Hello! My little guy just turned two this year and ever since the 4th of July he's been terrified of any loud noise. The blender, pots clanging, a door slamming shut, even papers rustling. The vet told us it could be because he's turned two and sometimes that happens to dogs, we just find it soo weird. He was really never scared of anything before 4th of July. Last year we brought him with us to see the fireworks, it didn't bother him one bit, he actually slept through them. This year we left him at home and when we came back he was panting, had peed in the laundry room and had thrown up in several places. Now whenever he hears anything slightly loud his tail goes in between his legs and he comes running straight towards me and hides behind my legs. He shakes and pants and acts like its the end of the world. He's become so stressed out its affecting his health and I have no idea how to fix it. I don't give him any attention when he's like this because I know it will just reinforce the behavior and make him think if he's scared it's ok because I'll just give him attention. I do let him hide behind my legs though, I don't want him to feel like he's alone when he's so scared. It's just so confusing. We've gotten him a thunder shirt, calming spray, a white noise maker for storms and a calming liquid that works ok. We've also gotten a sedative from the vet for when we know something is gonna bother him, like severe thunderstorms or a day filled with cooking. I don't want him to be frightened of everything for the rest of his life, any advice, please!!??
