Help for dogs who are afraid of thunderstorms

One common question from dog owners is this: What Can I do About my dog's fear of thunder?

There are two things to do when your dog cowers or shakes during a thunderstorm, or other loud noises such as fireworks. Distract him or her with a favorite game or activity involving praise and treats. Provide the sort of comfort that young puppies seek from their mothers: close contact, warmth, snuggling.
