How does it work?
Dogs are capable of hearing sounds at much higher frequencies than people. A dog whistle works by emitting a high frequency tone in a range that a dog does not ordinarily encounter. The highest frequency a normal middle aged human can hear is 12,000-14,000 Hz, so don’t be alarmed if you can’t hear all of the tones yourself. These high frequency tones have the effect of immediately getting a dog’s attention. Dog whistles are typically used as part of a training routine designed to train your dog to do tricks or for behavior modification. A pure tone is much easier for a dog to distinguish compared to verbal commands. Different sound patterns can be used to trigger different responses. For example, two short bursts could mean stop and one long burst could mean lie down. Dog whistles are great training tools and has been used successfully with all breeds.
How do you tune your dog whistle?
One method is to adjust the frequency of the tone, while your dog is sleeping, until your dog’s ears perk up. When this happens you have found a frequency that your dog is sensitive to.
Please note that dogs may not have an intrinsic response to high frequency tones such as those used in this application. Therefore, you must train your dog to respond to the tones much like you would train your dog to respond to verbal commands. Through this training, many dogs will develop a conditioned response to respond in accordance with its training when it hears the tone. If your dog is not trained to respond to the tone, your dog may not respond to the tone. Recognize the possibility that success in dog training may not come as fast as you may anticipate, but relentless effort and consistency of commands will sooner than later reward you with success. Please consider this before purchasing our application.

What's New in Version 2.2
Compatible with iOS 7.
My neighbors have two of the most annoying little dogs that literally work themselves into a shrieking, crying, barking hysteria on a regular basis. Their shrieks and high pitched barks are so gnarly it sounds like someone is killing them. Thank God I found this app! I just turn it on...mess with the various settings with the volume as high as it will go and sure enough within seconds those two little monsters are so confused and their ears hurting so badly they immediately shut up! Works every time! And I must say I do enjoy disturbing those little suckers! Why anyone would ever want to live with one of those disgusting little creatures is beyond me. The app works perfect for. Used it just 5 minute ago and no whining, shrieking, barking little varmints. Thank God!!!
Works perfectly with my maltipoo
I recently adopted an 18 month maltipoo. His previous owners did not train him at all! We couldn't take him on walks because he'd bark and tug every single time he saw something with a pulse. Now all I have to do is play "set 2" and he stops barking and pulling on his leash instantly! So glad I downloaded this app before I bought him a painful shock collar. I've only been using the app for 2 days, but he's already made a huge improvement. I'm actually walking him right now and we passed a squirrel without a single peep!! Hard to believe, but it's true!
My app works great/husband's does not
I love, love this app as our annoying next door neighbor's dog doesn't bark and acts so crazy when it is on that our neighbors take the dog inside.
Only ISSUE: my husband's app does not work as the Sound Meter isn't moving on his. We have deleted the app several times and then added it back, but it still doesn't work. Really wish we could get this to work on his phone because it is the bomb; thus the reason for the four star. Note, if it doesn't work for you look at the Sound Meter to see if it is moving; otherwise, it isn't working properly.
