Thunderstorm anxiety

Monsoon season is swiftly approaching. It’s not just the boom of thunder that generates a fear response in fearful dogs. Lightning, wind, rain, dark skies, changes in barometric pressure and even odors can elicit a fearful response. Also, storm phobic dogs often know a storm is on the way long before humans do. Do everything reasonably possible to limit your dog’s exposure to storms. Find a safe place your dog can go to avoid all aspects of the storm.
Minimizing your dog’s storm anxiety:
Ask for help. If nothing you attempt seems to help your phobic pet, I recommend consulting an animal behaviorist in your area. Call us for the local behaviorist that we recommend.
