So we had a little bit of a good response this weekend. Yesterday we were all laying on the couch (Sundays=lazy days) and the dryer was going. We happened to have the TV a little louder and he must not have heard it. He lifted his head and looked but when he didn't react I told him he was a good boy and gave him some good scratches. He made it all the way through the last minute and the tune.
The time before it wasn't as pleasant. Although he did panic a bit (I don't think it's the tune. He starts before the tune starts) I immediately got up, opened and took him to the hallway outside the laundry room and started asking for him to do things (Sits, downs, etc.). While he did still have a reaction, he got over it far quicker.
SO it appears it's just going to take me not being lazy, maybe leaving treats in the laundry room, and making him use his brain as well as acknowledge and ignore.
As if I could hate doing the laundry more...
