I did this also. In the early days of hand signals and whistle sit. ACE wouldn't look at me. I would whistle in a couple of feet and that would usually get him squared up to me and his attention.
Another thing that worked well, in the training field, when first training handsignals. After sending him on a line, I would throw a bumper in between him and me and blow the wistle. When he turned around, the bumper would just be landing. This would get his attention back in my direction and square him up to me. This is something I did very briefly, to make him stop quickly on the whisle and quickly get his attention back to me.
