Reactivity in the Home

  • Post a sign on your front door instructing visitors to avoid using the doorbell or knocking.

  • If you have a mail slot in your door, place a mailbox farther away so deliveries can be made without upsetting your pet.

  • Ensure all visitors know to contact you ahead of time so you can manage your pet effectively.

  • Use blinds, curtains, or privacy window film to block visual access to the front of the house.

  • Play white noise to help block out environmental sounds that may trigger a reaction.

  • Read this excellent article on sound masking: Sound Masking to Help Dogs with a Noise Phobia - Whole Dog Journal Eileen Anderson, MM, MS
