Bella and Evie Go Exploring

Bella and Evie Go Exploring

*Ad. This post was written in collaboration with Vodafone to promote the launch of ‘V-Pet by Vodafone’, however all views and opinions shared are our own.*

Anyone that knows us will know that we like to explore.  This is something that has got us into some scrapes in the past though – and also lost on a few occasions… Most of the time we can be found in our next door neighbour’s garden, but it is something that worries our ‘pawrents’ – will we one day escape and not be next door?

Kippy Vita S  by V by Vodafone has sorted the escapology problem and developed a product to keep us safe, not only when we are out on a walk, in the garden at home or at a ‘furiend’s’ house, but even at large pet-friendly UK festivals. Kippy Vita S   from V by Vodafone has GPS and doubles up as an activity tracker, so our humans can track us via their smartphones through the Kippy Vita S App and also see how active we’ve been that day.

The device costs £55 and you pay £4 per month for your V-Sim by Vodafone subscription. Once this was set up our pawrents were able to track us and even receive tips on how to improve our well-being. Getting started is really easy – all you need to do is purchase  the Kippy Vita S from V by Vodafone , which includes the V-Sim by Vodafone and then download the V by Vodafone and Kippy Vita S App. Once you’ve done that you can find your pet’s location direct from your smartphone. Wherever you are, you can keep track of your furry friend.

Another cool feature is that you can set up a “safe zone”. The humans draw a fence around an area within the app and the GPS tracker for dogs lets them know when we’ve wandered outside of this! This worked particularly well when we visited our Nanny who has a big garden that is not as secure as ours.

It is also water resistant and shock absorbent. This is really important as we often like to splash about in a puddle or have a paddle in the sea. The pet tracker is attached really easily to both collars and harnesses, which our pawrents were really happy with as we like to wear both depending on where we are going.
