Noise Phobia in Dogs - How To Help Your Dog

Another method to use is for your dog to be reminded of positive experiences whenever he feels strong: when there is a storm, fireworks, etc., give your dog a favorite or favorite chew toy when he is calm or indifferent to loud noises. Be sure to refrain from giving positive rewards if your dog fears during strong events. Otherwise, your dog may associate his / her frightening behavior with positive attention and may think that his / her fearful behavior has been rewarded and encouraged.

Finally, give your dog its own space. It can be a chosen area or a crate that can become their "den". Your dog can retire to his safe comfort zone when he is afraid and this will help calm and lessen his fears.
