'We are a family business that has been designing and making our own sheepdog whistles in the UK for decades.

The designs have been perfected by us to help our working dogs hear commands at a distance, often out of sight, putting the dogs at ease and helping them get on with the task in hand. My father, Harford Logan is a seven-time national sheepdog champion (six times for Ireland and once for Scotland from his time farming the mountainous Ben Vair in the Western Highlands of Scotland) and so his designs were also perfected to give him an edge at sheepdog trials.  We now sell all over the world through our web-site and through local trade partners and supply the International Sheepdog Society, amongst others.'  Joanne McHardy

 


Harford Logan's daughter, Joanne McHardy, has been representing artists since 1995 when she set up The McHardy Sculpture Company in London. Now based in rural West Sussex she has commissioned a number of original works of art, jewellery and accessories depicting the border collie available here on our web-site and from the International Sheep Dog Society.

WHY BUY OUR WHISTLES ?

Logan Whistles have consistently been the best selling whistles among border collie handlers and sheepdog trial competitors for a number of decades. Now they are increasingly being adopted by dog handlers generally who appreciate the versatility of the whistle and the speed with which the dog reacts to the sounds they produce.

Our whistles are all made using quality materials – stainless steel is culinary standard 304, the brass is just the same as is used in musical instruments - which of course our whistles are! For peace of mind, our aluminium whistles are anodised so there is a seal between the metal and the mouth.

Harford Logan has been perfecting the design of these whistles for his own use since the 1950s. Their purpose has been to help him communicate with his working dogs using a wide range of commands, both up close and at a distance of up to two kilometres.

Harford's designs have also given him an edge at sheepdog trials, helping he and his dogs win the Irish National Sheepdog Championship six times and then the Scottish National Championship during his time farming the mountainous Ben Vair in the Western Highlands of Scotland. 

We now sell these whistles all over the world and not just to Border Collie owners. Designed to carry sound over very long distances in some of the harshest conditions, they are also excellent for use with all dog breeds, as a sporting whistle or even as a safety or leisure whistle. We provide fast delivery worldwide.
