ATF begs to differ, but yeah, doggy earpro exists and if they're with you they should probably have it. Note, getting them to wear it is probably a whole nother issue.
Not a strange question at all. Don't have a dog myself, but it makes plenty of sense to want to protect their hearing. Wasn't even aware hearing protection for them was made in the first place, but looks like it is. eg: [link] (I don't endorse or have any experience with that particular product. Just the first thing I came across.)
On an off-topic side note, if you are concerned about protecting your dog's hearing, then you should buy them dog specific hearing protection. No doubt having a dog wear human ear muff does nearly nothing.
They are Mutt Muffs, you can get them on Amazon. There's a link in the description of the video. I think they are about $60, they come in different sizes. Here's the link from the video.
Yes! Get them a pair of Muff Mutts: [link]
They are made like pilot headsets, but for dog ears. I use these when I take my dogs out to bars or shows as well.
Then I just buckle them in so in case anything happens they don't go flying into controls, just buy a simple seat belt harness.
I got a hunting dog, I go quail/dove/duck hunting every season and he brings the birds back. He loves hunting but since I got ear plugs in for safety I also use ear protection for my dog. I think Cody could use something like this but have some folks in the costume department modify these to look really cool for TV. This is what I use on my dog when hunting:
These have mixed reviews but I have had luck with them.
If you're pretty sure it's mostly the light and the sound, you could invest in some blackout blinds for your windows, and condition your dog to wear "Mutt Muffs." There are also websites that play white noise to drown out some of the noise, as well.
I would not hesitate to ask your vet for medications here. There are safe medications to help your dog through their thunderstorm fears, and it's really best to help your dog immediately instead of waiting for a bigger issue...Some dogs even start to associate drops in barometric pressure before a storm starts with intense fear and anxiety.
ETA: I've also heard of folks stuffing the inside of the Mutt Muffs with fabric or cotton for extra noise reduction.
Here's an alternative to making your own, for not too much more than what I expect the cost of parts+shipping would be to do your own work. Called Mutt-Muffs, and they're decent at helping dogs stay hearing-safe in the flight with you.
> Where do I buy earmuffs for a working dog?
You can buy ear protection for dogs. [link]
> And all the sheep in the flock at lambing time, when I shoot the stalking fox?
I think the Lambs will be fine with a load noise once in a while.
> How do I hold a conversation with the driver, whilst I stand on the back of the ute, prowling the edge of the paddock?
I would hope when you're actually shooting something you're concentrating on shooting and not shooting and talking at the same time.
Are those doggo earmuffs? Wonder if I can get a pair for my dog edit found a pair on amazon
Mutt Muffs DDR337 Hearing Protection for Dogs, Black, Large [link]
I know they’re a bit expensive but they’re the cheapest I found and they should last for life
They are mutt muffs. I have them for all three of my shepherds and they all keep them on.
Earmuffs for dogs? They're mad expensive though
I got them from Amazon. She is 60 pounds and has a fairly large head. The large fits her perfectly. There are a lot of fireworks this time of year near me, and these have helped her out a lot.
Whatever you find, don't forget ear protection for you and your dog.
I gotchu fam.
get these mate
In future these may be of assistance. They're pretty common for dogs coming to the gun range.
There's a pretty good selection of products for hunting dogs. I'm sure they would work the same for your situation.
Except, we have invented them. They are commonly known and used. Even in combat when required.
Found these: [link]
I've seen people use doggles on the range. Muffs usually look something like this: [link]
Personally, haven't tried it on either of my boys, but their line of work is sheep herding.
I believe they make things to cancel out noises for dogs,
It might be an option, there's probably something cheaper or you can make something similar yourself.
