What type of whistle do I need?

210.5 - a high pitch, single frequency, preferred by spaniel owners and trainers but is an excellent all-round dog whistle for close and distance control.

211.5 - a medium high pitch, single note, preferred by labrador and retriever breed owners and trainers. A good distance whistle.

212 - a medium pitch, a great all-rounder with a sound that is well within human hearing. This whistle holds its frequency no matter how loud you blow. This whistle is especially good over distance and works very well with Pointers, Setters, Retrievers, Labradors, and most Terriers. An excellent whistle for harder to train dogs and heavy cover situations.

What type of dummy should I start with?

If you’re starting out with a puppy, a snipe, puppy dummy or a dummy ball is easy for them to carry and can be used when they are older for hunting practice. The KONG Fetch Stick is great for dogs who have been retrieving tennis balls as it has the same feel but with the shape of a traditional dummy. To get the dog used to carrying some weight, start with a ½ lb canvas dummy before you progress to the heavier 1lb size. Check out our blog on gundog training dummies for more info.

What colour dummy should I start with?

When you want to build up a dog’s confidence to retrieve, it’s sensible to use a dummy that is easy for them to see. While a dog isn’t colour blind, the colours they can distinguish are more limited than ours. White or blue dummies are clearly visible against most backgrounds (obviously not snow, in the case of a white dummy!). These are ideal when you want the dog to be able to build up their confidence and find the dummy by sight. An orange, red or green dummy will make it more testing for them and will force them to use their nose. Check out our blog on canine colour vision for more info.

Do you have a physical shop?

At the current time, we don’t have a physical shop that you can visit

Can I send items as gifts?

You certainly can. You can send an eGift Card direct to someone by email or send physical items to someone by using their address as the shipping address at checkout. If you would like us add a message to the recipient too, just add a note at checkout.
