Helping Pets Cope with Thunderstorms

- Quiet Hideaway – Make sure that your pet has access to a quiet place where he or she can go to hide. If possible, try to block out the lightening and cover up the sound of the thunder.
- Stay Distracted – Sometimes playing a game or distracting your pet with their favorite toy can keep them at ease.
- Conditioning Behavior – Behavior modification can desensitize your pet to the sound of a storm. Try playing recordings in short intervals for conditioning.
