You want a dog collar that does it all. The Whistle Switch collar lets you track where your pup is while also monitoring his activity. It combines GPS, Wi-Fi, and cellular tech to track your best friend at all times (only in North America, sorry rest of the world), alert you if he leaves a "safe area", and lets you know if he is getting enough exercise. It even monitors if your very good doggo is licking, scratching, or sleeping too much and offers access to tele-vets. It does require a monthly or yearly subscription to do all this. You'll love it. Your dog, eh, maybe he'll find it a bit creepy?
Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?
Whistle collects personal information on you such as age, gender, hobby or activities, taste or preferences, and geolocation data. They collect your information on your dog like your pups breed, birthday, treatment history, and location too. They also say they may get even more personal information on you from third parties, such as data brokers or social media platforms. And they say they use all this data they collect on your and your pet to do, among other things, targeted advertising. So if you visit one of those big box stores with your pup, that could mean lots of ads following you around afterwards. Finally, Whistle may sell or share anonymized data to third parties. This is a good time to point out that many privacy researchers claim it can be relatively easy to de-anonymize such data, especially location data.
Another thing to consider, this device uses all the tracking and connection tech — GPS, cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. That's a lot of connectivity. That could turn creepy if someone with bad intentions wanted to know more about you and your best friend too. Here’s hoping none of this data gets leaked on the internet where people could learn you and your dog are actually kinda lazy….or worse.
