A dog whistle is a type of
whistle used in
the training of
range of a dog whistle is largely out of the range of human
hearing. Typically, a dog whistle is within the range of 5800
Hz to 12400 Hz (disputed
talk page). Some dog whistles have adjustable sliders for
active control of the frequency produced.
Depending on the way the whistle is used, a trainer may simply gather a dog's
attention or inflict pain for the purpose of behavior modification.
The name dog whistle is often used for both lung-powered whistles as well as
electronic devices that emit
piezoelectric emitters. The electronic variety are sometimes coupled with
bark detection circuits in an effort to curb barking behavior.
Some political observers have used the phrase "dog-whistle
politics" to refer to the use of words and phrases that one's political
allies will recognize and appreciate but that may not mean anything to other
listeners. For example, members of the United States'
Party sometimes speak of a "culture
of life", which sounds innocuous but is typically interpreted by political
allies as a reaffirmation of the speaker's opposition to
rights. So, the idea is that one uses words and phrases that only one's
political allies will hear and recognize.
