The Smartest Pet Tag

december january

I discovered Pawscout having browsed the Internets for a pet tag. I was wondering if their was a digital pet tag that helps people identify pets. I mainly got tired of the sound the metal pet tag would make when my dog and I were out on walks and was surprised that GPS tags, Pawscout, and others even existed.

I first looked into GPS collars but came across Pawscout The Smarter Pet Tag. In doing research, GPS collars would be a hassle having to charge batteries and I don't want people to think that my dog can speak English with the large device attached to her collar.

Having received my Pawscout, I found out that there's this fantastic app that works with the tag! I saw some real bad reviews but I think most were referring to the old version. The new version is great and it has so much potential for improvement (reason for 4 star review)!!

One feature I like besides storing all my pet's important information is tracking our walks. Having our walk history, I can remind myself to take different or new routes in my neighborhood so she can keep her nose busy.

It has a lost pet option if my pet ever does go missing. It's beneficial if more people have the app so they can get notifications about my lost pet. Some of my neighbors have downloaded it but we luckily haven't had to use it yet because my dog hasn't been lost.

Really cool app! I will try to build my Pawscout community so I can be at peace when my dog decides to leave my house.

Thanks for your thoughtful review, and for your contributions to the Pawscout community. Do not hesitate to reach out to us at support@pawscout.com with any suggestions or issues.



I’ve been looking at pet trackers for over a year. Most of them are ridiculously expensive. When I came across Pawscout I thought it was too good to be true, but I was wrong. The features that the tag and app have for the price is impressive. You can track a walk, keep vet information, and track your dog if they go missing. The tag is extremely easy to set up with the app. It took under a minute. I also like that they provide flush mounts for your dogs collar. We’ve had them about a week and I am very impressed so far. I would highly recommend any pet owner try it.

Leo the Runaway


My dog Leo is known in my neighborhood as a runaway. He is always “visiting” his friends. My brother saw this in the store and bought it for Leo. I love this app because I can safely let my dog out into the yard and it will notify me when he is out of range. Before this I’ve tried everything to stop Leo from leaving including the “puppy bumper” which eventually tore up and became trash. While this doesn’t prevent Leo from leaving it does help me find him a lot faster. I know exactly where he is (or who he’s visiting) with the app.

We're happy to hear that Pawscout is keeping Leo safe!
