About this app

Care for your pet like never before with this companion app for Whistle smart devices, including Whistle Fit™, Whistle GO Explore™, Whistle Switch™, and our new Whistle Health™.

Since your pet can’t tell you where they are or how they’re feeling, we created the next best thing—a smart device that makes it easy to track and monitor your pet’s health, fitness, gps location**, and so much more—all from one easy-to-use app!

Whistle smart devices give you a 360º view of your pet’s overall health by tracking and monitoring their unique health-related behaviors, fitness, GPS location**, and more—right from the Whistle app. You’ll get actionable science-backed insights that are unique to your pet, so you can make smart, informed decisions for your furry family member.

*Health Trends*
Your Whistle smart device tracks your pet’s scratching, licking, sleeping, eating, drinking, and overall Wellness Score. If changes in their patterns might point to potential health issues, you’ll get notified so you can take action.

*GPS Location Tracking*
GPS, Wi-Fi, and cellular networks work together to inform you of your pet’s location at all times.

*Customizable Safe Places*
Create boundaries for your pet’s Safe Place locations. Plus, you can manage multiple Safe Places for home, office, or your favorite dog-friendly spots (Wi-Fi is required).

*Escape Alerts*
Get a text, email, or notification when your pet leaves one of your designated Safe Place locations without an approved friend or family member.

*Activity Tracking*
Help your pet get the exercise they need with customized fitness goals based on their breed, age, and weight. Know your pet’s calories burned, distance traveled, minutes active, and more.

*Celebrate Achievements*
Earn badges when your pet meets daily activity goals, reaches new milestones, hits a new winning streak, and much more. Achievements are a fun way to look back and celebrate your hard work together!

*Ask a vet*
Connect to a vet right from the Whistle app.

Create custom reminders to stay on top of daily meds, monthly flea + tick treatments, bi-annual vet visits, grooming appointments, weigh-ins, and more.

Pathetic. Whistle was reliable in 2015-2017 era. But the new whistle devices seem to have trouble getting a signal. If you're lucky you'll get a tracking response after 5 minutes. Usually it's "unable to connect to your pet's device". Today, I switched to tractive, it is so much better. Works on 3 cell networks, gets a signal everywhere that Whistle failed.

I'm about to uninstall this as, sadly, my cat went to Rainbow Bridge recently (she died). The unit was quite heavy/bulky, given her small size, but back when I bought it, it was the best choice. She was strictly indoors, but I had it as extra protection should she ever get out. Its random alerts that she had left home, or was 500' away, etc., were very frightening at first, until I figured out what really happened--my Wi-Fi went out. Overall it worked well, but alerts were slow in coming.

The app has never been foolproof and it does an exceptionally poor job of locating my dog when my phone is not connected to my Wi-Fi or his collar directly via Bluetooth. Kind of the point of having a GPS tracker but I digress. Now, the device loses almost 75% of its battery in a single day, despite having been fully charged. And the whistle app itself is having difficulty connecting to...something - I don't know what - because it's using 40% of my phone's battery and draining it wildly.

What's new

This release is all about notifications!

You can now control notifications per pet. For example, you can have your neighbor's dog in your app and turn off prompts to walk them or charge their Whistle battery.

Journaling has been a huge hit. You can now receive a reminder to journal on a schedule you choose.

Finally, notifications for non-critical things will now only come during the daytime.
