#9 PetFon Dog GPS Tracker
WHY WE LIKE IT: The PetFon Dog GPS Tracker allows you to record your voice onto the tracker and play those recordings from the dedicated app when needed, which provides the unique ability to communicate with your dog even when it’s out of hearing range.

- Built-in color LED lights

PetFon’s GPS tracker has a number of unique features. It relies on a combination of GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth to keep track of your pet’s location. It comes with three main components: a portable charging box, a controller, and the tracker. The controller and tracker are both extremely lightweight and compact, measuring just over a 1.5”x1.5” square shape. While the owner keeps the tracker on them, you can still fully monitor and control everything through PetFon’s mobile app. This system simply makes it so you don’t have to pay monthly fees or a subscription.
The tracker has a range of up to 3.5 miles away, depending on the density of the area. One of the coolest features is that you can pre-record voice commands on the tracking device. The app then gives you the ability to activate and play that audio through the tracker’s hi-definition speaker remotely for your dog to hear. This is a very useful feature for communicating with your pet when out of hearing range. Additionally, the tracker has built-in LED lights that help increase visibility.
#10 Link AKC Plus Dog and Cat GPS Tracker
WHY WE LIKE IT: Link AKC Plus Smart Tracker has a beautiful, stylish look with its leather exterior that sets itself apart from most trackers. It provides powerful health insights — including temperature monitoring and vet record storage — that prove you don’t have to sacrifice functionality for looks.
- Device clicks seamlessly onto matching collar
- Remote sound and LED light feature
- High-quality, waterproof leather
- May be bulky for small pet
The leather exterior and streamlined design of the Link AKC Plus dog and cat tracker look fantastic. Link uses the same high-quality brown leather on the actual tracking device and its compatible collar. When attached, the curved shape of the tracker looks as if it’s actually a part of the collar. The leather has been waterproofed so that it stands up to whatever your pet gets into.
This tracker is much more than just looks, with a dedicated mobile app that offers real-time tracking, activity monitoring, and goal-setting. The tracker also takes note of the temperature to make sure that it’s not too hot or cold for your pet. You can also store your dog’s and cat’s vet records in the app and set reminders for future vaccinations and appointments.
