I WANT TO HELP MY PUPPY WITH LOUD NOISES
HELP YOUR PUPPY COPE WITH FEARS
Why is your puppy so scared?
At first, your puppy can be scared by many things, many sounds, many people: everything is totally new and unknown to them.
Give your puppy the opportunity to learn by exposing your puppy to new sounds, loud noises and unfamiliar situations.
Expose your puppy gradually to each category of noise, to help them get familiar and settled.
Do not punish your puppy if they act out, this will only distress them further. On the contrary, reward your puppy when they manage to settle down, for instance in the presence of this “scary noisy thing” (also know as the vacuum cleaner).
The best period to expose your puppy to new sounds is from 8 to 16 weeks, a period of maximum sensitivity.
