Product Description

SPRENGER Dog Training Whistle-The human ear can hear only a quiet high pitched note, but a dog can pick up this sound at a distance of up to 400 yards (depending on direction and strength of the wind). The tone can be adjusted by turning the screw after removal of the protective cover. During training it is important the same pitch of note is always maintained. This can be achieved by use of the locking nut fitted on the adjustment screw. The plastic cover will protect the whistle from dust when carried in a pocket.

Customer Reviews

They operation instructions did not match the item.
S. Black
I can't say for sure it was a problem with the whistle, but since not one of three dogs hears it I don't know what else to think.
DMJ
Not the best obedience training but the whistle works.

I can either put up with incessant pointless barking or try to do something about it. The whistle does seem to have some effect on these dogs even though they are four city lots away. I have to be outside or have the window open, and blow the whistle as hard as I can. This is a nice, sturdy brass whistle. There's an adjustment screw that isn't well explained in the instructions, but I guess there's not much to it. I tried the dog whistle iPhone app, but it's harder to give the dog immediate feedback because you have to unlock the phone and navigate to the app before you can use it. I keep the whistle on a lanyard and wear it when the dogs are typically barking... 8 AM, 11 PM, or whenever a squirrel walks by... Note to neighbors: You're welcome.

I bought this product because of the great reviews. Tried it on my Border Collie that was subborn about coming when I called.

She is doing much better and now pays attention when I blow the whistle.

people reviewing this product seem to have no idea its purpose is to train. Dogs do not instinctively come out of the womb thinking this sound means "stop barking" or "come" or anything else. The point of this is to train your dog to respond to commands at distance. If your dog is never more than 30 feet from you, or you don't care about yelling over distance and being just plain irritating to others, this whistle is not for you. If you don't intend to train your dog, and just want a dog that runs around and does as it pleases, this is not for you. Training whistles like this are for those that properly train their dogs, and are now able to trust them at further and further distances on outings, they are for bird hunters that need their dogs to be large distance away.

I can't stress enough that your dog doesn't know what you want if you don't train it - sure, they will eventually pick up on some things, like "when i chew his shoes, he gets loud and intimidating and doesn't pet me all day" or "when he throws the ball, he gets happy when i bring it back" a 15 minute training session each day will get your dog trained! Training your dog will get him more attention from people, and you will lock him up less often, and he gets focused attention from you, which is all he wants other than food and shelter! Untrained dogs too often just lay about the house, taking up space in a bored existence until they eventually die, and you get a new dog that you never do anything with other than pat his head, feed, and take out to go bathroom. Dog training is not rocket science, I learned how to teach my 2 month old cocker the basic commands (sit, stay, down, go lay down, heel, etc) in 4 days using treats and a leash by just watching youtube videos.

I like this item, it works as advertised. The instructions could be written better. Overall it does what I wanted it to do, Make the barking dog next door stop barking.

I am an avid road cyclist that is lucky enough to live in rural North Carolina. This also means that I have my share of "free range" dogs to deal with as well. Although I still carry my squirt bottle of ammonia when I ride, I haven't found an occassion to use it since purchasing this whistle. What I do is simply blow it and give a command that the dog is probabaly used to hearing anyway. Many of the mangy cur that used to chase seemingly endlessly now stop and/or retreat. My cycling friends have been amazed when they've seen me use this and now some of them are wanting to but one as well. Remember, it's a training tool so use a command that you think the dog will most likely to have heard before. Works for me.....

I've tried two other whistles by other companies in the past few years and this is the only one that seems to work. When they hear it, my dogs stop barking and look to me for the next command. I usually ask them if they want a "cookie" and they immediately come inside. Not the best obedience training but the whistle works.

Received the silent dog whistle quickly. Discovered that I needed to turn the adjuster out until it slunded to me like a high pitched whistle. This seemed to carry further according to our dog's reaction. We used treats to train her to come to the whistle. That went pretty quick. Still experimenting to determine the range. I don't think it is 400 yards but it is at least 100 yards.

Dog comes running when this is blown because it is coupled with a treat she receives. She is very focused and when hunting varmints on her own won't come when called even with a treat. She comes to this. I think it breaks her focus.
