Dog and storm solution
I just found out my dog loves sleeping in my car during a thunder storm, I cracked the windows. Guess he feels secure and less static build up on his fur. Maybe at ten years of age he hears less inside the car parked under the carport.
Wow! I hope this new idea will keep him calm when we have a really big storm, and there will be plenty this spring here in Fla.
I have tried the clothes and medicine route and that didn't work with him. Hope this helps someone else with their dogs.
