THUNDERSTORMS and fire-works are a big part of summer, and while fun for humans they may cause your furry friends extreme distress.

Doggy Dogma owner Jen Higgins said there were many methods to help combat your pooch's nervousness when it came to loud noises.

She holds classes every day except Friday at Ipswich, Marburg and Brookfield.

Ms Higgins said by six to 18 months the "fear factor" in most dogs would be gone.

"Fireworks are the same deal - dogs' hearing are much better than ours, and dogs pick it up better than us and make it uncomfortable," she said.

"The first point of call is management - keep them inside and take steps to prevent them from running away or somewhere safe where they can't escape."
