Our canine companions (aka fur babies) are as important to us as our human children and as such, pet parents like to know where their dog is at any given time. We’ve seen Bluetooth enabled pet tags that can alert you when your pet leaves a designated area, but the LINK AKC Smart Collar looks like it could be the ultimate pet tracker.
The LINK AKC Smart Collar pairs a wireless GPS-enabled collar with an iOS / Android app developed by AndPlus that allows the pet owner to see their pet’s location on demand from anywhere.
The collar has a two-piece design that includes the buckled collar and the wireless GPS module. The module not only tracks the location of your dog, but it has other built-in features like a remote controlled light, temperature sensor, activity monitor and even an audible alert that can be used for training purposes.
The mobile app shows the pet’s location, daily activity, and can be used to record walks that include pictures that you snap with the phone when you’re on your daily adventures.
The Link AKC comes in 4 sizes to accommodate different sized dogs. They will even let you upsize to a larger collar if your dog outgrows the first one you purchase.
The price for the Link AKC Smart Collar is $179 with a $9.95 monthly fee for the GPS service. You can save on the monthly fee by paying for a year or even two years up front. For more info about the Link AKC Smart Collar, visit linkakc.com and you can order one through Amazon.
