Any suggestions on how to handle my puppy's first thunderstorm? (By first, I mean his first with me. I dunno if he ever experienced one while he was at the breeder's or not.) We're supposed to get storms tonight and tomorrow (in addition to a chance of ice and snow.
I'm not as worried during the day as I am at night. Merlin sleeps in my living room because that's where his x-pen and potty area is. I can hear him if he makes a loud fuss, but I won't hear if he is quietly cowering or something.
So far he doesn't seem bothered by loud noises. In fact, he's slept through ne using my fairly loud blender as well as barely reacting to the vacuum, none of which can hold a candle to the loudest thunder crack.
With our bichons, we didn't really do anything out of the ordinary during thunderstorms and none are/were afraid of thunder.
I guess my question is, should I be worried at all about it, or just play it by ear? I'm thinking that, if it does storm tonight and there is loud thunder, I may discreetly check up on him and see how he's doing and then go from there. If he seems fine, don't do anything, but if he seems frightened, I'll figure out I guess.
I think I'm rambling right now, but I guess my question is, is there anything that I should
do? Or should I not be so worried about it?
Again, sorry for the rambling post! (As all of mine seem to he haha)
