ONE OF OUR GUARDIAN PUPS RAN AWAY DURING LAST WEEKS HAIL STORM. The hailstones were as big as tennis balls & thundered down, frightening him. His guardian opened the door to look at the hail & he scooted out between her legs. This story has a happy ending as he was found late at night & got to sleep in his warm crate. Tips to manage pups in a storm;
Provide a safe & secure place like their crate & cover it.
Don't fuss or try & comfort pup as this makes it worse, they pick up on your anxiety. Pups generally aren't afraid of storms.
Distract pup from the noise, turn on radio or TV.
Be aware of storm warnings & if you are not home make sure pup is safe.
Have a name tag on pups collar in case he does get away.
