The new Whistle app only supports the latest Whistle 3 GPS location & activity tracker and Whistle FIT (in partnership with Banfield Pet Hospital).
Introducing the new Whistle 3, our latest all-in-one GPS location & activity tracker for dogs & cats. The new Whistle 3 app has been completely redesigned based on real-life user experiences with pet loss and activity tracking.

Get an email, app or text notification when your pet leaves their safe place, before they get too far.

The app's improved geo-fencing feature means pet owners can now create multiple safe places for the home, office, or a dog-friendly vacation spot (Wi-Fi is recommended).
• Track Activity •
Track your pet’s daily activity, distance, caloric burn and rest to keep your companion in great shape for their age, weight and breed.
• Set & Manage Goals •

Whistle setup requires a working internet connection, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. iOS 10 or newer is required. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
The older pet tracker versions that Whistle offered were good, but the new Whistle 3 adds some well-thought-out improvements. The app is a bit more user-friendly, but the important improvements are in the device. It is smaller, lighter and more responsive than the older models. Plus, the home boundaries can be easily set in the app to match the property line - or any other dimension if you want. For me, this means that if my pet steps off the property I quickly get a notification. In my area, the coverage with AT&T is much better than the Verizon coverage on the old service and I get notifications much faster now. The notifications are more precise, too. They say my dog is “300 feet from home near 1234 Elm St.” I live in the city, so the faster, more precise notification could be a live saver. The only weakness, if I can call if that, is that when spending a great amount of time away from home (where battery power is saved by using WIFI), the battery life is less. But, Whistle notifies you when the battery is low and it can be recharged quickly while my dog naps. Last, but not least - Whistle support is wonderful. I have had their products for several years and they are helpful and very easy to deal with.
Love the Whistle 3
After a neighbor attempted to what we believe steal our dog we looked into various products and took our chances on the Whistle 3 and it’s everything it said it would be. My husband, me and the kids all love being able to track him or call him back into the yard. Love that you can set up multiple home locations as well for him so if we are at the neighbors with him it knows not to alert us. Love that we can track him anywhere! I wish there was a push button to tell the app you are taking him for a ride or a walk so it doesn’t keep telling you that he has left the yard, but I turn off the notifications and then turn them back on once back at home. If you consider the amount of money you would pay to have your dog returned to you if lost or the ability to find him if stolen, this is very little money to spend. Well worth the peace of mind!
Great App & Pet Tracker
I previously had another brand of Pet Tracker and this one was recommended to me. I have used it for 3 weeks and it’s great. The app is great, and the battery life far exceeds their 6-10 day website expectations. I have used the device for 15 full days and the battery is on 61%. I think I will get about 30 days out of the battery before having to recharge. Our dog is at the house most of the time, so it’s in WiFi range and goes on a walk once a day. I have the GPS poll time set to 3 minutes (fastest option) so we get detailed route maps.
The only thing I would like to see improved is the live tracking should be faster. Live tracking is only a location refresh every 60-90 seconds for me in full cell signal areas. I hope with time and updates this will be much faster.
