palmettobug Posted July 20, 2016 Share Posted July 20, 2016 Hi all: Johnny has a phobia (I hope that's the right word!) of the sound of lawn equipment, like mowers, leaf blower, weed eaters, etc. He does okay with thunderstorms and faraway fireworks (the popping ones are still a problem), but it's weird that he gets so stressed out about these noises. So, how did he get scared of these sounds? I'm guessing it might have something to do with the vibrations, too. I give him Composure calming treats if I can get them in him, and they work, but the landscapers start at 0700 and each surrounding complex has a different day (ours is Thursday), so I guess I'm going to have to start giving him them every night. Is there a better alternative for long term use? Also, I've tried putting the TV or radio on, but he can still hear them over that. Thanks! Quote Current Crew: Gino-Gene-Eugene!
