A study was conducted in Finland to measure anxiety and fearfulness in dog breeds.
13,700 dog owners answered questions about their dog's noise sensitivity
and the dog's reaction to other stressful situations.
The findings were interesting!
#1 Male and female dogs were found to be equally fearful of thunder.
#2 Neutered dogs were more fearful of fireworks than intact dogs.
#3 Owner's first dogs were more fearful than if the dog was not the owner's first dog
#4 Dogs with less socialization experience were more likely to be afraid of thunder.
#5 Dogs living with other dogs showed less fear of thunder
#6 Large dogs were less likely to fear thunder than small dogs
#7 The fear of novel situations for dogs decreased after 5 years of age.
#8 Dogs living with couples feared novel situations than those living in a large family.
