More than just a keyring, this nifty functional brass whistle is a great gift for a dog owner. A whistle can be heard far better by a dog over a distance than a human voice, and it’s a lot easier (and less embarrassing) to blow a whistle than yell at a pet hound that has wandered too far. Dogs also seem to have sharper responses to whistles than verbal commands. A humble whistle is also recognized as a piece of emergency gear. It is a signal device that works day or night. As long as you have the breath to blow it, the whistle can attract attention in foul weather or fair. But there is more to the use of a signal whistle than just blowing on it until you deafen yourself. There are “international whistle codes”. Three blasts of the whistle is an international distress call, which is loosely translated to “Help me!” Two blasts of the whistle is a call-back signal which means “Come here.” One blast can mean “Where are you?”. Each whistle blast should last 3 seconds.
This is a regular size whistle (4cm x 2.1cm x 2cm) made entirely of brass. The keychain's overall length (including chain etc.) is 10.5cm.
