Thanks for sharing this! Fortunately, while we have some wary dogs, we don’t have any MAJOR issues. They are not fans of the thunder or fireworks, but have their ways to cope.
Thanks, Nichole. I’m so happy to hear. I prefer happy pups. I would however, suggest a little training so they don’t increase, which happens a lot.
Interesting advice on how to calm down nervous dogs and help them through the trials and tribulations of life.
Just finished listening – wow, I learned more than I thought I could!
<3 I love hearing that!
I have been fortunate that my dogs have not had a fear of thunder and storms. When they were pups, I would never react to loud noises or storms, I would just continue on like everything was normal. I attribute this to their calmness. However, I did have a dog growing up that would try to hide in a closet during thunder storms and as much as we tried to comfort her she could never relax.
So happy you have confident dogs. Love that. Sorry about your other pup. Breaks my heart every time.
Both of my male dogs are scared of thunder and fireworks. Henry hides under my bed and Jack paces and pants. We use rescue remedy and have thundershirts. Both seem to make a big difference.
So happy they are helping! Thunderstorm phobia is a difficult behavior to treat and live with.
My Eve has thunderstorm phobia issues. We usually put her in her crate and cover it. She then tends to go to sleep and be OK.
Oh, that’s so good she found a safe spot!
Thunderstorms, fireworks – neither are a good combination with dogs. My kids wear thundershirts. I’m not sure who feels better about it, me or them! Is real and pet parents need to acknowledge it.
Glad it’s helping! 🙂
My niece’s dog is so afraid of thunder and it’s so sad. I’ve recommended a thunder shirt to her, but she hasn’t tried it yet. I’m going to send her this post.
Thanks for sending her here. I usually go with the Thundershirt second to the cape.
Not so much thunder but he really doesn’t like fireworks. I’ll have to come back and listen to the full interview later.
Glad we’re good with thunder! Fireworks are tough, but luckily for most, only a few key days a year.
The best way, of course, is appropriate training to change the emotions in the first place. This may or may not need chemical help. I do like natural options. We do have Adaptil and Bach Rescue Remedy on hand.
Of, course training is always a big part. But, with phobias with things that are out of our control for timing and intensity, sometimes these animals need relief in order for any training to occur.
My dogs don’t seem to have any phobias, but two of my sisters each had a dog who was afraid of thunder and fireworks. It was tough on all of them.
It’s very hard having a pet with a phobia that we cannot control the intensity for training. Hugs.
I’m saving this video so my mom can watch it. Her dog is getting worse and worse about thunderstorms and we have them all the time in the south in the summer.
Thanks for sharing. Yes, when I had my golden, we lived in Raleigh. I moved!
Ugh, perfect timing with the upcoming holiday! I just had clients ask in class today about fireworks and what we can do to help and educate for future reference.
Feel free to share. Yes, I’m teaching the prevention all year round with my students.
I never had a dog so I don’t know what it’s like however I have a friend who expresses the same issue. Her dog is scared of thunderstorms and firecrackers. My cat had the same issue with VERY severe storms. It would put her on edge and she’d scurry away and find a hiding spot until the storm passed.
It’s so heartbreaking when our pets are stressed. <3
My dog Lucy is deaf, so thunder and loud noises don’t bother her a bit! One of my cats is scared of thunder though. She always hides under the bed.
Oh, poor girl. Maybe some of these tips will help. We actually talked about cats and thunder.
Phoebe is pretty fearless, but my Husky Icy is terrified of fireworks and thunder. She hears the first signs and runs into the back of the walk-in closet! I dread the 4th of July. Thanks for all these resources.
Love & Biscuits,
Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them
Poor Icy. I hope the links and the webinar help. <3
