Top 7 Thunderstorm Tips for Calming Your Dog

Written By: Anushka

Before a storm hits, create a safe space for your dog, such as a cozy corner or crate, where they can retreat to during the thunderstorm.


Provide distractions like toys, treats, or puzzle feeders to keep your dog occupied and focused on something positive during the thunderstorm.


Use calming techniques such as gentle massage, aromatherapy, or calming music to help soothe your dog's anxiety during thunderstorms.

Calming Techniques

Gradually let on your dog to recorded thunderstorm sounds at low volume, gradually increasing the volume over time to help desensitize them to the noise.


Remain calm and composed around your dog during thunderstorms, as your behavior can influence their reactions and emotions.

Stay Calm

Consult your veterinarian for advice and possible medication options to help alleviate your dog's anxiety during thunderstorms, if necessary.

Consult Your Vet

Check your dog has proper identification, such as a collar with tags or a microchip, in case they become frightened and escape during a thunderstorm.
