The Story

This small but very shrill Acme 60.5 Thunderer Whistle has been a favorite of hunting dog trainers for years. With its fluctuating frequency, it is easily heard even in strong winds. Fitted with a no-stick pea, it will work after complete immersion in water and is unaffected by rainstorms and harsh weather. Comes with a simple lanyard.

Nickel-plated brass. Wipe clean. Made in USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whistle that works! Heavy duty whistle that works every time...and very loud! I bought two; one for me and one for my 82 year old father. Our cell phone service does not work on our farm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s loud I purchased two, one to train my Boykin Spaniel with, the other for my son who is a collegiate swim coach and former lifeguard, to replace one that was lost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dogs off leash! My lab runs free in the fields and woods. No leash needed there. This whistle carries through the terrain and wind. My dog knows where i am and where to come. No more hollering...just two short pops on the whistle and a here he comes! Well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wolf Whistle Extraordinaire! We had two plastic whistles we purchased for training our Spinone hunters, one each for us. One got lost and the other is almost doing the job but frankly limping along. I am so pleased I lost my plastic whistle because this little lady is the perfect whistle to grab attention. Hero is totally sold on coming back to a whistle sound whereas his brother Ralph is rather easily distracted. Well Ralph nearly jumped out of his skin when he heard the command of the pea! Our little puppy Trousers also heard this whistle for the first time today (he is a very confident small terrier chap who often pretends he can't hear a word when he has a toy) well whistle blown and toy dropped and immediate attention. I know it seems expensive but golly I think this is the Patron Saint for all whistle blowers! Highly recommended.
