DD/CC human and dog sounds of the city
City noises including adult and child voices, dogs barking, and vehicles, overlaid with constant rain (no thunder).
Gradually desensitise and countercondition your dog so that they feel comfortable living with city noises.
-Start with the overlay (rain) track loud and all other tracks silent.
-Increase the volume of the track you want to work on most (e.g. if your dog barks when a car drives past, increase the volume of cars driving past). Start at a volume which incites attention from your dog, but does not make them so excited or scared that you can't work with them.
-Start with a high frequency of the reaction track; once a minute, for example. Keep it quiet and give your dog a reward every time the sound happens, before the dog reacts in any way you don't want.
-When your dog is happy with the sound at that volume, increase the volume of the reaction track and decrease the volume of the overlay. Decrease the frequency of the reaction track so that it becomes more surprising and less predictable. Never push your dog over their threshold of what they can cope with.
-Introduce more reaction tracks only if your dog is comfortable with the first.
