With Pawscout’s free app, safety and community are always in paw’s reach. Help lost pets, connect with local pet owners, track walks, and browse thousands of pet points of interest.

A Free App to Help Lost Pets
Most lost pets don’t go far—that’s why it’s crucial to rally your community. Pawscout’s App makes it easy to enlist local pet lovers in the search, and our Bluetooth-enabled Tag (optional) alerts users when a lost pet is nearby. A detailed medical profile helps pet heroes care for your furry BFF until you can be reunited.

Connect with Pets Nearby
Build your local network of pet lovers with Pawscout’s social tools. Share photos, arrange walks and playdates, and alert neighbors to pet hazards or pet-friendly places. Invite friends and family to expand your “petwork.”

Track Walks and Set a Virtual Pet Leash
Pawscout, the Smarter Pet Tag (MSRP $19.99), works with our free App to keep tabs on your favorite furball. Track walks and monitor your pet’s activity levels. Or set an outdoor virtual pet leash while you’re outside, and receive alerts on your phone when your pet goes out of range.

Good product, just somewhat slow response by CS.

looked a long time for a smart pet tag for our cat. This one was smaller than most, for a reasonable one time cost. Best of all, you can sign up Guardians to be able to check on your pet also, and the battery is replaceable.

The only down side is that if you have a problem it may take a while for customer service to get back to you. We found our tag did not post to the map when we were evacuating from hurricane Florence. It took 19 hours for their first response. The issue was esculated to engineering techs but after a couple of days we contacted then again to get them to finally respond. They then sent instructions which easily resolved the issue.
This delay is pretty normal I guess. It just was frustrating in our emergency situation and made me concerned that if our cat had been missing it would have been days before we could have tracked him down while we waited on the company to respond. Yet, at least they respond at all. I love that they email our cat by name.

Needs an Alarm

I just got my Pawscout and so far I love it. I easily created profiles for my dogs and they actual piece attached easily to their collars. I like that they are water proof because my dogs love to play in the rain. The app itself is pretty accurate, even indoors where it’s not guaranteed. I leave the leash on at all times and I am always getting alerts about the movements of my dog. I now can tell you exactly where inside of the house my dog is in at all times The only drawback that I saw was that people were mentioning it doesn’t point you in an exact direction when your dog is lost, so I thought the addition of an alarm or some kind on the collar would be beneficial. That way when someone’s dog is marked lost their collar makes a beeping noise when the owner gets close. Other than that, I think the app paired with the physical Pawscout is an amazing feature to add piece of mind.

Thanks for the excellent review! Remember, Pawscout Tags are water-resistant and not waterproof. They can withstand a walk in the rain but should be removed if your pet plans on going for a swim. Keep on sharing Pawscout and further protect your pet. Thanks again!

Couldn’t believe how easy and inexpensive Pawscout is. I was expecting a gps type device that eats batteries. 6 months on one battery?? Perfect for forgetful peolpe who only realize it till they are gone. This device could save children’s lives also. I have a daughter who is 5 and worried constantly about sexual predators and child abductors who steal our kids and sell them for sex slaves market. This device could be double branded to save our kids lives. Just clip it to a jacket zipper or if they are going to an amusement park and they go missing, I could have her located instantly or police could track them without bad people even knowing it’s happening. We only get one chance at this parenting thing so stay safe everyone!! Dogs, cats and anyone we love. Even dementia patients who can wander away for no reason. Not a big fan of big brother technology but this could be a game changer for many applications. Thank you !!!!
