Whistle – Digital Pet Tracker
My first dog — a Siberian Husky — was a runner. Every time we’d open the fence to put the car in, he’d bolt out the gate, and every time he ran off, he’d find his way back home — mostly because he was hungry. Dog apps were non-existent back in my day. Now, thanks to Whistle, you can track your dog’s every move and location. Each Whistle App is free, and only charges users the equipment needed (about $99). What’s great about Whistle is the pin-point accuracy in locating your dog, while providing live, real-time data in helping you know your dog’s every location. Users can set boundaries that if your dog ventures outside these zones, Whistle will trigger its notification system.
Your dog can be a handful, but thanks to these helpful apps, you can keep your dog safe, happy and well trained.
