I thought the device would be heavy for a cat. But it's lighter than other pet GPS trackers. Am happy with it.
After trying another, more expensive tracker, I returned that one for the Whistle. Where as the other was not reliable when my dog was out of wi-fi range, the Whistle does a very accurate job of telling me where she is. I love being able to trace her path all day. I know when she leaves her safe zone, when she returns, and where she has been in between. Nice battery life. It’s small, and doesn’t bother my dog’s neck at all. She’s a Jack Russell and Daschund mix, so not too large of a pup. It can even identify when she’s taking a car ride and tell her to have a good trip via the app. The app is user-friendly, alerts of my dog’s achievements day and over time, and gives me a nice, bold yellow path line with where she is and has been. This is really great when I am at work and just want to see where she is when my wife lets her out. I am also relieved that I can find her when she won’t come when called. She was trapped once under a deck, and we pinpointed and saved her. Would not have found her if it hadn’t been for Whistle.
My cat escapes through the dog door and runs around like crazy. Need to know where he is so I can go get him. This tags him exactly so I can walk or drive to where he is and bring him home, so relieved! Just know that once you start tracking when he goes out of his "safe zone," the battery life drops about 1% for five minutes. And if you are looking for him in the dark but he is under the neighbor's car or deck, it's not practical to go on their property to retrieve your pet, so get him while it is still light out. So thrilled!
I have an indoor/outdoor kitty whom I obsess over. Not even ashamed to admit it.This little device has brought me immeasurable peace of mind. You have no idea how much I wish I'd bought a Whistle sooner. Being able to track him like this has completely eliminated a major source of anxiety in my life. Thank you Whistle from the bottom of my crazy cat lady heart.P.S. It's a little large for kitties (see pics) but it's super lightweight. If your cat doesn't mind wearing a regular collar & tags, he/she probably won't mind this.
I'm not a robot writing a false review - I'm a human from SoCal :-)I originally purchased the more expensive version of this Whistle, but it worked terribly. The system would not update that my dog had left the invisible fence or entered it, until I was MILES away from my home (the invisible fence)I called Whistle customer service and I got a REALLY great rep who explained to me that the technology is SO STRONG on the updated Go Explore Pro that this version of the Whistle doesn't "let go" or loose the Wifi connection (which is how you set up your invisible fence) very easily. This is actually NOT A good thing for this type of device. You want the connection to be dropped easily so that you can quickly be updated that your dog left the invisible fence.So, not only is this version cheaper - it actually works, the only one doesn't work at all; it's worthless unless you want to be notified that you dog has left the invisible fence when he is miles and miles away from home.
