Over the past year, I have shared my love for Bentley’s Whistle Activity Monitor. I told you when we first began using it, after a few months use and when it went on the fritz. Our new Whistle has been working perfectly and we are still trying to get a champion streak going. Our road trip to Phoenix had me worried about the boys being in the car several hours each day as we traveled. It turned out the Whistle motivated us to take longer breaks to walk them. We also found trails to take them on at our hotel stops. Bentley had more time in each day of the trip than he usually gets at home. His activity time was the highest while we were at the BlogPaws conference. There was a lot of walking and they played in the doggie daycare. *You have a Whistle coupon in your swag bag if you attended the conference ☺
Pierre does not have a Whistle Activity Monitor. We know he gets plenty of exercise between our walks and his constant squirrel or lizard chasing. After an incident at one of our hotels, he will be getting the Whistle Tracker. He nonchalantly walked out of the room and trotted down the walk toward the swimming pool. It is difficult to convey the level of freak that I felt as I flew out the door bellowing “PIERRE” along with some HBO words. I saw his white tail turn the corner of our hotel wing. Obviously, he felt sorry for me flailing behind him like a crazy woman. Pierre came back wondering what the big deal was. It was very frightening for us but we were lucky. How would we have found him in a strange city?
That is where the Whistle Tracker could be a life-saver. It does everything Bentley’s Activity Monitor does but it also tracks your pet’s location. The device is only 1.5” x 4.2” and weighs a mere 1.3 oz. It will fit on a 1” collar or harness.
What can the Whistle Tracker track?
· Your pet’s activity each day along with the time goal you set for them
· Keep track of medications, appointments, and food
· Connect with caretakers so they can monitor the pet and have access to the health information
· Live GPS map allows you to track your dog next door or anywhere in the nation
· Set your Whistle zone to your house, yard or other “safe” place like a daycare
· If your pet leaves the set zone, you will receive an alert through the app or a text message
Both the Whistle Activity Monitor and the Tracker are on sale for $79.00. The Tracker does require a service plan that ranges from $6.95 - $9.95 a month but while they are on sale, you get 3 months free service. I’ll be honest with you; I don’t worry about Bentley running away anymore. He likes to hang close to me and his dad. Pierre would chase a squirrel or rabbit to the ends of the earth or just decide to go exploring. It’s not that he doesn’t love us; it is the Terrier in him. I learned that the hard way a couple of weeks ago. Believe me, as I was explaining to him how bad he scared me; I was secretly cursing myself for not having already bought him a Whistle Tracker! It could have ended much worse than just shaken nerves.
