Great whistle
November 8, 2023
This is the best whistle for bird dog hunting and training. The 2 holes seem to make a more wide range sound for the dogs to hear. Lasts a really long time too.

Very nice whistle
June 8, 2023
Like to run my Lab off lead, & like for him to respond quickly. This whistle does the trick. Easy to use, & easy to adjust volume & length of whistled commands. Very bright neon yellow, matches lanyard & dog collar- my dog gets very happy when he sees me grab it.
  • Easy to use , haven

Meh, Good Whistles Are Hard To Find!
February 22, 2023
This whistle isn't great. It takes a lot of air to get it to whistle which means it has to be loud. I like whistles I really control the volume on.
  • loud
  • cant use a low volume

This this really cranks. The pealess design is great in freezing weather.

The dogs come running when I blow the whistle.

My dogs respond to the high pitched whistle tone. I prefer a louder regular whistle tone, but it is not about me, it is what gets my dogs moving.
  • Dogs respond to the whistle.
  • I don't think it is loud enough.

The "Failsafe" whistle.
April 13, 2022
This is my "go to" whistle, they don't clog, freeze up or stop working. They are loud and the tone carries well for the dogs to hear. I can't recommend these enough.
  • No Clogging with spittle.
  • No waterlogged "pea"
  • Won't freeze up.
  • Nice loud tone.
  • A bit bigger form factor than other whistles.

Use in training pups and the different pitch works out for me
  • pitch difference
  • learning curve on how to blow whistle

Attention Getting
October 6, 2021
I received the whistles I ordered. They make a loud and shrill sound. I use them in lieu of an electronic collar to get my dog's attention and take his mind off of distractions. They work well for me in this regard.
  • Make a loud shrill sound that can be heard over ocean surf and vehicular traffic
  • Can take a lot of forced air to get the desired sound (not a big issue)

This whistle has good volume and a deep tone. It works well for the one blast to get the dog to sit. It is hard to tweet with it so it doesn't work the best for recalls.The more shrill whistle I have works better for that application.

I've tried a couple different whistles and the fox 40 has been the best by far.

I use this whistle more than any other whistle while duck and goose hunting. Its load, it's small and its pea less design make it a perfect fit for my lanyard in the field.

Very powerful whistle. Gets my dog's attention in very strong winds at long distances. As a teacher, my wife used it to get students attention. If it works on today's teenagers!?!?!

They have excellent tone for intermediate, as well as long range. I guess I must love the 40, since I have 6 just to make sure they are in every place I might need one. They're the only whistle we use.

The sound carries well. The trill is a bit much. Perhaps this is due to using a whistle without the pea for so many years.

January 24, 2015
At 76, the last addition to my lower dentures did in my ability to let loose my lifelong signature (two-finger) whistle, which has always signaled to my dogs--and my kids--that I was issuing an order, not asking a favor. And whistling the way one would to whistle a melody didn't even get my dog Shine to lift an ear. Obvious solution? Buy a whistle that would allow me to duplicate the sound of my two-fingered command. Secondary problem? You can't know the sound of a whistle by looking at it, and the folks in stores are not at all understanding when you ask to test their stock. Final solution? Gun Dog Supply. Your descriptions of your various whistles allowed me to pick out a whistle that produces a sound so like my own that Shine, a good two-hundred yards away from me and busy with his sniffing, immediately straightened up and came to me at a dead run. Boy, did that feel good!

This has a great sound and is pealess, so works when it is cold and wet. Very effective, but I preferred the smaller Fox 40.

This is the whistle my trainer recommended. I like the whistle overall. It is loud and seems to work well at various volumes. I'm confident it will last because there is really nothing to break or degrade.

My husband thinks it's fine. I'm apparently not a big enough blowhard - I have trouble making it sound loud enough to carry past the door.

Probably the best whistle out there when you need to get your dog's attention under abnormal conditions, such as high wind or near highways, etc.

Still prefer the old style cork pea type whistle. Fox40 is ok but not as loud or shrill.
