canine noise phobia treatment for thunderstorm sensitivityIt’s thunderstorm season. While I’ve read that 20% of dogs are thunder-phobic, the number may actually be higher, as it doesn’t include people who have never sought treatment for their thunder-phobic dogs. After all, who would have ever known that treatment could be as simple as sound therapy? Honestly, even I wouldn’t have believed it a few years back.

When the music of Through a Dog’s Ear went into clinical testing in 2004, we didn’t even test it on dogs with thunder-phobia. However, calming results were experienced by dogs with other sound-phobic issues. I have since learned from behavioral experts that when a dog is sound phobic in one area, it usually crosses over into many areas. So, it shouldn’t be so surprising that dogs who slept through fireworks while Through a Dog’s Ear music played also slept through thunderstorms.

Here’s what Pamela G. in Wales had to say about using sound therapy to treat thunder-phobia with her fearful dog….

“I found Calm your Canine Companion Vol. 1 last January as I was looking for something to soothe my new rescue foxhound who was very timid. I usually played it for her and my other pooch when I had to go but one day I decided to play it for her when there was a nasty (and loud) storm. I’m not really sure what happened, but the next thing I knew, I woke up to the stereophonic snoring of the dogs curled up on either side of me. Needless to say, it ended up being a very relaxing day for the 3 of us.”

 

Whippet Dogs Sleeping on Dog Beds Calming music for pets“No lie: Bean is sleeping ON THE FLOOR. DURING A THUNDERSTORM. I still can’t believe it. She is currently listening to Reverie on the “Calm Your Companion: Vol 2″ CD. In the year and a half I’ve had her, we’ve spent every thunderstorm either holding her or sitting next to her and petting her or having her pace around the room with her ears flattened to her head.” Read her full blog….

Our dream at Through a Dog’s Ear is to improve the lives of millions of dogs with sound therapy. We hate to see dogs suffer needlessly during thunderstorms.

How are your dogs during thunderstorms? If they are thunder-phobic, what remedies have you tried? Thanks for sharing your comments.
