my poor fur babies

When I got home this afternoon it had stopped raining for a little bit and I tried to get the dogs to go outside, usually after being in thier crates all day they are very excited to go out, but my little girl kept trying to climb up my leg and just wanted to be held. She is walking around all slow and scared. She wants nothing to do with being outside and my boy refuses to go outside during the rain.
Anyone else have dogs scared of weather and what do you do to help them get through it?

However, she's not afraid of going out in the front in the rain...what works with her (sometimes) is putting the leash on her and going into the back yard with her. For some reason, the yard is OK if she has the leash on...I wish I knew what goes through their heads.
My sisters dog hides under the bed ANYTIEM there's thunder, even if it's so far off that we can't hear her. The vet told her about sometihng called Calm, it's some kind of dog tea or something...it's expensive, but the vet said it works (I think you have to give it to them 20 or so min before the storm)

Give them a lot of courages, and tell them how good they are when they move towards the door or rain, even just tend to move motion!

Our vet suggested "chill out" pills but they are very strong and it breaks my heart to see her so sedated.
We looked into some homeopathic remedies ( I used to work in a Homeopathic pharmacy) but we haven't had much luck.
I went to a training class and they talked about doing this sort of wrapping to make them secure Tellington TTouch Training

When he is afraid he tries to snuggle with me - my method to calm him is to literally offer to tuck him in on his bed - and that seems to calm him. He likes it when he is completely tucked in, and his eyes are covered - Sounds silly but it works!
