I needed a whistle for the house. I got tired of going out to my bike and looking for my other whistle. My dog has five titles and she listens to the whistle very well. I really like the Roy Gonia.
  • Great sound.

I have been using Gonia products for 30+ years and never hard any issues. If you want the best training products these are the ones. Gun Dog Supply provides a great selection of quality training products and fast shipping.

I have used many a Roy Gonia whistles training many hunting and field trial dogs. Since my last whistle 20 yrs ago these whistles don't compare. Harder to blow and the sound is a lot higher pitch. The body is smaller which may be the reason for the higher pitch.

Windy days and an lost or out range dog will hear this whistle.

A good backup whistle.
  • A good whistle to have in your kit.
  • There is no lanyard sold with the whistle.

GOOD LOUD WHISTLE GETS ATTENTION OUT TO 100+ yards. Great for hunting and running drills. Bought my son one also for his first whistle. I have owned a few of them over the years. Good product.

Not as good as the higher grade Roy Gonia whistle. Would spend a little more money for the higher grade whistle.

I had an older version of this whistle which was made in the USA. The new whistle has a lower pitch, and also the pea has less effect on the sound.

I like the whistle. It's loud enough and light weight. After testing the 1st one, I bought 4 more to stash in the cars, training and hunting bags.

Reviews are good on this inexpensive whistle, but the one I received does not work (almost no sound). Will be exchanging for a higher quality whistle.

Same as clear model. Pea sticks and product seems to have been cheapened since I last bought one a few years ago. No more of these!

Best $3 I could spend on my dog! She was a rescue and ran off after every truck that went by. I thought she would get hit. Within 2 days, she was completely trained to stop and come at the sound. Fits easily in pocket, never needs adjusting and works every time!

Nothing bad to say about these. Good reliable product. My dog also seems to respond to them more than the other whistle I was using.

So light and small, I was afraid that it wouldn't do the job. It does. It's much louder than it appears to be, and my dog took to it right away and responded to it without training! He comes running to me from wherever he is with his tail waving.

Sound carries very well. Easy to form different sounds for different situations, like turn, go on, come in, etc.

Used the Roy Gonia whistles for many years. This SportDOG whistle is great. Seems a little higher pitched than the past versions? If the dog doesn't come in or remote sit, it's not the whistle.

I have several. Dog is trained to a whistle, so I have them all over the place. I like the SportDOG whistle with a pea best of all that I use.

If blown hard, the sound is just a solid note without the pea oscillating to create the twirtle sound of a whistle.

For some reason, these whistles sound weak and shrill when they are new, but as the cork pea dries and shrinks a little and moves more freely, they are a great whistle. If they could correct this issue I'd give 5 stars, but since they seem to need to "season" a month or two, I can only give 4.
