Dog Behaviour Fear Of Fireworks
A brand new product is now available in the UK as a training aid and comfort for dogs who have a fear of fireworks. This dog behaviour causes a great deal of distress to dog and owner. Offered by Ray & Dianne Davies, who used the ThunderBand to help their own nervous greyhound, this is a two-part dogs hearing protection system. Invented by an American whose dog was terrified of thunder storms, the combined earpads and headwrap act to comfort the nervous dog and also muffle the sound of loud bangs and other distressing noises.
Dianne Davies from the website http://www.thunderband.co.uk states: “The ThunderBand can be used with other dog behaviour aids like veterinary drugs or noise desensitization CDs to help the terrified dog like ours. The advantage of the ThunderBand is that it can be put on immediately the loud noises are expected or threatened. The dog doesn’t seem to mind, in fact he welcomes the comfort the ThunderBand brings. Eventually they can often be weaned off the drugs altogether.”
Loud noises can be a problem for dogs all year round, as fireworks are being used for all occasions, but the dark winter months tend to be the worst, with Halloween, November 5th and New Years Eve all being distressing events for dogs. Dogs may be afraid of thunderstorms all year round, or gunshots and traffic noise. The website alleges that the ThunderBand addresses these problems, whether used alongside more established calming remedies or as a stand-alone dog behaviour aid. If you watch dogs who are scared of bangs they tend to bury their heads under the bed covers, and this product seems to mimic that action, delivering a swaddled head, muffled noise, and peace.
