Even if a pet is microchipped, they must be taken to a shelter or a veterinarian to be scanned, and not all microchips can be read by all scanners. Microchipping and external dog tags are passive and it could take weeks for to a pet to be found, but the DOTT tag allows owners to actively search for their pet.
DOTT: The Smart Dog Tag works 4X better than a microchip and allows owners to proactively search for their pets. Each app user in the network has an effective search area of 384,844 sq. feet. When a pet enters someone's search area, they will immediately receive a notification. Those in the DOTT community and anyone using the app will also be able to join the search party and help locate your pet, fast.
You don’t have to worry if you’re the only one in your neighborhood. Promising field tests show that even if you’re the only one in the area, DOTT is proven to be effective.
Your friends and neighbors can also join your search party in the DOTTwalk app. The app allows you to share a digital lost pet poster and broadcast the poster to everyone in the area. Each user has a coverage of 385,000 sq. feet (which is equal to 85 standard basketball courts) and the total coverage is multiplied by the number of users. The coverage of only 10 users is enough to protect an entire neighborhood!
Unlike other pet trackers, DOTT’s battery lasts 6-9 months, so you have more time to grow your search network and find your pet, before the battery dies.
