This Dog Is Reunited With His Owner After A Tornado

This is a very emotional moment when this man gets to see his dog again after a horrific tornado.

Why are dogs so scared of storms?

For most of us, thunderstorms are an inconvenience at best and a source of awe-inspiring natural beauty at worst. But for our canine friends, storms can be a truly terrifying experience. Dogs are sensitive to changes in barometric pressure, which can occur before a storm hits. They may also pick up on cues from their human companions, who may be tense or anxious in the lead-up to a storm. Once the storm arrives, dogs may be scared by the sound of thunder, the smell of rain, or the sudden drop in temperature. In some cases, dogs may even try to escape the house in an attempt to find shelter from the storm. Fortunately, there are steps that pet owners can take to help ease their dogs’ anxiety during storms. Creating a safe space for them to retreat to, providing them with a ThunderShirt or calming supplement, and desensitizing them to storm sounds through positive reinforcement training can all go a long way towards helping dogs weather the storm.

One theory is that thunderstorms remind dogs of gunfire. Dogs have extremely sensitive hearing, and the sound of thunder can be overwhelming to their ears. In addition, the flashes of lightning may resemble the muzzle flashes from guns, causing dogs to become even more frightened. Another possibility is that storms trigger a fight-or-flight response in dogs. The sound of the thunder may cause them to feel like they are in danger, and their instinct is to flee or hide. Regardless of the reason, it is important to remember that storms can be very stressful for dogs. If possible, try to provide them with a safe space during a storm, such as a crate or a small room where they can take refuge from the noise and lights.
