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. The bark detector feature of this application triggers a tone when the sound level exceeds a threshold. This feature, in addition to training, can be used to help you train your dog to stop barking. 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 READ BEFORE YOU BUY.
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.

Its a waste of a dollar, after hours of trying at every frequency and setting the dog wont shut up
Advertised as an upgrade. Doesn't appear to be any different. I guess that's what you get for 99 cents? Zero stars for this one.
At 3 in the morning, after 4 hours of frantic yelping (interrupted only by two potty breaks) from my 4 month old pooch who was on a very tired day 5 of crate training with no discernible progress, I was ready to try anything to avoid giving in. My very recently rescued pit bull mix would start out whimpering, but would quickly work himself up into a house rattling frenzy. He would calm himself down, only to start over again in a few moments. We exercised him plenty; he would sleep when we were in the room with him. But as soon as we went to the next room, he started to get crazy.
I wondered if there might be some sort of app that would respond somehow to his antics and came across this one. The reviews seemed to be mixed, but like I said, I was willing to try anything.
As you might have surmised from 5 stars, it worked great. We're on night two of quiet, and after deploying the app set to 14.0K pure tone with a bark threshold of 74, it took less than 15 minutes for George to catch on. I think the tone breaks up his pattern and prevents him from getting so worked up that he can't sleep.
We didn't train him to respond to the tone, so we're probably just lucky...your mileage may vary!
Technology is great!!
