It’s great but a bit annoying...

I got PawScout after the first time my kitten got out. He is special needs and really can’t be outside. About two weeks later he got out again and as I’m writing this review is still missing, I will get to that in a bit. I put out his picture and my contact information anywhere I could for free. Then I got a notification reading “Great news - somebody found (cats name). We passed your contact information along - the rescuer should be in contact soon.” I was so hopeful and it was the first time I felt that he could been safe while not being with me. I also checked the locator part and it said that he had come within 300 feet of me about 2 hours ago. So naturally I stopped everything and went looking for him where it said he was. I am aware that bluetooth based connections aren’t the most accurate but I felt quite hopeless when we couldn’t find him at that spot. I would like to clarify to future purchasers that this is not always the most accurate and while it is very helpful you must keep that in mind. Needless to say we didn’t find him then but I am hopeful that the rescuer will reach out to us tomorrow.

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!
