Do dog whistles work?

My son bought a dog whistle with his allowance thinking he would have better luck getting them to listen to him by using the whistle. He did not understand that he cannot hear the whistle only dogs can hear it. It appears that my dogs cannot hear a dog whistle either, after the two of us spent almost an hour adjusting and blowing into his whistle our dogs did not respond at all. Their was no indication from the dogs that they heard anything from the whistle. No ears perking up, no head turning, nothing.

    Thanks for the tips! Not sure what the brand is, I know it is not an Acme. Our dogs are sit means sit trained and we used electronic collars to train them. He does not remember the collars, but wants the dogs to obey him and they don't.
