Summer Noise Phobias
Dr. Suzanne Hetts
Summer can be a difficult time for noise phobic dogs as fireworks and thunderstorms occur throughout the summer. In severe cases, a dog’s fearful reactions can literally be life threatening as some dogs will engage in extreme measures attempting to get away from what to them are terrifying sounds.
We'll discuss the challenges in working with noise phobias, what’s helpful and what’s not, myths about “rewarding fear”, management options, and why winter is the best time to work with these problems.
