I rarely pay for an app, but when I found this one, my curiosity was piqued. As a professional dog trainer, I was looking for a way to help my clients predict and use sounds that cause anxiety in their dogs. This app does just that, and allows the user to play sounds softly in the background as the dog becomes accustomed to it, and eventually counter-conditioned. I am thrilled and will recommend to other clients and trainers.
Was recommended this by a trainer so paid out for it only to find I am unable to record my own sound as the app keeps closing. Have submitted feedback & never received a response. As someone has said earlier use your device recording function.
Genius! A brilliant app that will make desensitization work so much easier for my clients puppies! Capturing calmness around these sounds can be difficult in the moment - being able to set up training sessions including everyday (and some not-so everyday) sounds (starting at a low volume) makes training go so much smoother. Thank you!
Could be better I was surprised there is no traffic sounds. When you walk a dog for the first time it is the sound of cars that go past which is the most common and startle the dog. At the end of the day these sound bites can be downloaded elsewhere.
Pretty disappointed that an app that costs money still crashed when trying to record your own sounds after it's been brought up for at least 5 months... Can't train my own doorbell and dog barking noise... It's a shame.
Just fabulous! So easy to use, there's really no good reason why any puppy owner or breeder isn't using this app!
3 New Sounds: Sirens, Smoke Alarms and internal plane travel. The Grooming sounds have also been split to clipper sounds and dryer sounds. The vibration function is only on the clipper sounds so users can still simulate clippers on their puppies and dogs.
There is also a link to my training blogs. Articles will be available on Preparing the family dog for the arrival of a new baby (human). Preparing your puppy or dog for grooming and many more.
Go for a run with your puppy dog and train him to become your exercise partner!
