Why do dogs nut off in thunderstorms?
Many dogs are distressed by unexpected loud noises, but hat separates a wailing siren or fireworks show from a thunderstorm in a dog's mind, however, is that dogs may actually realise a thunderstorm is coming. As National Geographic explains, not only can dogs easily see when the sky gets dark and feel when the wind picks up, but they can also perceive the shift in barometric pressure that occurs before a storm. The anxiety of knowing loud noise is on its way may upset your dog as much as the noise itself. Static electricity could also add to this anxiety, especially for dogs with long and/or thick hair. Draping a blanket over their crate, which can help muffle noise. For dogs that don't use (or like) crates, a cosy room with drawn blinds and a white noise machine can work instead.
