"Fear of sudden or loud noises is a common problem facing dogs, and working with it takes a specific approach. What may start out as a little startle response when an unusual noise happens can turn into a phobia very quickly in certain dogs, and fear of one sound can generalize to fears of related sounds before you know it! The key to preventing an issue from forming is to teach dogs that sudden sounds are actually predictors of fun! Teach your dogs that sounds have a happy meaning so that they don't attach their own, negative meaning! You will learn: - Factors involved in noise sensitivity - Common noises dogs are sensitive to and may fear more than others - Why working with noise is different from training behaviors - The framework of applied classical conditioning, without jargon!"
