Black & Silver Pawscout Smart Tag for Dogs and Cats - Pawscout Smart Tag is a next-generation digital pet tag. The Pawscout Smart Tag attaches to any pet collar and locates your pet within a 200-foot radius of any phone or tablet with the Pawscout App. You can put your pet on a virtual leash and receive alerts if he strays. Invite friends, family, neighbors, dog walkers and pet sitters to install the free app to help protect your pet. If the worst ever happens and your pet goes missing, send out a digital "lost dog" flyer to all the animal lovers in your area and have the community searching for your pet the moment you notice he's on the loose. Why do you need Pawscout? Microchip information goes out of date, and reading a microchip requires a trip to the vet. Pets are family members, and it is impossible to capture their appearance, personality and special needs in the two or three lines provided by traditional pet tags. Pawscout offers a complete pet profile and a lifetime of protection for a one-time purchase. The Pawscout battery lasts six months or more and is easy to replace. Pawscout Smart Tag is waterproof, lightweight, compact and designed for dogs and cats. And it was developed in partnership with the SFSPCA to introduce a community-supported way to find lost pets and reunite them with their families. Never lose your best friend.

So far this has worked out really well. I looked at more expensive trackers that required a subscription, but since my dog never roams too far from the house, I settled on this cheaper alternative. I have a mini poodle who slips out a lot without us noticing. Although he doesn't go too far from the house, we live in the Florida country and just a few minutes out at night unattended and he can be attacked by an alligator, raccoon, snake, wild hog etc. I got this tag and when I opened it, it was very simple. download the free app, press the connect button and it's ready. The app allows you to enter special info about your dog. Every time my dog goes outside the door, I immediately get a message on my phone that he has left my immediate area which is very helpful. He has yet to have escaped since I put it on him, but if/when he does I will update on how well the tracking part works. Also, as others mentioned, the tracker is a bit big for smaller animals but it comes with different and...
Okay, so I have been looking at pet trackers for weeks for our 15 lb male cat. The Pawscout caught my eye early on as a clever idea but I thought the bluetooth range would be too short. I finally settled on the Marco Polo tracker. The Marco Polo worked great. I got a signal over a half mile away in our heavily forested suburban neighborhood. Only problem was the tracking device was just too dog gone (no pun intended) big for our 15 pound male cat. I know some people put those trackers on cats but it's 2 1/2 inches long and about an inch thick. I don't want my cat to have to bear that cross for the next eight years on the off chance that someday he might get lost and we might need to find him. So I sent the Marco Polo back and ordered the Pawscout.
The Pawscout arrived today. It is only 12 grams/0.4 ounces and a reasonable size for a cat to wear. I downloaded the app and got it set up without too much difficulty. It works fine. I took it out in front of the house...
I recently purchased this item in good faith that it would work for us. And it DOES. My cat doesn't usually wander very far, but she can be gone for an entire day which made me want to find an affordable way to track her in case she gets into trouble or gets injured. So far, this product is working EXACTLY as promised. She's been wearing it for two days and I have been able to easily see her whereabouts by using the APP that I downloaded to go with the tag. I'd definitely recommend this product for someone with a pet that doesn't wander too far away. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have and if I can answer them based on my personal experience then I'll be happy to.
