Dogs are a man’s best friend. But when they get lost, run away or simply become a little too familiar with the neighbor’s yard they can also become man’s biggest headache and heartbreak. There are GPS dog collars but they tend to be clunky, large and might be uncomfortable for smaller pups. Thankfully, the tracker brand Tile has partnered up with QALO and created the QALO TRAQ Dog ID Tag, a stylish solution to our dog location woes.
QALO is a lifestyle brand that created the first ever jingle-free silicone dog ID tag a while back and now they’ve partnered up with Tile to make the location of lost pets simpler for per parents across the country.
“We love dogs, and we love solving problems for our community, so we wanted to create an affordable, reliable way of keeping track of your dog,” said Gregg Angier, CEO of QALO. “As the leading Bluetooth tracking company, Tile is the perfect partner to deliver the technology that powers QALO TraQ, and help us continue to give pup parents everywhere greater peace of mind.”
Almost half of all dogs lost are found locally, so using the Tile app to locate your pet via these tags will be a viable solution in most instances.
All you have to do is clip on the tag to your dog’s collar, sync it up with your free Tile app and you’ve got an easy way to locate your pet if they accidentally escape through the hole in your fence, dash out the front door or escape your grasp during a walk.
The ID tags come in five different styles and are customizable with the dog’s name and your information as well. The tags are waterproof for up to an hour, if you’ve got a pup that can’t be near a body of water without jumping in, and each one has a two-year, non-replaceable battery. The bluetooth range extends up to 200 feet and each tag weighs only 0.4 ounces.
“For nearly a decade, we’ve helped millions of people locate lost items and have heard time and again from customers who have loved using Tile trackers for their pets,” said CJ Prober, CEO at Tile. “Our own customer testimonials prove many people are looking for a lightweight, affordable solution they can set and forget, so embedding our finding technology into a dog tag just made sense, and given QALO’s legacy of creating ultra-durable, stylish dog ID tags that meet the needs of dog lovers and dogs alike, it was clear they were the right partner.”
