Why Loud Noises And Sounds Spook Dogs 

 Dogs hear at higher frequencies and volumes than humans, so loud noises hurt their ears.

Sensitive Hearing  

Dogs don't understand certain sounds like storms, so they feel on alert and uneasy.

Can't Predict Sounds

Quick loud sounds trigger a dog's instinct to flee potential danger.

Survival Instinct 

 Insufficient exposure to sounds as a puppy can lead to sound sensitivity.  

 Lack of Socialization  

Thundershirts, calming treats, pheromones and music may help relieve noise anxiety.
