Dog training whistles allow handlers and owners to issue commands to working dogs. These whistles use a frequency that is just at the edge or outside the range of human hearing. Only the dog hears the whistle clearly. The whistles carry the sound of the command over a greater distance than voice commands alone. Some of these whistles work over a few hundred yards. This is advantageous for hunters or herders in the field. Plastic whistles cost less than metal whistles, but they may not last as long. Some advanced dog training whistles allow for using multiple, precise frequencies. This means the handler can issue specific commands based on the frequency of the sound.
