Pawscout: The Smarter Pet Tag

Pawscout: The Smarter Pet Tag

Pawscout, The Smarter Pet Tag, brings the most advanced and connected pet accessory of its kind with benefits and features designed for owners to build safe communities for their pet, all housed within the familiar form of a pet tag.

These days a pet dog or cat presents countless opportunities for upgrades, from ergonomic food bowls to dog joggers. But up until now, the traditional pet tag has offered little more than an address or phone number. Pawscout gives pet owners a whole new way to connect with and keep a close eye on their favorite fur-ball.

A Pawscout tag tracks movements and identifies lost pets with the help of the Pawscout App, allowing owners to share alerts and receive virtual updates from their online community of friends, family, and other pet owners. The tag tracks walk distances, and a live map means people can easily spot their pet in real-time as long as the pet is within a 300-foot range of anyone with the Pawscout App.  For extra security, a virtual leash can be set to warn owners if their pet decides to scamper out of view.

Pawscout Pet Owner Benefits:

  • Community Pet Finder: Alert all users in the area as soon as your pet goes missing. Get notified when your pet comes within range of anyone with the Pawscout App.
  • Digital Profile and Medical Records: Create a full digital profile of your pet including photos, your contact info, vaccinations and behavioral or medical issues.
  • Outdoor Virtual Pet Leash: Set up and receive notifications if your pet strays from the yard, park, or hiking trail.
  • Walk Tracker: Track your walks or runs in a diary and know where family, friends or pet-sitters are walking your pet.

Like the name tags of old, Pawscout tags optionally offer laser-etched, scratch-resistant engraving. But, in keeping with the tag's originality, you can choose a style that fits your pet's character. Got a perky Westie on your hands? Go for the plaid and let him flaunt his Scottish roots. Or a puss who is really more of a glamor-puss? The leopard print is right up her alley. All Pawscout tags are also Bluetooth-enabled, waterproof, hold a battery life of up to six months and at 5g, won't weigh down even the tiniest of terriers.

From the location-based features that allow people to track their own or their friend's pet's movements, to finding a local, pet-recommended coffee shop, Pawscout is the modern name tag for the modern pet.

Pawscout, The Smarter Pet Tag™, is designed to replace the typical metal engraved tag that has not changed in over 200 years.  The free Pawscout App serves as a companion to the tag and as a resource for all pet parents with thousands of pet-friendly places.  The Pawscout ecosystem is an ever-growing mesh network for locating and tracking pets that strengthens with every app download. Pawscout is based in San Francisco, and the team includes veterans from the pet, consumer, and high-tech industries who have collectively successfully sold over 100,000,000 products at retail.

Pawscout tags are available on and priced at $19.99, with no monthly fees. The Pawscout App is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
