    Dog Whistles: the so-called Shepard whistle type. They look like a folded circle of metal that has been folded in half
    Can anyone give me some tips on how to make it work? I asked my son in law, he keeps sheep, and he said that he had never managed to make them work either
    I know that the fault is mine so "Help!"

    1) Place whistle in mouth and clench it between your teeth. Blow.
    2) Take out the whistle and look at it really, really hard. Repeat step (1).
    3) Pick whistle off ground. Place lanyard around neck and repeat step (1).
    4) Rinse off whistle. Repeat step (1)
    5) Get in car and drive far away from angry family.
    6) Repeat step (1)
    7) Wipe spit off steering wheel. Repeat step (1)
    8) Look around triumphantly when you produce an ear-piercing "screeeeeeet"
    9) Shout (in a fake Scottish accent), "Lie dooon! Lie dooon, dammya!

    1 Put whistle in mouth with the curved open edge facing outwards.
    2 Hold in the mouth so as to create a gap underneath the whistle. The back of the whistle will sit on the back of the tongue.
    3 Blow and by varying the blow, you will create different sounds.
    4 To make a wider range of sounds, move the tongue up and down varying the gap underneath the whistle. if you put your tongue against the lower hole it wont work
