Andy Cohen + Wacha team up with Whistle
We are excited to announce that Emmy Award-winning producer and pet parent, Andy Cohen has joined our advisory board as Strategic Advisor of brand and media vision. After using Whistle with his adopted pooch, Wacha, the host of Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" became passionate about sharing our mission to help dogs everywhere live healthier, happier lives.
Andy became a first-time pet owner when he adopted his Foxhound and Beagle mix, Wacha, in late 2013. Already an advocate for dog rescues, Andy began using Whistle with Wacha in early 2014. He was eager to help spread Whistle’s message to the nearly 80 million pet parents across the country upon seeing its impact on their daily routine and connection.
“Teaming up with Whistle is an exciting way to blend my love for storytelling, cutting-edge brands and my pup, Wacha,” said Andy Cohen, host and Executive Producer of “Watch What Happens Live” on Bravo. “I use Whistle to monitor how Wacha eats, plays and rests – it’s a big part of our daily life. I only work with brands that I’m truly connected to and passionate about the way that I am with Whistle.”
The Whistle Activity Monitor simplifies pet ownership by capturing and classifying movement across a range of activities including resting, walking, playing, running, swimming and general activity. It then wirelessly syncs with a mobile app on your smartphone to give you a visual summary of your dog’s day. This allows you to stay connected to your pet when together or apart, while working to enable a new era of preventative pet care. To date, the device has already helped catch potentially fatal illnesses and poisonous snakebites helping pet parents to avoid costly and emotional emergencies.
“Our partnership with Andy brings a valuable combination of strategic direction and influence to the company overall,” said Ben Jacobs, CEO and Co-founder of Whistle. “Andy has built a successful career based on seeking out his passions first and cultivating authentic growth as a result. Bringing in his brand building and media expertise will be instrumental in taking Whistle to the next level.”
