It is Spring time and beautiful weather here in California. Many of my neighbors walking their dogs passing by my house fence. Been all day, Charlie was barking really really loud at some point quite vicious, but behind the fence. I couldn't stop him, and he would not listen to my command "come". Total uncontrollable. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif
All of the sudden I heard a whistle blow, I believe from the apartment neighbor. Charlie was startled, came back to me with his tail between his legs. That did it, he stopped barking. I'm just wondering, can I do the same thing? I buy a whistle blower, maybe he'll listen to me. Isn't it the hunters use this kind of method too to retrieve their dogs?
Is it me or Charlie that I always find myself in a state of beyond my control. He has fogotten all of his training commands!

Beagles can get VERY single minded. At that point they go deaf and blind to everything outside their point of interest.

When Summer and Murphy get this way, I whistle... LOUDLY! I gets their attention and the usually come running.

I don't see why a whistle wouldn't work for you as well, especially since it seems to already work on Charlie.

wow, that's a great idea. Monty is always howling his head off at all the passer-bys and the neighborhood dogs. Between Monty, the lab next door, and a yappy lil' terrier on hte other side next door, there's never a moment of peace on our block! i'm going to try the whistle thing..maybe it'll quiet all of them!

Havent tried a whistle on ours yet. The only time they are really noisy is out walking when a dog comes towards them. They get so worked up they dont respond to us at all.
