This lightweight and durable dog tag is designed to make sure that if a lost pet goes missing, you'll be able to find them again quickly and easily.

The 'DOTT' smart dog tag is a small and inexpensive Bluetooth-enabled device that easily attaches to a dog's collar. Unlike other tracking devices, this tag is unobtrusive to your pets daily routine, can run for six months on a single charge and pairs with your phone to form a virtual leash. If your pet goes outside of a pre-determined range you will be immediately notified through a mobile companion app.

The mobile app also helps to notify other 'DOTT' owners about your lost pet as well. The community app lets you create a dog profile, and the tag itself will also send out a signal covering a 350-foot radius. If your dog passes anyone who has their app activated, the tag will sync with their phone and immediately notify both of you about the dog's last known location.
