Keeping Track of your Best Friend

Through my ambassadorship with FitApproach, I was given the opportunity to review Whistle GPS Pet Tracker. This post was sponsored by Whistle and Fit Approach. As always opinions 100% my own.

Ever wonder what your dog does while you're gone or how active they are? Sometimes I swear my dog lays in the sun all day. Although Roxy is 7+  she chases squirrels, birds and rabbits all day in our yard, but I still wonder. I mostly worry when someone else is watching her, because her nose can get the best of her. 


We recently received a Whistle GPS Pet Tracker [MSRP: $99.95 currently on sale for $49.95] plus 3 months free service to test. I loved having the peace of mind knowing if Roxy got out while I was gone I would be able to quickly find her!

Features

Live GPS tracking -- GPS tracking allows you to locate your pet at any time. Make sure your pet is where they’re meant to be, and quickly find them if they’re not.

Text and email alerts Receive texts and push notifications when your pet leaves your custom Whistle zone, so you’ll know right away if they might be in danger.

Food & medication reminders Log meals and create medication reminders to help co-parents and caretakers stay on top of your pet's health and nutrition needs.

Monitor health trends Make sure your pet is getting the right amount of activity for their breed and age, and share valuable summaries with your vet as needed.


Let's just cut to the chase. Overall, if you have an escape artist I would highly recommend Whistle GPS Pet Tracker. It will save you the hassle [and embarrassment] of driving up and down your street calling your dog.

Pros:
- Texts alerts when the dog leaves the 'zone.'
- I can easily see how active she's been.
- Now that she's an old lady I can set up vitamin and/or medication reminders
- Peace of Mind --- PRICELESS

Cons:
- False alarm texts... I would receive texts saying Roxy was out of her zone even though she was on her bed. I chalk this up to mountain living.
- It's somewhat bulky on her collar
- I had to charge it every 3ish days -- This is just annoying.

So what will we do after our complementary service is up? I'll probably cancel the service and then activate it when we're out of town since it's only $9.95 a month -- it's totally worth it.

1 in 3 pets will get lost in their lifetime. Whistle GPS Pet Tracker helps make sure your pet always returns home safe. One part superpower, many parts reliable technology, Whistle helps you be the hero your pet thinks you are.
