Apple doesn't recommend using AirTags for pet tracking because if your pet is really off the grid — in the woods or other remote area — that AirTag isn't going to help, since it needs to be in the proximity of other devices in the Find My network which can relay its position.
But that AirTag will help you find your pet if it goes missing in suburbia or another well-populated area. Which is why a lot of people are still going to use AirTags for pet tracking.
Since AirTags were just recently released, there aren't that many pet collars and other pet-specific accessories yet — but that's going to change soon. In the meantime, here's the what's out there.
The DogTag is made of a rubber-like material that holds the AirTag securely in place while fitting around most standard dog or cat collars.
This dog collar has a sleeve for your AirTag. It's made durable and sustainable cork leather, and comes in two different colors: natural cork or black. It's available in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes.
While not specifically designed for pets, this is a magnetic clip that can easily be snapped onto a pet color. It's available in black, white or pink.
If you're looking for purpose-built and custom holders, look no further than Etsy. The AirTag holder hooks to your pet's existing collar. You can also customize it by engraving your pet's name or phone number on the back.
Belkin's key ring is ready made to slip on your pet's collar. It's available in four different colors: white, black, blue or pink.
Apple's leather key ring can be attached to your pet's collar. It's available in three different colors: dark blue, brown or red.
