I guess I'm one of the really lucky ones.  Neither of my guys is afraid of 
fireworks or thunderstorms.  But then again, I'm outside playing with them 
and jackpotting them with treats the whole time that the fireworks and 
storms are on.  As far they're concerned, when big noise starts, that's 
playtime.  As an avid dragracer, I can't afford to have dogs that are afraid 
of noise (jet cars, funny cars, unmuffled race cars or fireworks).  From the 
time they are 2 months old, my dogs go to the track with us and that's 
playtime.  As far as gunshots are concerned, my guys associate them with 
squirrel and chipmunks as whenever those little pests are around, I take the 
air gun and shoot at them (I'm not trying to hit them just dissuade them 
from being around), the dogs figure that's great fun and become totally 
excited whenever they see a gun or hear a car backfire.   I've had 2 dogs in 
the past that were noise sensitive and I always thought that part of the 
reason it got so bad was because I babied them, cooing to them, and trying 
to protect them from storms & noise.  With these last two, I've totally 
changed my strategy and it seems to be working...so far (one is 6, one is 1 
year).  If that changes in the future, I'll have to change my strategy 
again.

I totally understand! Bull dose not mind gunshots or the fire work but he 
freaks when it storms! I bought the D.A.B collar and I can say it dose 
really help we used to have to knock him out too...I hated that
with the collar he comes to me stessed but I tell him to go lay down and he 
will go lay in the tub..he dose not pace as much.
I just got the spray and the plug in I will let you all know if they help 
better
When they stress so it worries the heck out of you.
