Appy Hour: Dog Whistler
This is how you communicate on a frequency only heard by dogs! Seriously when I read about this app I couldn’t help but think, “PHONES ARE SO COOL.” Use this app to play a range of frequencies only audible to dogs. The reviews in the app store are hilarious too, full of “Get off my lawn!” attitudes:
My neighbors’ dog is fenced in next door to my home. Unfortunately he is a barker. If I want to read or whatever on my back screened porch his barking makes it almost impossible to concentrate. I noticed this app in the App Store. I started to say no bark and set the app to 20,000 Hz and practiced with several different settings until one worked. Now,if he starts to bark, I turn it on for a few seconds and he stops. Love it!
You can design different whistles and share them with your friends on social media. I have no idea why you would want to do this, but I feel comfort in knowing that it is possible.
