    You don’t need a whistle!! just basic training
    I heard that silent whistles can hurt dogs ears!
    When the dog nips at your trouser legs say No! (not yelling but firmly)
    and walk away with no eye contact.

    I have a standard whistle only used for one thing – far away recall.
    If you are looking for something to make noise when he does something good – then try a clicker.

    I agree with Greekman on this, I hate silent whistles too. I bought one and it didn’t work. Stick to commands, or at least, audible whistles.
    I only use whistles for “come” when the dog is far away.

    The whistle is better utilized for distance work when your voice may not be heard as clearly. I hate silent whistles…if I cannot hear it, I cannot be 100% sure that my dog did and I cannot therefore correct a mistake or disobedience!
    Stay with voice commands for now. Hope I helped!
