A friend who is a dog trainer and I were discussing my Husky who hates thunderstorms! I was advised to rub her coat down with a dryer sheet to prevent the static from building up in her coat. It was also mentioned that if you have a dog who has issues riding in the car, it could be because of the static in the car. Try rubbing them down with the dryer sheets. I did try it before a storm and she was much calmer.

I have a very fearful adult Catahoula mix named Bruno. He is such an unusual dog. He is severely afraid of thunderstorms.
Bring outdoor pets inside and move everyone to the lowest level of the house before the storm begins. Then read aloud or sing or tell happy stories. Your pet will be comforted by your voice.
