Hi! I am new to Dogster! I am writing because my sister and I are looking into getting into the dog collar gps business. We have whippets and have been looking for a way to track their speed while having fun at the park. The speedometer we are thinking of developing would use gps technology to record your dogs top and average speed. This is meant to be used for fun, and to help owners keep track of their dogs fitness level. Your dog runs at his own will, and the device is small and light weight. I think it would be great fun for anyone with a dog who loves running. GPS technology is not cheap however, and we are concerned that not enough people would be interested in just tracking speed. Wondering if anyone interested would be willing to give us some feedback, would you consider buying a unit like this? How much would you expect to pay? Thanks for your time!

sounds like a really fun idea! myself and friend both have whippets and there is a little competition going about who is faster... (im sure my girl is anyway!) haha but would be great to have that little device to actually see how fast she is..!
