Sounds for Hounds is designed in collaboration with dog owners, handlers and breeders and offers all dogs – pedigree or cross breed – pup or adult – a perfect audio introduction to everyday sounds.
Sounds for Hounds is dual purpose. For pups, it functions as an aid to puppy socialization – helping to prevent the development of sound phobias. For older pups and adult dogs, it can be used – in conjunction with the Sounds for Hounds positive reinforcement training guide(included with the CD or downloadable from www.soundskapes.com) – as a desensitization and sound phobia training tool.
A pup’s exercise routine often needs to build gradually (for healthy ligament, joint and muscle development). During this crucial development phase, pups can sometimes miss out on exposure to the variety of sounds in their wider environment. Sounds for Hounds can help prevent the development of sound phobias by offering early exposure to over 55 everyday sounds.
Played regularly, in the first six months of life and as part of a daily routine, pups become accustomed to and accepting of common daily sounds – helping them to create positive associations with the bangs, crackles, screeches and roars in daily life.
