How sensitive are Gerbils to noise?

I have two gerbils and they stay in my kitchen bc that’s the room with the most natural light but when my dog sees a squirrel he ballistic and jumps at the window barking right by the girbils. He does it around 5 times a day and I’m worried it’s stressing them out. Would him barking like that stress them out and should I move them into my bedroom which is more quiet?

    Well, quieter is certainly better for them. A sudden loud noise can startle and stress them, you don't want that.

    Sounds like you need to take up dog training.

    Yes, I would move them to a quieter location, just see they have good ventilation.

    TV or stereo on lower volume they can get used to in time like learning sounds you make.

    How do they react? Do they seem stressed/scared or do they just go about their lives normally?
