I have an 11 year old lab that is very sensitive to SOME noises, primarily beeps from a timer on the stove, watch or something on TV, rumble strips are also a big fear. Of course the microwave beep doesn't bother him, guessing it is due to food association. He is not bothered by the vacuum, shooting, leaf blower, drills or other loud noises. He wears an e-collar when hunting and this doesn't seem to bother him.
We have new appliances so last night we used the timer on the stove, I had the dog up in the kitchen and was distracting him with a treat when the timer went off, he immediately began to shake and left the room and tries to hide someplace.
Any ideas on what to try and help with this?
I just purchased a used 2up, which is the first snowmobile I've owned and I plan to primarily use it for ice fishing. What is everyone using for auger racks? Are the Kolpin grips strong enough to hold an auger? I have a Nils auger which is very light, but I got the sled with the idea my dad could use it when he's at the cabin, and he has an ION that is about 22 pounds. I see the Kolpin Rino Grip Pros are rated to 50 pounds, but I wasn't sure if that's a best-case scenario and not banging around while driving.
I got a 2011 Polaris IQ LXT if the make/model matters.
Thanks for helping a newby out.
