whistle pet trackerWhistle has become one of the leaders in the GPS pet tracking world.

If you're thinking about getting one of these devices for your dog, there's really no better option than Whistle. Unless you live outside of the United States, this is your best option. If you do live outside the US, then read about Pod Trackers here.

In a world where almost everything can be tracked, and almost everything has an app, losing your dog should never happen.

You might not know this, but 1 in 3 dogs will get lost in their lifetime. When I heard that, I was shocked. But with today's technology, and specifically with a pet tracker like Whistle, you should never worry about your dog getting lost.

America's #1 Pet Tracker

Whistle combines a GPS dog collar, with a mobile app.

As long as you have your phone with you, you can easily zero in on your pet's location. It's pretty awesome.

Within the app, you can create what they call a "Whistle Zone". If your dog leaves this area, you will get a notification. You can then track them from the app.

This zone is 1 of the 4 major features that this GPS collar offers:

  • Custom Zones

    Track a certain location area. If your dog leaves this zone, you will get a notification.

  • Live GPS Tracking

    Track your pet’s movement on a map, just like you do when you’re driving somewhere.

  • Location Alerts

    Receive app notifications or text messages when your dog leaves a safety zone that you choose.

  • Nationwide Coverage

    Whistle uses nationwide GPS technology allowing you to track your pet anywhere in the United States.

It's More Than Just a GPS Tracker

Location is the most important thing to track, and for the majority of pet owners, this is probably the main feature of interest.

However, Whistle does more than that:

You can also track your pet's health in terms of activity and sleep patterns.

Whistle 3New Collar Design:

The collar design is one of the upgrades made to this device in 2017.

It is now 50% smaller, and is recommended for dogs 8 pounds and up. This makes it ideal for smaller pets as well as larger ones, which is a big improvement.

Its dimensions are 1.45 by 1.82 inches, so it's much smaller than the previous model. It fits easily on collars that are up to 1 inches wide. Keep in mind this is an attachment, so it fits on your pet's existing collar.

The other improvement with the collar design is the battery life. It can now fully charge in two hours, and it usually lasts up to 7 days on a full charge.

It's also waterproof with a rating of IP67. Basically, you won't have to worry about your pet running through water, rain or snow.

Overall the design improvements are all beneficial.

Why This All-In-One Collar Is Our Top Pick

Whistle 3 has a bunch of new features that go beyond the design:

Speaking of "safe zones", you can now have multiple zones, which makes tracking them very easy when they're at different locations.

WiFi and Bluetooth can now be used (power save mode and battery life extension), and the free app is brand new. The new app uses Google Maps for faster locating which is more precise.

Whistle 3 is now an all-in-one collar, which means it contains the GPS technology to track locations, and also the ability to monitor activity. No separate collar is needed!

How Do the Subscription Plans Work?

The new collar comes with a 90 day money back guarantee which is great if you're trying these out for the first time.

To get started you will need to purchase the collar itself, and then a subscription plan. The plans cost between $6.95 to $9.95 per month depending on what plan you get.

Remember, these plans are in place because of the on-demand location tracking that Whistle uses through the largest cellular network in the US. Think of the collar as a little cell phone that transmits data across the network. This is why a subscription plan is needed.
