BUSINESS REQUIREMENT

Business Need:

  • Develop an Android based training app that allows dog owners and breeders to train dogs to cope with loud noises and become desensitized to them through positive reinforcement.
  • The app will help prevent dogs getting anxious around particular noises, which lead to a range of issues like problem behaviour, running away, barking, among others.
  • The app will play common noises feared by dogs, such as fireworks, thunder, traffic, power tools, trucks, sneezing, kids playing, etc.
  • Dogs may develop a fear around other sounds that are not available in the app. Dog breeders and owners can record such sounds, and play it to their dogs so they can get appropriately desensitized to these sounds as well.

Key Challenges:

  • The layout design, images, font sizes and other graphical elements had to be displayed in proportion to multiple resolutions and screen sizes.
  • Android OS has several versions. The app has been developed to support OS version from Gingerbread 2.3 (API Level 9) to Kitkat (API Level 19).
  • We had to test the app on several Android devices with varied dimensions for phones, phablets and tablets.

SOLUTION OVERVIEW:

App Development:

  • We developed a hybrid app making the core features available natively in an offline mode.
  • Prominent features included:
    • Training instructions for puppy conditioning, breeders and for dogs with fears.
    • Training videos for showing the desensitization techniques performed by the breeder.
  • Playing 27 different sound files. Dog owners play these sounds when the dog is relaxed. By gradually increasing the volume with the use of a speaker, dogs eventually become desensitized to that sound.
  • Recording a new sound file with an option to play the same whenever needed.
  • Developed proportionate graphical assets to help align the programme with multiple screen resolutions and device dimensions.

Tools and Technologies Used:

  • Android SDK
  • Eclipse IDE, Android Plug-in for Eclipse, Android Dalvik Debug Monitor service
  • Java, MySQL, PHP, XML

Other Credentials:

  • This app has been rated as one of the top 5 apps for dog owners by a Lifestyle magazine.
  • This app got reviewed on a national channel featuring dog training. The program showed how this app helped dog owners and breeders to condition their dogs to sounds they disliked earlier. This in turn helped the dogs lead happier lives.
