Bonjour, il m'est impossible de connecter ma montre phenix 3 a mon alpha 300 avez vous une idée ??? Merci d'avance

Sorry to hear you are having problems. Did you happen to read the Trouble Shooting document I link to in the App Info? Pretty much guaranteed your issue is either that you have your Alpha connected to Garmin's DogTrack widget or that you haven't enabled Remote in the Alpha. Both issues are well described in the document.

Good app in general but the need to frequently remove connection between Garmin widget and the Alpha to let this app work is inconvenient. And the distance data in the widget and in this app is usually different wich is annoying too.
May 9, 2023,
Sorry to hear you are finding the app annoying. Unfortunately the way Garmin has implemented their native support prevents other app connections to the Alpha at the same time. I generally recommend using one or the other, in which case it tends to just work.
As for the distance, that's just the value being provided by the Alpha. I'm not sure how you can compare the distance in the app to the widget, as only one of the two can be connected at the same time.

Nice to be able to stor alpha 10 in my pocket and just check dogs position on my Rino or Fenix
October 30, 2022,
Thanks. Great to hear you are finding the app useful.

I use it with the fenix 7x solar and with the Astro 50 .
The only problem is that I don’t get the names of the dogs!!
February 12, 2022,
Stavros, sorry to hear you are having issues with the names. Any time I've seen this in the past, it's a problem with the Alpha itself not sending the names. Just changing a name, even if you put it right back to the original, always has fixed the problem. If doing that doesn't fix your problem, feel free to click on "Contact Developer" and I'll happy try to help you trouble shoot the problem.

Use this on a astro 320 and forerunner 235. Test it once. The distance is correct, but the direction is not accurate. the compassarrow on the clock shows not the correct direction, compare to the correct position of the dog on the astro 320. i have got info that more has this problem, usting similar setup as me. Does anyone have a tip how to solve this?
September 13, 2021,
Unfortunately the compass is an issue with the 235 and not the Astro itself, so nothing this app can do to improve that. The 235 doesn't have a magnetic compass which is needed for more accurate direction.

Erittäin hyvä! Nopealla vilkaisulla kellosta näet koiran suunnan ja etäisyyden. Ei tarvitse ottaa tutkaa taskusta.

Great app. Thank you for it! Would it be possible to do some enhancements on-demand?
February 24, 2021,
Thank you. If you have suggestions/requests, please use the contact developer button. However, this is my legacy app for older devices that is unlikely to get new features. DogTracker Plus and Dog Tracker Map field are more likely to get enhancements.

Is this the best widget (out of the ones available) for tracking dogs while upland hunting? Also, I was given a garmin T9 collar, is it possible to connect the collar to my fenix 3HR watch without the handheld?
February 7, 2021,
You do need one of the hand helds in order to make it work. The collar by itself can't communicate with the watches. The only two of the dog tracker apps that will work on the Fenix3 are this and the basic data field. You'd use that one if you also want to record your activity, but it just gives a simple direction to your dog, along with some basic geo-fence alerts.

Just installed this on Fenix 6 Pro. Using with 550PLus transmitter. how do i set it up so when a dog goes on point and watch vibrates that I know WHICH dog is on point? (stopped)
December 4, 2020,
It depends on the view. If you are on the page with the ring, the outline of dog indicates if the dog is stationary or moving. A thick border indicates the dog is stationary. In the first image on this page, you can see the red arrow has the thicker border.

Cuantos perros puedes seguir en fenix 3??
July 18, 2020,
The Fenix 3 should be able to handle all 20 dogs with this version of the app. My other apps may have further limitations as they require more memory per dog.
February 18, 2020 |
Works great after disabling the Garmin's own app, thank you for the tip! Great work, thanks!

Hola pongo el id de mi alpha 100 y siempre me sale esta numeración 2147483647 por que puede ser ? gracias
November 27, 2019,
Sorry to hear you are having problems. Chances are you've used Garmin's Dog Tracker Widget which prevents my apps from connecting until you use the widget to "forget" the Alpha/Astro. There are instructions in the troubleshooting section of my help document how to fix this. Unless you have other Alpha's/Astro's around, you should just leave the ID set to 0.

Sûrement très bien, mais non compatible avec un alpha 100 version française...Garmin vends du rêve mais en fin de compte on reste sur notre faim.comment passer sur une version US?
January 6, 2019,
I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with the app. I'm not sure what you mean that it isn't compatible with the French version of the Alpha 100. This would likely be an issue with the Alpha and not the app. Please feel free to contact me directly at the "Contact Developer" link if there is something I might be able to help you with.

Is there a way to se the bark counter it would be very nice. Thanx for a great app
November 26, 2018,
Unfortunately this is not data that is transmitted by the Alpha/Astro to the watch. So there would be no way for the app to get access to this information to display. Glad you are enjoying the app.

Ottima App, la sto usando con ATEMOS 100 e FENIX 3 HR inoltre lo sviluppatore è molto disponibile l'ho contattato piu volte e mi ha sempre dato risposte puntuali.
Great App, I'm using it with ATEMOS 100 and FENIX 3 HR, moreover the developer is very helpful, I contacted him several times and he always gave me precise answers

Fantastic app for all you Garmin Astro/Alpha/xxx owners! Really makes Garmin look good. The convenience is worth your dog's weight in gold! Much easier to glance at a watch than to pull the Garmin unit out, not to mention the safety of being able to put the Garmin unit in a safe (unable to lose) place! The greatest thing in my opinion is the ability to set distance parameters/alarms for your dog. You no longer have to watch the Garmin screen when in thick cover to see where you dogs are! If they are within the range you set, no problem. If not, You are notified! Great addition! Garmin should be paying you big bucks for this app Eric! (So should the users too, but everyone knows bird dog addicts don't have any money so..... Also, I cannot thank Eric enough for his support on ironing out a few issues on my part! His commitment and service ethics are a very rare commodity these days, and extremely, extremely appreciated.
Thanks for such a great job!

This continues to be my favorite Garmin app. It's perfect for tracking multiple pointing dogs and allows me to keep my focus in the field. Thank you!

Using Astro 320 and Forerunner 235.
Arrow is red though even when I have full gps signal on my 320.
Would like to see dog status also, moving, sitting barking.
August 29, 2018,
Glad to hear you are enjoying the app. The arrow color indicates if the dog is moving or not, Red indicates it is not moving. Green indicates it is moving. On the multi dog "ring" view, the colors match the color set for the dog on the Astro. The border around the arrow gets thicker when the dog is not moving. The big ring color also indicates if the furthest dog is moving or stationary.

Nice app! I still use the data field version since I like to track my hiking trips at the same time. A version of this app integrated with an hiking app/functionality would have been great!

ottima applicazione, funziona perfettamente anche con i nuovi Athemos 100

Is it possible to use Dog tracker app for locating mobile phone instead of Garmin Astro/Alpha?
January 18, 2018,
Unfortunately no. It relies on Ant+ communication with the Alpha which sends the location of the Alpha and Dogs to the watch. There is no such communication with the phone. It would probably be possible for someone to write such an app but that would require both a CIQ app running on the watch and an app running on your phone. In this case, the phone would need to be with in BT range to get the communication.

Thank you for a Great app. Is IT possible to track an activity at the same time? Hiking / cycling together with this dogtrack? If yes - How do you do that?
December 3, 2017,
Not at this time with this app but I do have a more limited data field version that you can use with a normal activity. https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/521d4940-2600-4bad-9c39-1d035d2049f2

Fonctionne parfaitement sur Fenix 5 avec alpha 100 et collier TTmini. Indispensable pour remplacer le dog track d origine de Garmin. Amélioration possible : personnalisation du code couleur des chiens ou mise en lien avec le code couleur de l alpha 100.
Merci au développeur
December 3, 2017,
Thanks for the review and glad it is working well for you. The color for each dog on the multi dog page should be tied to the color selected for that dog on the Alpha. Note that not all colors can be matched due to limitations on the devices.
November 25, 2017 |
This is what Garmin should have done! Send love to Lexi.
November 16, 2017 |
This app is fantastic. The upgrade that allows tracking multiple dogs at the same time made it perfect. Thanks!
