Kimba has become increasingly afraid of Thunderstorms.
It starts before (well before I know/hear) the storm starts.
She starts to pant and shake (like shivering) and practically sit on top if you and if that fails proceeds to hide under a bed/chair/table.
She seems to only be afraid if the actual Thunder (she doesn't like getting wet but she isnt afraid of rain or lightning)
She isn't afraid of loud noises in general, sometimes things will startle her but she doesn't fear them. She is ok with general loud noises from the kids, fireworks & TVs/xbox game bass..
I have never had any experience with a dog that is afraid of storms like this.
My question is, What do I do when she is like this?
Do I ignore her, comfort her, ignore the situation etc?
I really want her to be okay during a storm as I cannot always assure I will be home during them.
