Support for the all-new Whistle GO & GO Explore - the ultimate health + location tracker for pets.
Ratings and Reviews
I don’t have the most advanced Whistle (I DO plan in getting it). My little dog is super active. We walk 3-6 miles per day and he would love to do more. We walk in some large parks that include fairly primitive areas and I love that Whistle calculates his activity for me so I can keep him healthy.
He’s chewed up his whistle once (how does a dog manage that when it’s on his neck!) and I’ve lost the rubber piece that attaches it to his collar once. Each time Whistle support has responded quickly with replacements.
I’ve guess I’ve had great luck with the battery on my Whistle! I charge less than once a week. Of course it doesn’t “track”. But I’m so impressed with this product and company I’m going to upgrade to the Whistle 3 as soon as the next upgrade is released. My dog Is extremely curious - at the park and in the neighborhood and is super cute: 9 lbs, white and red spots, curly poodle hair, crowned with round brown eyes and long curly ears. A child’s idea of that doggie in the window so I’ve been warned he wouldn’t last long unattended outside without me. I’ll trust Whistle to help me find him should something happen.
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.
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 ....
