New Pet Digital ID Tag Technology w/ QR Scan & GPS to Track Lost Dogs, Cats Plus GIVEAWAY Ends 4/29

Technology for Dogs & Cats
Giveaway details below



Recently there has been some very exciting news for the cat and dog worlds. What transpired is a historic partnership forged between an Australian quality pet accessory manufacturer called Red Dingo and PetHub, an innovative business in the Seattle area focused on reconnecting lost pets with their owners via the tapping all the power of current and new technologies.

Dexter models a RedDingo PetHub QR Digital Pet ID Tag Style
The result is the trendy new Red Dingo Pet Adventure QR Pet Tag powered by PetHub's digital ID platform offering a unique QR code for each dog or cat. This is designed so that it can be scanned when your animal is found, automatically linking the finder to an online account that stores the contact and pet profile information needed to reunite you with your four-legged friend.  

Optional add-on capabilities offered for nominal annual additional fee include the functionality to track your beloved pet with smartphone GPS and emergency insurance coverage to cover your animal's injuries while lost as well as the ability to help pet owners send out shelter alerts when their animal goes missing and to share PetCards with your trusted circle of pet care providers.

We received this Red Dingo PetHub QR ID Tag Skull & Cross Bones style
Dexter, our family's Miniature Pinscher (AKA Zwergpinscher and Min Pin), isn't just a Houdini in the house with all his secret hide out places. He is an escape artist that gets out the door too frequently and can even out run Olympic athletes I think. 

So, I was glad to learn recently that a new kind of dog ID tag with advanced technology now exists and was even happier when PetHub sent me their Skull & Cross Bones tag in Black to test out on my little 10-pound speed demon.

Don't let this shot of him sleeping fool you, Dexter can outrun any of us
The tag arrived via First Class Mail quickly. Soon after receiving it I completed the short and easy to fill out online form with basic information, uploaded a JPG of my little guy and activated his one of a kind QR code -- all in less than 5 minutes. Then, to see if this really worked I scanned his tag with the QR app that I have loaded on my iPhone and within seconds I was connected to a picture of Dexter and the contact information one would see if they had been the one to find my pup.

Luckily our Min Pin didn't chase the mailman the day this arrived
Obviously he didn't actually get away for the test. I'll give you an update the next time this fast four-legged fellow takes off -- and I don't think you'll have to wait long based on his past track record -- and tell you how the GPS function works that comes as an option with the Silver upgrade I received from PetHub. In the meanwhile, read on for more about where to purchase these nifty pet-tracking inventions, the tag styles you can choose from and the various service upgrade add-ons available.

The new Red Dingo PetHub enabled tags may be purchased at 50 select retailers and will be completely rolled out in the U.S. and Canada by Summer 2012.
