Learn about Noise Fears and What You Can Do to Help Your Dog

It's a completely natural reaction to be startled by unexpected loud noises. In fact, a geas response to a loud noise is actually a sensible protective mechanism. But some dogs have a reaction to noise so intense that it seriously impairs their quality of life. These extreme reactions are called "Noise Phobias." Unfortunately, dogs don't outgrow noise phobias and in fact will likely persist and worsen over time if intervention strategies aren't implemented.

Incidence: Phobias associated with noise are not uncommon in dogs and can be seen as early as 9 weeks of age. Research has shown that up to 50% of dogs may have a noise phobia.1 The most common phobias include fireworks, thunderstorms, vacuum cleaners, loud voices, engines, door bangs, party poppers and bird scare devices. Dogs with noise phobias are often fearful of amny loud noises. Dogs of all ages can be afflicted with noise phobias, but in one study 78% of the dogs were between 1-5 yrs of age.

Signs & Symptoms: Dogs react differently to noise phobias. Their reaction can be minor - including whinning or panting - or the reaction can be extreme with the dog fractically trying to escape the home of their enclosure.

    Some Common symptoms are:
  • Trembling
  • Barking
  • Escaping
  • Whimpering
  • Cowering
  • Vomiting
  • Panic
  • Seeking human attention
  • Shaking
  • Hiding
  • Whining
  • Panting
  • Salvatign
  • Diarrhea
  • Destructiveness
  • Inappropriate urination or defecation

Causes of Noise Phobias: No one really knows what causes some individuals to develop noise phobias. Possible causes include: genetic sensitivity to loud noises and sudden traumatic events associated with noise.

Dogs at Risk of Noise Phobias: Any dog can develop a noise phobia, but there are some populations of dogs that appear to be more susceptible:

  • Dogs adopted from an animal shelter
  • Certain breeds such as working group dogs, herding breeds and hounds
  • Dogs that were not exposed to noise at a young age, but exposed to noise later in life.

Helping your dog cope: Reacting to noise is very normal and an instinctual response that helps an animal respond to threats. A healthy response to noise is demonstrated by a quick recovery in the dog when it realizes that there is nothing truly threatening. But a dog that develops an intense, persistent fear of noise has developed a phobia and that is a much more challenging problem to overcome. Dogs experiencing phobias can seriously injure themselves in their attempt to escape from what they perceive an immediate life threatening danger.

It's also important to realize that dogs may be experiencing anxiety in response to noises no matter how well they may respond to commands during a storm or other noisy event. Fear and anxiety are biological responses that have nothing to do with the intelligence of the dog. In fact, these responses are completely out of the dogs control once the emotional response has been associated with the event that scares the animal. Even the most well-trained dog who responds to "down" obedience during thunderstorms may still be suffering from fear even if he or she appears to be "well-behaved."

    Steps you can take to help your dog cope with Noise Phobia
  • Develop a treatment plan in conjunction with your veterinarian. It's important to make sure your veterinarian is part of the process, as she can guide you to the right resources, monitor your dog's progress and offer medical intervention if necessary.
  • Build a "Safe Area" or Den for your dog to escape from noise when needed. Pick an area that is quiet, away from windows and activity. Your dog may already have an area she favors such as a closet or under the bed. You can create an area by putting a blanket over a kennel. Make sure the area is comfortable, with a dog bed or blankents. Give her treats, toys and chews in the den so that she associates the area with good, positive things. Never force her into this area or lock her into it! It must be a place that she chooses to go because she feels safe there! Also supplement the area with Adaptil pheromone products to help provide additional reassurance. Allow her the freedom to access the den whenever she needs to, and ask the family to leave her alone and not approach her when she is in the den - lettung her come to you when she is ready.
  • Use clinically proven pheromones. Adaptil® is te only clinically proven pheromone product to help reduce reactions to loud noises including fireworks and thunderstorms.2,3 Adaptil® is a synthetic copy of a comforting pheromone emitted by the mother dog after birth. These pheromones help comfort and reassure puppies. This pheromone can be detected by dogs of all ages and signals a calm and confident presence. Dor best resilts, start using Adaptil® at least one week prior to the stressul event (if possible), and contine use for a full 30 days. Adaptil® has no contra-indications, can be used long term and also can be used with drug or nutritional therapies.
  • Your veterinarian may recommend medication. There are several short-term medications that can be given on an "as needed" basis. There are also drugs that can be given continuously to manage long-term stressful situations. Long-term medications may be more important when the dog has other anxiety related problems.
  • Consider desensitization training. If a dog is afraid of noises, desensitization training may be needed. Desensitization means to make less sensitive. It involves a gradual process of exposing the dog to the trigger that he fears with a weak, less threatening version. Over time the dog becomes desensitized to the noise at the weaker level. The noise is slowly intensified until a full or nomal version is reached. You can find more information about this process at ASPCA.ORG.

Behavioral therapy should only be carried out when the chance of exposure to noises is small. It typically takes around 6 weeks to begin to see an improvement, and should therefore be started well ahead of anticipated noisy events such as thunderstorms and fireworks. For fireworks and thunderstorm phobias, behavioral therapy is best introduced in the fall, but may vary region to region.

Help Prevent Noise Phobias in Young Dogs To help prevent noise phobias in puppies, it is important to expose puppies to a variety of mild sounds and stimuli while they are young, Use lots of treats and positive reinforcement when they experience new and potentially frightening things.

  • Expose your puppy to a variety of different (mild) noises, lights, handling and movement
  • Fit puppies, especially those adopted from a shelter, with an Adaptil collar as soon as they are adopted. Continue using a collar for the next 4 months to help them through the critical learning and socialization phase.

Review for 3 Pack ADAPTIL On-The-Go Collar for Dogs (Large)
The Adaptil collar is easy to use and works in tandem with the Adaptil diffuser. My goldendoodle is an anxious dog. Not sure why. We're doing what we can to build his self-esteem.

The collar can be quite pricey locally. To find online at a great cost point was fantastic!

Thank you for stocking the product and getting it to us quickly. Product, Service, and Shipping rocks!

Enormous help with our rescue
We adopted our rescue and she has separation anxiety. This collar has really been helpful and we will continue to use them as long as she is part of our family....she is a happy, playful dog when using these....when we tried not using them, she reverted back to her shy, anxious self. Very grateful these exist.

Review for 3 Pack ADAPTIL On-The-Go Collar for Dogs (Large)
I like the diffuser but I like the collars even better. Paulie's stress behavior changes for the worse toward the end of the collar's "life". I recommended the collar to a friend who rescued a dog from the same horrible place from which Paulie came. Her dog had suddenly begun escaping from her very well fenced back yard. As soon as she started using the Adaptil collar, her dog's escaping behavior stopped!

Adaptil collar
I believe that this collar has eased my almost 2 year old husky mix out of her e-collar and into the unframed world again. She had created a sore spot on her front leg and was paying too much attention to it. I used an e-collar until the spot healed and then went to the Adaptil collar immediately afterward. It is so hard to tell what might be natural maturity and what might be influenced by the phermones, however I do think it has an effect. She quit tearing up her bed too!

Adaptil DAP collar - worked wonders for us
This is a non-drug product that is meant for dogs who suffer from raised levels of anxiety. We purchased the DAP collar which are made of plastic impregnated with the pheromone that a female dog releases when she is lactating and needs to calm down her puppies. The same pheromone also calms down other dogs in the vicinity of a lactating female. We noticed a marked difference in our dog's stress indicators within a day of using the collar.

The collars are not cheap (running from $25 to $50 per collar) but if your dogs are always on edge and you don't want to use drugs to calm them down, this collar is worth a try.

My suggestion would be to get the first collar from your vet, along with instructions about how to best use it and what to look for to notice a difference in behavior.

If you are happy with the first collar, then I suggest buying any further collars on-line (they only last for a month). EntirelyPets shipped promptly and the product we received was exactly as ordered. We are very pleased.

Works Well
Collars seem to work fine for thunderstorms that are not right on top of you. Really close strikes still make the dog a bit jumpy. However still worth the money for what it does.

Useless
This collar is totally useless. I got it for my hyper Lab - it did nothing but make him itch! I shortened it and tried it on my equally hyper mixed breed female - Nada, Zip, Nothing. I am VERY disappointed in this product.

Takes the edge off
This product was recommended by my dog's behavioral specialist (doggy shrink) to help her calm down and be more satisfied (in addition to Prozac). It does seem to take the edge off and I can tell when the collar has passed its expiration of a month. I'll use anything that works to make our living arrangement better and be able to keep both of my dogs.

Good Value
Comparable to a local purchase made at a vet clinic, but less expensive.

Been using the product for almost three months. Since we noticed a marked improvement in our Doberman's behavior in the first 24 hours of her wearing it, we were sold. Next, I'm going to try replacing sooner than four weeks. I see a decline in its effectiveness after a week based on how she behaves in weekly dog training, so it could be other factors, of course. We'll tweak the replacement schedule until we find what works best.

Not so good
The clasp on the collar was cheap and broke almost immediately. I drilled a couple holes through it and tied it back together but it stretched to the point that it was no longer snug enough. I am not sure if the formula works or not, perhaps the sprays might work, I just don't know.

Consistent calming assistance
My 10 yo Lab is afraid of anything that remotely sounds like thunder or gun shots. I use a number of methods for reducing anxiety, but he has been wearing these collars for a few years now and they are the BEST for consistent calming and taking the "edge" off. He was refusing to leave the house for walks or rides due to anxiety. The collars are on him, helping at all times. They do take a few days to have a full effect, but consistent wearing definitely helps.

Adaptil Works For My Dog
My collie mix has some general anxiety and is sensitive to engine noises and thunder. He has been wearing an Adaptil collar for two months and appears to be more calm. It has helped with engine noises and thunder but not totally taken away his anxiety about these two things. But I feel that the collar has lessened his general anxiety and I will continue to use it.

Work well ?
The collars seem to work well, but my Smooth-Coated Collie, who is my Service Dog of 7.5 years and who is now 9 yrs. old, has only recently become afraid of the noises in our apartment building, and I don't see too much improvement. He has always been the most chill dog, but even with the collar, he jumps up each time someone opens their mailbox, or a door opens and closes. It upsets me because he is so unhappy now. But I might try the wall unit spray in conjunction with the collars.

Worth every penny!
My vet recommended the Adaptil products when my Lab had some real issues with a Golden puppy that we adopted. Since I have 3 dogs, it was recommended each have a collar. I can honestly say, the Lab, while still somewhat jealous, is much calmer, the Golden puppy much less upset when crated, and my older Golden with the chronic anxiety has definately become calmer. Used in combination with the spray, it has made life much easier and less stressful in our house.

Worth it-
I have been using these collars on my Aussie who has had obsessive licking issues. Since the collar she has stopped. And she's also a much happier dog. It took about a week for me to notice the changes, but they are awesome, and have worked for my dog.

I found the adaptil collar made a dramatic difference to my dogs anxiety. She is a lot calmer and settled and now only barks to alert us to people passing by instead of any little noise.
