Story from Aaron J.

Thank you Whistle GPS for saving my day!

I don't usually post non-weather stuff, but had to share for any animal lovers. I have a Whistle GPS on both of my dogs. Today, I got an alert that my dogs had left their "safe" zone (my house/yard). I raced home and sure enough, the dogs were right where the GPS said they were. My neighbor had l... read more

I don't usually post non-weather stuff, but had to share for any animal lovers. I have a Whistle GPS on both of my dogs. Today, I got an alert that my dogs had left their "safe" zone (my house/yard). I raced home and sure enough, the dogs were right where the GPS said they were. My neighbor had left my gate open and today was trash day, so the trash cans were no longer blocking the gate.

I'm just glad this didn't happen when I was far from home. Thank you Whistle GPS for saving my day!

Pinto
Story from Beth Y.

I enjoy our walks so much more knowing where he is, even when he's out of sight.

We love letting Pinto run off-leash. We live in a rural area, so it's safe for him to do so in most places. Walks and hikes were never relaxing or enjoyable for me, though, because Pinto tends to run off and gets quite far quite fast. He always comes back, but the time he's gone is torture.

Walks and hikes were never relaxing or enjoyable for me, though, because Pinto tends to run off and gets quite far quite fast. He always comes back, but the time he's gone is torture. Once he ran two miles away to his doggie day care on his own. We were looking for him for hours before they found him at the back door and called!

The Whistle has been life changing! I enjoy our walks so much more knowing where he is, even when he's out of sight. Here's a picture of him after finding him today, thanks to the Whistle.

Candy
Story from Courtney B.

It gives me peace of mind our family dog is safe.

My 14 year old beloved dog got out of our yard and was missing for months; we later found out a coyote killed her. I was so upset she was missing and wished there was something we could have done to locate her. I even hired a scent dog tracker that drove down to Houston to help locate my missing dog. We never found her even after walking behind the scent dog for 4 miles.

Fast forward; we adopted a one-eyed dog Candy from our local SPCA. She is amazing but loves to escape and sneak out of the gate. I never wanted to go through losing another dog, so my husband found your Whistle GPS collars. We immediately bought one for our new adopted dog and she wears it 24/7 now. She has escaped one time since wearing it, and we were able to track her via GPS and find her a street over just 10 minutes after she escaped.

We love our Whistle; best of all, it gives me peace of mind our family dog is safe.

Isis
Story from Katy M.

She could have been hit by a car. But your product saved her.

We live in a remote community and enjoy taking the dogs for off-leash hikes in the hills. It's freeing for them and they can run full out without the constraint of a human behind them that can't keep up.

My husband went alone with them shortly after getting the trackers for the dogs, and ... read more

My husband went alone with them shortly after getting the trackers for the dogs, and I was at home working. I got a phone call from him that he'd lost Isis. She had backtracked and gone in an opposite direction and he lost sight of her. I was able to quickly find her on my Whistle app, jump in the truck, and find her within a minute or two. She had made it just slightly into the neighborhood and was getting into paved territory, where cars live. I thank God she had that little tracker on, because I found her, got her in the truck, and home we went. She could have been hit by a car. But your product saved her. Thank you so much for taking care of my pets.

Much gratitude and love,
Katy

Remington, Ruger, Winnie, Snowball & Luis
Story from Michelle D.

How surprised they were (and embarrassed) to see their mom when they'd gone too far!

Here is a story of four Pyrenees and a little terrier. I live in a rural area of Texas where I have 93 acres, plus there are a good 300 hundred acres of countryside surrounding us. Coyotes and wild pigs are a problem, so I was looking for a guardian breed that could drive them away and that was ... read more

Here is a story of four Pyrenees and a little terrier. I live in a rural area of Texas where I have 93 acres, plus there are a good 300 hundred acres of countryside surrounding us. Coyotes and wild pigs are a problem, so I was looking for a guardian breed that could drive them away and that was sweet to people. People told me how great Pyrenees were, but that they like to do "walkabouts” so they need good fencing.

Being on that big of a property, and with so much additional land needing to be patrolled, I didn’t have a fencing option. I decided not to listen. Surely any dog can be trained...

Well, the dogs went on their walkabouts, but I used this to my advantage. I started with Tagg and then Whistle. Whenever my Pyrenees approached the surrounding roadways of their territories, I got in my truck and picked them up. How surprised they were (and embarrassed) to see their mom there when they had gone too far!

At first I kept them locked up at night, but then they started not to stray beyond the "pick up" zone. I stayed up a few nights and kept the alert signal by my bed, but now these Pyrenees are totally trained. I don't use my truck unless it is to go to the vet. I watch them if they are outside of my 93 acres, but they don’t go too far and the coyotes are gone. One even caught and ate a wild pig.

I could only have done this with these GPS trackers. They are essential to my life.

Harrison
Story from Larry F.

By the time I got on the ATV and chased after them, they were out of sight.

We have a ranch in the country and our two dogs love to run and be free. They have disappeared for days before returning, and one can imagine our worry that something happened to them.

We have a ranch in the country and our two dogs love to run and be free. They have disappeared for days before returning, and one can imagine our worry that something happened to them.

I purchased a GPS pet tracker for Harrison, since he is the "alpha male". Early one morning, the dogs and I were going out to the barn, when they took off. By the time I got on the ATV and chased after them, they were out of sight. I was able to track Harrison in the woods and was led straight to him. The other dog, a female beagle, was right there with him. I have since ordered a GPS tracker for her.

The tracker is still with her in her new forever family!

We use the Whistle tracker on some of our dogs in our beagle rescue. Thankfully, we had a tracker on Belle. She was a recent arrival and came to us with a sad story. Her owner passed away and the owner’s family could not keep Belle and her beagle mother, Katie.

We use the Whistle tracker on some of our dogs in our beagle rescue. Thankfully, we had a tracker on Belle. She was a recent arrival and came to us with a sad story. Her owner passed away and the owner’s family could not keep Belle and her beagle mother, Katie.

When we took them both into our program, Katie was very, very ill. A vet visit revealed she was suffering from end stage lung cancer so we had to free her and send her to fly free with the angels. Imagine Belle’s sadness at losing everything in life. Foster after foster could not seem to contain her as she escaped to head for the wild blue yonder – perhaps looking for her family?

A few nights of searching for her with flashlights in pouring rain led us to seek a better option. We put our Whistle GPS tracker on her and so happy we did! This thing is amazing… and is a must for Beagles (or any breed!) who have the propensity to dig out, fly out the front door, or take advantage of an open gate. Putting the small tracker on Belle’s collar allowed us to set up an “escape zone” so that once she crosses the invisible barrier, it sends out an alert to our phones and shows a map of where the dog is heading… all in real time!

By the way — we did find Belle, and she is currently in the “safe zone”! The tracker is still with her in her new forever family!

We know where she is at all times and if she is in a place she is not supposed to be we can go get her! She is a bird dog so her hunting sense is strong. Not... read more
