Whistle Go Pet Tracker

Review Date 10/23/2019

Have you ever thought, "I need a fitness tracker for my dog?" If so, this is the product for you. This little doohickey attaches to your dog's collar and lets you track where she is while also monitoring her activity. It combines GPS, Wi-Fi, and cellular tech to track your pup at all times, alert you if she leaves a "safe area", and lets you know if she is getting enough exercise. It even monitors if you pup is licking, sleeping and scratching. You'll love it. Your dog might find it a bit creepy.

What could happen if something went wrong

This product does meet our Minimum Security Standards. It also shares data with third-party business in order to target you with advertising. Another thing to consider, this device uses all the tracking and connection tech--GPS, cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. That's a lot of connectivity. As the company says, "Know more than ever about your best friend." That could turn creepy if someone had bad intentions.
