Doesn't update accurately I check the duration of our walks, and even though I walk my dog upwards of 20 minutes per walk + at least 40 minutes with the dog walker, the software only shows my dog as having walked 15-20 minutes, sometimes less. This device is not accurate for measuring how much exercise your dog is getting per day.
Love it! Love this app! Been great to be more aware of my dogs activity especially during winter when she can't get out for her long evening walks and has motivated me and we have played more at home rather than just sitting on the sofa together! Really has helped us keep her active and she seems so much happier!
An Owners Dream Come True What have we been missing! This smart little device has made being a better dog owner easier. We have a happier German Shepherd and we're getting healthier trying to stretch her goals and match them with our own smart wear. One day I'm going to dig deep for the GPS version which I really wish we'd opted for but still... Utterly fantastic! Thank you Whistle :-)
Helped find my stuck dog... Had trouble when my neighbor began leaving fattening treats out for her(?) dogs. He ran with 5-6 dogs in our rural neighborhood but would usually stay in an area near our house. Well he decided he liked her house better because of the food and I didn't want him stealing or getting fat. We got the tracker and tied him up some in the morning during feeding. I had an anchor and he pulled it out, getting stuck in the woods after dragging around brush. With this, I followed the icon where I was to him.
Works well.....most of the time I appreciate this technology as someone who has a puppy that likes to sneak away when his exercise needs are not met. In the two times this has happened since whistle, we were notified in an extremely timely manor an approximation of his location in the neighborhood. In that case it has been a wonderful safety net for even the sweetest of hounds (most of the time). My qualms include random notifications that our buddy has left the whistle zone when he is clearly still in his pen and confusing app interface.
It just sucks! Sorry many problems with this app it's hard to know where to begin.One star is being generous. It does not get our address correct and this impacts its ability to function properly. Support promises to have it fixed, but until now, it remains "broken." At times, it tells me one of our dogs is "...out of the Whistle zone," when they are sitting right next to me at home! There are more problems but they do not give me enough space to list them. Needless to say looking for an alternative at this time.
