What the heck is a Whistle, you may ask? It’s like a Fitbit… for your dog. Since I love my Fitbit, I had heard musings about it on the internet this whole last year. But for Christmas, my boyfriend and I received one for our dog.
I have to say, it’s pretty cute.
It does have its perks though. It has medication reminders! That is my favorite feature I believe. I am terrible about when it’s time to give flea medicine every month, but this has been very helpful. I’ve also noticed that sometimes it even motivates me to be more active, which can be really handy. If Maverick has had a super lazy day, I’ll usually get off my butt and walk him..
When we first got the Whistle, my boyfriend and I were very excited to see what all Maverick did while we were at school. Our dog is pretty energetic and loves chasing squirrels. Our first day back to school we thought the thing was BROKEN because it registered ZERO activity once we left. Turned out our seemingly energetic, spunky dog turns into a huge lazy bum the second we walk out the door. Which is not only funny but helpful, so we know to play with him more when we get home so he doesn’t get too bored with life!
Would I buy one for myself? Probably not. They are on the pricier side. Is it super fun? Yes! Surprisingly so!
Should you get one? Do you treat your dog like a first born child? If the answer to the latter question is yes, then I think you would love one too. (Okay, so maybe I have a little bit of a dog problem…)
Do you have a Whistle? Do you love it?
