What is Dog Whistle that only dogs can hear ?
General information about the whistles
The construction of the first whistle was developed by Briton Francis Galton back in 1883. Hamilton was the trainer and whistles used in the circus. Today whistles can be used for all types of pets. It is known that dog, unlike humans, can pick up sounds that emits dog whistle. In practice, it is clear that the dogs pay for such sounds much more attention than a human team.
High frequency sound is fed the dog shows that the animal must be made as opposed to master voice, tone, which can vary. In such cases, the animal can not understand what he wants from her man, accordingly, it will not feel so confident. Experts recommend training dogs to work with a whistle from puppy hood.
We now turn to the principle of operation of these attributes. It is no secret that the whistle emits acoustic vibrations. To help you be more clear to its operating principle, we consider it on the example of a conventional kitchen knife that hand movement through the air. In this case, the blade – this attribute cylindrical cavity. Instead, pressurized gas is supplied air which is necessary for the emergence of sound vibrations.
In the case of the example it is characterized by frequency sound vibrations’ nozzle sizes. Today, virtually all models of accessories that are sold in the domestic market, operating at a frequency of 170 kHz. This rate is too high for a person, since the human ear can perceive signals whose frequency does not exceed 20 kHz. Accordingly, the sound emitted by the whistle can be heard by man. Pet, in turn, are able to recognize the sounds similar to a distance of 450 meters.
How to use Dog Whistle that only dogs can hear ?
With the help of ultrasonic whistle can train the dog by the same techniques as with conventional audio (voice) command. As far as I know, with the help of an ultrasonic signal, many dogs are taught to approach the owner, as well as to lay down a specific whistle. Basically, it is necessary for hunters. The exhibition attempts to use the whistle as a means to attract the attention of the dogs in the ring.
Methods of teaching is simple. Let us consider the example of a dog laying. Instead of voice trainer team blows a whistle in a certain way (for example, twice), and then places the dog guidance method or natalkivaniya. Skill is polished in the same way as if it was done using a voice command. A dog trained lying down on the whistle in the distance at various distracting stimuli.
An example of developing an approach to the whistle. It is similar to the development team approach “to me!”. Puppy beckon whistle, showing him with a treat and prompting the move to the trainer. Delicacy fed the puppy run up to the trainer. If your puppy or young dog does not know what he should do, he strapped on a long leash and with a signal (whistle) poddergivaet leash, and then show a treat, prompting the dog to run up to the trainer. You can attract the attention of a playful dog, showing her a toy, not a treat (if you are interested in a toy it anymore). When a dog comes running, with her play, thereby encouraging it. Later, of course, conduct additional polishing approach, either through delicacy, playing hide-and-seek, or (for the more “otvlekuchih” dogs) with a long leash, and other tweaks.
It should be exactly sure that the signal applied to the dog, the standard that it is not confused team. If, for example, the trainer decided that “Down!” – Two short beeps, and of underground – a long one, you should not to be confused.
Perhaps it would be possible to teach a dog to distinguish the many options of the ultrasonic signals. Theoretically a set of commands, whistles can make more than a dozen (different variations of conventional dog whistle distinguishes perfectly). The problem with the use of ultrasonic whistle that trainer, due to the fact that he can not hear ultrasound can not control and standardization input signals. It is therefore difficult to determine, for example, for some reason the dog does not obey the order – or it simply distracted or whistle was a non-standard, or the whistle does not work, and so forth.
