Thunderstorms and your dog

You are often surprised by how brave your dog can be, and you admire her ability to march into new situations with ease. However, there is still something that gets under her skin – thunderstorms. How can you help ease her nervousness when they come around?

Your pet may be startled by the loud noises and flashes of light that a thunderstorm brings with it because she isn’t sure if these pose a threat to her. Being unable to identify where these are coming from can be disconcerting to her, and make her unable to think of much else. You will need to offer plenty of reassurance during these times, as she needs to know that you don’t consider them a threat. Try staying close to her, and talking in a reassuring voice. Your local best vets Indianapolis, IN can offer additional guidance.
