I looked into them and opted against. I can see how they could be useful since you travel, so maybe someone will have better advice. There are so many people who travel on the forum!
Most of what I found are large for the size of our dogs (although I looked when he was a puppy so the size might be more appropriate now), require subscriptions, and need to be charged or have batteries changed. My other issue is that my dog doesn’t wear a harness or collar indoors, so it wouldn’t help find him in case of an accidental dash out the door since he wouldn’t be wearing it.
My Tile app has caused me nothing but problems, but DH has never had an issue with his. There are other brands but to me they all have the same issue if they’re based on the same bluetooth technology - you don’t know if you’ve lost connection until you actually need to use it.
My father in law had a real gps system for his dog that was much more reliable but it was hundreds of dollars and the collar had to be on.
