Ltlgto, thanks for the fear thread, it was very informative. However I am really at a loss how to deal with this. Last night, Layla freaked out when I was cooking and the smoke alarm went off(what's that got to say about my cooking,lol) Anyway, tonight, I was JUST COOKING, no alarms, and she got all to shaking and looking for anybody who would hold her. How do I treat her when this happens. I made her lie in her crate. I do not want a neurotic dog, someone tell me how to head this off right away!
