Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

Does she only act anxious when there's a storm coming?

Do other loud noises startle her?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No she is acing that way almost every day, usually in the afternoon and evening. She is not startled otherwise, but we do live in a relative quiet place. She does not respond when one of the neighbors rides his Harley by.

Does it seem to be later afternoon that it starts?

Does she eventually settle down in the evening?

I think I have wasted my money on this site. No response to assist me and only an offer to spend more money. I would prefer a refund since I have not gotten an answer
