Locke carved a dog whistle out of wood and used it to attract Vincent from the jungle. Michael had been trying to find Vincent for Walt, but Locke took it upon himself to find the dog after Jack said he had seen him after first waking up after the crash. ("Tabula Rasa")

Later, Locke and Boone used the whistle to attempt to find Vincent after he ran away. Although they did not find Vincent, they did find Claire for the first time since she was kidnapped. ("Special")

Analysis

Locke's creation and use of the whistle sets him as the hunter and survivalist. He knows what he is doing and does it without asking or telling anyone.

It also foils Michael (especially early on) and emphasizes his weak relationship with his son. It is Locke's good nature to attempt to improve Michael and Walt's relationship that motivates him to not tell Walt that it was he who found Vincent, and not Michael. This is one of the earliest steps toward Michael and Walt developing a loving relationship.
