If you'd like to use a sheepdog whistle, but don't know where to start, there are two tutorials in the Online Training Tutorials library that will help.
In The Sheepdog Whistle Andy demonstrates a tried and tested technique to get you blowing your whistle within minutes. Once you can make a sound, any sound, you'll find you quickly improve and can begin to develop your own whistle commands.
The Sheepdog Whistle tutorial has had lots of positive feedback from people who've finally discovered the key to their whistle - sometimes after years of trying.
Teach Your Dog Whistle Commands proves that it's harder to learn to blow your whistle commands than to teach the commands to your dog. We describe two methods of teaching the commands so you can pick whichever seems more natural to you. To demonstrate the techniques, Teach Your Dog Whistle Commands includes an actual training session, when Andy taught the whistle commands to Bronwen.
The Sheepdog Whistle and Teach Your Dog Whistle Commands can be found in the Whistle category in the online tutorials library.
Our first training DVD, First Steps In Border Collie Sheepdog Training, features The Sheepdog Whistle and covers the basics of sheep, dog, handler and theory to get your training started. It's an ideal introduction for any aspiring handler (we're told).
