    Learning curve, but great product.

    By ArthursMom on Oct 30, 2020

    I have never had any other shepherds whistles, but this looks like a quality product. Yes, there is a small learning curve, but when you get it. You get it. I watched a couple YouTube videos, then I had it in my mouth practicing for about an hour until I got it.

I watched a couple YouTube videos, then I had it in my mouth practicing for about an hour until I got it. I thought I had it for about 40 minutes, but then when I was trying to reposition and get a different tone found out it was not quite in the right position. As soon as it was, I could tell a huge difference and after a few more minutes of practicing in the right position was getting pretty consistent tones and was able to control tones abd volume enough to teach my dog to go into a "Down". It is pretty small, so make sure you put it somewhere you won't lose it. I had it about 2 hours, set it somewhere, and lost it. Lol. … more

    Find a better whistle

    shepherd dog whistle

    By on

    #1. It didn't have any instruction as to how to use it. #2. I know the dogs hear it and I can't but they never payed any attention to it, just turned their heads and looked at me like I was silly.

    Takes time to learn...

    By on

    Very difficult to get to make the right sound. Will keep practicing, but cautiously optimistic...

    Hard to learn

    By on

    This is a great product with a wide range of tones that you can make. However, there is a very steep learning curve when first using this product!

    Can't figure out

    By on

    This seems like a well made whistle, but I cannot get it to work for the life of me. I've read the instructions and tried and tried but it just doesn't work. Not a sound. I was really looking forward to this whistle because I need one for recall but going to try another.

    DOE'S NOT WORK ! ! !

    By on

    After watching the video and seen my dogs reaction to the whistle they heard turning their heads left and right, I thought this would be a great whistle! Wrong! This whistle sucks! First of all it leaves a nasty taste of metal in your mouth!? And second no matter what I did I could not get this to work! Just buy a cheap one that actually works! Chewy gave me a well deserved refund.

    Not your normal whistle

    By on

    This whistle can take a little practice but even the littlest of sounds will make your dog halt. It works!! It’s really a neat little thing to use.
