Pavlovian Whistle Cellphones

Dogs can famously hear sounds that are inaudible to us, and be trained in obeying these sounds as commands.

But even dogs can only hear sounds coming from a limited (albeit substantial) distance.

Ensure the flock is safe even when you're on the other side of the globe with the Pavlovian Whistle ringtone technology by simply attaching the Pavlovian to your best friend's collar. Satellite models available.

You will no longer be required to purse your lips together, and blow

       Hi, Lassie can't come to the phone right now. To leave a message with her owner...

       Hi Lassie, I can't come to the phone right now. Leave a message after the beep!   

       Lassie: Wuruff, wor, wuf, wof, wuruff!

       I think I preferred your version, tc, to the actual real world implementation (which looks incredibly bulky for this day and age).

       I thought it was going to be a ringtone: you could tell you had a call by the barking dogs in your vicinity... [+] anyways.

       I agree, DrBob, dog doesn't seem too comfortable
