The LINK AKC app is to be used with the LINK AKC smart collar to keep you connected and informed. It's the only collar that has a remote turn on light to be seen at night and remote sound to assist in training. LINK AKC uses advanced GPS, Wifi, and bluetooth technology to track your dogs location, monitor their activity levels, and keep an eye on your dogs health and wellness.

LINK AKC uses Bluetooth, Wifi, and cellular GPS to track and locate your dog. So you can always check in on them whether you're at home, on-the-go, or at work. Setting up digital safe zones is easy and should your dog ever wander off, you'll be the first to know of their whereabouts. Lost dog: You'll be able to pin-point your dogs location so your best friend is never gone too long or too far.

LINK AKC's proprietary three-axis accelerometer identifies, moderates, and learns your dogs movements to track their activity and then provides recommended activity levels specifically for your dogs breed, mixed breed, behavior, size and age. Goals: having consistent daily activity levels encourages both you and your dog to maintain healthy habits. Through the app, you can monitor daily and historical activity levels. Ambient temperature alerts: set up a temperature alert to receive notifications if your dog gets too hot or too cold.

Start a new adventure and record your path so you can always come back to it. Take pictures or videos along the way and share the whole story with friends or family.

Keep an inventory of all your dog's documents – from vaccinations to training certificates. Records are simple to add, just snap a photo and save it to the app so you'll always have it on hand.

When you purchase the LINK AKC collar, you'll receive the Tracking Unit, Collar Carrier, premium leather collar, charging base station (with extra USB to charge your phone at the same time), charging cord, and free access to the app (with an active service plan).

Idea is cool when it’s working


I usually don’t leave reviews unless I am stack with something and looking for improvement. Unfortunately I paid for 3 years of service and that was a mistake, when I simulate loosing my dog moving away from home base app is looking for my dog for 10 min then it crashes, in 10 min dog will be gone in normal circumstances. When I finally start tracking the dog the app will have to be killed and reopen every 2 min because it will freez...it will not go to another screen it’s stack at map and will not update...I get multiple crashes per day at least 10, and no reinstalling app did not help...also I am on my second GPS receiver first one died after firmware release, and again I was without a gps tracker for my dog even I paid for service for 3 years..and no they didn’t give me free month or anything...they shipped the unit and took over 8 days to get it since it left California and I live in NY. This stuff should be replaced and shipped over night...not waiting over week.

Customer service is great!


All in all I highly recommend Link AKC. That isn’t to say I haven’t had issues, so don’t expect perfection, but you will experience peace of mind for your dog that tends to get loose.

This app works well, but does have room for improvement. That’s where customer service comes into play and they have exceeded expectations! I was having serious issues and customer service and IT worked together to monitor the issues and work on fixes for future app updates. The communication I received from Link AKC was just about as good as anything I’ve ever experienced from a customer service department.

I would like to see WiFi integrated in future releases, but my guess is someday that’ll come.

Needs major improvements


The Link app is fine as it is currently, but I needs major development to work efficiently. The location service lags a lot, and often causes the app to freeze and then crash. The base station also doesn’t recognize when the tracker is close to it, because it works primarily of off Bluetooth and cellular systems. It would be nice if there was a way to set base locations using WiFi for better accuracy. The tracker also doesn’t give the most current updates on your dogs activity levels, so it’s hard to gauge if your meeting the minimum activity or not until a few hours after. It would be nice if it was an instant update.

Really it would just be nice if the phone app and the tracker link were more refined.
