Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. There’s all kinds of wearable tech out there today. One of the best we’ve seen designed for dogs….is from LinkAKC. It’s essentially a shrunken down mobile phone and tracker…that clips onto an included collar. With your smart phone, you can know where your dog is, where and when he or she has been walked, even turn on a light or play a sound that can be used for training. CMO Herbie Calves says it is designed to give owners lots of helpful info…
“Trying to tell them for that dog’s breed, for that dog’s age, this is the recommended level of activity and we’re trying to really chart that activity in a way that’s meaningful as well as far as minutes of moderate and intense activity.”
The device, with a nicely designed leather collar, costs 179 dollars. The service plan can cost as little as 7 dollars a month.
