Sound Buttons are used to teach a dog how hard to "touch" a human in order to impinge and make the human aware of the alert. And for the Hearing Assistance Dog, to teach different household sounds to alert to.
Marker Spots are used in training a dog where to alert to, whether it's the target human or another human such as an adult if the target human is a child.
These portable door bells are not wired into your house, they are plugged into an outlet. And the button can be carried around during the day to sound the door bell and train the dog to alert to it.
Kitchen Timers are handy for teaching the first sound alert. And of course if you are a baker, they work for telling the dog to tell you when baking is done!
A target stick is used to teach a dog "where" to alert and to familiarize a dog with all parts of a human that can be alerted on.
This book takes you from evaluating a dog for it's potential for service, create the sounds you need to be alerted to, how to get your dog to commit to your target sounds, how to alert you when that target soundis detected in real life, and how to teach your dog to be industrious, persistant, creative and resilient about alerting you. 339 pages
