Streaming audio through an Internet connection

If you have an Internet connected audio device, then you can stream the audio.

Click the top player button for the Volume Anchor piano tune, to set the volume level on your audio device.

Click the middle player button to play the therapy sounds and Natural Intervals in random order.

Click the bottom player and choose the therapy sound you want to play.

Volume Anchor Piano Tune

If you haven’t written down the volume setting on your audio device, use the Volume Anchor to find the setting. Play the piano tune so that it is at a comfortable listening level. That is the correct volume setting on the audio device, in today’s location, wherever that is.

Click the play button to play the piano tune and set the volume level:

Step 4  – Play Full Set On Random

This player plays the sounds and silent Natural Intervals in random order (shuffle). Suggested length of session is 90 minutes. Then the player should have played most of the sounds. If not, then it will even out in subsequent sessions. Just hit the play button, and then go and do whatever you like, while noticing your dog’s reactions. Apart from that, WeStopFear does not require any work from you. If the playing is completely silent in the beginning, that is simply because the random player has chosen a silent Natural Interval as the first track.

The sounds are at an almost full volume in Step 4. This means that the therapy sounds are like they are happening quite close to you, but not right beside you.

Click the play button to play the therapy sounds set on random:

How to: If you feel that you need to lower the sound volume at the start of Step #4

In Step #4, lower the sound volume by one eighth (1/8) to go half ways down towards the volume as it was in Step #3.

(The parameters for other steps are different).

Explanation: When you go from one stage to the next stage above, sometimes the step may be too wide for an extra sensitive dog. There are five CD discs/five sound file folders, meaning the playing from very low sound volume to full volume is taken in five increments. However, if you lower the sound when you have entered a new stage, so that it is lowered half ways down towards the previous stage, then you have increased the potential number of sound volume settings from five to ten steps. Most of the time that should be enough, since the sounds are heard at very different loudness levels in real life, depending on the variable distance to the phenomena in question.
