Noise Phobias In Dogs



Noise sensitivities and phobias are fear responses that occur in dogs when they are exposed to certain noises such as sirens, smoke alarms, fireworks, kettle whistles,vacuum cleaners and thunder.
Noise sensitivities and phobias are medical conditions that can be managed by modifying the dog’s environment and behavioural response, however, in severe cases noise phobias can become extremely debilitating and may require support through medication. This is similar to how diabetes can be treated with dietary changes and exercise but often requires medication to prevent the disease from being life threatening.
