I guess it's already Friday in Queensland, so before I forget to post: I do hope that Moo is full of Mooishness and not fear during the storm.

Thank you Mary Jane hugging Well we had thunder last night at bedtime (not predicted and not shown on the rain radar frown ) but she made it through okish. We were due for storms today so I have given her the beta blocker earlier and just had a few thunder cracks, so far she is not to bad but certainly not Mooishness at the moment frown

Have you ever tried L-theanine? I was on a social anxiety forum (doing research for jazz), and some said that they had very good luck with this, as much as with their beta blocker.

Lisa no I haven't. It seems like I have bought so many different things for both pups with no success frown I know you will be flat out but if you have a chance would you mind please suggesting a brand and dosage please?

Have you ever taken her for a ride in the car during a storm? For Kramer that was magic - when there was a storm or fireworks, we would ride around, get some food maybe, play some Crosby Stills and Nash, and no problem at all. For a dog like Bella, who hates riding, that would be a punishment, but for Kramer, it was so relaxing. By the time we got home, he could think to do obedience and we would do that until the storm ended, or he decided I could take my treats and shove them, he was done being my monkey boy. wink

It only worked if I was home of course, because he did not have his own car.

I love the idea of the dog having his own car to drive around in storms! GSD Storm Chaser!

Yes! Great new show on Animal Planet.

It's even going on "close" to Miss Moo with the New Zealand driving dogs:

It would be nice if a car ride was therapeutic for her.

The car is a Faraday cage!!! Therefore, no electrostatic in here!!!

That's why you cannot be struck by lightening in a car, as long as you keep all windows closed.

If it's that effect that calmed Kramer, then it won't matter whether the car is moving or standing still.

Woohoo, I'll try that with Chip who reacts to the electrostatic. Still leaves the thunder and lightning, and any conditioned association between thunder/lightning and expecting electrostatic. But, hey, not experiencing the electrostatic will make a difference.
