A dog whistle (also known as silent whistle or Galton’s whistle) is a type of whistle used in the training of dogs and cats.

The frequency range of a dog whistle is largely out of the range of human hearing. Typically, a dog whistle is within the range of 16 to 22 kHz with only the frequencies below 20 kHz audible to the human ear. Some dog whistles have adjustable sliders for active control of the frequency produced.

Depending on the way the whistle is used, a trainer may simply gather a dog’s attention or inflict pain for the purpose of behavior modification.

The name dog whistle is often used for both lung-powered whistles as well as electronic devices that emit ultrasonic sound via piezoelectric emitters. The electronic variety are sometimes coupled with bark detection circuits in an effort to curb barking behavior.

ACME Dog whistles are probably the best available and are British made.

They are famous for the 535 Silent Dog whistle. As well as training dogs (can help quiten dogs) it is also the International standard for training mammals (seals, dolphins, killer whales!!)
