You're going to have to do a little better with your question then that.

All I see is a dog that appears to be squeezing under a piece of shredded green plywood.

Ah.... I feel for her.

We had a pup who was desperately scared of fireworks.... and hate to tell you... but we tried everything to comfort her.... towels around her ears... down to the basement.... just petting and talking nicely.... vet gave us some light dog dope during big thunderstorms and July4 that seemed to do the best.

Good side of the story was when Maggie would wander, we'd just set off a bottle rocket, and she'd be home lickety-split.

Good luck... she's a good looking Goldy

I hate to tell you because I know that you had the best of intentions but when you comforted the dog because she was terrified, ( talking nicely as you would a small child) that is known to reinforce the irrational terror of a dog.
To them they are being praised for being petrified, and so therefore there must really be something bad going on.

The 12-14 th week of a pups life are the most vunerable and experiences seem to be indelibly etched into their brains from that period. Good and bad.
I think you are supposed to just ignore a scared dog. Maybe turn up the music or get it to play fetch as a distraction.

You are lucky Maggie ran home. Some dogs just run.

Creeper... Good to know.... we had a good vet too... but I guess she did not know...

One time I was up on a 10' step ladder cutting in something, storm broke out with thunder, and next thing I know she had climbed the ladder next to me.

She lived to a lttle over 15.... Wish I'd known how to quell her fear of thunder.

Thanks

I heard it from Ceasar:laughing:

But Ive had two Shepherds, one was terrified and would quiver under a table.

Years later when I got my king I was too busy chasing small kids around half the time and did not give him attention during a storm. He was absolutely fearless..of anything..except our cat..

So I'm not sure if it was his sound temperament or just his life experience.

But he was the world's greatest dog . RIP Kodiak May 2013

Yes, our sweet little Sydney was terrified of fireworks last year (and this year it sounded like a war zone around here)...but this year she sat out on the porch with us and watched them all with interest. I don't know what changed, but it's a change for the better...she's 4 now. A lot braver than she used to be. I know her previous owner's boyfriend put a shock collar on her as a puppy and zapped her every time she made noise or looked at him funny...what a ****. We've had her for 2.5 years now and she is the sweetest thing ever. My wife treats her better than she treats me!

Well I wasn't really looking to fix the storm door just thought I would see if any one had an idea. But I do need to replace it and the trim around the door.

Here's my two cents from helping gun dogs get over being gunshy.
I start with feeding time. Beginning with stamping hard. Then working up to slamming cabinets and even up to banging pans with metal spoons. They start to relate loud noises to feeding time. It's worked for me in the past. Might give it a shot. :thumbup:

In the meantime, a Thundershirt works great on my Hound Dog.
