HearItPuppy is designed to help you desensitise your puppy or adult dog to the top 16 sounds that bother most pet dogs, without spending any more time than you already do on training.
You can test, manage and track your dog’s progress through the app which is designed to be used while you play with him or do other training.
As well as allowing easy, one-touch access to key noises and sounds, this app tracks your dog’s tolerance enabling you to focus on the noises which are most challenging for him, and get him gradually used to them using positive methods.
Each sound can be played at graded volume levels and the app will remember the volume level you reached last time, so that you can pick up each session where you left off previously without causing any unnecessary distress for your pooch.
Select the sound you want to work on and leave it playing the the background while you have fun with your dog.
You can also connect to an external speaker to make the noises louder.
Fixed an issue with sound playing over Bluetooth devices, sound will now always play from your Apple device's speakers.
Ratings and Reviews
Really useful training tool
As someone with rescue dogs and who has fostered many others they often come nervous of household sounds. This is a really useful app as I can help desensitise them to the worst noises, with greyhounds that's usually fireworks and thunder.
Brilliant training tool
This app has everything you need to train both a puppy and, as in our case, a rescue dog to be calm around noise. Thunder, fireworks and the doorbell have been especially useful so far.
Such a good idea. Turning the volume up, little by little, to desensitise anxious dogs from scary sounds.
Our puppy is nervous of fireworks so really pleased to find this app.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
