Mt Pleasant Dogs and Thunder
Anne Blythe wrote a great article recently that was in the Post and Courier. See the whole article at: http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2011/jul/31/31dogstorm
NC State researchers have been looking into phobias and anxieties exhibited by dogs for years now and have found that around 40 percent families studied reported some sort of anxiety for at least one of their dogs.
The article was really more about a device designed by Phil Blizzard, the Thundershirt, but we just want to pass along to you that your dogs’ negative reactions to thunderstorms in certainly not unusual. We see examples of this during kennel pet boarding to varying degrees.
