Collection: Acme Whistles

Acme Whistles

J Hudson & Co was founded in 1870 by brothers Joseph and James Hudson. The company is world famous for the manufacturer of whistles and continues today over 150 years later as Acme Whistles.

Acme Whistles has grown to become the largest and most famous producer of whistles in the world, all whistles are made here in the UK at their headquarters in Birmingham, England.

Joseph and James Hudson were pioneers from their first two products, both world firsts, the Metropolitan and Thunderer. 15 decades later J Hudson & Co now offer hundreds of whistles from dog training to military whistles and are well recognised as the premier supplier of whistles in the world.

Primary Pets is delighted to bring to you a range of Acme dog training whistles. The 210.5 and 211.5 (each offering a slightly different tone) are colourful, robust and easy to use. We have added a colour matched lanyard to ensure that your whistle is never lost.


Dog Training Whistles

The first specialist dog training whistle was the iconic ACME silent dog whistle which was developed in 1935 and revolutionised the way that people communicated with their dogs. Since those days we have recognised a growing need in the market for high-quality dog training whistles with different specifications. While there are benefits to choosing a silent whistle, there are certainly also benefits to choosing another from our range; it all depends on the kind of training you undertake, your dog’s species, and the environment they train in.

ACME dog training whistles offer a consistent sound that doesn’t change depending on the person blowing it or how it is blown. Consistency is one of the most important factors in dog training, and a consistent dog training whistle reduces the confusion your dog may experience during sessions. These whistles are weather-proof and the sound carries very well in all conditions; they are ideal when using positive reinforcement techniques and can be used for close-in and long distance work.

Acme Whistles and Covid 19

All Acme whistles will now have SUPRA-GUARD antimicrobial additives, which are proven to protect against harmful bacteria. From 2020 the new plastics will be included as standards in all Acme plastic whistles, designed for everything from sports coaches to dog trainers.

What are Antimicrobials?

Antimicrobial plastic technologies are used on all Acme whistles and it offers protection against potentially harmful bacteria. 

The SUPRA-GUARD Antimicrobials’ used in all Acme whistles are safe, non-toxic, fully compliant and can effectively inhibit the growth of microorganisms. It uses an active agent that prevents the build-up of bacteria on the surface of the plastic achieving a 99.9% reduction in the spread of surface bacteria.

What does this mean for you?

SUPRA-GUARD antimicrobial plastic whistles still have the same great look and sound. 

However, we hope that our customers and pet owners can be confident in the fact that their whistle is as clean and safe as possible at all times. 

Primary Pets recommend cleaning your whistle regularly to ensure its cleanliness, as well as the following good practices:

  • Never share your whistle
  • Always clean with anti-bacterial wipes
  • Dry with a clean cloth
  • The whistle can be submerged in boiling water then must be dried thoroughly before use
  • A pipe cleaner can be used to dislodge any fluff from the mouthpiece or window.
