Win a QtagO QR Code Pet Tag!


Are you tired of making new dog tags every time you move? QR tags are a great way to have all the information you’d like in one online location, just in case your dog should ever be lost. The QR code, scannable by smartphones, makes it easy to keep all your dog’s contact information (and even special veterinary information a rescuer might need to know) online and accessible by the person who finds your dog.

Recently QtagO sent us one of their pet smart tags (they also make special tags for keys, luggage, and medical IDs) for review.

The QtagO tag, priced at $14.95, features a metal tag with instructions on one side and a QR tag on the other. Along with scanning the QR code on the back of the tag, the front also provides instructions for texting a QtagO ID number to a special number or visiting the website to report a lost dog.

Accounts on QtagO are free. You can access your account any time to make changes and updates to your address, add medical information, add friends and family as contacts, etc.

One drawback we saw with the QtagO was that the website on the tag is, a site that’s in French. There is an English flag on the website to reach the English version of the site. Although it’s easy to click the English flag and reach the English instructions, it’s a little worrisome that someone finding a dog might reach the French language site and stop there.

We’d like to know what you think of this new tag! One DogTipper or CatTipper reader will be selected to win a QtagO for their pet!

  • Linda Szymoniak

    The dogs I currently have haven’t ever gotten lost, but I’ve had ones that did and the worry I felt was not something I want to have to go through ever again.

  • Theresa Spaid

    When they were younger they would get out but wouldn’t get lost. I have a fenced in back yard so that doesn’t happen too often

  • Heather Bridson

    Yes..but only for an hour. She somehow managed to open the clip on the tie out cable she was on to go potty. I freaked!

  • sarah oswald

    Yes,I have had my dog get lost before and it was very upsetting.

  • 49tam

    Nope! A few times when I lived at a different house, All of my cats escaped, though they are such strictly indoor beings alls they did was stick close to the house! On both occasions once I’d discovered they got out, I quickly scooped them up exclaiming I never knew they’d got out and how did they do that? And hugging them close to me glad as could be nothing awful had happened to any of them! My cats are now my babies.

    My current dog hasn’t been lost but I had a boxer that wandered off and I never found her.

  • Pat Weldon

    Only one of our dogs has ever disappeared on us. Our neighbour had set out illegal snares and we are sure he trapped one of the dogs. We found another one of our dogs in one of the snares and rescued her. He was reported to the CO for the illegal trapping.

  • Leah Lucas

    No. (Gianna)

  • Joan

    I’m extremely protective of our family dog and attached.
    We did have an Old English Sheepdog and he managed to knock a board loose in the fence to follow another pal. I was heart sick and called everyonee.g. 911, fire, the university police and the ambulance service, I was a nurse in an ER so I had everyone looking for our wonderful dog with no results. I placed his bowl outside the front door and when we went out the next morning he was waiting and sleeping at our front door after his busy adventure. It never happened again.. Fortunately dogs have such a keen sense of smell they usually can find there way home but I certainly hope this never happens again.Rene C

  • Jdace

    No my dogs have never been lost- Thank God!! However, my niece recently moved from Missouri to California with a boyfriend, dog and cat. Her dog got out of her fenced in yard after being there only 2 weeks. She did not have any ID on him. She was so scared and knew she screwed up so I didn’t yell at her. She got very lucky that a mice person found him snd took him to the local shelter. They got him back after missing only 2-3 hours. Whew!! And Road always has his ID on him now!! Yippy!!

  • LyricInTime2803

    Thankfully no!

  • Jennifer P

    My current dog, Vix, has never been lost but my first Springer Carib disappeared for about 4 hours one day in the mountains where I was living. I was never so afraid before or since. Fortunately she wandered home eventually, completely clueless as to thew scare she’d given me. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Bruce Wayne

    My dog will LOVE IT

  • sandy weinstein

    no place to enter the secret code

  • sherry butcher

    Me dog went visiting the next door neighbor without me knowing, but he has never been really lost.

  • Angela Cash

    My dog was picked up as a stray by animal control and taken to the shelter before I fostered, and then adopted her. I take extra care to make sure she is supervised when outside since she has a history of roaming.

  • Ruckus the Eskie

    No but he’s ran off before …to the house in fear of loud noises
