Why Whistle-Training may be The Solution.

Getting your dog to do what it is told is not always easy, hopefully you started training them when they are a puppy, although the saying, ‘You can’t teach old dogs new tricks’ is an old wives tale.

Dogs are intelligent animals and do understand various commands, your tone of voice and the way you speak. They are very good at picking up little things too such as your body language. Training your dog involves patience, repetition and rewarding them.

One way of training your dog is with a whistle, where a whistle is beneficial is that it allows you to communicate over long distances with your dog, such as across a field, in noisy environments, where your voice may be drowned out and in the case of an ultra-sonic whistle (which we will cover in a moment.), silently issue commands such as recall, sit, stop barking and so forth.

There are two types of whistles you can use to train your dog, a long-range whistle that can be heard up to a mile away, and an ultra-sonic whistle, although a shorter reach, just as effective and its key benefit is that the pitch is out of human hearing making it inaudible and less annoying to your neighbours.

By using different sounds produced by the whistle, such as long, short, and a combination of these you can train your dogs various commands. For instance, a short whistle to stop or stay, and a long whistle to recall, a short followed by two long whistles to go play or run. When training your dog with a whistle, reward them with treats, they soon associate the sounds with treats and will be much more responsive and susceptible to training.

Another key factor when choosing to train your dog with a whistle is to choose a good quality one, such as those sold by As well as a choice of long-range or ultrasonic (you may even want to consider both.) whistle, they also come with a wrist band and lanyard so you don’t lose it, and a free training guide to help you along your way. They are also adjustable so you can change the pitch to be the most effective. Just remember when training your dog, be patient, persevere and you will reap the rewards.
