i would recommend you get a behavior specialist to work on a desensitization program. Y ou can do it yourself somewhat but many people don't go slow enough. Once they direct you it is something you can manage on your own. Especially if thunder is a trigger. Quite often drugs might be req1uired in which case your vet would be required, Here' a article http://veterinarynews.dvm360.com/sto...ID=1&sk=&date=

So sorry your baby suffers from this. Selio is the first drug for dogs approved for sound sensitivities. I have not used it but hear it works well. You might ask you vet about it if all else fails.

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this. So many do to some extent, my Tucker is one of them. I've not found drugs to help a lot, and what other methods I've tried haven't worked.

I just hope he doesn't have a heart attack or stroke on New Year's, or 4th of July, or ball games where they are shooting off cannons, (a mile away!) Or thunderstorms. Or sonic booms....
