I recently read an article about a man who had a many year ancient yellow lab. He was petrified of walking down the hallway. It seemed, the closer he got to the air vent, where he could hear the cooling system, the more he would shake as well as refuse to go further. Once in a while, the pet would wait for him to walk first, as well as the he would run past the air vent. He didn’t think if it was just the think of the air coming from the air vent, or a genuine fear. He finally decided to seek professional care for his pet. The veterinarian told him that many pet develop fears over their lifetime. Usually, it isn’t the air conditioner, 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 as well as cowering. I had to laugh when the doctor told him to train the pet. He said to record the sound of the air conditioner as well as to play it every day. At first, he was to make the sound, actually quiet. He didn’t want the pet to go into crazy shaking. Then every day, he was turn up the sound, just a bit, until the sound of the air conditioner was enjoy when the A/C was running. I don’t think if it worked or not, because that is all the article talked about; It would be nice to know, because then I could try it on my cat. He attacks the air vent when the air begins to blow.
