Review from Laura Erickson
Garbage. It quits reading the signal 3 houses away. Completely pointless when you can still see your pet in that distance.
November 29, 2017One of our goals is to help lost pets easily get reconnected to their loved ones. We sell a tag that works with a community of Pawscout users that can be powered by a single replaceable watch battery. So when a pet manages to escape their home and come within 300 ft of someone with the Pawscout app, the owner will get an update on their location.
I board dogs so I love the Pawscout tag/app for the security it gives me! The map is not exact but it gives you an area to look in and peace of mind. Thankfully I haven't had to use the "lost pet" feature but I've tested the gps function and I'm confident it works splendidly. I had some issues with the first tag I bought and the Pawscout support team were extremely helpful and quick to respond. I'd love it if I could enter the dog's weight manually instead of scrolling (as I'm constantly changing it with the different dogs I host) but that's a minor adjustment. I've shared it with my family, friends, and clients. I'm hoping together, we can build up a large community for those stressful times of need!
This app has not located our dog but ONCE. It is still stuck on found your dog 2 weeks ago at our own house. It makes me doubt that anyone at all has this app in our area of Southern California
I am very happy with this app and the tag! A cheap and user friendly alternative to much more expensive GPS trackers. I really hope more people jump on board to make finding a potentially lost pet much easier. Shared this on social media.
Bought three for my furbabies as I frequently travel. Loaded info into app day one and app quit working. Had to uninstall several times but now seems to work. Not impressed with the coverage/range of collar... only about 300 feet if in open area... anything in your way and distance drops to about 25, even with bran new batteries. I live in country and nearest other user is 5 miles away... this makes it useless except for myself if I had to look for them at night. Paw scout replaced three unit which I've had trouble with seem to be working now, thus the increase from 1 to 3 stars... time will tell if they go up further... the Company SEEMS genuinely concerned. SAME PROBLEM with new ones... giving up! SAVE YOUR TIME AND MONEY AND TAKE THEM BACK NOW. TWO OF THE NEW ONES KEEP SHUTTING DOWN
Made very poorly. I've had the tracker for about two weeks and its already broke. And why don't you guys have pitbull as an option for breed?
So far so good! I love the virtual leash feature. Hoping to get more neighbors to get Pawscout for their pets to maximize the effectiveness of the lost pet alerts. Maybe the pawscout peeps could offer referral encentives or rewards?
