Did you know that many different dog breeds both big and small are afraid of loud noises like thunder? For instance, some Pomeranians are afraid of thunder and even lightning. This is a common fear, but sometimes the fear can get a little out of hand or extreme. In this case, you should talk to your vet. Signs of fear and anxiety may include your Pomeranian simply hiding under the bed or sitting close to you. Extreme anxiety may include your Pomeranian pacing, working himself into a sweat, trembling and becoming frantic. One way to help your Pomeranian remain calm is to make sure you reward calm behavior at all times. When your Pomeranian panics over a storm, try to calm him with a command and then reward him. Your vet Athens, GA can tell you that petting a fearful dog or even allowing the dog to sit close rewards and encourages the behavior instead of addressing it.
