I have a cheap aluminum Whistle that I got for Emergencies when walking or hiking. Last week, Patti was in the backyard where I couldn't see her, I called: Patti Come
and got no response. I picked up my Whistle, gave it a couple of quick short blows (it's loud and high pitched) and Patti came running like a Bat out of Hell. AMAZING!!!!
the quick response. Of course, I had a treat ready.
Since then every single time I've Blown that Whistle she comes Running!!
Patti occasionally escapes out the front door or fenced area and I'm hoping she'll return quicker with this Whistle, without me chasing or persuading her to return. It's especially hard when something has gotten her interest such as the UPS man whom she wants to chase. She once flew out the door and chased the FedEx TRUCK!!!! Good Grief....
I'm currently teaching her she gets a treat when she Comes to the Whistle and in a few weeks will turn her loose outside of the fenced area to see if works.
Does anyone know about Dog Whistles? I want to buy more so I can place them around the house but when I researched them on Amazon, Ultra-Sonic Whistles for Dogs pops up. I don't know why Patti responds so quickly to a Whistle. Is it particular sound? Hummmmmmmmmmm
