Link AKC Smart Collar
Link AKC Smart Collar was the winner of the CES 2018 Best in Innovation Award; it features an LED light, GPS, and temperature monitoring. It helps you know your doggo's location and well-being. The location tracking uses advanced GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and cellular data, and it is easy to use. You can also use Bluetooth with the Link AKC's base station to create a "safe zone"--the app will send you alerts if your pup wanders out of the range of the designated safe area. $129 plus monitoring.
