Jasmine has a BIG fear of "outa the norm" vehicles,{Snowplows,Garbage trucks...Ect} she barks, growls & lunges whenever 1 passes us, when we're out, I've tried everything {including, trying to get her to focus on ME & NOT the vehicle"} So far...Nothing has worked

Any Suggestions ?

Ace is still really scared of the hair dryer. but these are great tips to tell people how not to do the wrong thing when their dog is frightened.

I have a severely scared dog at thunderstorms. We have kept her secure on a leash, kept calm near her and ignored her behavior. Slowly she has gotten better. Previous dogs were helped with medication. Her fear is nonexistent now that she is 15 and has lost a lot of her hearing.

I have tried these things, but still have problems. I also invested in a "security wrap for dogs"..which seems to help. I am still looking for an answer.

These are exellent techniques to remember.Our school didn't do the response for fireworks. It just wasn't covered in the lessons. I think this should be covered in all curriculums. Agnes ans Buster both were afraid of these noises and now I know how to properly comfort them. Thank you sooooo much.

Wow, this is all common sense. If someone doesn't know all of this yet... wow. Don't own a dog- get a fish instead. Just remember to feed it and clean his bowl.

I like this because my puppy is very scared of things right now. It definitely gave me some good information by encouraging me not to reinforce her fear by giving her affection. It will be hard, but I'll do what is best for her!
