The PuppComm with its component parts (the sensor, the app, the window stickers, BSCUIT,
the K9 Weather Vane) is a system designed to allow you to spend more stress-free time with
your dog by always knowing that your dog is safe. Here are some tips, so that you can get the
maximum enjoyment from your time with your dog – and with your PuppComm.
Setting up the PuppComm
Make sure that you fill out the information about your dog, specifically the breed and the age, so that the PuppComm can set the recommended alert thresholds accurately. Take time to understand the thresholds, and, if you are particularly concerned, you can adjust them to reflect your own comfort levels.
In the vehicle
- Check the battery levels frequently – and recharge the PuppComm sensor before
levels get low.
- To get the best readings, make sure that your sensor is out of direct sunlight.
- Keep the sensor in the same spot – and away from where your dog spends most
of his time when you’re not there -- whenever you use it, so that readings will
always be consistent.
- Remember that, if you have more than one dog of different breeds, BSCUIT sets
the alert thresholds at the level for the dog with the greatest sensitivity to heat
or cold, so that, if for example you have a St. Bernard and a Chihuahua (unlikely,
we know), you need to be aware of the thresholds for the dog(s) actually in the
When you’re away from your dog
- Make sure that your phone is on – and that, if you are in “silent” mode, that you have the phone where you will know when alerts arrive.
- Be aware of how long you need to get back to the vehicle – and, if you’re in a situation where you can’t control the time (e.g., standing in line or waiting for the check in a restaurant), don’t wait for the alerts, but check the PuppComm proactively.
