Now that you have your new furry best friend, it's time to make sure that they get trained properly! These apps make training easy.

Dog Whistle Free to Train Dog

Dog Whistle Free to Train Dog

Maoli Wang

You have a naughty dog? Forget about expensive dog training classes! Here comes the best free Dog Whistle app that will help you for sure.

Normally, a dog whistle is within the range of 16000 Hz to 40000 Hz with only the frequencies below 20000 Hz audible to the human ear. Our whistle has adjustable sliders for active control of the frequency produced.These kind of whistles are also used to determine the hearing range of people or for physics demonstrations.

*Use this new "leash" at a distance and never miss your friend!*
Everyone knows the situation: a dog runs out into the street, you want to call him. Traffic noise is, however, stronger than your voice and the dog does not respond. In that situation only a dog whistle can help, because the dog can discern it from all the other sounds.

Features:
-Variable frequency tone generator
-Sound level meter
-Saved Settings Bar

How to communicate with your dog?
There are two modes available:
-Manual: Touch the screen to play the dog whistle training up sound and move your finger to stop it
-Continuous: Touch the screen to play the sound and touch again to stop it

How to train your dog?
Here are some useful puppy training tips you should use. The first step in dog whistle training process is to select series of commands that will be used as signals. For example: two short whistle sounds could mean the command "stop", or one long whistle sound to command "sit". To help you teach the dog, combine verbal commands with the whistle commands. So for the command "sit", give the verbal command accompanied with a dog whistle noise to connect the verbal command with a whistle sound. Applying this and other commands to the dog, you will make the understanding of whistle sounds easier.

TRAINING INSTRUCTIONS:

- Pick a frequency for positive response. Then use it the times when your pet does something right. We suggest a low frequency because they are more pleasant for pets' ears.
- Pick a higher frequency for wrong response. Use it at times when your pet does something wrong.

- You may also pick a frequency to call your pet. Use highest frequency since higher frequencies reach further.
positive response 12000Hz, short sound,
wrong response 15000Hz, short sound
call 18000Hz, about 1sec.

Please email us if you have any suggestions.

REVIEWS
It works - byOttlight - Sep 26, 2015
I've been having a problem house breaking my 4 1/2 old puppy. I started using this app and she was accident free the first day. It's very accurate nearly to the minute she has to go potty. I emailed the info to the puppy class trainer. It's very easy to use.

Fantastic App! - byHot K - May 6, 2014
I LOVE this app. I really needed something to help me make heads or tails out of mine & my new puppies day so we could have a smooth, fun house training process. Well, this app provides that! It certainly delivers what it promises & more! The app is easy to use & fun. It sorts out all the patterns of our new Sproodle & I feel less stressed. Def give this app a try if you haven't house trained a dog before, or maybe even if you have :)

Great tool! - bymanwdaplan - Apr 24, 2014
Amazingly accurate at predicting my dogs needs. Also, a very simple and clean (and cute) interface that makes the training process much less frustrating.
Love this app!

byJonasfann1 - Apr 20, 2015 - Really very cool for any owner of a new puppy! LOVE using this app!!
