About this app

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.

-The Pawscout App relies on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to communicate with your Pawscout Smarter Pet Tag. Your pet must be within 300 feet of you or anyone with the Pawscout App to locate him or her.
-The Pawscout App relies on Location Services and Bluetooth, which must be enabled on your phone.
-Works with Lollipop (Android 5) or newer.

So far it's working well. I've had one pet run out on me since having the app, and it was a great reassurance to be able to post her on here. My pet came back on her own but, I'm facing an issue with notifications. It might be a bug but no matter how many times I allow permissions and follow all instructions, they won't turn on. Being up to date is an important aspect when your pet is missing. Hopefully this gets fixed cause I really like the app otherwise.

This app does not work will not stay connected for more than 5 minutes does not record walks accurately only get about 0.02 on the distance then stops I have been trying it for a week now and it's getting worse instead of better I have changed battery and tried it on 3 different phones all with the same results. This thing is worthless don't waste your time or money on this product. NO GOOD AT ALL. GARBAGE
