Someone else MUST be having this problem... Fredo has been having anxiety attacks whenever the wind kicks up and whistles. I have no idea why; I've had him sine puppy-dom and this only started about 4 months ago. We get a lot of wind and his attacks last for hours. He won't lay down; he walks in circles (literally); pants, and shakes. We need HELP!

I found with my girl some small trauma (felt unstable, got blown over, etc) can cause an elevated sense of fear. Also, when you are that small the fear of being blown away is not irrational. Appreciate how you might feel if you were under 10 lbs when confronted by a huge gust of wind that can blow a 3000+ lb car around.
