"I asked my vet about xanax and he didn't believe in it so I don't know how much I would give him.  I have it in the house but that is people dose.  Anyway the ace seems to work on the 4th but I don't do it other days"

"Peri - I meant to add that, though I've never tried it, I think dogs can have Xanax. Neither one of my girls have that kind of anxiety now, but if Olivia was still with us and still afraid that would be something I would be interested to try -…"

"Stacy we use ace on 4th of July only, I don't like to use it too often.  We just hold and cuddle him and do the best we can at this time"

"My old vet once prescribed acepromazine for Olivia for storm anxiety. We only tried it a couple times because I thought it was awful. She would stumble around, unable to settle down and unable to walk in a straight line. I don't think she…"

"Nope not sure there will be a fight and actually I doubt it but being they are dogs, the possibility is there and I never believe in taking chances.  The problem is, we still do not know if DJ is reacting to Bogey or the thunder.  We still…"

"I think crating with the TV on when you are gone and there is a threat of a storm might be the simplest solution.  You will know that both are safe - so YOU can relax. Bogey might take some comfort in being in his crate. Are you sure that there…"

HELP! Fireworks/Thunder

I am going to post this as a blog because  it's too long for a newsfeed.  I have spoken to trainers who suggested a behaviorist but they are way to expensive ($700!) and there isn't even a guarantee. I have been grabbing DJ and telling him to go in his crate and he does and even though I never lock the door, when this happens and my husband is not home I do and he just lays in there fine and calm. I have to hold Bogey during fireworks and thunder and can't hold them both at the same time (Bogey…See More

"We have tried everything with Bogey and holding him is all that helps.  DJ gets held by me while Bogey gets held by my husband.  There is nowhere in the house to escape the noise and Bogey just wants to be wherever we are.  We will be…"

Peri, You should be able to change your phone's camera to a photo size that would work for the calendar. Here is a link to the info I found on your camera that tells you how to change the settings. Pick the largest size and it will meet the pixel requirement.
