Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech. I would like to assist you.

I understand the anxiety issue your dog is having. I would video the episode from waling up from sleep to barking and aimlessly running. This may be seizure activity in her sleep. It would be wise to get a few mins of Video for the Vet.

As far as the Noise Phobia, there are medications that Bell can be put on to help her through the Anxiety. My big Pitbull has anxiety issues with a New baby in the house, so I myself, had to have her put on an antianxiety medication that she takes daily.

The Video will help your Vet to determine if the walink barking is a behaviorial or a Medical issue.

In either case when it is determined what is causing the behavior, the Vet can get the proper medication or suggest behavioral modification.

Please hit reply to discuss this information.
