0 Electronic dog whistle

It is sometimes called as “ultrasonic dog whistle” since the sounds produce is very high frequency that human ear can’t hear.  Human hears sounds with frequency from 20Hz up to 20 kHz, dog on the other hand has a wider hearing range- from 40Hz to 60 kHz (via Wikipedia.org).
The circuit below is an electronic whistle powered by 555 timer IC. The circuit can produce sound around 24khz.
