A&W Brings Back The Whistle Dog for a Limited Time

If you were ever an avid fan of the legacy A&W menu item, The Whistle Dog, you’ll be excited to hear that it’s back on the menu in restaurants across Canada as of July 25th.

For those unfamiliar, The Whistle Dog is a hot dog in a toasted bun topped with relish, cheddar cheese, and bacon.


Since it disappeared from the menu in 2017, The Whistle Dog developed somewhat of a cult following of fans adamant on bringing the iconic hot dog back – so much so that A&W is releasing a “Bring Back the Whistle Dog” documentary. The “hot dog-umentary” about The Whistle Dog’s avid fan base and the lengths they’ve gone to ensure its return will be available for Canadians to watch on August 12th on A&Ws social channels and Youtube.

Hurry into an A&W near you to try The Whistle Dog before it’s gone!
