Sterling Silver Shepherds Whistle Pendant
Sterling Silver Shepherds Whistle, hanging from a simple chain runner.
The whistle is 4cm wide x 4.5cm long and is a functioning Shepherds Whistle.
A sheep dog whistle is held against the tongue in the mouth. The sound is produced by air flowing through the top and bottom holes and then out from the 'sound chamber' which is the slit between the two flat sides of the whistle. Use the whistle tone you want the dog to associate with a specific command and then immediately use the voice command it is already familiar with. After a while you will be able to just use the whistle tone alone allowing you to communicate with the dog at greater distances. Although this type of herding dog whistle has traditionally been used for Border Collie training, shepherd's whistles are ideal for any dog breed and for puppy training.
