    Please help! My German Shepard is a farm dog, (he lives on the farm too). He’s 8 years old and heard gunshots for the first time this week. He was moved to the opposite side of the farm before gunshots but he’s obviously shook from the sounds. He’s not himself, he’s not eating properly and can’t settle himself.The shotgun had to be used 3 times now. My heart is broken for him. I don’t know what to do to help him.

    There are various things you can buy to help calm dogs, including diffusers and body wraps to make them feel more secure. However, as your dog's reaction has been quite extreme and he is not eating properly I would seek the advice of a vet. Is he likely to keep hearing the gunshots in the future? How long have you had him?
