Note: Dogs under 10 pounds are not well represented on Whistle (the GPS collar is usually too big for them), and the data only includes dogs who were active for more than 14 days in a row (to improve data quality). Testing of a Whistle GPS collar loaned to us by the company also showed it does not record indoor activity, nor can it really distinguish between walking or running. And correlation isn't necessarily causation: Owners who don't get dogs outside very much may gravitate toward these breeds.
