Why does my dog do this?

So, I have a border collie, and he is highly emotional! Whenever he is inside and I turn the ceiling fan on he goes absolutely nuts! He crawls into my arms and starts shaking. Why does he do this? He has never been abused and I have a golden retriever and he isn't fazed by the fan.

A dogs hearing is very keen .. perhaps there is something about the noise the fan makes that bothers him .. especially if he has an inner ear issue of some sort.

Maybe he is just afraid of the fan. Some dogs have irrational fears.

That could just be a quirk of his.

He is VERY quirky. If I give him a bath he won't come back in the house for a month because he is afraid of getting another bath

Maybe he doesn't like the noise the fan makes or the wind. My cats don't like the noise of a vacuum.
