Dogs don't like thunderstorms
A lot of dogs (most?) are uncomfortable or even afraid during heavy thunderstorms. Their hearing is very sensitive, and no doubt they are sensible to avoid being caught in unprotected outdoor areas when lightning is a serious threat. Our old girl doesn't like electrical storms one bit, even though she's in the safety of our house. She squeezes herself into a confined area and pulls soft comforting materials around her. She still looks frightened, doesn't she? Before and after making a few photos, I petted and comforted her as best I could.
