Activity tracking helps you better manage your dog's wellness.
LINK AKC will recommend a daily activity goal based on your dog's age, breed and size to help you and your family manage your dog's wellness.
With a proprietary three-axis accelerometer LINK AKC tracks your dog's daily movement and learns what constitutes as high and moderate intensity and thus counting towards your dog's daily activity goal. This is similar to human wearables that measure both step count as well as active minutes.
On the daily activity app screen you can see an overview of their daily movement as well as a breakdown of high and moderate activity that counts towards their overall daily goal progression. You ultimately know your dog best and can adjust their activity goal at any time.
For LINK AKC to measure activity it must be powered on and worn on your dog's collar (make sure that the collar isn't too loose so that it can record properly). Activity data is uploaded to the server hourly, to help conserve battery, so you may not immediately see data updated just after a run, walk, etc.
