Christine

my poor fur babies

Recommended Posts

so we are having some pretty horrific weather today, tornados and thunderstorms-all that good stuff.

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?

Awww I dont have any advice but the poor thing. I hate seeing animals when they are scared and timid.

My advice is to give her lots of love and hugs.

I keep holding her and but she is just being quiet, so is my boy but he doesn't seem as freaked out. Luckily I get to be at home with them tomorrow all day so that will help, they love it when I am home with them. I always say I wish I could be a stay at home doggy mom.

My Daisy is afraid of the rain, but only in the back yard. She will hold it as long as physically possible (one day, she didn't go out at all util about midnight).

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)

Oh Christine, poor things! Lots of love and cuddles hopefully will do the trick. I hate it when I see animals timid and scared too.

Try to give them a lot of treats to lead them the way, be patient, and constantly repeat it.

 

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!

 

Good luck!!

well luckily today is a nice sunny day and when I picked my DH up at the metro last night I took the dogs and they were so happy to go potty, I think the leash thing worked, they felt safer on the leash or something. So anyway all seems well today.

We have a similar problem with our dog, she just shakes when there is thunders.

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

My baby Jackson is not afraid of storms, but rather by beeping - strange really, beeping of the microwave, the oven (when it beeps as it comes to the set temperature) and especially the smoke alarm, when it is accidentally set off.

 

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!

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
