Can anyone offer some sound advice on a 2 year old jack who used to love walking but now has an aversion to it , puts the brakes on and wants to go home. The problem stems from a phobia of bangs, fireworks , gunshots the usual, these days the little fella won't go out with throwing a tantrum, even if he hasn't heard any thing. We've tried all sorts theromone , CDs , a comforting jacket, even a rubbish dog shrink. It's a real shame as he used to love going out and I've no idea how overcome the problem, can you help please?...????!!!!
