The wind picks up, the skies darken, and you hear the rolling thunder in the distance... there’s a storm approaching and your pooch has fear in their eyes! Has your pet shown signs of anxiety during thunderstorms? We’re diving into what causes the jitters and what you can do to help them!
Dogs’ senses are much better than ours in many ways and you’re probably not surprised to find that they can sense a storm coming long before we do. They can feel the change in pressure, low-frequency rumbles, static electricity, and as we know their hearing is much better than ours as well. For this reason, your dog may become anxious before the storm even hits.
