The Shepherd’s Dog Whistle has evolved over the years to help shepherds & others work with “four-legged” field helpers. The whistle allows the command to carry farther and without the user‘s vocal inflection interfering with the commands.
To use the Shepherd’s Dog Whistle—
- Place the whistle open side forward between the teeth with your lips at the front edge, and your tongue at the back of the solid edge of the whistle.The whistle has a hole on each side, so it doesn’t matter which side is facing up or down.
- Blow air down and through the top hole, almost like blowing over a pop bottle. With minor adjustments of the whistle you should hear a tone.
- By using your tongue to regulate the air, various tone combinations can be produced. This allows you to move several dogs at one time.
