Doesn’t work when it’s cloudy
In theory, this Link collar and app are great. There a light on the collar unit to use in the dark, and you can use the app to make it make a sound if you lose the unit. But the darn thing doesn’t work or update if there is one cloud in sky. And it changes when it’s overcast; when I checked this morning it had activity in the bars but wouldn’t register it on the circle. Then in the afternoon I went for another walk with my dog—at a 17 minute mile pace—and only 7 minutes is recorded for a 30+ minute walk. And, it took away the activity from the morning. I mean I guess I have my watch to prove the activity, but this same situation happens almost every time it’s more than partly cloudy. So frustrating. I know, I know—first world problem. And I don’t need the app to tell me my dog is getting his exercise. But it still would be nice if it worked. Oh—and the battery level changes weirdly. One time I checked it, and it said 25%. I went back into the app 10 minutes later to check something else and it said 75%. That’s a pretty big discrepancy and has happened on more than one occasion; perhaps the firmware needs to be updated by the company and then pushed to the units.
Works great BUT
This things has worked great for me, but has not been without its problems.
I have a basset hound and they tend to wander around, So a gps collar is a godsend.
I received the gps collar as a Christmas present, and immediately put it on my puppy. It works for the most part. When she got out of the yard, I know immediately when it sent me a push notification on my iPhone that she was away.
I did the list dog feature, and even though it took a long time to track her, or to get it to update her position, but when I finally got it to work, I was able to go EXACTLY to her location and pick her up.
The biggest problem I have is getting the collar to update its position, but it still for some reason immediately tells me when she is away, or back with me, or back near the hub.
If it can do those things that quickly, why would it be that hard to get the real-time god tracker to update where she is?
I know a lot of these things are the collar connecting to my phone with Bluetooth or WiFi and using my phones gps position to update where she is.
But besides the issues I have had with updating position, it works like a charm, and has saved my puppy getting to far away by alerting me she is away.
I would highly recommend this product if you have a dog who is a super escape artist like mine.
I am positive that with updates they will improve the product.
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.
