or way to charge an AirTag because Apple designed them with user replaceable CR2032 batteries.
A single AirTag is priced at $29, and a package of four AirTags can be purchased for $99. AirTags are available directly from Apple, and that price point does not include the accessories needed to attach the AirTag to.
AirTags do not have a defined range because they work within the range of Apple's Find My network. This means as long as an AirTag is within Bluetooth range of anybody's iPhone (or other Apple device), it can passively communicate with it and then help you locate it. For example, you can locate an AirTag that's hundreds of miles away so long as somebody with an iPhone walks near it.
The AirTag features an IP67 water and dust resistance rating, which means it can withstand immersion in water up to one meter (3.3 feet) for 30 minutes in laboratory conditions. That means the AirTag will hold up well to liquid exposure from rain or accidental spills.
AirTags do not include a GPS chip like your iPhone. Instead, Apple has used its proprietary U1 chip with ultra-wideband technology to create a peer-to-peer network that taps into the 1.65 billion Apple devices out in the wild to nail down the location of an AirTag.
Open the Find My app on your Apple device to see the tracker's location on a map. You can use the app to play a sound from the AirTag, which will help you locate the item, if you're nearby. If you have an iPhone 11 or 12 model, you can tap Find and turn to Precision Finding. This will tell you how far you are from the object and guide you to it via on-screen directions.
If you can't locate the tracker, there is an option in the Find My app to place it in Lost Mode and create a custom message to be displayed when your AirTag is found by another user. When they hold the AirTag near their phone, your message—like contact details—will appear on their device, and the Good Samaritan will hopefully get in touch. This will work on any device that has NFC enabled, meaning Android owners can help return lost AirTags, too.
AirTags use the devices connected to Apple's network in order to locate missing devices, but according to Apple, "no location data or location history is physically stored inside AirTag. Communication with the Find My network is end-to-end encrypted so that only the owner of a device has access to its location data, and no one, including Apple, knows the identity or location of any device that helped find it.” In other words, an AirTag owner can only determine the location of their own AirTag, not any other nearby Apple devices.
Android users cannot register an AirTag with their device, but as mentioned above, the NFC functionality in Android phones allows them to connect to lost AirTags and display any Lost Mode messages so they can return it.

If you lose your dog with a TrackFIDO® Collar and an AirTag inside it, you're notified on your iPhone. You can find your lost dog with the "Find My" app on your iPhone. Each AirTag contains an ultra-wideband chip. These chips transmit more data than Bluetooth or GPS, and at a higher rate. That means you'll able to pinpoint precisely where your dog is. An AirTag on your dog is basically like a pet microchip but with superpowers.
Both systems have their pros and cons. What is best for your dog depends very much on your use case. Let us show you the advantages of AirTags over GPS tracking devices, so you can decide for yourself. Here are some key benefits the AirTags have over GPS:
Yes, they do. If your dog is not nearby and can't be located, you can put the AirTag on your dog in Lost Mode. In this mode, if any other Apple device locates your dog, you'll receive a notification with the exact location of your dog. Tracking your dog with an AirTag will work best in urban areas, where many people live.
Important: AirTags do not give you a 100% guarantee to find your dog. But if your pet is lost, they increase the chance that you find him/her again a lot. Tracking your dog should only be used as a backup system. So please take all measures that your dog does not run away in the first place.
