Is your dog afraid of vacuum cleaners and other common kitchen and appliance noises?

Dogs can develop fears of the strangest things. We’ve worked with pets that have been afraid of dishwashers, microwave ovens, telephones ringing, and clothes dryers, in addition to the common Monster Vacuum Phobia. Doesn’t matter why your dog is afraid of these items that make scary noises, what matters is that you help him overcome his fears so he can live a better quality of life.

While your dog’s fear may be a combination of the sight of the object plus the noise it makes, the best way to help your dog is to expose him to what he’s afraid of in small doses. Start with just a touch of the sound that frightens him, using this digitally mastered audio CD of common noises associated with vacuum cleaners and kitchens. When the sound is paired with something your dog enjoys immensely, this creates a powerful behavior modification experience that is even used with people. Progress from sound alone to pairing the controlled sound with the sight of the feared appliance.

To help you get started, with your order, we’ll even include a two page downloadable handout on “Using Counter Conditioning and Desensitization Techniques Effectively” effectively. For a more thorough explanation of these techniques, we recommend our “Using Counter Conditioning and Desensitization Techniques Effectively” 2 CD set.
