Noise Sensitive Dog

Happy Holidays,

I am trying to get some help for my 8 year old Austrailian Cattledog/Sherperd mix. She has VERY BIG EARs. HUGE.
When she is in my apartment and hears a cracking, thuddy, banging, stomping or snap type coming from upstairs or outside she lowers her head and tries to find a safe place to hide. Fireworks and shot like noises are a nightmare for both her & my male dog, but he is not bothered by the other noises I mentioned above.
The sound of passenger planes flying disturb her when she is indoors. Helicopters are not a problem. If we are at a park and people are playing softball or baseball the sound of the bat hitting the ball or the ball hitting the backboard makes her terribly nervous. She cowers and trembles.
If the neighbor upstairs drops something she gets up and moves to a different spot out of fear. My male seems to be picking up some of her fear and it concerns me.
Wind can be a problem at times too and it doesn't have to be howling wind.
Sometimes she will have a stressful time during walks and just want to go into a doorway.
When she was just a pup she was afraid of the garbage trucks and street sweepers and if the windows would creek from the slightest movement not caused by me.
Windchimes disturb her too.

She is a sweet dog, loves to run and play. Adores people and strangers.
She has an aggressive side to her that comes out towards other dogs. Sometimes it is as if she is reacting out of the attitude, 'im gonna get you before you get me.' Other times it is as if she senses the weekness of another dog or she thinks she has to protect her territory or other pack members. She shares and plays well with her friends and dogs she learns to trust. She is lean, smart, excellent appetite, loves life when she is not being bombarded with uncomfortable sounds or potentially threatening dogs.
Any suggestions?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Your dog seems to be of a Phosphorous constitution.Give him a couple of doses of Phosphorous 30 and then wait for a few days to judge response.

If phosphorous fails: Try Aurum Metallicaum 30.

Thank you... I will do so immediately.
I just gave her 5 pellets of the only phosphorous that I have which is phosp 200ck, is this ok? The dosing said 5 pellet for children and adults.

When should I give the next dose?

Thank you for your help.

Watch your dog's symptoms for at least a week and then report on this forum.

I know it was suggested I watch my dog's symptoms for a week, but she is so disturbed that I have to ask if there is something that might work a little quicker. I don't think she is getting much sleep and she looks so stressed.
She goes from one spot to another every few minutes. She was just in the bathtub, heard a noise then came over to me and pawed me (which she rarely ever does, she only does it when she is trying to get me to help her from the noise)
She is laying on a blanket i put in a hallway listening. The neighbor upstairs is moving around so she is hearing the creeking of the floors and the thud noises.
When I was in the kitchen she came into the kitchen sat down facing the wall and trembled her eyes closing like she was falling asleep then opening again. Her noise occassionally drips clear.
She doesn't like to be held but will let me cover her for a bit with my body. She will stop trembling for a moment but then it starts up again.
The noise from water going the pipes seems to disturb her too; either nieghbor is turning on water or flushing and the noise isn't loud but she is picking up on everything! listening for it it seems.
Can anyone tell me this is about?

Please, after the first 5 pellets, my dog has not improved. I cannot watch as she suffers like this. In fear, she comes up to me and nudges me (which she NEVER does) to get me to do something for her. Should I be giving her more phosophorus, a different remedy such as Aconite or Silica or add some flower essenses? Please Please advise.

Remember, her noise sensitivity is most dramatic in my apartment. She is not affected by the radio or music, just thuddy, creeky noises through the walls or outside noises like fireworks and snap-like sharp noises and sometimes wind chimes wooden or metal.

Thank you.

Two other remedies that you could try is Borax and Opium.Both of them are frightened by noises and are sensitive to them.Borax is indicated more if the dog also has a marked fear of downward motion.

Opium hears the smallest noises and it disturbs them.It seems as if they are listening for noises.Best will be if you could meet a homepath in person.It is difficult to prescribe for a dog from a distance.

You may contact Wim, a very fine homeopathic vet..You can find his contact details from hpathy forum.

I have a seizure dog who is on PB. He is 10 years old and a Shih Tzu, male. If my husband coughs or clears his throat from mucus Harley, my dog, runs away to a private room and scratches the carpet. He is so overly sensitive now that any type of clanging from dishes in the kitchen, loading the dishwasher etc. he puts his tail down and scoots as fast as he can to another room.

When people come over he also scratches the carpet or he scratches the door to go outside. He then lays down in the grass until I come out to find him and coax him back in doors.
