what does your dog fear?

I alway thought Molly was totally fearless until the neighbor set of fireworks! She started pacing and cowering which is totally out of character for her. I was just wondering if you GSD has a fear of something

Hi yes alot of dogs have the fear of fireworks. Nero does here in the uk. Bonfire night here is a nightmare its so loud sometimes! Nero does the same thing he just goes and finds a corner and shakes uncontrolably bless him! There is a plug in adapter that you can get from your vets. It gives out a calming scent that dogs find relaxing some sort of theromones? I have not tried this product yet, But I think I will come the 5th november!

Apollo is terrified of thunder and Riley is scarred of fire. When he was about 5 months I was at my parents and we were having a hot dog grill out and he was playing off leash. I was bust fixing something and uncaught Riley out of the corner of my we and he was at the fire pit getting ready to take a big sniff. I was probably about 15 feet away or something and yelled and ran over but it was too late. He already put his nose near it and burnt himself. Now if he's near me when I light a candle he flies out of the room.

Mine is afraid of thunder, and the toaster is terrifying to him. Also, pen clicks...Needless to say clicker training never really worked for him.

Well, I'd say Jack's not afraid of the devil himself - except he hasn't run into the devil yet.

Sofie doesn't like fireworks.

To be honest, not much. Fireworks, loud trucks, vacuum cleaners, thunder, lightning, any kind of loud noise... all of that stuff doesn't phase her at all.

The one thing I can think of is when I open the ironing board. I think the way it pops open makes her jump back a little, but then she's curious and starts to smell it.

Good for Jackson- winter seems to be over. He HATES snowmen! We built one and he just couldn't get over it, then we made two more and he had to keep looking over his shoulder when he went out to go potty!!

Plastic bags and gunfire. For some reason thunder and fireworks don't phase him, but gunfire? He goes nuts.
