Herding is made easy with the Acme Shepherds Mouth Whistle made in plastic! Sometimes called the "lip" whistle, the plastic model is great for herding in the winter months.  Plastic warms easily to keep your mouth from freezing while directing dogs.

Acme is the maker of the traditional whistle used by the English Shepherd to command his faithful sheep dog at long distances to round up and bring home the straying sheep.  Ten out of ten Border Collies agree, this is the only whistle they want to work with!

Comes in assorted colors, please allow us to choose for you.  If you have a color preference, please include it in the order notes, and we will try to accommodate you!

Shepherds Whistle Instructions:

1. Place the dog whistle in your mouth with the curved open edge facing outwards, with whistle resting on your tongue.

2. Hold in your mouth in such a way as to create a gap underneath the whistle. The back of the whistle will sit on the back of the tongue.

3. Blow and by varying the blow, and you will create different sounds.

4. To create an even wider range of sounds, move the tongue up and down reducing and widening the gap underneath the whistle.

Please note: if you place your tongue against the lower hole you will silence the whistle.

It doesn't matter which way up the whistle is placed. This whistle does require a few practice blows before you get a sound, but once one sound is achieved, it is clear sailing or whistling from there on.
