Teach your dog storms are nothing to fear. 

Thunderstorms are one most of the common phobias that canines face. These storms leave them quivering, panting, drooling, or at worst, destroying your home. With an ability to hear twice as many frequencies as people, at a capability over four times our own, it’s no wonder that so many pups struggle to be calm during a booming storm. Sound is an incredibly powerful sensory pathway for dogs, and when channeled properly, it can be used to effectively communicate calm, instead of fear. 

Since we can’t quiet the storm, the answer is to re-train the fear response. Thunderstorms uses soothing, specially re-arranged classical music synced to the natural rhythm of a relaxed mammalian nervous system–in combination with background thunderstorm sound effects–to effectively communicate that storms are nothing to fear.

Sit through the storms with zen.

Since 2008, thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers worldwide have recommended the slow and simplified classical compositions of Through a Dog’s Ear. The breakthrough research behind Through a Dog’s Ear shows that the canine nervous system is extremely sensitive to sound — and that special arrangements of classical music have a profound soothing impact on anxious dogs. This clinically tested canine music is formulated for your dog’s calm behavior, as well as your discerning ear.

Thunderstorm phobia is a very common condition among dogs all over the world. The terror that results can be an incredibly distressing, debilitating problem not only for dogs, but also for their owners who feel powerless to help. This groundbreaking desensitization tool will teach your dog to associate positive feelings with thunderstorms rather than feeling fearful, and will help to gradually reduce your dog’s fear when exposed to these sounds.

The Thunderstorms album includes a verbal introduction by Victoria and sounds of thunderstorms (mild, moderate, and heavy) set against the backdrop of the Through a Dog’s Ear clinically-tested calming music. An adjoining booklet contains Victoria’s positive reinforcement training protocol. The goal is to re-frame your dog’s perception of the sounds of thunder and associate these sounds with a calm feeling.

When used properly and implemented in conjunction with the included behavioral modification protocols included, you can rehabilitate your thunder-phobic dog, or prevent thunder-phobia from ever developing in younger dogs.

About Canine Noise Phobia Series

The Canine Noise Phobia series (CNP) is an innovative desensitization training tool that combines three distinctive elements for the treatment and prevention of sound-sensitivities and noise-phobias:

  • Progressive sound effects (distant/close)
  • Specially-designed psychoacoustic music (Through a Dog’s Ear)
  • Reward-based reinforcement protocols (Victoria Stilwell, Positively.com)

CNP can be used in two distinctive ways:

  1. Habituation: To help prevent your puppy or dog from
    developing fears or phobias to fireworks, thunderstorms,
    and city sounds.
  2. Desensitization: To help your dog overcome an already-
    established fear or phobia of fireworks, thunderstorms,
    and city sounds.

Training protocols for Thunderstorms have been created by Victoria Stilwell, star of Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog, and author of Train Your Dog Positively.

“Our female Great Pyrenees has recently developed fear of thunderstorms & fireworks. Never had this fear before, but apparently this can happen as dogs age. I used the thunderstorm CD and she had no episodes of trying to hide. I also used the other CD purchased for our male Great Pyrenees for fireworks and it worked much better on her than it did our male.

“My dog is from the shelter, 10 years old….I have him 3 years, he came to me with many traumas, the worst being separation anxiety and fear of storms…..I played this during a storm and really cranked it up-he hung close, in his thunder shirt, but was much more accepting of the noise. It’s suggested 3x at least per day, which I plan on doing every day until he can accept that he is “safe” and relaxes. I feel confident that following Victoria’s tips he can overcome his fear.

“I bought this for my dog two years ago. I can say [loud sounds] do not bother him anymore. It is a positive conditioning CD. We all have mixed opinions of Victoria Stillwell’s training methods and I do not agree with some things, but this product is amazing. We stayed at level 1 or 2 for a few weeks. CD player on repeat. Then we graduated to higher levels. He is a new dog. I can’t speak for all dogs, but this was a game changer for us. He can go outside and potty with fireworks going off in the area. He can sleep during the night; not whine, pant, or stir constantly.”

—Desiree Monsanto, Santa Fe, NM

“My dog has an extreme fear of fireworks. I purchased the Fireworks CD as we approached the 4th of July and our neighbors started to set off fireworks in early celebration. For the last two weeks I have been playing the CD increasing the volume slightly as she tolerates it. She now sleeps through it. We haven’t experienced the 4th yet, but I can only think that this will help. I highly recommend.”
