Default Dog Whistle for survival

Something that I have pondered from time to time is the effectiveness of a dog whistle in a survival situation. It could be used for flushing out small prey and possibly warding off predatory canines in a wilderness or urban setting. Has anyone looked into this or read anything on the subject?

if you pack everything that might have a use in a specialized situation like this you would have a very heavy bag. Normal whistle might be better. unless you have a trained dog you plan on bringing along.

We didn't have whistle for dogs, we had "dog stop" spray.
A big dog would ask for more, little yappy dogs would go away when sprayed.
Every "dog" whistle I tried sounded just like regular one.

I've never heard of other animals responding to a dog whistle, plus who knows if it would deter a violent or aggressive dog--which is the kind you'd hope to be putting off. Mace, a baton, or a gun is a better defense. And you'd be better off using snares or .22 rounds for animals for food.

wouldn't a dog whistle attract a dog rather than make them run away? I know they are used to train dogs to come. Just wondering
