Best Dog Whistles for Training

Did you know hunters and shepherds use dog whistles to communicate and perform advanced maneuvers? They’re that effective. But regular dog owners can use them too!

Dog whistles have been used  and trusted for decades. It’s not like its experimental technology. With a few puffs, you can recall your dog, command it to sit, stop barking or whatever exercise you choose. 

Here are our top 5 choices for dog whistles. Some of them can adjust their frequency, a few come in multipacks, a few have money back guarantees and a few are awarded as “Amazon’s choice”. All are very inexpensive – about the cost of a fast food meal. With the influx of cheap knockoffs from China, it’s important to choose right. 

Mumu Sugar Professional Dog Whistle

This is our top choice for a lot of reasons. It is also listed as an “Amazon’s choice” item because of customer satisfaction. The best dog whistles have an adjustable frequency and Mumu Sugar’s is no exception. It has an adjustable frequency between 5.4 and 12.8 KHz. This allows you to select a tone that your dog can hear well and can be unique between you two. It is small and can easily fit in a pocket. This makes bringing it to the park or to town quite easy. However, since it’s made of solid rust-proof heavy material it’ won’t break easily. The whistle comes in a black metal color. We especially like Mumu Sugar because it has a 100% money back guarantee. This means you can buy it without any worries. 

4 Pack Dog Whistle in 4 Colors

4 for the price of 1. That’s an unbeatable combination! Why would you want 4 dog whistles? There are plenty of reasons. You could leave one in each of the main rooms of your house to allow easy access. You’ll have multiple backups in case you lose one. You could give one to a friend who is also a dog owner. 

There are multiple reasons why these make a great buy. The whistles are adjustable to multiple frequencies. They are made from premium metal and are rust proof. They’re only 3.15 inches long, so they’ll easily fit on a keychain or a pocket. They come in one of each of these four colors: black, white, blue and orange. The whistles  are ultrasonic and sound just like air blowing to the human ear. This means you won’t disturb anyone in public while you are using them.

This pack of four whistles also come with a money back guarantee. Buy them risk free.

ZDCDEALS Professional Ultrasonic Dog Training Whistle

ZDCDEALS is a great choice for a dog whistle. It’s specifically made to stop barking but can be used for other aspects of training. There’s a nut and screw to adjust frequency. There’s a 100% money back guarantee with this choice as well. It’s good to hear companies standing by their product.

 

It’s also quite portable. Included is a lanyard strap so you can hang it around your neck. It only comes in one color – black.

ACME 211.5 Working Dog Whistle - Day Glo Orange

The ACME dog whistle comes in a distinctive day glo orange. This bright color some people might prefer out of personal preference. However, it’s a very “loud” color and don’t buy it if this is a turnoff (there are many quality alternatives).

The whistle is made in England and is thus of great quality. The frequency is not adjustable (single frequency). This might be a turnoff to sound.It is loud and works great on a windy day.

One thing this reviewer did not like is that It does not come with a lanyard chain so you’ll have to buy one if you want to hang it around your neck. There is a keychain ring so you can keep it with your keys. 

Benbulben - Twin Pack of Professional High Pitch Plastic Dog Whistle for Recall Training 

This item includes two whistles for the price of one. So you can give one to your spouse or keep a backup handy in case you lose the first one. One is a low profile black and the other is bright orange. The coloring does not affect performance, it’s merely personal preference.

The two whistles are made of a durable plastic. They both have lanyards and key rings.

The whistles are both lightweight (90 grams) and small (a length of 80 mm).

Two for the price of one is a hard deal to beat. It’s also an “Amazon’s choice” so you can buy with confidence.

You might be a little overwhelmed right now. We can break it down for you. These are the features you should care about:

Adjustable Frequency?

Does the whistle have an adjustable frequency? If you’re not sure, we think you should buy one that can be adjusted. This is because you probably want the sound of your whistle to be unique between you and your dog. Also, you can have a different frequency for each command. One can be for an order to sit, while another one to recall. Technically, it’s quite easy for a whistle to modify its frequency so ones that can don’t cost more than those that don’t.

Style

This depends on the person, but some people might want to be a bit stylish. Most obvious is color but the shape of a whistle varies as well. Remember, it’s likely you’ll be using it very frequently so choose something that you find aesthetically pleasing.

Single or multiple

The market for dog whistles is so competitive that some manufacturers are selling them in packs of 2 or 4 for the price of 1. Ask yourself: are you a person that is constantly losing your keys or wallet? It might be worth it to purchase a multi pack.

(not) Price

The market for whistles is pretty competitive so they actually don’t vary in price that much. They’re very simple machines to produce. This makes buying one easier as you don’t have to weigh whether a more expensive one is worth the cost.
