2020/2021 tags for Hutt City Council dog owners expire on 30 June 2021.
Anyone can use Doggone’s free 4133 text service to help reunite a dog with its owner – whether they have the Doggone app on their phone or not. By simply texting the six digit registration number that is displayed on a dog’s Doggone registration tag, to 4133, they will immediately receive the emergency contact number for the dog’s owner by return text. This number will be nominated by the dog’s owner when they set up their dog’s Virtual ID profile.
Next generation tags will be available direct to the public, and will be available late 2021.

In just 20 months, we’ve helped over 1500 owners and their pets reunite. Here’s what a few of those happy owners had to say about their experiences.
We had just headed away for a long weekend break, but when we arrived our dog bolted as soon as the car door was open! We looked high and low, called out to him, but no luck. Not long after that we received a phone call from someone saying he had turned up at their place. They had followed the instructions on Charlie’s Doggone tag and were linked through to our phone number straight away. We were so relieved! It could have been a completely different outcome as we weren’t in our home town. Thanks Doggone
Pam, Lower Hutt
I wanted to share my positive feedback and gratitude for the wonderful Doggone app and reunite service. It has saved me stress, time and money – not to mention saving time and effort for the good people that have found Sandy when she’s gone wandering as they’ve been able to get in contact with me immediately through Doggone’s reunite service.
I’ve really appreciated the number of times I’ve been quickly reunited with my beautiful girl Sandy – the service is just brilliant and something that every caring dog owner should have for their pet.
When on holiday on the West Coast recently, our dog managed to lose his new collar, Council tag and Doggone tag. This was going to be a time-consuming, and expensive process, to replace the collar and Council tag. We were thrilled to receive a call from the team at Doggone advising that someone had contacted them when they found Bonaparte’s collar and we are getting it all sent back to us. What great news for us, and we’re thrilled to see how this system worked to help us out – not only does it reunite lost dogs, but also lost collars! (Note the photo is after he lost his collar!)
Our dog never wandered so we didn’t think we would need this service, but we got it ‘just in case’. Then one day last week he got out when someone left the door open by mistake. Thanks to Doggone, we got him back really quickly.
Peter, Lower Hutt
Thank you Doggone for ‘being there’ a couple of cold and dark nights ago when my lab, Sandy, went outside for what I thought would be a quick pre-bedtime pee! When she didn’t quickly return, I worried, got in my car to look for her, but in the meantime received a message from you telling me of her whereabouts which was a huge relief.
Thank you Doggone for once again being able to put my mind at rest so quickly. We live in the midst of native bush in an area where we do not have fences or gates and whilst we try to constantly supervise Sandy’s whereabouts, at times she does get away with following her nose.
Marian, Lower Hutt
We love this idea! Our Teddy loves going for lone walks …. and we were so grateful to get him back the other day when someone came across him and used Doggone’s free text service to get in touch with us. I love that it doesn’t cost anyone anything to help out. Brilliant!
I have a wanderer, and when gates or doors get left open accidentally, it sure doesn’t help!
Doggone is a fantastic idea and I love how I can change the contact phone number so quickly in the App. I’m often away for work, so can quickly update who is looking after our dog while I’m away.
Doggone speeds up the whole process of reuniting a lost dog and stops dogs ending up in the Pound, which no pet owner wants!
It’s a great service and gives peace of mind to know that anyone in the community can help reunite a dog with its owner. We were so grateful when we got Red back through Doggone’s service!
Alison, Lower Hutt
Although I haven’t lost my current pet, I did lose a pup many years ago and still remember the stress of walking streets, door knocking, and contacting the Pound to see if anyone had found him. Turned out he was down the road in a house playing with kids … but it took me four hours to find him! Doggone would’ve made it a five minute job to retrieve him.
I’m very happy to have access to Doggone’s service now for my dog.
Dianne, Lower Hutt
I often tell friends and get them to try the Doggone app and the text service. It worked great and helped us to locate Carson when he went missing.
Keith, Lower Hutt
If a dog goes AWOL, it’s good to know that there is a way to quickly reunite them with their owner.
We were able to reunite a friendly lab with its owner earlier this week and it was so quick and easy. I like that we could access the owner’s number straight away – it is so much faster than having to take a dog somewhere to have the microchip scanned (if it even has a microchip), or to have to wait for animal control to arrive. We’ve done this before and it was a long process! Also, love that we saved the owner $$ and stress as their dog wasn’t impounded!
Shelley, Lower Hutt
I’m a dog walker and am encouraging my clients to look at your Doggone app and tags. It could be of use on the odd problem dog at off-leash areas.
I like how the App can be used by the owner to update the details about who is looking after a dog when they aren’t with them.
Amy, Lower Hutt
Anything to help an owner be reunited with their missing dog is amazing. It can be a very stressful and emotional time – which I know through personal experience. We were extremely grateful to get our pup back so quickly – thanks Doggone!
Kate, Lower Hutt
The Doggone tag is a lot cheaper than if your dog ends up in the Council Pound! Luckily we were able to avoid that thanks to our girl wearing a Doggone tag.
Lucy, Lower Hutt
For pet owners there is nothing scarier than losing a pet, so being able to be reunited with them quickly is priceless. We were so happy to be able to continue with the Doggone service when we shifted away from the Hutt Valley – especially as we’ve been reunited and know how well it works.
Doggone has kept our Choccie safe. She occasionally likes to sneak off for a wee adventure… nothing too far, but she’s little, and not very worldly wise. And, just recently, she did it again… Well, thanks to Doggone and a helpful friendly stranger who read and followed the simple instructions on her tag, she was back at home, safe and sound, within just a matter of minutes… Such a relief! Thanks so much Doggone!
Brent, Lower Hutt
An opportunity presented itself to Scooby when a visitor inadvertently left the front door open at home. He wandered off and got caught out in a rain storm. Soaking wet, he made his way a few houses up the street.
Thankfully he was wearing his Doggone registration tag as he was unknown to the person who found him – they had just shifted into the neighbourhood. The good samaritan used the free text service (4133) and Scooby was home safe and sound in no time.
Karen, Lower Hutt
Roxy was outside in the carport safely secured by her lead. However, unbeknown to us, she managed to slip her lead and took off on an adventure. She wandered around the neighbourhood and found a friendly-looking home and joined in on some ‘family time’ in their lounge!
Fortunately, she was wearing her Doggone registration tag so it was a simple matter of texting her registration number to Doggone’s free text service (text 4133) to get her back home with us.
It’s a great service, and it was so good to get her back home safely, and quickly.
Lee, Lower Hutt
Our dog Luna was out of town over the weekend staying with family friends in Kapiti. While there, she managed to jump the fence and head off for an adventure on her own. Luckily Luna was wearing her Doggone registration tag, and the good samaritan who came across her followed the instructions on the tag and texted her registration number to 4133 allowing her to be quickly, and safely, reunited with our friends who were looking after her. We were so relieved.
Freya, Lower Hutt
As the owner of a dog who has previously gone missing, it would have been really helpful to have had an App and service like Doggone around then to help. Responsible owners want to take the best care of their dog, and the peace of mind this service offers is brilliant.
We have been involved with Doggone from the beginning and think it’s a great service.
A couple of times we had a neighbourhood dog escape from its home – luckily they were also wearing a Doggone tag and I was able to contact their owner immediately and reunite them with their dog.
Also, our dog escaped once when a visitor left the gate open by mistake but we get them back quickly through the Doggone tag.
Doggone is such a great tool and one we think would be really valuable to all dog owners.
Michaela, Lower Hutt
It’s uncharacteristic for Charlie to just take off, but he did last Friday night when we were down at the river walking. Our relaxed, together-time, became really stressful when Charlie ‘legged it’ and was nowhere to be seen. As luck would have it, someone came across Charlie, looked at his Doggone tag, saw the ‘If I look lost’ info on the tag and texted his number to 4133. I was instantly notified that Charlie had been safely found – and the rest is history, as they say!
That panic feeling just took over when Charlie took off and I lost sight of him. But happy to say that within 5 minutes I could breathe again with him safe and sound.
Danny, Lower Hutt
Our beautiful dog went wandering again. We are so thankful for Doggone’s service – through it, we’ve been reunited with her a number of times saving money and stress!
Marian, Lower Hutt
We don’t have dogs ourselves, but are very interested in helping reunite them with their owners and keeping lost ones out of the Pounds. We’ve been really pleased to see how well this has worked in Lower Hutt. Well done to the Doggone team!
Chris, Lower Hutt
Thanks again for all your help in getting our fur buddy back home so quickly. We were so stressed and this was an amazing outcome! Awesome responses and great customer service too when we contacted the team at Doggone.
Mark, Lower Hutt
Having Doggone available is just fabulous for us dog owners. So good that anyone can use the service to reunite us with our lost dogs. Here’s a photo of our beauty!
Georgina, Lower Hutt
Loving our new text tag from Doggone. So easy to update details in the App to make sure that we can always be contacted if the unthinkable happens … A bit of a no-brainer really – why wouldn’t you have one for your pet?
We were really happy to be able to reunite a wandering dog with its owner yesterday.
When the dog came on to our property, it was a simple matter of using the free Doggone text service to get in touch with the owner. Having previously seen the stories of how dogs can be reunited using the Doggone text service I was really pleased with how easy and quick it was. It’s such an awesome service, and gives you reassurance that your own dog could be helped, but also that you can help reunite other dogs.
Piki, Lower Hutt
After our Houdini sneaked out when the garage door was open for five minutes, and the two hour stress until we found her – it would have been great to have had the Doggone tag and App then. We’ve got Doggone now, so we’re all sorted if it happens again.
Great app for a pooch that likes to wander given half a chance! Thanks so much for answering my questions – your customer service was excellent!
Danielle, Lower Hutt
I just wanted to thank you for making this service available to everyone now. We don’t know when things are going to happen, and I want her as safe as possible. At least she’s covered in an emergency situation. We’ve heard of so many reunites in the Hutt Valley and we really wanted this service too.
Fiona, Upper Hutt
Thanks for your support on the phone when our dog went missing. We were so happy to hear from someone when they found her and really happy with how well your service worked. Awesome!
This is the start of something big that will make a huge difference for lost dogs! Well done Doggone. Just hoping my dog never gets lost … but just in case we’ve got our Doggone tag.
Sahara wandered off on Friday afternoon and visited an unknown neighbourhood home five or six houses up the street. They simply texted Sahara’s registration number to Doggone’s free text service, and we were able to be quickly reunited with her. This is exactly why we have got Doggone, and it worked perfectly
Harmoney, Lower Hutt
Thank you for your help today when our baby went missing. We got her back really quickly thanks to her Doggone tag. An understatement to say we’re relieved! She is our world!
Lynne, Lower Hutt
Just brilliant! Many thanks for your support today when our dog went missing. Such a relief to have home!
Good to know that Doggone will help keep our wanderer safe. Thanks team!
Out and about on her daily walk in the hills with dad, young Poppy took it upon herself to ‘do a runner’. Thankfully she was only missing for about 20 minutes when we received a call from someone that had come across Poppy and used the free text service that was displayed on her Doggone registration tag.
We were so happy. It was very quick and very easy.
Sally, Lower Hutt
When I was out of town recently and someone else was left in charge, the front door at home was accidentally left open, so Bella took herself for a walk.
While off on her adventure Bella introduced herself to a neighbour four houses down that she hadn’t previously met. Fortunately the neighbour used the free text service (4133) displayed on her Doggone registration tag and we were notified immediately of where she was. All was sorted, and in no time, Bella was home safe and sound.
Lisa, Lower Hutt
Thank you for all of your help in getting my buddy back to me so quickly when he was lost this week. So impressed with the forward thinking of Doggone, and I’m always very impressed with your communication.
Thanks again for all the help!
Thank you so much Doggone. Your customer service is absolutely outstanding and I very much appreciate all your help and assistance. It was super easy to check that my pup’s tag is up and running.
Thanks again for your amazing help and for your service that got my baby home so quickly when she went walkabout!
Joanne, Lower Hutt
We were thrilled when Puddles’ Doggone tag enabled us to be reunited recently. Puddles was spending some time with dad at the office and she managed to wander off. Heading over to Mitre 10 she was found by a good samaritan who used Doggone’s free text service to get hold of us.
We were reunited in no time. It worked perfectly and was really effective in getting Puddles back. Just brilliant.
Sue, Lower Hutt
What a wonderful thing your have set up!
After 40 years of having close personal bonds with my best mate(s) and all the worry and grief that comes when they are lost, you have created something for me so empowering, reassuring and calming in times of stress.
Congratulations and thank you for making life so much easier, and undoubtedly for so many other people in the same situation!
Having lost Taz once before the Doggone app was available, and knowing the stress level experienced at the time, having Doggone to help locate Taz would have been wonderful! We are so happy to have access to this service.
We were delighted to be reunited so quickly with Finn when he took himself for a walk-about on the weekend.
With our house undergoing renovations, and living in a rental property in a different suburb, it was very stressful when Finn wandered away from the property – in an unknown neighbourhood.
Fortunately a member of the public found Finn wandering, and texted his registration number to 4133 – Doggone’s free text service. We were thrilled as we were reunited quickly and safely with the minimum of stress. We were so happy to get him back!
Ben, Lower Hutt
The peace of mind of the text system for anyone who picks her up is priceless to me. I’ve heard of so many reunites through Doggone so I absolutely wanted it for my baby.
I think Doggone is a great idea. Anything that helps getting a lost dog back to its owner has got to be good! We were very happy to receive our Doggone tag!
There are so many posts on community pages about people finding and losing dogs and it is so much easier and less stressful for everyone if the dog is wearing one of these tags.
It’s great because it means the dog avoids ending up in the Pound because the finder didn’t know what else to do. So happy to have these tags available to us now!
My dog hasn’t escaped, but it doesn’t mean he won’t. Same with others.
I’ve seen many dogs wandering or come to ‘visit’ and the owners would have been found much quicker if the dog had been wearing a Doggone tag.
Lea, Lower Hutt
We came across a wandering dog this week and it was a simple matter of texting the dog’s registration number to Doggone’s free text service (4133) – all the details were clearly shown on the dog’s registration tag.
It was really good to see how it worked. We have Doggone registration tags for our two dogs, and it gave us peace of mind to know that a dog can be reunited with its owner really quickly.
We were pleased that we helped in reuniting this dog so quickly and that stress was kept to a minimum.
Tina, Lower Hutt
A visitor accidentally left the gate open which allowed Kensal to head off to explore around the neighbourhood. He made it about 18 doors away before someone in the neighbourhood saw him and used the free text service that was displayed on his Doggone registration tag. We were really thankful to be reunited with him so quickly – it was amazing and couldn’t have worked better.
Mark, Lower Hutt
Sammie, our 15 year old Fox Terrier who never leaves mum’s side, had quite the adventure recently!
When a visitor was leaving our house, Sammie thought that we were leaving with them in the car. Giving chase, she raced after the car until she had to give up. She was found lying down and panting on the footpath quite a way from home.
Luckily Sammie was wearing her Doggone registration tag which has the Doggone free text service with it. A quick call was made and Sammie was quickly returned to us safe and sound.
I can laugh about it now, but at the time I would have gone crazy with worry if Sammie had gone missing for long. I am so very grateful to Doggone and to the person that found Sammie.
Teri, Lower Hutt
Jackie, Lower Hutt
We were quickly reunited with our run-away this morning. Seeing the front door was accidentally left open, he took his chances and was off!
Fortunately someone with the Doggone app saw him wandering and used the ‘Report a Wandering Dog’ feature, which immediately sent a notification to us of where the sighting occurred.
We then also received a call from someone else that saw our dog out and about – that person texted his registration number to Doggone’s free text-4133 service to get in touch with us.
We just loved that we had a happy ending!
Robert, Lower Hutt
We are so grateful for Doggone – our beloved Cees (Case) decided he was a bit over lockdown despite his many walks. He took advantage of distracted kids and let himself out for an extra walk on his own, but luckily it was just a short walk thanks to Doggone.
The find my owner text facility was used by a friendly neighbour in the next street, who texted 4133 with Cees’ registration number and Doggone were able to immediately provide our details to connect us and ultimately reunite us with our big guy!
Contactless collection of course!!
Rachelle, Lower Hutt
While visiting friends in Wellington on the weekend, our beautiful dog managed to head off on an unscheduled wander! Facing an already stressful situation, it was made worse by not being in our own neighbourhood where people know her. We were delighted to be contacted by someone who had found her and used Doggone’s free 4133 text service to get in touch with us. What a relief!
Jane, Lower Hutt
Really happy to have one of these Doggone tags for our BIG cat. Such peace of mind as very much loved member of the family!
When the skies lit up in the Hutt Valley on Saturday night with an early celebration of Guy Fawkes, Snoopy took off in terror, escaping the safety of home.
We were out when she did her vanishing act, and the first we knew that she’d disappeared was when we got a call to say that she’d been found, safe and sound. As it happened, a stranger had found Snoopy, read the free text message on the Doggone tag and texted his tag number to 4133 to get in touch with us. It could have been a very different story!
Jody, Lower Hutt
I was able to easily reunite a beautiful young dog with its owner by using the ‘Report a Dog’ feature. It was a pleasure to be able to help – it’s just about communication, and it was easy peasy. Coco’s owners were so grateful when they got her back.
Kate, Lower Hutt
Thanks for the Doggone tag – it’s working really well. Awesome responses and great response time too from the team at Doggone!
Dan, Lower Hutt
It was great to be able to contact the owner directly when I found their dog so they could avoid the dog pound and the fees that go with it. Thanks Doggone for offering this service so anyone can help.
Sandy, Lower Hutt
I am a very happy puppy-owner having just been reunited with my wee one.
Someone in the community used the Doggone App to mark my pup as a ‘wandering dog’ when they saw her out walking alone. This sent a notification to me through the App showing exactly where she was.
Just so incredibly grateful!
Marie, Lower Hutt
I think these Doggone tags should be compulsory when registering your dog anywhere in New Zealand. Makes it so easy to quickly reunite a lost dog!
Last night beautiful wee Georgie took herself off for a wander – in search of some treats we believe!
The App sent a notification to us of Georgie’s location when she came within proximity of a phone with the Doggone App, and in no time she was back home safe and sound – much to our relief. We were so concerned!
Gary, Lower Hutt
We have heard such great things about Doggone and couldn’t wait to get a tag for our dog who has gone missing before, and this service would have really helped!
Doggone is fantastic! I think all dogs should have it.
Clare, Lower Hutt
Great tool for knowing we can find our pets if they go missing. So cool Council is offering this service to dog owners.
Linda, Lower Hutt
Doggone is a fantastic idea!! So reassuring to have for our fur baby. Love it!
Hayley, Lower Hutt
I think a service like this would reduce the stress of a lost dog. It’s a very easy App and tag to use and would make reuniting families and pets very simple.
Mikayla, Lower Hutt
Really love how the App and tag makes it so easy to protect our big boy. Really reassuring.
This is a fantastic service. I really hope it is continued and extended beyond Lower Hutt so other dog owners can benefit from it.
Kylie, Lower Hutt
All councils should consider using Doggone for their dog registration tags – it’s the BEST idea!
The tag has survived Lab (rador) testing.
Andrew, Lower Hutt
Thank you for creating this app and these reuniting tags. Doggone provides such an easy way to help so many people and their pets!
Thank you so much for reuniting our dogs! This is a much better outcome than bailing them out of the Pound or them getting hurt and I’m so pleased they were found. Thanks again, really appreciated!
Kate, Lower Hutt
We had a legitimate return due to the Doggone tag on our pup last night, not knowing that she had escaped. It was brilliant!
Michelle, Lower Hutt
My dog got out and I was able to track him on the app to see which way down the street he went. By using the app I was able to find him quickly and get him home safe.
Grace, Lower Hutt
I think these should be compulsory when registering your dog anywhere in New Zealand.
Congratulations to everyone on the positive moving forward for Doggone. Because of you guys, all of us responsible and caring dog owners can feel more comfortable with our dog’s security and well-being.
Heather, Lower Hutt
It was incredibly stressful when we lost our dog in Nelson over Christmas – it was amazing to get her back so quickly. What a relief!!
Mandy, Lower Hutt
Having just been reunited with my dog, I’m so incredibly grateful. Thank you for making this service!
Grant, Lower Hutt
Our Doggone tags are working really well – your customer service is amazing.
Michelle, Lower Hutt
I have tried out the Doggone app and think it is brilliant. It means if my dogs go walkabout I can find out where they are immediately and that is very reassuring. I just wish our Council would implement it next July when the registration comes due.
Sylvia, West Melton, Selwyn
We love the Doggone app. It is very accurate in location when we have been out and about and we love the peace of mind it gives knowing that if our dog was to get lost, it’s a quick and easy way of helping find him.
I just wish Wellington City Council would hurry up and get on board with this amazing technology and adopt it for our region, like other regions have. I also love that it can assist other dog owners if their pooch goes missing!
Doggone is a great initiative and their dog tags – that allow traceability of your pup – bring peace of mind. I feel confident letting my Greyhound run along the beach and out in substantially sized parks knowing that I have the Doggone app to fall back on if my doggo runs out of sight.
The app is simple to use, fun to see your pooch on the map, and it’s a simple way to help reunite doggos in the community with their humans.
I hope my Council jumps on board with Doggone soon.
We love that our dog is now wearing a Doggone tag.
We own a Farm and since our dog has been wearing her Doggone tag, we’ve been able to access the app to spot where she’s adventured off to – both my husband and myself have the Doggone App on our phone. I can say without a doubt that we can see where she is right away!
She usually follows and sits with hubby if he’s out the back of our farm while he is doing fencing maintenance. It was excellent … I knew where they were and could take hubby his morning flask of tea without having to scout around for them!
I’ve also watched the app when she went for a ride to town and it has awesome coverage!
I posted feedback in a Pet Group that I am the administrator for. Many of our members have been delighted to hear about Doggone and also wish Hawkes Bay/Central Hawkes Bay would offer Doggone tags. So many lost or missing dogs that are reported on a daily basis could be found faster for their owners.
Maybe in the future Councils could take a look a these tags and realise they’re a valued asset for all dog owners.
I hope the Hutt Council can give out positive feedback to other Councils with these. It would be so worth it.
Thank you sincerely for giving me the opportunity of trying the Doggone tag out … it is so worthwhile to have. Ever so appreciative!
Janece, Central Hawkes Bay
I absolutely love the Doggone tags and the App. It’s user friendly and if you have any issues, the communication with the Doggone staff, in particular Tracy, has been instant, clear and concise.
I have two dogs so it’s been awesome to know that I can track and trace my dogs and you can reunite other dogs with their owners.
We have recently taken on a new dog so this tag has been awesome just in case he bolts out the gate.
Very lucky to have the chance of using the Doggone app and tag even though my (Napier) Council isn’t using it…. yet. Love it! We have checked it works from multiple locations…. very reassuring. Really hope Napier City Council takes up the opportunity to use Doggone. Thank you team
I love how easy it was to set up in the app. All is going really well. The welcome email and Quick Start Guide are very clear and give me confidence that anyone could set one up.
The tag is so nice and sturdy, the printing on it is beautiful and stays on. It just looks really, really good. It is also so nice and easy to put on the collar. I hate the other type of Council tags – they make no sense and are not user friendly. Please tell the Wellington City Council that the days of those types of tag are up. I really hope that we see Doggone tags in Wellington next year. The customer service from Doggone is friendly and fast. Doggone will help everyone locate their dogs and give peace of mind.
Got my Doggone tag yesterday. Have you heard about these? Lower Hutt council are using these registration tags, it is a smart Bluetooth LE device that sends out a signal that can be picked up within 60m of any phone using the app and it has a text service too. You can report your dog missing, or any dogs wandering and get them back home asap. Hopefully it gets rolled out nationwide!
I love the fact that if a dog went missing that the Doggone Smart tag gives options on getting them back as quickly as possible.
Having been in the situation of having my puppy stolen, the technology the Doggone tag provides would have given me more avenues to maybe get her back. I did everything in my power to find her but it wasn’t enough. When you are in that situation, all options available to the owner need to be easy to access because the panic is blinding.
People that adore their dogs will definitely opt for the Doggone tag when registering their furbabies – so many people are interested in a way to track their dog. Responsible owners don’t have an issue on paying money to register their dogs but you don’t see what your money pays for apart from a plastic disc. The Doggone tag makes paying registration feel worth it and I think owners will be jumping at the opportunity to get one of these Smart tags.
Received the Doggone set up in the mail and have gone through all of it – just want to say how easy the instructions were and how fantastic the app is! Super user friendly and really effective. Hopefully the Wellington City Council gets on board and other people will also download the app and get behind it – it’s a great initiative.
I think it’s a great idea to know where your dog is when, or if, he or she gets out of the gate. Love how you can create your dog’s profile with a picture of him or her. I can’t wait for Hamilton City Council to offer it to all dog owners. I love this app and this tag for our fur baby.
I definitely recommend it!
Doggone is so cool! It was so simple to download the App and create the profiles for our two dogs. Everything is working as it should. A big thank you to Doggone – we’re very grateful for this service!
Loving our new Doggone tags!
Nicky, Lower Hutt
Absolutely delighted with the service and that we got our dog back so quickly. It was particularly stressful that our dog went wandering after the Lockdown had started. Really thrilled with the follow-up call from Doggone too, above and beyond.
Lee, Lower Hutt
Brilliant idea and brilliant support from Doggone. Works really well!
Helen, Lower Hutt
Our dogs Stella and George, two canine best friends, went walkabout in Wainuiomata earlier this week were found safe and sound, thanks to the ingenuity of Doggone.
The dogs, who live next door to each other, are best friends, and forever running from one home to another through a gap in the fence. Somehow, they managed to escape the confines of our backyards, and embarked on an exciting, albeit short, adventure together.
Realising our dogs were missing, we went off in separate directions in an attempt to locate the troublesome twosome, but not before marking them as lost on the Doggone App. Thankfully, both Stella and George were wearing their Doggone Bluetooth registration tags. A sighting of them was generated by a phone with the App when it came near the dogs. The sighting was automatically sent to us, notifying where the dogs had been seen, so we were able to head there straight away. Within a relatively short period of time, we were all happily reunited!
It’s such a relief to know that even in a situation where Stella and George go missing, we are able not only to mark them as lost, but have instant notification when they were found, and in such a short period of time. It really takes the stress away from the situation.
Robyn, Lower Hutt
Our three munchkins are so precious to us, that when I heard about Doggone, it was a no-brainer. Just the security of knowing that if they choose to do a runner, we can trace them. I wish I had known about this service earlier as it certainly would have come in handy, and relieved a lot of stress, when they have escaped in the past. Now all we need is the Council to come on board. The more users, the better for everyone. Thanks Doggone!!
Doggone is an incredibly helpful service which I’ve found to be hugely valuable. I was extremely grateful to have this when my dog Wyla, that I’d had for nearly 2 years, learnt how to jump our fence and started escaping whilst I was at work. This happened on a few occasions and thanks to Doggone I was contacted by a friendly local that kept her safe whilst I made my way home to collect her.
Jo, Lower Hutt
It’s hugely reassuring to know that if my dog does ever wander then it’s easy for anyone to get in contact with me.
The team at Doggone have always been a pleasure to deal with, answering my questions and helping me to get my dog’s tag up and running when it first arrived.
I will continue to subscribe to Doggone – it’s a very small cost for the peace of mind and service provided. Thanks Doggone!
Jessy, Lower Hutt
SORRY – CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK
Our developers are working doggedly on the next generation of Smart tags!
The Doggone Smart tag uses Bluetooth to connect with nearby phones via the Doggone app.
Location sightings are generated using that phone’s GPS.
All sightings are date and time-stamped, and sent securely to the pet owner. Sightings are visible only in the pet owner’s app and never on the phone that created the sighting.
You can use the App to mark your pet as missing and you’ll receive real-time notifications of all new sightings of your pet every time it passes a phone with the Doggone app installed – a bit like a bread crumb trail!
Anyone with the Doggone app who spots your pet out alone, can quickly mark your pet as wandering and you’ll immediately get notification of your pet’s location.
What’s more, every Doggone tag has a unique number printed on it, so whoever finds your pet, regardless of whether they have the app or not, can access your emergency contact number by texting your pet’s tag number to Doggone’s free-text reunite service, 4133.
