I recently read an article about a lady who had a 5 year seasoned red lab. She was petrified of walking down the hallway. It seemed, the closer she got to the air vent, where she could hear the a/c, the more she would shake plus refuse to go further. Once in a while, the dog would wait for him to walk first, plus the she would run past the air vent. She didn’t suppose if it was just the suppose of the air coming from the air vent, or a genuine fear. She finally decided to seek professional care for her dog. The veterinarian told him that numerous critter develop fears over their lifetime. Usually, it isn’t the air conditioning, or even the draft that they fear, but the noise. The sounds of children screaming, fire trucks, or even just a teapot whistling can send them into bouts of shivering plus cowering. I had to laugh when the doctor told him to train the dog. She said to record the sound of the air conditioning plus to play it every afternoon. At first, she was to make the sound, unquestionably quiet. She didn’t want the dog to go into crazy shaking. Then every afternoon, she was turn up the sound, just a bit, until the sound of the air conditioning was like when the AC was running. I don’t suppose if it worked or not, because that is all the article talked about, but it would be nice to know, because then all of us could try it on our cat. She attacks the air vent when the air begins to blow.
