Anyway, I've been using two whistles for my dogs that I carry on a lanyard around my neck. I use the small metal "silent" whistle that's been around for decades for getting their attention (1 toot) or calling them to me (2 toots) when they are fairly close to me--say 50 yards. Then I use either a "police" whistle, such as an Acme Thunderer or Fox 40, for when they are farther away. But my police whistles are so darn loud that I'm reluctant to use them when there are people around. Cue the Acme Sonec. Really lightweight, easy to blow both soft and loud tones, and when I blow it hard I don't feel like I'm waking up the entire neighborhood. I find it's effective up to about 150 yards. Farther than that and I have to use the police whistle.
One caveat--to use this whistle effectively (or ANY whistle) you do have to know how to blow a whistle. Laugh if you want, but there is technique involved. As a retired soccer referee I probably own 15 different kinds of whistles and I know how to blow each one in different ways to get different results. My suggestion to new whistleblowers is to first search the web for "how to blow a whistle", watch some vids, then go someplace where you won't bother other people and practice. It's not hard to learn, but I see people all the time at the dog park who don't do it right.
