Create a comfortable safe space for your dog during thunderstorms. A cozy den or blanket can provide them with a sense of security.
Distract your dog with their favorite toys or treats to redirect their attention from the storm's noise and flashes of lightning.
Playing soothing music or white noise can help drown out the thunder and provide a calming atmosphere for your dog.
Consider using a thunder jacket, which applies gentle pressure to your dog's body, providing a sense of security during storms.
Use positive reinforcement techniques to reward your dog for calm behavior during thunderstorms.
If your dog's anxiety during storms is severe, consult your veterinarian for guidance and potential medication options.
Remember, your dog looks up to you for comfort. Shower them with patience and love during storms to help them feel secure.
