Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately it still isn’t very accurate... last night it told me that my dog was about a mile away from home all the way at a nearby hotel. I freaked out called my boyfriend and asked if he had our dog and he’s like yes of course I do. He’s sitting right here next to the couch. Not only was he still on our property but he was also in WiFi range. My property is 2.5 acres so it’s not tiny but apparently , whistle app still thinks that it’s too small of an area to be able to cover 🤔
I love it because it does tell me if he’s missing , like one time my boyfriend took him to work with him at 3 am!!! But it’s still super glitchy. And when there is no WiFi, it freaks out. And unfortunately the signal of gps is pretty poor. I do recommend having something, anything like this on a dog for any given as a just in case. This is the most economical once you do the 2 year fee.
I do really like the new features they have developed. They tell me what time he’s sleeping and when he was awake. Where he “went” is a little off but it was a little better. And the notifications is a little pick and choose. The tracking is currently nonexistent and I would like to see that fixed a little more quickly. But otherwise it’s kind of like a generalization. You dog is possibly gone ....

The older pet tracker versions that Whistle offered were good, but the new Whistle 3 adds some well-thought-out improvements. The app is a bit more user-friendly, but the important improvements are in the device. It is smaller, lighter and more responsive than the older models. Plus, the home boundaries can be easily set in the app to match the property line - or any other dimension if you want. For me, this means that if my pet steps off the property I quickly get a notification. In my area, the coverage with AT&T is much better than the Verizon coverage on the old service and I get notifications much faster now. The notifications are more precise, too. They say my dog is “300 feet from home near 1234 Elm St.” I live in the city, so the faster, more precise notification could be a live saver. The only weakness, if I can call if that, is that when spending a great amount of time away from home (where battery power is saved by using WIFI), the battery life is less. But, Whistle notifies you when the battery is low and it can be recharged quickly while my dog naps. Last, but not least - Whistle support is wonderful. I have had their products for several years and they are helpful and very easy to deal with.
I want so bad to love it
I’ll focus on reviewing the app and not so much the product. The app is great (when it works). I love being able to see how much exercise and sleep my dog has gotten. When you need the tracker the most I feel like it fails you. I wish somehow there were some way the tracker could work when your pup gets loose in a no service area ☹️ Our husky ran off and we had no way to track her even though this is what we bought the tracker for. The battery life is amazing but quickly dies when it’s not connected to WiFi. It’s like a mini cellphone so I completely understand these inconveniences. I play with the tracker all the time just to test it and whenever I want to update her location ( to practice when my dog gets loose). It literally takes forever to update or doesn’t update at all “We’re having difficulty connecting to Mila’s whistle. Please try again”. I’ve been trying all day! We got home from a road trip 5 hours ago and it still says she’s 141 miles from home lol
I’m right next to the tracker. It has 92% battery and hasn’t updated on or off of WiFi. I’ve restarted the app multiple times as well!

Hi there - thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review about your experience. You are correct that the Whistle isn't able to send updates to your app when there's no cellular connection, which is understandably frustrating. The "difficulty connecting" messages could be related to this or other factors (such as if Mila is indoors where reception is generally poorer). If you like, you can reach out to our support team to check your local cell coverage and diagnose any other concerns you might have! We're available at 855-999-0471 Monday - Friday: 10:00 am - 7:00 pm EST
and Saturday & Sunday: 10:00 am - 6:30 pm EST -- Nicole
