The Best Silent Acme Dog Whistle-Stop Dog Barking with Acme Whistles

Updated on April 4, 2011

Silent dog whistles are used all over the world in dog training classes, are the favourite of professional dog handlers and are a useful training aid for your pet dog..

Your dogs hearing works at a different frequency to us humans, they have the ability to hear sounds we can't.

Manufacturers of dog whistles specifically silent dog whistles have spent years refining their craft, getting the right tone, the right shape and the right material has been a challenge but given the importance of matching a training whistle to your dogs audiology system it has been worth it for the owner, dog and supplier.

Dogs respond to sounds better than voices; as a result many dog owners now use silent dog whistles as an effective tool to stop their dog barking. A short "pip" on a silent dog whistle can stop your dog barking without upsetting the neighbours.

If you have read my article on Basic Dog Training Whistles; you will know that I do not recommend using a silent dog whistle in early puppy training.

However once you have passed the very basic stages of dog training the silent dog whistle can be introduced.

This article will look at some of the more popular whistles and manufacturers to help you make the right choice of dog whistle for you and your dog.

There are many gun dog suppliers who have a vast range of dog whistles, some are very specialised but you can get a suitable dog training whistle here on line at a much more competitive price.

Acme dog training whistles are widely regarded as the best dog training whistles on the market. They are used by professional dog handlers, pet dog owners and are the preferred whistle of gun dog owners. Acme silent dog training whistles are often seen at the end of a whistle lanyard adorning the necks of the dog training fraternity.

Budget silent dog whistles

This selection of silent dog whistles I am calling the budget range.

They represent what I would call the lowest acceptable level in dog training whistles.

There are of course much lower priced dog whistles but given you are unable to hear them yourself meaning you wouldn't know if they were working or not, I would advise caution and buy the best quality dog whistle you can afford.
