I've bought one and using it at home for now to call Stella from another room. It works as long as there's a treat afterwards. Can't take her to the park yet as she's still in season. Will try using it with the commands, but she's such a stubborn little moo

They're not stubborn! They just understand what they want and how to get what they want!

Well, it sort of works...She still ignores it sometimes if there's something on the ground she wants to keep sniffing and sniffing... and sniffing until I lose my patience and come to drag her away from it But she's learned that there's a treat after a whistle so so she comes even if I have to blow it several times to finally get her attention.
Not around dogs though, still a very big problem with it. She will follow other dogs, not paying any attention to me, I have to run around the park trying to put her on the lead.

She's getting there...just call it work in progress
Try giving her an 'ordinary' treat if you have to whistle more than once. If she comes back first whistle give her something special i.e. liver, chicken,sausage or what ever she absolutely loves xx

Most dogs work for "well done, good boy/girl" but not the Apsos! has to be extra extra special treats
Good idea though Elaine, I'll try that x

Perseverence should help to become used to a whistle x
Im going to try a whistle with Zali, she also has selective hearing!
But I cant do those loud whistles, all I achieve when I try is a big dribbly spit mess!
