Having a Pawfect Night’s Sleep
'Helping our canine companions really does come in the form of prevention rather than cure'
There really is nothing more irritating for us humans than when we are disturbed by noises during the night. Whether it's the outside traffic, noisy appliances or even the howling wind, we really cannot stand being awoken when in peaceful slumber!
For our dogs, even the slightest of noises can be unsettling. With our canine’s hearing being far more sensitive than our own, they are able to pick up on the most irritating noises unheard by the human ear. As the weather becomes more tempestuous and darker nights approach quickly, we head to bed earlier than usual and curl up with our four-legged friends to attempt to get a good night’s sleep. However, when those nuisance noises occur, our dogs can become extremely distressed, having detrimental effects on their emotions and bodies.
Here at Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we understand pet behaviour and have a wide range of remedies to assist in a scrumptious silent slumber and keep your pets calm even when the night decides to be more noisy than ever.
Noise Anxiety in Dogs
Noise anxiety in dogs is a phobia or strong feeling of fear around loud noises, like sounds from fireworks or thunderstorms. It can result in an array of anxious behaviours in our four-legged friends. From urination to barking, our dog’s wellbeing can be easily affected by exterior noises they are unfamiliar with.
When it comes to bumps in the night, your dog’s sense of hearing, like our own, is still active during sleep and has evolved to function as a sort of alarm system that is alerted by any sudden or inconsistent changes in sound. This is why an unexpected noise, such as a car door slamming shut, startles your pup into a late-night barking frenzy.
As research provides no real definitive reason as to why our four-legged friends become anxious over sudden noises or sounds, helping our canine companions really does come in the form of prevention rather than cure. With a range of pawfect products to help ease your dog’s stress and worries when the sun goes down, from treats to sprays, we have everything you and your pooch need to get a fantastic and soothing night’s sleep...
