My 3yr old cairn is very frightened of noises any sudden bang

Customer Question

my 3yr old cairn is very frightened of noises any sudden bang or thunder/fireworks or gunshots sends her into a frenzy. If we are on a walk and any sudden noise happens she cowers and just runs off which sometimes is very dangerous. In the house if any loud bang or firework or thunder happens she sits and shakes. I have tried all the dog calming products and the vet has recently given us a course of Zyklene for a month which has made no difference.
