Understanding Your Link: Complete Customization

Did you know the Link GPS dog collar is designed to be customized to each user’s lifestyle and preferences? When we set out to create the industry’s best dog GPS tracker and activity monitor, we knew that would require the option to adjust how the system functions on a case-by-case basis. No two households operate on the exact same routine and no two dogs are the same, and the Link needed to be adaptable to the individual needs of each Link Pack family.

Here are a few ways you can customize your Link system to seamlessly fit your needs and habits.

Step Calibration
When you first begin using your Link, you may notice your dog’s steps seem too high or too low based on the activity you know they engaged in that day. As with any step counter, the Link will need to be calibrated to match your pup’s size and stride.

We’ve made it easy to adjust your dog’s step calibration to match your pup’s stride. Much like humans, dogs have different strides based on their size and gait. To adjust your pup’s step calibration, open your Link app > Profile > Step Calibration > and adjust the slider to calibrate your Link device to your dog’s stride for more accurate step reporting.

Away Alert Settings
You can now choose how responsive you’d like your Link system to be based on your dog’s habits and your family’s lifestyle. In the Link app under Profile > Away Alert Settings, you’ll find a slider where you can set your Link system’s sensitivity on a range from low to high.

Setting your away alert slider to “high sensitivity” will send the initial away alerts within 1-2 minutes, while the “low sensitivity” will send the initial away alerts within 5-7 minutes. For those pups prone to testing out their latest escape plan, we recommend setting your Link to the highest sensitivity while those who favor couch naps over adventure may prefer a lower setting.

Heartbeat Light 

One of the features on your Link is the heartbeat light. By default, your Link device will flash teal to indicate it is powered on and accurately tracking your pup. But did you know you can customize the light to a wide variety of color options in app? Additionally, you can turn the light off – which is especially useful if your dog sleeps in your bedroom at night.

Simply open the app and tap Profile > Heartbeat Light > and select your color.
