Quick Focus Text Instructions

Before: Only Needed Once.

Determine and write down the following, for easy reference later:

Choose the locations where your dog spends time, where you will do the therapy.

Westopfear locations options

(This could for instance be inside a room, in the garden, in the car.)

Determine the audio playback device you have, that fits for each place.

Westopfear audio playback device options

(For instance the stereo system in the room, a portable stereo, a smart phone, tablet or computer with capable wireless loudspeakers, the audio system in the car.)

Choose the audio solution you will use for the chosen device(s) (E.x. the button for streaming audio, or download the MP3 files, or use the MP3 files to burn an audio CD).

Westopfear audio media options

Find the right volume setting for each location/playback device:

You need to start by playing track 1 in each location, the piano tune, the Volume Anchor™.

(The piano tune is Prelude in C Major, BWV 846, by Johan Sebastian Bach.)

Adjust the volume setting to a good listening level (not very loud, not very low).

Write down these information for easy reference later on.

The Simple Process Each Time

1.

Choose today’s location.

Get ready the audio playback device for that location.

Get ready the therapy audio, according to the step you are at.

Therapy audio: The streaming random play button, MP3 files, CD disc you have burned…

If you use the audio streaming button, you go to the current Step page.

2.

Set the volume setting on the audio playback device, correctly for the location.

Either by:

Set the volume according to what you wrote down before, for this location.

Or

If you could not write it down, play track 1, the piano tune Volume Anchor™ each time.

Westopfear piano tune playbutton

Set the volume so the piano music is at a good listening level. (Not rock-concert loud, not dinner music low, simply a normal quality music listening level.)

Then wait a bit…

3.

Push the play button to play the therapy sounds randomly.

Let the sounds and silent Natural Intervals™ in between play for an hour, even more…

If you set the volume correctly with the Volume Anchor™, the therapy sounds are at the right volume level for the step you are at (very low at Step 1, up to full volume at Step 5).

You don’t have to do anything else.

Don’t let your dog sense that you are managing the sounds.

Don’t show any response to the sounds. Don’t feel sorry if your dog is worried.

(You know this is just harmless, normal sounds that mean nothing). 

If you feel sorry and console and soothe your dog, the dog will think the sounds are really something to worry about and will even become even more scared!

So stay indifferent. Do whatever you like or need to do.

Note: See the infographic further down on the page.

4.

While the sounds are on, secretly observe your dog.

(A list of signs of fear and phobia in dogs is here)

– Is your dog slightly uneasy? >>> Good, continue.
– Is it very distressed? >>> Lower the volume.
Rare: Is it in extreme agony and will not relax? >>> Stop, and consult your veterinarian.
– Is your dog completely relaxed in this place? >>> Your dog has reached the goal in this place, at the step you are at. Focus on the other places you chose.
– Is your dog completely relaxed and doesn’t care about the noises, in all places?  >>> This step is finished.

Move on up to the next step (from Step 1 to 2, or from Step 3 to 4, etc.)

(Note, do not stop playback in the middle of a sound track, rather, wait for the silence in between sounds and stop at that point).

5.

Are you in Step 5, where the therapy sounds are at full volume, and your dog is completely indifferent and relaxed in all the locations?

Congratulations

You have graduated!

The goal of the noise phobia therapy has been reached.

Your dog has reached sound tolerance, and is less likely to suffer from unnecessary fear of unknown noises, as your dog has gotten used to the sounds and has experienced that nothing terrible happens when these sounds are heard.

The Future:

Maintenance

Just like you cannot stop playing and rehearsing a musical instrument and still stay fully able for the rest of your life, and you cannot stop going to the gym when you have reached a goal, and do no physical exercise for the rest of you life and still stay completely fit and in top physical form, then your dog cannot completely stop practicing the noise therapy.

If you stop and never do this again, the sound tolerance will wane.

Thus you need to maintain the good success, by doing a session 1-2 x times month.

That of course will be easy.

You just choose the place, get the playback device ready, set the volume correctly, push the play button, and then do whatever you like for an hour at least.

Can you learn the method from this page?

Unless you already know a lot about desensitisation or habituation, this information is not enough to learn the method from the start. However, you can get a feel for it through the infograph and video.

To learn the method properly so you will do this correctly for your dog, which is the easiest way because then you don’t have to repeat things, or face potentially harmful mistakes, please refer to the Main Instructions, the Important Details, the Fear Signs page, and the pages for each Step when that step opens.
