We believe this could very well be the technology of the future when it comes to dog ID tags. These slide on dog ID tags with a PetHub Link QR code offer you the ability to keep up to date information on your dog. As you know it can be a huge problem if your information on your dogs collar is outdated. This technology solves this problem by offering you a profile page that you can update with any information you'd like (New address, New Number, Alternative Contacts, Medical info, ect..) any time via the internet.
When your QR Code Pet ID Tag arrives it includes a unique web address and QR code that can be scanned with any Smartphone (such as Apple iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Microsoft Windows Mobile, and others).
Here's how it works: someone finds your pet. They try the phone number and you're not answering. They scan the collar with their phone or type in the web address. What shows-up are any details you've chosen to enter about your pet, including other emergency contacts (spouse, neighbor, friend, vet, pet sitter, doggie daycare, etc.), important medications, dietary needs, and anything else you think someone rescuing your pup or kitty needs to know.
Here's why it's cool: because the QR code and web address are both pointing to a free PetHub Link profile about your pet on PetHub.com, you can change important details (contacts, medications, etc.) as often as you like without requiring the physical tag to be updated! (Yes.. in case you're wondering.. that is cool. Nay, SUPER cool!) Also, when someone scans your pet's QR code, you will be notified via email and if they have GPS enabled on their smartphone, you will receive a GPS location map of where the scan occurred. Very, very cool!
Remember, the data stored about your pet on PetHub.com that these collars point to is free (no weird hidden costs, no sign-up fees, no annual fees for the basic storage and linking to your PetHub Link collar or tag).
*Please note that we cannot make multiple QR code collars with the same code but multiple codes can link to the same PetHub profile page.
*The collar must have one strap available without a buckle or hardware that will interfere with the tag sliding on. Simply insert the collar strap into one hole, run it behind the tag and out the other hole. It's that easy to install.
