You can definitely help with issues like this. How many dog classes and what training has she attended to be proactive with this. Not a sudden problem, right? But one she's noticed and been working on proactively?

Has she been clicker training? HUGE help to desensitize and start linking up GOOD things (treats) with scary things (noise) so the dogs start to think of loud noises as meaning LIVER, CHEESE, ROAST BEEF and that's not scary at all

Intro to Clicker Training (perfect for puppies!)
