Acme 640 Whistle

But there are of course some performance differences between the whistle designs – so if you want a whistle suited to a particular situation or to use with dogs of differing temperaments then we can help with that too – many of the more experienced users will have more than one Logan Whistle to hand for that very reason.When should I introduce a dog to whistle commands? Initially and while the dog is working close to you, voice commands can be used very effectively. As the dog begins to work further it is best to switch to whistle commands. Dogs recognise whistle commands quickly – your voice is one type of sound signal, a whistle is another more reassuring one. With practice, whistle commands are more likely to be consistent, the same cue for a specific action and so a real advantage when training dogs. A good whistle also allows for expression and added meaning to your commands to quickly convey how you expect the dog to react.

Do different dog breeds need a specific frequency of whistle? Frequency is technically the number of sound vibrations per second – a high frequency creates a high pitch or tone. A Logan Whistle can create a range of frequencies and so a range of tones or pitch patterns allowing for multiple, easy to distinguish commands all of which can be repeated, elongated or used softly or loudly to add emphasis and so meaning. If you can hear the whistle then you know what you are trying to communicate to the dog. Commands from Logan Whistles are not distorted as other whistles can be by heat/cold, wind or other atmospheric interference. With more consistent commands, even over extreme distance, your dog will be able to hear you more easily and so be more likely to remain calm, less confused, distracted or alarmed. That’s the basic principle of Logan Whistle commands developed for working sheepdogs – often three or more dogs working on different commands at distances of up to two miles – all from the same whistle. There is no reason why it should not apply to other breeds of dog.
Comparisons are based on trials and feedback, but everyone uses the whistles slightly differently – so please accept this illustration as a guide only.4. Now breathe from your chest through the whistle. If you’re sure the whistle is positioned correctly air can flow through it and out the slot at the front just relax and breathe.Can Logan Whistles be used for training working gundogs for field trials and normal field work – spaniels, labs? Yes, any of our whistles can be used with any breed of dog and can produce a range of clear commands creating a ‘language’ for any activity. They were developed for field work with border collies or other herding dogs, working in all sorts of conditions and for close and distance work (low soft and sharp loud tones) – but the sound quality needed for this type of work makes them equally powerful for other dog training and work – including gundogs and for competition.Begin by selecting tones for and then teaching your dog important first commands – such as a whistle tone which you want the dog to associate with Stop, or with coming back to you.On your Logan Turbo, What difference does having two holes make to the sound? Our two hole design changes the timbre of the command tones (timbre being the quality of sound that makes voices or musical instruments sound different from each other even when they are singing or playing the same note/pitch at the same volume). Dogs can continue to react correctly to the commands from the two-hole design when there is a lot of background noise or in very foggy or windy weather, perhaps wind off the sea or on the hills.

Our dog whistles are famous for their quality and the range of tones that dogs can hear at significant distance even in difficult weather conditions – making them a sought-after dog training whistle for many dog breeds. They are crafted with care using the highest quality materials, precision milled from a solid piece of metal to avoid joins and then hand finished to produce the very best sound. These shepherd’s style whistles have been perfect for the Border Collie and working dog but are just as effective for all dog breeds.
2. Place the whistle in the mouth so that the tab/open slot is to the front and the closed end is against NOT ON the tongue. Do not block either of the top or bottom holes. It is the air going through the hole on top and bottom of the whistle and out the slot at the front that creates the noise.

”The responses from dogs differ greatly depending on how sensitive to sound they are so the A1, Delta and Logan 304 are ideal for very responsive dogs, where the brass Supreme and the Turbo come in to their own with a less responsive dog. Reaching a great distance in bad conditions will also become easier to communicate with your dog with these two whistles.” Julie Hill
3. Seal the edges of the whistle gently with your lips (but do not block the slot) so the air can only pass through the whistle and out the slot. Your tongue is active in pushing the whistle to the right position so your lips just fall around the edge. The whistle does not sit flat on the tongue (that would block the bottom hole). Your tongue falls down below the whistle so the air can circulate.But Logan Whistles are not only for Border Collies – they are equally effective for other working dog breeds too – watch Ivy respond to her Logan Whistle

Action: Go Clockwise – i.e. arc around the LEFT side of the sheep – a full long flank is the movement of the dog round the sheep – almost the whole left side of the sheep. If you want to completely circle the sheep repeat the full-long flank command until the dog comes right round. Using the first ’chirp’ note of the command, ’Chew’ is a ’half-flank’ which tells the dog to move just a short distance around the left side of the sheep.”Once my dogs are solid on voice commands I introduce them to whistle tones. A dog can hear the pitch and tones of a whistle much easier than the voice especially if there is any interference like wind. The voice is ideal close at hand but the energy required to communicate with your dog at a distance would require much more energy and lung capacity to reach the distance required, so I definitely favour the use of the whistle if you want to communicate in a quiet but effective manner.” Julie Hill, past ISDS Supreme Champion & 2017 Scottish National Brace Champion

How do you use Acme shepherds whistle?
Place your tongue against the flat edge or against the bottom of the whistle, ensuring that the hole in the middle isn’t being covered. This will create an upper and lower chamber inside your mouth, one above and one below the whistle. Once it is in place and feels secure, blow gently.
Using feedback from experienced users and from field trials – we have created the following indication of features that users say they most value about each whistle – what the whistle does especially well – a good place to start if you have a particular need or are new to our whistles. Which whistle? If you’ve tried to use a sheepdog whistle before and failed – try again with a Logan Whistle. Any of our whistles is suitable for a beginner or a very experienced user. Some, such as the solid brass and stainless steel whistles, are capable of higher performance (greater range of tones and volume) where multiple commands are needed and where you will be working at extreme distances. Brass is capable of mellow as well as very sharp tones. Sound from our stainless steel whistles carries over flat windswept ground particularly well. Delta takes the precision of a metal whistle into a non-metallic material making these perfect in very hot or cold climates. Our two hole Turbo design changes the timbre of the tone in brass, stainless steel and Delrin which is effective when there is competing noise and seems more effective in generating a correct response from less responsive dogs, even at distance. Think about the material you might prefer, the weight of whistle, and the range of commands you’re going to need. As all are capable of high performance – soft deep tones to sharp, high pitched, tones – you can use just one design, basing your decision on the material, weight and overall design that you prefer.

What are the whistle commands for a dog?
A sheep dog whistle is held against the tongue in the mouth. The sound is produced by air flowing through the top and bottom holes and then out from the ’sound chamber’ which is the slit between the two flat sides of the whistle. Use the whistle tone you want the dog to associate with a specific command and then immediately use the voice command it is already familiar with. After a while you will be able to just use the whistle tone alone allowing you to communicate with the dog at greater distances. Although this type of herding dog whistle has traditionally been used for Border Collie training, Logan whistles are ideal for any dog breed and for puppy training.Do dog whistles hurt dogs’ ears? For most dogs, a 35,000 Hz dog whistle will be perfectly audible; dogs can hear high-pitched sounds up to 65,000 Hz. Researchers suggest the ability to hear higher frequencies stems from the modern dog’s ancestors’ need to hear the high-pitched squeaks of their prey, including mice and other rodents. Plus, a dog’s ear has 18 muscles (compared to six in a human ear) and a longer ear canal, giving them the ability to tilt and twitch their way to fine-tuning the sounds that interest them.

Keep in mind that, initially, the sound of any whistle is just noise. While the first few blasts may cause your dog to come to you, that’s just curiosity, not a magical magnetic pull. It’s up to you to make the sound meaningful to your dog.The high-pitched sound of a dog whistle can be distressing to some dogs. Research suggests using a high-pitched whistle won’t hurt your dog – unless you blow it too close to her ear – but something can be distressing without causing physical pain. If your dog looks uncomfortable when you blow the whistle, try another one. Acme Whistles makes a wide variety of dog-training whistles.

The sound carries so far because the silent whistle, also known as a dog whistle or “Galton’s Whistle,” isn’t silent at all; it’s just that humans can’t hear it. Invented in 1876 by Sir Francis Galton as a tool to help test the upper limits of audible sound on humans, the dog whistle emits a sound measuring about 35,000 Hz, well beyond the average range of 20 to 20,000 Hz that is detectable by the human ear.
If you give your new cue and your dog doesn’t immediately turn or come toward you, follow the new cue with your previous cue for the same behavior and reward him when he comes to you. (So, three toots, pause for a second or two, give your old cue, mark the behavior, and deliver treats.) Soon, your dog should realize that the three toots will be followed by his old recall cue and, in anticipation, he should begin turning and coming toward you as soon as he hears the new cue. At that point, you can stop using the old cue after the new one.

Many “silent” dog whistles are adjustable, so be sure to read the instructions and adjust the whistle to the pitch that quickly orients your dog to you. You can also purchase a fixed-pitch whistle, such as the Acme 211.5 whistle commonly used by retriever trainers. Pay attention to your dog’s body language. You want to see eager curiosity, not concern.Dog whistles have long been used for dog training. Working retrievers and herding dogs are often trained to respond to whistle cues because the sound of a whistle carries farther than the human voice and can be easier to hear in inclement weather – even the sound of a so-called “silent whistle.” How can that be?If your dog is comfortable with the whistle, decide what blast pattern you want to use as a cue for which behavior. For example, you may want your recall cue to be three short toots on the whistle. Give the new recall cue (three short toots), and, if your dog looks at and/or comes toward you, immediately mark the behavior with the click of a clicker or a verbal marker such as the word “Yes!” and give your dog a couple of high-value treats.* OBS!

What is the use of Acme dog whistle?
The dog whistle was first invented by ACME Whistles back in 1935, to allow owners to communicate with and control their dogs over large distances. Today, the dog whistle is still the most effective way for an owner to train their dog off the lead.

At a higher level of training sophistication, benefitting from its contrasting sound the 210 might be used in conjunction with a 210.5 or 211.5 to accommodate a wider range of instructions.
The 211.5 has been developed with a very high pitch and is the optimum choice for retriever breeds. The 211.5 emits a ‘constant’ sound without a ‘trill’.The 210.5 has been developed with an extremely high pitch to be best-suited to spaniel breeds; the 211.5, with a slightly lower pitch (although to the human ear the difference is almost indiscernible), is best suited to retriever breeds.

The 210 is visually very similar to the 210.5 and the 211.5. The major difference is that the 210 contains a ‘pea’, so when it’s blown a trilling sound is created. In principle, there’s nothing wrong with having a whistle which emits a ‘trilling’ ‘sound; it seems that for whatever reason trainers are generally more inclined towards, so presumably have more success with, whistles which emit a ‘constant’ sound.As a clue to their popularity, it’s interesting to note that Acme produce these two whistles in a wide range of colours. Of their other whistles, none are produced in more than two colours. That tells a story! Although actually (and unhelpfully) named the ‘Acme Silent Dog Whistle 535’, as noted above no whistle is truly silent. If it were nothing would be able to hear it! Set at its highest frequency humans can hear the 535 – but only just. What your dog hears is far louder and travels up to an amazing 1.5km. Designed with special air directors the frequency produced is tightly controlled. Adjustable through a wide range of frequencies using a screw piston mechanism, you can adjust the pitch until it’s at the optimum pitch for any particular dog, making it a most versatile whistle which can be used with all breeds. A booklet is supplied with each 535 giving easy instructions on adjusting the whistle and training your dog. Manufactured from solid brass the 535 is the ultimate dog training whistle which will last for, literally, ages. As a clue to their popularity, it’s interesting to note that the 210.5 is one of two models of whistle that Acme produce in a wide range of colours (the other is the slightly lower-pitched 211.5). Of their other whistles, none are produced in more than two colours. That tells a story!

At a lower level of sophistication (and therefore also lower price) is the ‘Thunderer’. This model, with the classic appearance and trilling sound of a referee’s whistle, is the one which may be most closely matched by a ‘high street’ whistle. Except, we’d suggest, its quality.

Are dog whistles a good idea?
A dog whistle can be a great training tool for a dog, if used properly. It is extremely distinct, silent to others, and the high frequency cannot be easily replicated. As a result, hunting, herding, and police dogs are commonly trained using a whistle.
As a clue to their popularity, it’s interesting to note that the 211.5 is one of two models of whistle that Acme produce in a wide range of colours (the other is the slightly higher-pitched 210.5). Of their other whistles, none are produced in more than two colours. That tells a story!

With its medium pitch, the 212 is a great all-rounder with a sound that is well within human hearing. The 212 whistle holds its pitch, or frequency, irrespective of how hard it is blown. This whistle is especially accurate over distance and works very well with Pointers, Setters, Retrievers and most Terriers. It is an excellent whistle for harder to train dogs and heavy cover situations.
From their entire, comprehensive, range, just two models of Acme whistles account for 99% (and possibly more!) of our whistle sales – those models are the 210.5 and the 211.5. These two whistles are visually identical – the only difference is between their pitches. The sound produced by these whistles is ‘constant’ – they do not contain a ‘pea’ which would create a ‘trilling’ sound.

The 210.5 has been developed with an extremely high pitch and is the optimum choice for spaniel breeds. The 210.5 emits a ‘constant’ sound without a ‘trill’.

What are the advantages of using a whistle? These are important questions to consider when looking into using a dog whistle. You may have to try out a few different types of whistles to see which one offers you the range of sounds you (and your dog) prefer. Start by learning how to use the whistle properly (practice, practice, practice), and then play around with the sounds to figure out which tones will work for which commands.There are two types of whistles to choose from: audible or silent — with ”silent” in this case meaning silent for humans, not dogs. Some whistles are equipped with adjustable pitches, too.Dogs respond to even the quietest of whistles because they hear at a much higher frequency than humans. ”Dogs and people hear about the same at low frequencies of sound (around 20Hz). This changes at high frequencies of sound, where dogs hear up to 70-100kHz, much better than people at only 20kHz,” say scientists at the University of Adelaide in Australia, and dogs ”hear sound frequencies at least three times as high compared to people.” It may seem as if dogs react to a noise that’s not there when, in reality, they’re highly sensitive to something we can’t hear.

Be mindful of other animals in your home and surroundings, too. Cats hear high-frequency sounds even better than dogs and will respond accordingly. Always remember that what seems like a benign noise to you can be disruptive and uncomfortable for your dog (and cat).
Whistles have been used for dog training and communication for generations. Prior to that, humans communicated with their dogs by whistling the old-fashioned way, with their breath. You can use a whistle to ”talk” with your dog and establish a behavioral routine, just as you do with verbal commands or clicker training for ”sit” and ”stay” or playing fetch.

How many Hz is a dog whistle?
about 35,000 Hz Invented in 1876 by Sir Francis Galton as a tool to help test the upper limits of audible sound on humans, the dog whistle emits a sound measuring about 35,000 Hz, well beyond the average range of 20 to 20,000 Hz that is detectable by the human ear. Do dog whistles hurt dogs’ ears?
Because dogs hear at a much higher frequency than humans, they’re naturally more sensitive to sounds. Don’t use the whistle close to their ears, and avoid blowing it at full strength. As Dr. Pippa Elliott, BVMS, MRCVS, writes for Petful, these ”noises to the top of the dog’s ability to hear can cause pain if they are loud enough. It’s like the difference between a referee blowing a whistle on the football field versus blowing that same whistle directly in your ear.” That’s a big difference.A dog whistle won’t harm your dog when used properly. Read the manufacturer information carefully and speak with your veterinarian about any questions you have.

What frequency dog whistle should I use?
For most dogs, a 35,000 Hz dog whistle will be perfectly audible; dogs can hear high-pitched sounds up to 65,000 Hz.
Training your furry friend is an important part of being a dog parent; plus, it has many benefits, including socialization and obedience. If you’re looking to incorporate a training tool, a dog whistle may be a good option for you and your pup.

Many dog parents prefer silent whistles because there’s less noise interference for people. This type of whistle, invented in 1876 by Sir Francis Galton, was used to test hearing levels in humans, cats and dogs. The term ”ultrasonic whistle” is more accurate because, as noted above, the whistle isn’t silent — it emits ultrasonic sounds to which dogs respond. According to researchers at Psychology Today, the advantage of this type of whistle is that these sound signals travel farther than the human voice and, therefore, can reach dogs at farther distances.

What are the 4 whistle commands?
Whistle CommandsTwo Blasts – “Archers to the shooting line.”One Blast – “Begin shooting.”Three Blasts – “Walk forward and get your arrows.”Five or More Blasts – “STOP SHOOTING immediately and put your arrows in your quiver.”
Audible whistles are helpful when you’re working out the sounds you want to use and ensure that you’re being consistent. This style looks much like a whistle used at sporting events and, in fact, it’s used during herding dog events.På grund av tekniska begränsningar kan Kelkoo inte garantera fullständig noggrannhet eller fullständighet av information från butikerna.

What is the difference between a 210.5 and 211.5 whistle?
The 210.5 has been developed with an extremely high pitch to be best-suited to spaniel breeds; the 211.5, with a slightly lower pitch (although to the human ear the difference is almost indiscernible), is best suited to retriever breeds.

What does 210.5 mean dog whistle?
210.5 – this is an easy blowing dog whistle and produces a single high pitch frequency tone. Suitable for all dogs, especially older or hard of hearing dogs. The best of the range for close work. Good sound at gentle blowing.
You may be thinking: why use a whistle to train my dog? There are many reasons why whistles are more beneficial than voice commands for dog training, with a consistent command being one of them. For many pro dog trainers a whistle is seen as their most important tool, and if you want a well-trained dog it’s important for you to view a whistle in the same way.Expert trainer, Jason Mayhew, recommends introducing the whistle during a canines favourite time – dinner. “The first thing we’d do is put food down and use a couple of pips on the whistle to announce food”. This allows for the dog to have positive connotation with the sound of the whistle, making them want to obey it in the future for the possibility of a reward.

Everyone dreams of the moment they can bring their first puppy home. It’s such an exciting step to take and a milestone moment that you are guaranteed to remember for the rest of your life. Although, you want to make sure you remember it for the right reasons, and not because your little bundle of furry joy has caused havoc…again!
