    Acme Thunderer-Small-#560 Whistle
    November 11, 2022
    Purchased this whistle because of “Steve’s Pick” recommendation. Whistle has good volume, works well in the wind and the dog responds nicely to it. The price of the pistol was more than reasonable, good quality and fast shipping.
    • Good quality, good volume and good value.
    • None noted.

    This whistle was bought to replace an old standby that one is my puppies decided was a chew toy. I'm very happy with this whistle. It works well in the wind and the dogs seem to hear it well.
    • Works when wet.
    • Loud.
    • Pea-less.
    • Works great in hunting conditions.
    • Not as loud as some whistles.

    Audible control is easily done due to pea inside instead of other materials. Short blast are able to be done hands free. Overall great whistle for training.
    • Pea inside instead of plastic

    It does indeed thunder.

    My dogs are whistle-trained, which saves a lot of yelling and frustration. My old whistle finally wore out after many years. The Acme small size is not all that small, and it puts out a lot of volume. Very pleased with it. At its ridiculously low price, it is without a doubt the greatest bargain in dog training and control on the market. I bought two, to keep an extra in my truck should I forget or lose the first one. The Acme whistle sure beats yelling my lungs out at a stubborn dog. It carries a lot further than I can yell, too. Can't lose with this whistle.
    • It's really loud.

    Why in black?
    January 14, 2021
    This is a good whistle, very recognizable and loud enough. I'd give it 5 stars if they'd make the dang thing in ORANGE. Sometimes, when you need the whistle, unless it's on a lanyard around your neck, the black color makes it hard to see. This may sound picky, but there are times when you need to locate the whistle fast: orange would make it that much easier.
    • good sound; loud enough, sturdy construction
    • should be offered in a more visible color

    I like the high pitch it works great in the wind. I have a Lab and sent him to be trained at Rocha Retrievers, the owner uses this whistle and I wanted to keep my dog on the same whistle he was trained with.

    I have two old Acme small thunderer whistles, and this version is much larger. It works well, but prefer the smaller size.

    Was really looking for the old Acme thunderer, it had a smaller inlet, and I could trill better with it.
