    What's best for a dog who's afraid of loud noises?

    My dog Mojo is afraid of loud noises - from thunder to fire crackers.  He tried clawing out of his cage which broke his nails.

    When it thunders or hears fire crackers I would take him out of his cage so he doesn't injure himself and give him extra cuddles dogs are like kids they need reassurance when they hear strange sounds...

    Let the poor animal hide any where it wants to.

    Mojo is "sound sensitive." I have a sound sensitive dog as well. In fact, she is sensitive about just about everything. I have used the Anxiety Wrap on her long with medication and behavior modification to help her overcome her fear and anxiety. I recommend you consult your veterinarian for a medical work-up to evaluate your dog for any underlying medical issues, then find a food reward-based professional trainer to help you with your dog.
