The activity monitor craze has gone to the dogs — literally — and PetSmart has provided us with one of these cool gadgets to give away.
With the Whistle monitor, you can:
- Track your dog’s periods of playtime, walking, and rest, and then access the info through an iPhone or Android app
- Set daily exercise goals and track progress
- Check on your dog while away
- Share photos and notes among owners and also publicly on social media
All of the above can be used to improve the health and happiness of your dog. For example, setting goals and using the monitor to meet them could help an overweight pup shed pounds. And tracking activity trends also may help you spot an issue with your dog’s health before it becomes serious. You can even have those responsible for walks while you are away check in for duty, allowing you to see how long your dog was out and about.
The monitor attaches to your dog’s collar, syncs wirelessly, and only needs recharging every 10 days. The device comes with a USB charging dock and regularly retails for $129.99.
