Joggers and walkers sometimes ask which whistle will scare away aggressive dogs.

In other words, dog whistles are intended to serve one purpose only, and that is to signal one's own dog to obey certain commands.

They are not intended to scare away aggressive dogs, nor to quiet the neighbor's dog.
