So, the canine love of my life, Lola, is a very, very low-key dog. Until the first clap of thunder or lightening strike. Then I have on my hands a hyperventilating, drooling, burrow-digging, crying mess. I’ve tried numerous options:
Thundershirt – the dog hate it and it did nothing to quell her fears.
Rescue Remedy – her breath smelled better, but didn’t calm her.
A kennel – she scratched at the gate until she broke it and made her paws bleed to escape.
Holding her tightly – works for awhile, until you fall asleep ans she jumps out of the bed to dig a hole in your kitchen door.
