Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about Holly's fears. This is sometimes tough to get past but there are a few tricks that may help. After this type of trauma, you will have to "Desensitize" Holly to being with you by taking her out many times over and over. Before doing this, purchase a DAP Collar at the pet store. This is a canine pheromone that acts as a calming agent and will help decrease her anxiety about going out with you...she is now associating this noise with being with you. Once the collar is on, coax her out without forcing her and always give her a treat when she even makles 1 step....you will have to be patient with her but eventually Holly will get past this. If the DAP Collar is not enough, your vet will have a good anti anxiety medication to help Holly past this.
