132: A Smart Dog Collar That Tracks Activity, Location, Temperature and Adventures
The company, Link AKC, is a pet tech company at the crossroads of fashion, science, dogs and wearables. The company is also backed by the American Kennel Club.
Link AKC is dedicated to improving the connection between dog and owner through the data collected in their soon-to-be-announced debut product; a high-tech and high-fashion smart dog collar wearable. It’s basically the dog version of an Apple Watch/Shinola combo.
After being awarded the CES 2017 award for “Best of Innovation in Wearable Technologies Category” More than location and activity tracking, the LINK AKC™ collar is recognized for its unique design that aims to secure and strengthen the bond between dog and owner.
The smart collar combines the most advanced technology putting your dog’s needs and location right at your fingertips whenever you need it. From Daschunds to Great Danes, the LINK AKC smart collar’s ergonomic curves are designed to comfortably fit small and large necks. And even comes with a puppy guarantee too.
