Thunder and lightning are scary, that’s a fact. Even many people are afraid of them, and most dogs are no different as we can see when they often tremble, shiver and try to hide during a storm. The flashing lightning, the boom of the thunder, the house shaking, dogs are highly sensitive to all this unexpected noise and movement, which can wear highly on their nerves.

Dogs are very sensitive to smell and sound, especially to high-frequency sounds. In a thunderstorm, dogs can probably smell the ionizing effect in the air and they are scared from the great impact of the sound of thunder. The frequencies of the sounds are wide, and probably high-frequency sounds are produced as well, similar to fireworks, which scare many dogs as well.

This adorable Collie dog found the perfect place to hide when lightning strikes. 7-year-old Dell cross hates all loud noises, so during a nasty thunderstorm he seeks refuge inside the dryer! Watch how comfortably he tucked inside the drying machine and refuses to move when owner eventually finds him. Hilarious!

The good news is that the storm will pass, because storms always pass, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do something to comfort your pet during a thunderstorm! There has been a recommendation to rub dryer sheets on your dog’s fur during thunderstorms, to help minimize the effects of the static electricity. Does this work?
