Rated 2 out of 5 by j0nh poor quality materials
Bought this whistle after losing one that I'd had for years. The poor quality of the metal used (aluminum?) does not produce a crisp whistle, and doesn't carry far enough to be useful in a large field.

There are two things this is supposed to do: be silent for humans and audible to dogs. It fails both. I adjusted to ring and tried every possible combination but only I could hear it.

I can't believe it--I bought this item--at the higher end of the cost scale, got it home, and they did not bore a hole in their metal whistle--there was no whistle--just a long metal thing. Save your money and do not buy this item!

This whistle works great! I had to learn how to take the whistle from its case it came in. I ordered the large whistle which has a lanyard. At first, I did not know where the whistle was, what part to whistle through or how to adjust it. I was careful because I did not want to break some thing. I unscrewed the one side that exposes the part of the whistle that can be adjusted to different pitches. The other side, however, was still connected to the lanyard and I could not find the mouth piece. Finally, I decided to pull on the other side and it slid right off, exposing the mouth piece for which to whistle. Everything else is self explanatory after exposing the whistle. You put the whistle in your mouth and the other end has a little knob that screws up tight to the whistle or down to create various pitches. Adjust it with your dogs help, they will let you know immediately. It states on the package to wait until your dog is asleep to try it out, but I did not have to do this in order to find that it works great! I read all the negative reviews and it definitely made me a little skeptical; but I am glad I made this purchase. I ordered two!
I think one of the main reasons for the bad reviews are from folks not knowing how to get to the whistle to actually use it. One chained end slides off with a little tug to expose the mouth piece and the other chained end unscrews to expose the end of the whistle that is adjustable for various pitches.
