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!  🙂

Ive 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 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 plastic 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 @doggonenz 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!

Rachel, Auckland

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 to be able to try out this service!

Wendy, Auckland

Loving our new Doggone tags!

Nicky, Lower Hutt

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

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.

Helen, Lower Hutt

Our tags are working really well – your customer service is amazing.

Michelle, Lower Hutt

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

Thank you so much for your help. It’s great to see the bugs getting ironed out in these tags as I think they’re awesome. You’re doing an awesome job! Thanks for hanging in there ☺

Heather, Lower Hutt

Thanks for the upgraded tag – it’s working really well. Awesome responses and great response time too!

Dan, Lower Hutt

The system is very good and I want to see it succeed. Great customer service.

Councillor Chris Milne, Lower Hutt

Having just been reunited with my dog, I’m so incredibly grateful. Thank you for making this service!

Grant, 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.

Sandy, Lower Hutt

It was incredibly stressful when we lost our dog in Nelson over Christmas – it was amazing to get her back so quickly, and what a relief.

Mandy, Lower Hutt

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, Hutt Valley

I think these should be compulsory when registering your dog anywhere in New Zealand.

Carla, Hamilton

It’s very good. I think all dogs should have it.

Clare, Stokes Valley

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, Stokes Valley

Great tool for knowing we can find our pets if they go missing. So cool council is trialing.

Linda, Stokes Valley

Fantastic idea!! So reassuring to have for our fur baby. Love it!

This is a fantastic service, I really hope it is continued and extended beyond the trial area.

I think it is a great initiative.

John, Stokes Valley

Please keep it going as it’s going to make a huge difference.

Maria, Hamilton

We had a legitimate return due to the doggone tag on Bella last night, not knowing that she had escaped. It was brilliant!

Michelle, Stokes Valley

Awesome idea!!

Rhys, Hamilton

Great programme. Should be all over the world.

Maritza, Hamilton

Love Doggone!

Bryony, Hamilton

Awesome idea! Not only for locating your dog if they go missing but it’s also quite nice to be able to check the app throughout the day to see that they’re still safe at home.

Laura, Hamilton

Great idea.

Carolyn, Hamilton

All councils should consider using Doggone it’s the BEST idea!
