Description: There are many products on the market today that purport to help protect our dogs from unpleasant sounds. There are even some that claim to “cure” sound phobias. How can we assess these claims? Eileen Anderson, who has graduate degrees in music and engineering science (acoustics), brings her unique expertise to this webinar. She will cover basics about the physics of sound that are not well-known in the dog training community and that can inform us how best to help our dogs. She will include what the science tells us about how best to protect our dogs from sound, be it with barriers, masking, or music. She’ll also explain the special challenges with performing desensitization and counter conditioning (DS/CC) with sound. Even stable dogs can be bothered by sudden or annoying noises. This webinar will give you information you must know if you are going to help any dog deal with scary or unpleasant sounds. Join us to learn what the evidence says about dogs and coping in a noisy human world.
