Sometimes having a dog is a pain in the ass.

Maybe your dog has a history of something else happening in the past when voices were raised and profanities used?

You need to train him like in Jack London's "Call Of the Wild" so that he recognizes that loud swears are expressions of love.

He's always been Mr. Sensitive.

Btw, I didn't mean with you.  If your pooch is a rescue, there's plenty that react in fear from that kind of stuff due to a history.  Should have clarified.

Nope, no history there. He's been ours since eight weeks.

Yeah, yeah.  That's wuss. ;)

Our largest cat (22-23lbs) is like that too, but in the several months before he was found roaming an auto parts lot as an older kitten, heaven knows what might have happened.

I was once replacing some wallpaper the cat had destroyed (about two weeks after I put it up:angry::angry:). I was angry about having to do it and it wasn't going well, at all. I ended up ripping off a piece of the border, throwing it out into the room and saying many bad things, at great volume.

He got up, went out in the hall and puked.

If I was doing that, the big one would have started, bolted from the room, and hid cowering somewhere, possibly puking from fear.

This past summer, we cleaned much of my basement office.  Turned out that was a safe and secure hiding place for him, and it caused the animal equivalent of a panic attack.  We had to get him meds for occasional use, he was so worked up he couldn't pee for like a day and a half and we were worried it'd back up to his kidneys and kill him.  Took the poor thing a week to get over it.

Leaves the kitchen if there's going to be "sizzling", hides if the smoke alarm goes off and if you extend a tape measure in his direction, he'll run away, all butthurt, giving the "why do you hate me?" face.
