“You must remain focused on your journey to greatness.

– Les Brown

Hello and welcome!

Are you handing out awards to yourself and your family, even neighbors? Don‘t be shy doing that. I am not talking about lavish and expensive rewards. It can simply be a pat on the shoulder and words of cheerful praise. Award yourself for doing this important noise phobia therapy (for prevention or cure) for your dog. Cherish the positive Steps you manage to take onwards in this process. Try to do this as enjoyable as you possibly can. But remember, when the sounds are playing, cool down, and behave as if nothing special is going on. By that, your dog learns that the sounds don‘t matter.

  • What has French celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli got cookin‘? He has no less than 21 Doberman dogs, so he has a lot of mouths to feed. What exactly gets into their food bowl we don‘t know, but it helps to run a large kitchen with all these hungry mouths to feed.
