So for those of you who saw my post about my new Weimaraner, Gypsy, you know I am wanting to train her to follow a blood trail for hunting purposes, and to find deer antler sheds(for management purposes; tells you the health of the deer on your property, the approximate population on your property, the size of the deer on your property, etc). This means that, eventually, she may be working at a pretty good distance from me. For this reason I'm thinking about getting a dog whistle so I can control her at longer distances. My questions are... Sheepdog whistle so I can teach more commands through the whistle? Gundog whistle? What commands might I want to have with the whistle? -Come, obviously -Sit -Down -Freeze (?) -Stay--do I need to teach a stay command with the whistle? These are the ones that are coming to mind....gundog whistles are all long/short blasts, so I can't teach as many commands with the whistle. But do I really need that many? As far as I know, sheepdog whistles can be a little complicated to learn how to use. But I could teach many more commands--but again, how many do I really need? Which brings to mind another issue... The majority of the time, the shed hunting and the blood trailing will be on the same land, so I'm thinking I need to have two commands. Any ideas? "Track" for blood trailing and something else for sheds???? Or....?? I don't know, I'm just drawing a blank here. Anyone have any input in this area? Thanks in advance!
