My poor dog is terrified of this thunder and lightening sad.
I've already decided to let him sleep on the spare bed tonight, somehow that makes it more bearable for him confused

Anyone else got troubled animals?

I know other staffy owners that use thundershirts for their dogs, makes them feel calm or putting an old tshirt on them.

What's a thundershirt?

He did sleep in the spare room in the end, I'd never considered the smell of us to be a comfort to him.

He seems to be well over it now though!

Thank you claimed!

I wasn't expecting practical advice and they look really interesting.

Your welcome, my staffy is scared of nothing so I've never tried it but it's worth trying a snug fitting tshirt as that might be cheaper than the thunder shirt.

Our staffy is scared of practically everything grin
If he likes the t-shirt he'll be wearing it often!
