    Question submitted as part of the Crash, Boom, Bang: Update on Canine Noise Phobia Treatments webinar:

    Are there any studies that specifically address fear of high pitched noises?

    Answer provided by Julia (Julie) Albright, MA, DVM, DACVB:

    Dr. Emily Levine’s chapter on sound sensitivities referenced at the end of the presentation has some interesting data and hypotheses about the characteristics of noise and their relationship to fear or startle.
