Typically speaking, most of the devices that will work with Apple’s Find My network are Apple’s own products. We’re talking about iPhones, iPads, AirTags, and so on. However, if you wanted something that could help track your pet’s location that leverages the network, then you’re in luck.
Short of attaching an AirTag to your pet’s collar, a company has created what they’re calling the YIP Smart Tag. It’s being sold by company called PetSmart and it is basically a tracking device designed for your pets. It looks like a regular pet tag where you can even engrave your pet’s name, but it comes with smart capabilities like using the Find My network
For those unfamiliar, how the Find My network works is that it takes advantage of the fact that Apple’s products are pretty much everywhere, so whenever a device comes into contact with another device that has been listed as missing, it will kind of help to triangulate the location based on nearby iPhones, for example, so in essence it’s like crowdsourcing information on a missing item.
However, the problem is that pets might move too fast for nearby devices to ping it. This is versus a lost iPhone that might be lying on the floor or a table and not moving, so your mileage may vary when it comes to being able to successfully track your pets. That being said, if you’re interested in this device, then head on over to PetSmart’s website for the details.
