I purchased the Whistle 3 because one of my dogs jumped my fence a few weeks ago. She was severely injured and had to be put down. I never want one of my pets to experience the horrors of being lost again. I read reviews which said some people had trouble setting up the device. That was not my experience. I set up the device in less than 5 minutes. How it will work if I need it, I hope never to have to learn, but had I been able to track Seraph, she might be home now.
Great dog location and activity tracker. Unfortunately there are many annoyances. 1. Setup of a location needs many tries before it takes. 2. App updates break login so no notifications until re-login. 3. No way to silence location updates when with pet (driving to park). 4. GPS accuracy has decreased lately giving me distance from location alerts in middle of day. Of these items get fixed the device would be much more deserving of the high cost to own.
I only have the whistle fit it's great my only gripe is I wish there was a way to force a sync. It seems the only way is to go in and out of the app like 5-6 times to do so
We have a new rescue dog that recently bolted past wife when the door was open. We went on the search for him using Whistle - it was useless. For 5 minutes the app thought he was in the yard and still on wifi so it would not start tracking and once it started tracking the update was so slow we could not find him using the tracker. Do not buy this.
Would not even connect to Wi-Fi for initial set up. That's just pitiful and sad. What a waste. Time to return!
First I pay for this and now I have to pay monthly for it also? No thank you I'm taking it back
