Tips For Using The Whistle

Getting Started

  • Sound the device and then feed your pet a treat
  • Repeat until your pet understands that the whistle sound is associated with treats

Training Your Pet To Sit With The Whistle

  • Hold a treat above your pet's nose, and slowly move it back over their head until their bottom touches the floor (if your pet jumps up, then the treat is too high above their head)
  • As your pet sits, sound the whistle and reward with a treat
  • Repeat the process and add the command “sit”, gradually removing the hand signal

Training Your Dog To Drop With The Whistle

  • Start with your pet in the sitting position
  • Move a treat down from their nose to between their front paws and your pet should drop down to the ground
  • Sound the whistle and reward with a treat if your pet does drop
  • Repeat the process and add the command “drop”, gradually removing the hand signal

Directions for use

Before you start: decide on your whistle signal – typically 3 x short whistles for recall, 1 x long whistle for sit

Recall

  • Allow your dog to wander (only a short distance)
  • Call their name and give your chosen whistle command and open your arms wide
  • Back away from the dog, encouraging them towards you
  • If they are reluctant, use a long lead to reel them in
  • Once they reach you, praise and reward them with a treat
  • Repeat until consistent
  • When responding well, stop using your verbal command and just use the whistle and open arm signal
  • Repeat, gradually increasing the distance
  • Once consistent, you can remove the lead

Distance sit

  • Hold a treat above your dog’s nose, and slowly move it back over their head until their bottom touches the floor (if your dog jumps up, then the treat is too high above their head)
  • As they sit, give your whistle command
  • Praise and reward the sit position with a treat
  • Give a release command, such as finish and encourage them forward
  • Repeat, gradually phasing out using the treat
  • When consistent, increase the distance between you and your dog before saying sit
  • It is important to return to your dog to reward them, so they understand the reward is for sitting and not for returning to you
