Fact, not fiction. Dog's reations to sound fears are serious

We have approximately 89.7 million dogs living in homes in the United States as family pets.  Fact is, sound phobia is a common behavioral condition in dogs. Recent studies show dog parents report over 66% sound fears in their dogs.  Millions and millions of dogs suffer from noise anxiety. There is a good possibility dogs in your neighborhood have noise concerns. Is your dog one of them? Ask any vet and they can share stories of dogs jumping out windows, running into traffic and getting hit, chewing through crates or doors and ripping their teeth out while damaging other areas of their body, attacking others in fear. July 5th is the date the greatest number of dogs is dropped off at shelters due to behavior problems.


Angel Dog Sound Socialization™ is a training program that addresses the source of the problem.  Angel Dog Sound Socialization™ was developed and produced by master dog trainerO’Neal Scott to provide a solution to the very real problem of sound distress in dog homes.  There was no solution to the real problem – dogs afraid of loud, sudden sounds. And as those who have a dog with this problem, you know it affects everyone else in the household and often the circle of impact is even greater.

Steps were taken to thoroughly research of the problem, case studies, and time spent searching out the highest quality sounds to record with the best equipment and then taken to a studio.  The sounds were then set into tracks by topic and digitally mastered to provide the most ideal exposure to real life sounds known to scare dogs.  Then specific training steps for breeders and new puppy families were added at the beginning of the training to ensure the exposure is POSITIVE. (Simply exposing dogs to loud sounds does NOT prevent sound fears or correct existing sound fears.)  We also created specific counter-conditioning training for dogs who have sound phobias.

The training is gentle and will not damage your loving relationship.  In fact, this training aids in deepening your close connection of trust.

Our world is getting more and more stimulating and dogs need to be trained to understand the sounds don’t hurt them.  Just as dogs don’t know to wait at the door, sit as a sign of please, or come when called unless they are given training, it is the same with sound socializing.

The greatest benefit of this training is to teach your dog to learn to respond to the loud sounds versus reacting in fear.

The step-by-step training is the key to training or retraining your dog to overcome the source of the problem.  This, in turn, opens up your dogs’ life, and yours.  No more passing on events so you can stay home with the dog and hide in a quiet room.

Open up your dogs’ world with critically needed socialization. Over 124 unique individual sounds are set in organized tracks to make training smooth and helpful so you can easily target what is needed for your pet. Studio mastered because it makes a huge difference when you listen to a “homemade” audio training versus professional studio mastered. Great care has been put into each aspect of this professional grade training.

Begin training today as it takes time to achieve “real life volume”.  Some pets train fast and others need more time. Effective socializing is done step-by-step with specific training to ensure your pet has a healthy reaction/response before moving to the next step. This is a reason why the training provided is critical to your pet’s success.
