Any Old Treat in a Storm

We were under severe weather warnings last night.  Bentley doesn’t mind the rain, but when the thunder rolls, he is not a fan.  I wrote a review last month about the SmartPetLove Safe & Sound 4-in-1 Harness.  It is the harness with the heartbeat and it does a tremendous job of calming Bentley.  As soon as we knew the storm was approaching, we put him in his lightweight tee shirt and turned on his heartbeat harness.

A treat always helps during times of thunder.
Is your pet afraid of thunderstorms?  How do you handle it?

  1. Thunder doesn't bother me at all, I just sleep during it. Of course I also like watchin fireworks, which I think makes me kinda different, BOL!

  2. it doesn't bother me much,I generally snooze through storms,xx Speedy

  3. Thunder doesn't bother my two! :-)

  4. Oh, I've never come across the harnesses with heartbeats! We have thundershirts, but these sound really interesting! I will have to look into them, thanks for the info!

  5. Silly boy, it is only noise! My big sis Katie gets scared too. Bailie and I could care less. So glad your harness helps you out.

  6. Betley I'm glad your have something what helps you when a thunderstorm comes to your area. I always used the closet as a bomb shelter... but since last year I only bark at that thunder and at fireworks and I lost my fear... a miracle...

  8. Glad that harness works well for you Bentley - stay safe

  9. None of them really like storms, Sheba especially hates the wind. I'll usually just take them downstairs to our finished cellar where it's quieter. I don't like storms either so I prefer going down there anyway!

  13. Hey Bentley!
    Wow, I've never seen that before and I'm so glad it helps you feel better! I get a little nervous, but nothing major. Frankie sometimes wears his Thundershirt.
    Hey Pierre!
    Wow, I think I missed your barkday! I'm so sorry buddy. Happy belated barkday to you and I'm sending you wishes for a wonderful year. Hope it was great!!

  14. Bentley looks good in his t-shirt. We don't like storms much either.

  15. We hope your harness helped you through the storms. We are lucky to not care at all about the thunder. Sometimes we bark at it.

  16. BOL!!!! OMD, Bentley you are just TOO CUTE!!!!! OMD, I thinks I gotta say, that is one pawsome harness! Nows the thundershirt does nothin' for me, I wonder if this would do betters. I am not afraid of thunderstorms or anythings, butts it's the vettie visits that freak me out! Ma will check this out!
