“You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins.

- Jim Stovall

Hello and welcome!

Rinse and repeat. Simple and convenient. Your dog will be, if all goes well, better able to deal with all the strange and unknown sounds that our industralized world may throw at it, suddenly and without warning. It really couldn‘t be better, the fact that this important process of working with, rather than against, this basic instinct of being on alert towards unknown stimuli is now probably easier and safer than before, thanks to the Simple Secure Steps process design.
