SportDOG Brand Roy Gonia Special Whistle
This whistle is very good for training your labrador or ant other kind of hunting dog. It is loud enough for your dog to hear it and not to disturb your hunting partners. It is a very durable product and i would recomend it to anyone who is thinking of training a hunting dog.

After Thanksgiving on a very cold day I was out pheasant hunting with my young Vizsla. This is his first year hunting. The dog is whistle trained. We were seeing no birds. Late in the morning my dog jumped a jack rabbit. The temptation was just too much for him, and he took off after it. At the time I had a traditional metal whistle around my neck. I instinctively put the whistle to my mouth to whistle the dog back. I immediately realized this was a mistake as the whistle stuck to my lips like the boy at the flag pole in the movie Christmas Story.
I pulled off the whistle and bled like a stuck pig. That pretty much ended the hunt. When I got home I went on the internet to find a plastic whistle. I checked out various ones. But this was the best buy and had high ratings. I ordered it on line from Bass Pro Shops had it in a couple of days. I use it every time I take the dog out regardless of the weather. He responds well and I don't have to worry about it getting stuck to my lips. I would recommend this to any bird dog handle but especially is you live in colder areas.

This whistle has a ball which can be a problem in cold weather. But what can you say I blow the whistle and both of my dogs come. Great Deal.
