    Effective and Affordable

    By JettaMom on Oct 28, 2019

    I love the Dott! Our dog has gotten out several times. With this product we are able to track her moves with the app. We all have it on our phones. We can also track her walks and other activities. No monthly subscription and purchase price less than others. I definitely recommend this product!

    This Doesn’t Work

    By on

    I purchased this for my escapee dog. However, this product does not work. It may not require a subscription, but it uses Bluetooth technology which means your dog is gone once they are out of the range and they are gone. The one time I thought it was working, I realized I was tracking myself. Also, the one and only time I was alerted that my dog was “out of range,” in other words gone, was when I was leaving the house (my dog was inside). Find a good collar and pay the monthly fee for tracking.

    This thing is useless

    By on

    I wanted a Bluetooth tracker for my cat so when she hides in my yard I can find her but this app is mainly it for walking dogs I guess? The tag needs to be close to your phone to work and then it doesn't give you any useful information like oh the pet is this many feet away or anything. To get it to track your pet you have to report your pet lost and that's ridiculous I don't want to have to put on social media that my cat's lost just because I'm looking to see if she's under the deck or up in a tree. I don't understand the point of it at all I don't know why they sell it to cat owners it's terrible

    Not happy!

    By on

    We bought 5 of these and they are junk! You can’t keep track of your dog when they keep going dead or the app doesn’t detect them. I’m very disappointed. After all the money I paid for this junk. I DO NOT RECOMMENDED IT!

    Limited Capabilities

    By on

    I read the reviews and yet still ordered one. Even though most of the reviews are correct, I wanted to just learn and experience the concept of having a bluetooth connection to my dog. I live in rural Oklahoma on 40 acres. I wanted to see if the DOTT would help me locate my German Shepherd during those times he might wander during a walk. Even when all elements were connected and working, I would only be informed when my dog was out of range. There was no indication of WHERE he was out of range - just my address. When my dog came closer, the app would let me know he was in range again - but honestly, I could hear him running and panting my way. My eyes and ears were a better tool/app I read the reviews and yet still ordered one.

When my dog came closer, the app would let me know he was in range again - but honestly, I could hear him running and panting my way. My eyes and ears were a better tool/app. Within days the app stopped connecting to the DOTT. I could get it to work again after re-seating the battery. This was probably due to my dog splashing around in creeks and ponds. The price was low so I considered the experience to be worth the cost to me. I did not ask for a refund, but I might have considered it if I had saved the box and packaging. I knew it was only bluetooth technology. I would have been satisfied if I could have at least known the direction my dog was last connected (North, South, East, West). I would also have been happy to have some kind of signal intensity - even a beeping sound to give some kind of indication of how close or far the pet is even when in range. But perhaps these are the limitations of bluetooth. Do not consider this product if: 1. You live in a rural setting - This product might be useful in a more urban setting where there is a higher possibility of social network (This product relies heavily on a network of other users with the same app) 2. You do not have an iPhone - My android phone was missing several features that were on my iPhone. The most important feature missing was the "find my pet" feature. The android app is basically just a walk/pet care tracker. The app would sometimes stop working on both android and apple products. DO consider this product if: 1. You live in an urban or suburban setting 2. You have lots of friends and family with the same app 3. You have an iPhone 4. You want to tinker around with the idea of a pet locator. … more

    Found my dog!

    By on

    We actually had a close call the other day when Molly got scared when someone started honking at the corner of the dog park. She ran off and we chased after her but we couldn't catch up. Luckily she had the tag, so we were canvasing the neighborhood looking for her. We also sent a request in DOTT app for help too, and then we got an alert of her whereabouts in the app. We went there and kept searching. Found her finally! I would recommend this product! Thank you DOTT!
