Logan Whistles have been used by shepherds for decades to communicate complex and nuanced instructions to their dogs. They have a ‘voice’ that all dogs respond particularly well to – soft notes for close work and sharp tones that can carry over extreme distances – which also makes them ideal for all kinds of outdoor activities.
In this guide we decode the shepherds’ whistle language by breaking it down into five basic sounds – the building blocks we have identified as the basis for all whistle commands.
You will find recorded sound clips and visual illustrations of these five basic whistle sounds to help you perfect these basic whistle tones. You can then listen to the personal whistle command sets of successful sheepdog handlers to hear and learn how to create a ‘set’ of whistle sounds that work together – giving you the information and sounds you need to build up your very own 'whistle language'.
You will also find help and advice on
- how to use your Logan Whistle - including a new video demonstration
- how to begin to train a dog on whistle commands
- the relevance of frequency, pitch, tone and timbre for whistle commands
- sound clips and visual guidance on building a ‘set’ of commands
- how to work two or more dogs together using the same whistle
- advice on selecting a Logan Whistle for your own needs

The quality of these whistles is amazing, worlds beyond the Acme halfmoon whistles. Thanks for making them available, and very happy I purchased the whistle command guide with it
Now that was the best information on the whistle that I have read and listened to. I started practicing two years ago when I got my puppy. She is about to be 2 years old and I needed to start introducing the whistle commands to her soon, but was still having a hard time. I just couldn't understand why the sounds all seem the same. With your advice on the basic whistle tones it has now all started to make sense to me. Another part that helped is breathing normally into the whistle. I always blew hard through the whistle and when I finally relaxed and didn't force the sound out... it worked!
I've purchased other folks how to material, and viewed numerous videos on Youtube to no avail. Then I found your site and took another chance that y'all would have the information I needed to help me master the sound. Well... it did (not a master, but better). I can't believe the difference in such a short time. So, I wanted to thank y'all for the information given and that it made a difference.
