Myko is generally a happy dog, but he freaks out when he hears loud noises. His family finally found a way to calm him down, and it came in the form of an Eeyore costume.
Myko used to live in a high-kill shelter before coming to his forever family. Elena, his mom, remembers very well how she instantly got smitten by Mykoâs adorable brown eyes when she saw his photos online. She knew right away that Myko belongs to their family.
The adorable pup settled in nicely with his new home. His loving and happy personality started shining through. But Elena noticed that Myko could get pretty sensitive. Things like the fireworks, ceiling fan, and other noises make him extremely anxious.
And when Myko is anxious, he would bark non-stop. Elena was concerned about Mykoâs behavior, so she started looking for ways to calm him down during these times. And she did not need to look very far. The solution to Mykoâs anxious barking was his old Halloween costume.
Mykoâs quiet ears
Elena read somewhere that a form-fitting outfit that wraps hugs the ears snuggly can help Myko calm down when triggered by certain noise. Elena remembered purchasing an Eeyore costume for Myko for Halloween, and this headpiece fit Mykoâs ears perfectly. Elena donned the costume over Myko, and the dog quieted down instantly.
Since then, Myko knows that when his mom pulls out the âquiet ears,â it means he needs to calm down and relax. Myko looks cute on those ears, they feel comfy, and his mom gives him a treat each time he wears them, so heâs more than happy to put them on.
Elena wants to reassure Myko that having those emotions is okay and that he is safe and loved in his home. All he needs to do is wear is his quiet ears, be in the presence of his loving humans, and everything feels right in the world.
