The GPS device, which can be attached to standard nylon collars, is used primarily for dogs weighing 15 pounds and larger. This device allows pet owners to locate their pet through a web interface and also provides owners with notification if the pet is not where it should be for that day and time.

The applicable subheading for the GPS pet locator device will be 8526.91.00, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Radar apparatus, radio navigational aid apparatus and radio remote control apparatus: Other: Radio navigational aid apparatus. The rate of duty will be Free.
