The American Kennel Club is joining the pet technology industry with the introduction of the Link smart collar this week. Like similar pet wearables, the Link allows you to track your dog’s activity levels and GPS location from your phone. What sets this smart collar apart from the rest, however, is everything else.

From consolidating vet records and healthcare reminders, to a built-in LED light, to temperature alerts that let you know when your dog may be in an environment that’s too hot or cold, the Link has some pretty outstanding bells and whistles.

While its list of “smart” features is impressive, the Link itself is one good-looking collar! Made from Latigo leather, it’s designed to withstand whatever adventures you and your dog might undertake (it’s even water resistant up to 3 feet). The tracking unit is also removable and designed to fit any standard size collar, which is a pretty awesome bonus if you ask me. Speaking of size, the Link is available in a wide range of sizes, accommodating dogs with neck sizes of 9 inches all the way up to 25 inches!
